What we do

Custom made upholstery

Custom – Made Upholstery ranges from your basic sofas and chairs, to more detailed projects like headboards, cornices, decorative pillows, bed wear, slip covers, shades and drapery; the possibilities are endless.  


Family heirlooms are treasures. Our staff at Mike & Sons also specializes in restoration of furniture.  On most restorations, all insides are replaced (I.e., springs, webbing, batting, etc.), but still keeping the original fabric on. Our experts are masters in carefully removing the fabric, restoring, and returning your piece back to life. 
We also specialize in re gluing of furniture. On most cases, if required pieces are taken apart, dowels are replaced and all previous glue is cleaned, then your piece is put back together.


Professional Refinishing of furniture is also available. If you need a quote you may bring in the piece into our workroom to have it looked at or mail or e-mail a photo with dimensions for an approximate cost of the labor. You may also request a free in-home estimate (within 10 miles of our facility) There are various colors of stain to choose from to give your furniture the desired look.  

Fancy slip covers

Slip Covering gives you freedom to choose!  If you want a summer and a winter look or simply if to have the option of removing your covers, slip covering is certainly the way to go. Virtually any style you imagine can be created. In difference to other work rooms, we request pick up of the furniture desired for slip covering for perfect fit. The owner of Mike & Sons’ over (3) decades experience shines, when it comes to slip covering.  Her attention to detail is second to none, making sure all the lines or floral patters are matched perfectly, making a real master piece out of the slip covers.

Cushion replacement

We do all types of cushion replacements. The most common cushion replacement is:  Foam – Wrapped in Dacron.

We also offer down envelopes which is the higher end seat cushions.  

What is an envelope?   It’s simply three cushions sewn into one. The top and bottom layers are a blend of down and feathers and the middle cushion is very soft foam. What this does is give you the comfort of down, while the middle foam insert hold its nice crisp look. Prices vary depending on the size of the cushions and also on the blend type desired. The higher the blend of down the higher the price is.

Headboards & cornices

Nice accents to any bedroom are headboards and cornices. We offer a large selection of shapes and sizes to better fit your décor. Headboards are an important accent of a design theme.


We are pleased to offer an extensive array of designer upholstery and drapery fabrics from most major fabric brand names.
