Michaels Green Upholstery

Michael’s Custom Built Inc. is a progressive upholstery shop, We build
new furniture and Reupholster, Recycle, Restyle, Reduce, Reuse, Redesign,
Recover and Redecorate your Residence and Commercial offices, hotel, wineries
and restaurants. We have the resources to make any upholstered piece more earth
friendly. We carry unique natural fiber fillers and fabrics such as silk, wool,
cork, linen, and cotton.

Michael’s offers clients an environmentally conscience product without
compromising on design or style. Either a new piece of furniture or the reworking
of an old treasured piece we are committed meeting every client’s individual
needs and desires.

In the past few years Michael’s has researched and located sources
from around the world to supply us with natural and organic materials for our
Green Furniture clients.

When creating a piece of new environmentally friendly furniture we use
organic cotton and hemp for our batting, ticking, and webbing. Our frames are
made from recycled wood or F.S.C. (Forest Steward Council) certified wood. We
use low V.O.C. glues and adhesives and latex rubber.

In our small way we feel
proud that we are encouraging the reduction of furniture waste in our
overcrowded landfills. By reupholstering furniture and building new furniture
using the most renewable resources we are helping to protect our soil, water,
and air.
