About Jeffrey Michaels

Jeffrey Michaels is one of the premiere representatives and distributors for decorative fabrics, trimmings, wallcoverings, drapery hardware, natural window coverings, and outdoor/indoor furniture. We specialize in products designed for the upper end residential and hospitality design community.

We began in 1993 and today have a 9600 square foot showroom and office in the South Florida Design Park (under 2 miles away from our previous location at the DCOTA) and have 4 of our own outside sales representatives to service the design trade throughout Florida.

We are known for our superior customer service and our friendly atmosphere. Most of our employees have been with us for many years and therefore are extremely knowledgeable about our products, and have built great relationships with our designers. If you’re not already one of our valued clients, we welcome you to experience the difference at Jeffrey Michaels.
