Customer's Own Material (COM)

Our Customer's Own Material (COM) program allows you to tailor Steelcase furniture and seating products for a customized look. Select Steelcase seating and furniture products accommodate hundreds of textiles from many leading fabric suppliers. With the customer's own material web tool, you can find a textile that is already approved on your product, or you can submit a request to have a new one tested.

Once you have selected an approved textile, use one of the calculators to find out the exact yardage required.

Please note that Materials specified through our COM and Graded-in program are warranted differently by each supplier and do not fall under Steelcase warranty. Additionally, if the material is found to be covered under a COM supplier's warranty, Steelcase is not responsible for additional costs from replacement products or labor.

These materials are also subject to varying lead times: Availability is based on supplier’s stock on hand.
