Company History


Michael Charles made a business from his passion for fine woodworking in 1993.  Michael Charles Cabinetmakers opened in Kent, Connecticut offering custom, New England style, furniture made by Michael and our other cabinetmakers in our first workshop in Sherman, CT.

During the first 10 years we produced a wide range of custom wall units, libraries and offices as well as tables, desks, dressers, beds, and other custom furniture.  Once clients purchased a Michael Charles desk or dining room table, it was a natural progression for them to request additional cabinetry and room detailing to compliment the furniture.  Our reputation for quality in everything we do has allowed us to easily enter the highest levels of the homebuilding market.

In 2004, Michael Charles Artisan Builders became the overarching entity responsible for designing and building new homes and executing major renovations to existing homes.  Our millwork shop continues to design and build custom cabinetry, millwork, and furniture providing a start-to-finish resource for the discriminating home owner.
