What is a desk pedestal?

By Sam Knijff
- 1 minutes read

A desk pedestal refers to a type of standalone storage unit that typically accompanies an office desk. The pedestal usually has multiple drawers, providing space for files, documents, and office supplies. They can be found in various sizes, but a common design includes a shallow top drawer for stationery and two deeper drawers for files.

There are two main types of desk pedestals:

  • Mobile Pedestals: These are mounted on casters or wheels, making them easy to move around. They are often designed to fit underneath a desk, saving space in office setups.

  • Fixed Pedestals: These are often attached directly to the desk itself or are meant to be placed beside the desk without the convenience of wheels. They are more permanent than mobile pedestals.

Pedestals can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, or a combination of both, and they often match the material and design of the accompanying desk.
