About Heritage Chair Caning & Furniture Restoration
Caning is an art that started in the 1800s. My grandfather, Tom O’Kelley, started caning some 50 years ago. Before he died, he was able to teach me, J. O’Kelley, how to do all the different types of caning.
I began caning chairs in 1987 and have also learned how to completely restore furniture through the help and advice of my father, James O'Kelley, and even a few books. The best teacher of course is experience, and we have had many challenging pieces.
Our family has been dedicated to the business for over 30 years in building a relationship with our customers and associates to making our business a personal and friendly experience.
The J. O’Kelley Rocker
My very own rocking chair, the J. O’Kelley Rocker, has been around since 1914 and was created by the Georgia Chair Company. After they went out of business in 2016, I began to make the rocker because I knew it was of heirloom quality. Featuring an age-old design, the J. O’Kelley Rocker is made out of red oak lumber with square post and steam bent parts. We can paint or finish in any color of your choice.
In 33 years of business, I have restored hundreds of these rockers for people—these years of experience prove that our rocker is heirloom quality. These rockers are priced currently at $400 each. When you purchase this rocker, you can be certain that each piece of furniture is handcrafted with great care, quality, and workmanship. I'm proud to sell this rocker and to stamp the O'Kelley name on every piece.
