They denote three different qualities of cane webbing:

  • S - Superior, i.e. special quality, for chair seat seats, such as bentwood chairs, Thonet chair or even bench. The rattan sheets are extremely strong, so it can withstand loads.
  • N - Normal, i.e. first-class, with butter colour, can be used for radiator covers UK or as a door panel or cabinet door panel, or to repair chair backrest. At first glance, it resembles the superior quality.
  • D - decor quality, white-coloured, not so strong in quality, but has its strength in price, as it is much cheaper.

What do the fractions in article numbers stand for?

Where did the name Thonet come from?

Michael Thonet, master carpenter, founder of a bentwood furniture factory in Vienna, pioneer of furniture production and furniture design. His work, Thonet Chair No. 14, is known to everyone. The seat on the curved wooden edge is made of Thonet with open cane webbing, very comfortable and ensures good ventilation. These types of chairs are easy to maintain and have an extremely long lifespan. They have been designed for good blowability. However, we should avoid standing on the Thonet chair to fetch a vase from the top shelf. The strips of Thonet material can not tolerate this type of load. If these chairs are still damaged, the seat can be replaced. Repairing wicker chairs can do DIY, with a little dexterity even at home.
