The pedestal desk. It’s the oldest and most widely used desk shape in all of human history. There’s not much thought that needs to be put into it right? I mean a desk that has been used for centuries must be easy to pick because they are traditional pieces of office furniture that can’t be improved upon, or can it? That’s a great question, Madison Liquidators have excellent pedestal desks that are very traditional in their appearance such as this pedestal desk shell.

Our partner Boss Office Products provides this pedestal desk shell as part of their Commerce Laminate series. From this laminate desk shell, you have many customization options, or you can choose to purchase the shell alone. You can select either one or two pedestal drawers for storage. Beyond that, options for keyboard trays, desk organizers, monitor arms, and power modules. Boss does an excellent job of providing a “basic shell” that can be upgraded to a state-of-the-art pedestal desk. It’s up to you how you build it. Finish options for the commercial grade laminate are Cherry, Driftwood, Mahogany, and Mocha which are excellent traditional office wood finishes. Boss Office Products offers a one-year warranty on their office furniture.

Manufacturers are always looking to innovate and modernize the office furniture on the market. Just by taking the simple design cues, many pedestal desk can have an upscale appearance to them. Minor changes go a long way in providing an opulent look. Check out this example.

Starting Price- $975.00

A Pedestal desk from our partner Corp Design as part of their Potenza series of office furniture. Aren’t your eyes drawn to two special parts of this traditional pedestal desk. The drawer pulls that are made from aluminum and catch the eyes easily as a contrast against the finish of the commercial grade laminate. The other eye-catching focal point is the ergonomic taper of the desktop at the chair opening. Both of these give the overall look of the office furniture a perceived upgrade from a standard desk chair. The commercial grade laminate finish can be chosen between Corp Design’s signature finishes of Blanc De Gris, Espresso CD, Grigio CD, Miele, and Noce. This pedestal desk also has customization options for the drawers, keyboard trays, power modules, and monitor arms allowing you to make the perfect pedestal desk for your office space. Size options below, but note the largest desk also provides a bow front pedestal desk option, which is an excellent upgrade for anyone who receives guests in their office regularly. Corp Design also provides a ten-year warranty on all of their office furniture.

Size Options

  • 60" x 30" Desk Shell
  • 72" x 30" Desk Shell
  • 66" x 30" Pedestal Desk

Beyond premium material accessories, pedestal desks are customized to fit the workspace that is available. We have already taken a look at a couple of standard sized pedestal desks, but there are many options for both smaller and larger desks. We will look at both, but first let’s look at a small pedestal desk for reference.

For reference I returned to the Potenza series from Corp Design as a way to directly correlate the size difference of this desk and the previous one. This version has all the options for the bells and whistles as the previous one but in a much smaller frame. This pedestal desk saves square footage where it’s needed. If you have a larger office, naturally you will want a larger desk, but if the office space is small then this is a great place to start. Also, the finishes and the warranty are the same. Note the size option differences for the smaller office space.

Size Options

  • 48" x 24" Rectangular Desk Shell
  • 60" x 30" Rectangular Desk Shell
  • 66" x 24" Rectangular Desk Shell
  • 72" x 24" Rectangular Desk Shell
  • 72" x 30" Rectangular Desk Shell

Now, let’s take a look at a larger desk. I chose one with exceptional storage solutions. This version will need to be placed against a wall for stability of the overhead storage frame.

Returning to Harmony Collection, this time from their modern Elements series this pedestal desk is straight up modern design. Typical of modern design, the office furniture strips away most of its compartmentalized sections by providing open clear spaces. This can often mean a minimalist appearance and the Elements series provides just that. A desktop, four legs, and options for a mobile pedestal drawer. The desktop will contrast with the legs with these choices of finishes- Aspen, Espresso, Maple, Modern Walnut, Newport Gray, and White.
