            SPECIALTIES > WICKER FURNITURE REPAIR & RESTORATION
             

            Did you know that wicker furniture originated in ancient Egypt over 3000 years ago B.C.? Woven with natural materials, authentic wicker pieces are constructed with willow, rattan, reed, & bamboo. Most of what is referred to now as “wicker” is not the wicker furniture our parents and grandparents owned at all—it’s resin wicker, made from synthetic materials and just isn’t worth restoring.

            Do you have antique wicker furniture you’d like to restore? We repair,
            re-weave, and restore authentic wicker furniture.

            When To Restore?

            10 questions to ask now to help you decide if it's time to restore your treasured pieces.

            Antique wicker furniture had a “heyday” in the U.S. for a time. In 1851, The Wakefield Rattan Company was founded by Cyrus Wakefield, who became known as the “Father of Wicker”. By 1897, Wakefield merged his wicker company with Heywood Brothers & Company and together they formed the Heywood-Wakefield Company—the largest maker of wicker furniture in the United States.

            Unfortunately, the demand for wicker furniture dwindled and the company closed in 1979—which means there aren’t many of these originals still around. If you have one, you've got a rare piece of history that is certainly worth restoring.

            The art of restoring vintage wicker furniture has faded as much as the authentic production of it has. Fortunately, the master craftsmen of Mumford Restoration work to keep this traditional art form alive and to restore popular period pieces, such as Heywood-Wakefield wicker furniture. This is an original Heywood-Wakefield wicker dinette set we restored from the early 1900s.

            The wicker furniture we recall from our childhood was used as much for indoor furniture as it was for outdoor spaces. After many years of use and being exposed to the elements, the weave can become weak and frayed—and the paint faded and chipped. Mumford Restoration can repair and restore your cherished wicker furniture.
