The golden age of caned chairs began during the Regency period.
With the development of the East India Company, the "rotang" from Indonesia (erotin in French) became the rod most used for caning armchairs.

The characteristics of wicker chairs are almost the same as those covered with fabric.
Only the backrest is sometimes lower. The armrests rest on a small stop of about 3 cm corresponding to the thickness of the cushion which protects the cane.
