Create your own masterpiece with quality made-to-order furniture and upholstery.

What is it about your business and products that makes them a great choice for clients inside and out of the home?

California Sofa began 15 years ago and is located in San Rafael, owned and operated by Chris Michna. The business specializes in designing and building custom sofas, sectionals and much more. California Sofa has the capability of making anything in the realm of upholstery. If you see something anywhere (another store, catalog or website), chances are we can do it better and for a better value.

What sets your approach apart?

Everything is made to order. People hear “custom” and become intimidated. That is not the case at California Sofa, the process has been streamlined into three basic steps. You choose style and configuration, then fabric or leather (from an extensive selection) and seat cushion choices from either foam or synthetic down. You create your own masterpiece, it’s fun and creative and we are here to make it that way.

What sets California Sofa apart from the rest of the pack?

We produce pieces to the inch in length, depth and height — other stores are simply not able to offer the level of customization and short production times (our production time ranges from four to six weeks).

How are you disrupting your industry?

California Sofa owns its factory and all the custom upholstery is made in California and we use the most environmentally friendly materials available in our production. With the growing trend of reclining sofas and sectionals, California Sofa is now offering a very stylish full-motion reclining line that can be configured in various ways. We offer a wide array of home furnishing products from floor to ceiling.
