Angie Reid’s Furniture Refinishing and Caning preserves memories and brings old furniture new life! The business located on the border of Maine and New Brunswick, Canada, serves the Maritime provinces in both Canada and Maine.
I started my business after stripping and refinishing the stairs in my Victorian Era home. Shortly after launching my refinishing business, a neighbor brought me a cane chair in need of a new seat.
While learning hole to hole caning I discovered a talent and passion for seat weaving. I am proficient in hole-to-hole caning, sheet cane, French hand cane, Danish cord, rush and reed weaving.
In terms of refinishing, I restore heirlooms and breath new life into pieces with paint and/or stain. I specialize in custom colour staining and also wicker repair.
East Street Arts is dedicated to fostering the creation of art through artisan training programs, workshops, and community interactions for persons of all abilities.
In our chair caning studio, Association of Artisans to Cane, we provide hands-on learning to artists of all abilities in the craft of seat weaving.
The artists use these skills to restore chairs for community members with oversight from highly trained staff. Each artist has the opportunity to learn various forms of seat weaving, including hand cane, pressed cane, paper rush, and flat reed/splint weaving, as well as other techniques.
The artists advance at their own pace; as one style of seat weaving is mastered, another style is taught. While most of the seat weaving is done to restore chairs for community members, donated chairs in good condition are also restored and sold in the shop.

Since 1978 REED WEAVER’S commitment has been to the continuing appreciation of wicker as an art form through quality wickerwork.
In 1996, Reed was the first Minnesota artist invited to show her work at the new Neiman Marcus Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.
And in 2011 she was contracted by an airworthiness inspector for Boeing to create a replica of the original wicker seat used in the Spirit of St Louis airplane that Charles Lindbergh flew. The project was completed in June of 2012. Reed named ‘her’ Spirit Sophia and has included Spirit Sophia’s photo here.

Owner Sandra Rosar, has been weaving for over 45 years and worked at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, VA and has restored pieces for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.

Sandra receives projects from many areas of the country that require imagination, creativity, engineering, and fine, detailed restoration to skillfully bring the piece back to its original condition. She maintains a shop with a master woodworker who assists with projects if needed and has just as many years of experience in refinishing, gluing, repairing, and restoration as Sandra.
Den of Antiquity works on all types of furniture, from antique to modern, in homes, hotels, offices, restaurants, yachts, and will travel to your location when requested to do so. No job is too big or small, simple or complicated!
