faux bamboo chippendale chair


this is a widely popular chair that has made it's way around the web a time or two...well, now the faux bamboo chippendale has landed in my house thanks to mom and dad. i have been asking mom for it for about six yrs now...saying you know when you get tired of it, i will gladly take that off of your hands. well this christmas, it magically appeared as one of my presents! and i couldn't be happier. my husband on the other hand was thinking "great, just what we need another chair". the one catch to it was it's cane seat had worn through.
at first we were going to try and replace the caning but we couldn't find any cane locally. so i suggested we pull it off and put an upholstered seat on it. i decided on chiang mai dragon for the cushion fabric. on my last trip home, i took the chair and 'Sha Ron' worked his magic...now i am just left to decide if i am painting her or not....i was thinking a chartreuse green to match a wing chair i have in the room....good thing mom is on her way here...i am putting her to work!

Can't wait to see what you decide, paint-wise. I do love the chiang mai fabric.
I'm currently debating what to do with mine - fabric and paint. The possibilities are endless!

I am actually having a similar dilemma with a pair of cane-backed chairs from my parents! I have the same chiang mai fabric to recover the cushions, but I am still wrestling with the paint or not to paint question.

I can't wait to see how your turn out!

Good Evening, your blog just came across a google alert for Chair Caning, I am a chair caner from Bridgewater, VA.
Chair cane would have been so easy for you to obtain down there.
ncbasketworks.com has complete chair caning supplies.
I am a professional basket weaver and chair caner for the past 20 years. I am a member of the Artisans Center of VA, and have woven for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
I want to also add, that even though I love to see chairs re-caned, your fabric cushions look very nice on that style of chair.

It looks great, I love the fabric that you picked out. I think a bright green would be hot too, any color would be beautiful though!

I have been looking for 6 of the faux bamboo chippendale side chairs and was hoping you could point me in the right direction without spending the $500 a piece from Jonathon Adler. Any help??? Thanks!
