Brigitte came recommended and so I was glad that she accepted the repair to the back of a sweet fire side armchair which had been in the family for a very long time. I dropped it off at her workshop and it took some time as Brigitte is very busy. Worth all the waiting as she is one of these rare gems continuing with the cane craft and she has skill-fully restored the backing of the chair to its former beauty. Thank you Brigitte, we are very pleased and grateful. I hope you keep your wonderful work going for a long time. Beautiful chair rescued and restored to its glory ... and back in use

Brigitte recaned our Danish rocking chair with great attention to detail and care to replicate the original weave. She also arranged to return the chair locally for a small fee when it was finished. Great craftmanship and an affordable price. Thank you. Great craftsmanship

A sympathetic restoration of a rush seated Liberty arm chair. It had to be taken to pieces and reglued in the process and now looks lovely. Bridget had our chair in her workshop for a long time , hence not so many stars, but the wait was worth it for the result.

slow but painstaking work

To try repairing a cane chair seemed impossible until we came across Brigitte at Cane Corner. She has done a fabulous job replacing the cane on a high chair and even advised us as to how to look after the cane once replaced. Well done Brigitte! A profesional repair to a cane chair.

Totally splendid job made on two rush seats on our ladder back dining room chairs. Excellent, helpful and friendly service. We’re absolutely delighted with the results. Work was completed with exceptional efficiency. Re-rushing two ladder back chairs

Thank you for an excellent job on our little Victorian Deportment chair. The restoration work has been sympathetically done and matches in beautifully and the cane seat is superb. It is a joy to behold!

Excellent restoration work.

Thank you for such a beautiful repair to our Danish cane magazine shelf. Beautifully matched cane and stained to blend in, a joy to watch such craftsmanship in action. Thank you Brigitte! Perfect.

Brigitte’s highly skilled workmanship, care, thoughtfulness & attention to detail & look are beyond compare. She restored our Edwardian steamer chair to its former glory without losing its antiquity. We are delighted. Superb craftsmanship

Brigitte did a fantastic job re-caning a little armchair which had been in the family for generations. Not only did she get the job done very quickly and expertly, but made essential repairs along the way to ensure the chair goes on for future generations. So pleased with her work. Thank you Brigitte.

Thank you so much for making an absolutely wonderful job of my customers chair seat. I’m very pleased with the quality of the craftsmanship and service that you have provided. Best wishes from Mark Woodcare & Repair Furniture restoration.😀

Wonderful service 😀👍

Brigitte’s craftsmanship is outstanding. She used Ilminster rushes that she harvested herself to restore my chair. She also reglued it. Brigitte is very busy, and my chair was gone for quite some time, but it has returned looking superb. Cane Corner

I did not think it would be possible to repair our worn cane chairs but Brigitte worked her magic and they are amazing – good as new. It is a pleasure to see such a skilled and enthusiastic craftsperson’s work. You must be prepared to wait but it is worth it.

Amazing repair

Excellent service. Brigitte is friendly and very knowledgable. She repaired one of a pair of chairs for us and and you really can’t see the difference between the original and the repaired one. She went above and beyond to do a very professional job Superb repair

Brigitte has recaned a little late Victorian bedroom chair beautifully; and cleaned the wood. The chair now looks perfect. The caning has been done with great expertise and precision.

Cane chair beautifully restored

I needed cane seats for a canoe I’m building, and Brigitte was really kind and helpful. She showed me what to do while I was with her for tuition, and I was able to finish them off at home. I would highly recommend Brigitte for anyone who needs some cane-work doing. She is highly experienced, and the quality of her work is amazing..

Cane Corner have recently restored a pair of fragile little antique chairs for me to a very high standard. All prices & options were discussed in detail beforehand. A tricky broken leg was also repaired top notch. Brigitte’s skill in the unique craft of re-caning chair seats is a pleasure to behold, & the chairs will easily see a few more generations now. I will definitely be sending more items in the future. East Budleigh (birthplace of Sir Walter Raleigh) is an exceptionally pretty village & well worth a detour. Thank you Cane Corner! Well done Cane Corner!

I am absolutely thrilled with the transformation in my chair. The restoration work that Cane Corner have done to this family heirloom is just brilliant. They may have taken quite a long time to do the work, but the end result was been well worth the wait. I thoroughly recommend Cane Corner for their beautiful rush work. Thank you
