Cane Dining Chair FAQs

Are cane back dining chairs comfortable?

They are on the firm side but comfortable, and they can provide you with great support. If you don't like it firm, you can place a soft cushion on it.

Are Cane Chairs Durable?

High-quality cane furniture can last between 30 and 40 years, and they are a very rewarding investment that can be passed down.

Are rattan and cane the same?

Both rattan and cane come from the rattan plant. With the practice of stripping the rattan plant, the thinner material is the result of cane.
