40628-29 through - 38. 1960s-era dining chairs in Hollywood Regency style. We believe these chairs are by a known designer, but no maker’s mark appears, possibly because of a re-upholstery job done many years ago. Bent wood (possibly teak) with darker wood (possibly mahogany). Very much in the style of Wormley. Two arm chairs available and eight standard dining chairs.
OUT OF STOCK. We are expected to receive more late July/early August.
Now’s your chance to snag some UW campus history of a different kind, as we have bunkable wood bed sets newly available! Oh, the stories we’re glad they cannot tell. Of course, you’ll have to supply your own crafty afghan and accent pillows.
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. If you find a locking cabinet without keys, don’t despair—just tell any locksmith the alphanumeric code around the keyhole, and they can cut a new key for you for a nominal charge. UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not.

We have just a few more very nice, oak wood rolling pedestal drawer sets available, and we’ve set a new, lower price for them! So if your memories of Mercer Hall require a memento, these are some of the last items from that building.
41513-3. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground on reactions to this chair. Some find its lively fabric pattern ADD-inspiring and/ or ghastly. And some of us appreciate a playful Joan Miró reference when we see one. It’s a great deal at just five bucks!
41415-16. Here’s an unusual piece that I’ll admit I first thought was an old wooden chair painted silver. This is actually an aluminum chair by Blair that still has its original label underneath. Reproductions of this chair can go for ridiculous sums (really: you can check—Thonet, Baxton, etc.), so some discerning lucky person with good design sense is going to get a sweet deal.
41401-48. While it came to us listed as “TV Stand,” we promise you can put all sorts of things on it—computers, stereos, aquariums, gumball machines, that awkward bust of Martin Van Buren you made entirely out of old chewing gum in the 5th grade. Measures 36 x 34 x 33”H and has lockable wheels.
41481-7. Commonly called pub tables or café-height tables, this great tall round table measures 3’ in diameter x 42”-high, is in excellent shape, and would look stupendous with a couple of tall chairs like these!
Back in stock!
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.

41310-16 and -19. Both of these handsome wooden stools were designed to have rotating seat bases, but someone didn’t like the lazy Susan seating sensation and screwed one of the bases in place. The other one still spins like a top. Both measures 31”-high.
