Buying Guide

Cane dining chairs are stylish, and despite the lightweight construction materials, they often have a weight capacity between 150-300 lbs.

If you invest in robust cane dining chairs with an integrated metallic frame in their base, this unit can hold weights of up to 300 lbs. You can find several high-quality wicker loungers and cane chairs with weight capacities that range between 300-500 lbs.

However, if you buy a standard cane product that doesn’t come with a clearly defined weight capacity, likely, this dining chair won’t hold much more than 200 lbs. Look for cane furniture with a tight dense weave for optimal weight-bearing properties.

Cane dining chairs are a comfortable choice for casual or formal dining areas, especially upholstery models.

Cane dining chairs often feature a woven back and seat, which conform slightly to your body and help distribute your weight evenly, taking pressure off your spine and hip joints. For upper body support, look for chairs that come with armrests and high backs that curve inward in the lumbar region.

If you enjoy long meals or use the dining table for hosting guests or game nights, opt for cane dining chairs with upholstered seats. The seat should have 1”-2” of foam padding or sinuous springs and soft upholstery fabric such as linen, cotton microfiber, or polyester.

Regular cleaning and maintenance are key to caring for cane dining chairs. Dust with a static duster, and wipe down with a soft microfiber cloth and mild soapy water for stubborn stains.

Cane has a natural elasticity, so cane dining chair seats can begin to sag with prolonged use. If the seats aren’t too overstretched or broken, you can revive your cane dining chairs and restore their seat comfort by tightening the woven strands. Turn the chairs upside down and place a warm, damp cloth over the underside of the seat. Let the cloth and the chair air dry in this position overnight. This causes the cane to shrink and firm up the seat pressure. Do not allow anyone to sit on the chair for at least 48 hours.

If your chair has a solid wood frame, rub it with linseed oil once every month to maintain its strength and shine.
