As pictured: 43052-15, 43110-8, -6, and -7. While none of these chairs bears any stamping to indicate genuine leather, some of the surfaces seem awfully former-cow to us. But because we aren’t certain, you’ll save a lot of money. And the great thing about these cushy executive napping chairs is that they’re on wheels, so you can easily roll Mr. Burns from one meeting to the next without disturbing his dreams.
We have a very strong selection of file cabinets in a variety of colors and styles. Photo represents a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly.Please note: most file cabinets we have do not come with keys. If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet.

UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not.
43120-2. This is the perfect desk to plop into the middle of an office full of same-y-same matching desks in a sea of cubicle jockeys just to see who claims it. Kind of like when you realize your mild-mannered insurance agent rolls up in a Harley. This desk comes with electrical connections and measures 6’ x 35” x 52”H.
43174-2. Here’s a metal & glass TV & TV equipment stand that sports guitar-pick shaped tiers reminiscent of atomic-age Formica patterns. Set it all up, grab Astro, and start your TV bingeing! Measures approximately 40 x 26 x 56 ½”H. By Peerless.
43146-72. Standard issue in nicer 1970s and ‘80s offices just before the cubicle boom, this very well-preserved desk has all its necessary bits and features a surface that, from afar, looks like wood but, from a-near, is actually that easy-to-clean laminate stuff. Just on the cusp of collectible, you might as well snag it early! Measures 3’ x 70” x 29”H.

42799-14 and -15. If Wes Anderson ever makes a steampunk flick set in a Rube Goldberg warehouse full of colorful curmudgeons and plucky state workers, these chairs will command whatever screen time is not taken up by Willem Dafoe in a funny hat and a talking forklift created entirely from old dental equipment and Lincoln Logs. Marked Angle Steel Co., Plainwell, Mich, Model No. 110.
L-R: 43096-21 and -20. When it rains retro-industrial wood & metal chairs it fairly well pours in our warehouse. Yes, these chairs are a rarity, but we’ve an embarrassment of riches at this particular time (well, like, 4 or 5, but given that these chairs don’t appear much at all, this is a great time for collectors to snag a set). You’ll note that the chair at left in the photo seems to have a crooked back, but this is an adjustable back that needs only some elbow grease and a wrench to be ship shape.
42657-47. This would be your steampunky dentist’s stool if you had a steampunky dentist, but considering the dental tools a steampunky dentist might use, I suppose we’re glad this is all in the conceptual stages.
42919-189. You’d be forgiven for thinking what’s in the picture doesn’t look remotely comfortable. That’s because it’s a framework minus its key ingredient: a fitness ball. Once you insert the fitness ball, we figure some miracle of comfort and posture occurs that’s not at all unlike that summer in the 1970s or ‘80s you spent bopping around on a Hippity-Hop being awesome until you realized you couldn’t catch up to your friends at the ice cream truck in time because you were on that Hippity-Hop. If only you could have put wheels on it.
42382-35. It’s time to play one of our favorite games here at UW Surplus: Name That Color. Sure, it looks almost like a mild-mannered mango in this photo, but in the flesh, er, in the laminate, it’s a member of a unique spectrum into which we’d include old pumpkin, Grandma’s yams, and ochre. But in the 1970s most folks would have just called it dyno-mite. Measures 4’-diameter x 29”-high.
42799-5. That’s maybe not the best name I’ve ever given a piece of furniture. It’s more of a rich toffee chair with a butterscotch wood-grain laminate desk surface … a deep caramel featuring faux oak from the chocolate mocha forest. Also: it’s brown.
Single: 42597-13, triple: 42571-3, quad: 42571-2. No matter where you might need people to wait, these chairs are up to the task. Although if you need people to wait outdoors please note these chairs will get a bit soggy, and soggy waiters are sometimes cranky waiters.

Among the first arrivals from the Lander Hall demolition project are these incredibly nice wood framed bulletin/ tackboards that each feature a carved, Husky-purple-ized “UW” in the top center. The photo shows front and back—boards may be installed using the bevel-boards on their backs or via convention drill/ hook means. Your semi-humble UW Surplus item writer has two of these boards at his desk and can attest they’re extra spiffy.
