Fiber-rush chair seat replacement

Some chairs can have their backs woven like the one pictured here.  As long as there are four rails, preferably with enough room to pass a fist all around them (like the sides and bottom of this one), you can have a fiber-rush panel put in.  A back panel something like the one pictured here but with a more unobstructed top rail would be priced at a minimum $100.00.

Chair back

Fiber-rush is a man-made twisted kraft paper that very closely resembles the natural rush historically used on Shaker style chairs, ladder-backs, Hitchcock and hitchcock style chairs, and others.  Any chair with four sturdy seat rails can be done in fiber.   Fiber is a much more practical alternative to natural rush for every day use and is much, much cheaper.  It is durable, and will hold up better when in constant use.  A well made fiber seat will last anywhere from 5-25 years or more, as long as you don't let your cats, dogs or rabbits get to them...if you have cats, you know the damage they do!    

I do not do natural rushing myself, but am acquainted with a master rusher and will be happy to refer you to him should you desire natural rush.

 

Prices start at $45.00 for a standar size chair seat, without arms or rockers.  Seat inserts, like those shown on the right of this page, are typically $75.00 for an average size...more if they are huge!  Again, there is that pesky $10 fee if you do not remove the old material first.

 

As with all types seat replacement there is a fee for removal of the old material.
