Woven Furniture Care & Questions

Mid-century modern is one of the most popular trends in furniture design. The period between 1933 and 1965 focused on improving daily life through making things simply beautiful. Mid-century modern design is all about clean lines, simplicity, and practicality.

Woven Furniture Care and Cleaning, Caning Canada

New Cord vs. Vintage Cord

Danish Cord Furniture - Care

Some people spray a scotch guard on the Danish cord surfaces to stop stains from absorbing. If something spills on the Danish cord use a damp cloth to clean the spill as soon as possible. Vacuuming once in a while is always a good practice.

How to Clean Danish Paper Cord with Soap Flakes (Try at your own risk as Danish Cord is Paper)

1. Pour boiling water over soap flakes. Make sure all flakes are completely dissolved

2. Allow mixture to cool slightly

3. While water is warm, use a soft cloth to gently wipe the paper cord. Do not get the seat too wet

4. Allow to dry and then repeat if necessary

Broken Danish Cord

My Danish cord chair is breaking at the front and back edges can you fix the broken pieces?

The front and back runs of the Danish cord tend to be breaking points of this type of furniture after long-term use. Once these pieces of material break it is time to replace the full Danish cord surface. Contact Caning Canada to have your Danish cord chair repaired.

Cane Furniture Care & Use

Cane can be cleaned using a wood soap; an example being Murphy's Oil Soap and a soft cloth. Do not use the chair for two days to let the cane fully dry.


Oil the cane on your furniture once or twice a year using lemon or teak oil. Apply the oil to the bottom porous side of the cane and wipe off the excess after 15 minutes.


Avoid putting cane furniture in hot, dry or sunny rooms. Also, avoid putting cane furniture near heat vents as it will dry out the cane and make it brittle.


Never stand on a cane chair. Cane is extremely strong when weight is evenly distributed across the surface.

Cane stretches when you sit on it which allows for the stress of even weight distribution. Over time the stretch will sag. When the cane loses its ability to stretch it will begin to break along the chair from or within the sag. You can extend the life of your cane furniture by wetting the underside of the chair with a warm wet towel and then letting it dry to tighten the sag. Do not use the chair for two days to let it fully dry and tighten.


Cane doesn't need to be sealed or stained as it will naturally colour with age. If you choose to stain the cane use an oil-based stain on the top side of the cane not the porous bottom of the cane. The bottom side is used to oil your cane to retain moisture.
