Pattern & Style >>> Caning

Monday, May 2, 2011

Deep rooted in furniture making history is the technique of Caning -- weaving cane or rattan to create a strong & solid texture.  Typically taking form for a chair seat or back, influenced in style through various decorative periods.  A cane seat & back Rocking Chair exemplifies a look popular during the Victorian Era;  Mid-century Danish Modern pieces incorporated the style in the form of seating & case goods;  Designers in the 1960/70s took to relaying the repetitive pattern of Caning to the design of fabrics and wallpaper -- I have an early memory of green & white Caning drapery hanging in the Sunroom of our Larchmont, NY home, circa 1972.

It's 2011 and the Caning pattern is considered just as fresh as it was at the turn of the century, with examples found throughout the Hi & Low home furnishings & accessories markets.  Check out more below.
