[42919]. These useful, small but higher-than-average desks/ tables will accommodate standard wheelchairs and are great for computing, dining, writing … in fact, all your various table-y practices. Each piece measures 30”-square x 30”-high.

Adjustable Wood & Metal Industrial Chair

product thumbnail image

$150.00

43096-22. Back in the day, “adjustable” didn’t necessarily mean 100 different knobs and switches for a bespoke fit; it meant “you can raise or lower the seat by spinning it,” and such is the case with this sturdy war horse. Ah, the simplicity of the ages.

Ample-Bottomed Chair

product thumbnail image

$25.00

43035-12. If only Queen had written a song about this chair. As a backside-deficient person myself, I can vouch that this chair is also remarkably comfortable for our people, too. On casters.

Black Metal & Blond Wood Desk

product thumbnail image

Just $20.00!

43146-73. This lovely desk is sleek & modern with its angular black metal drawers, but it’s also warm & earthy thanks to its soft blond wood surface. Measures 30 x 70 x 30”H.

This is really a great buy if you know any brass bankers.

We have a wide variety of colors and styles of office chairs and stools, sitting room chairs, etc. Photo is a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly.

Executive Napping Chairs on Wheels

product thumbnail image

$10.00 each!

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.

File Cabinets

as marked

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.

Industrial Workbench/ Desk

product thumbnail image

$150.00

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.

Jetsons TV Stand!

product thumbnail image

A super-sweet deal at just $10.00!

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.

Large Metal & Laminate Desk

product thumbnail image

$15.00

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.

Lateral File Cabinets

Assorted colors and sizes, with prices ranging from $15 to $50. 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.

Lava Red Laminate Box Table Things

product thumbnail image

$10.00 each (4 available)

43052-3, -4, -5, and -6. Coffee-table-ish? Display-podium-ish? Big-red-laminate-bricks-ish? Well, yes. Each measures 29 x 44 x 20”H or 29 x 20 x 44”H. POSSIBILITIES!

Metal Retro Stool

product thumbnail image

$30.00

42970-11. Simple, strong, and efficient—this retro industrial stool knows how awesome it is but doesn’t make you feel weird about it. Spin to adjust height.

Retro-Industrial Metal & Wood Chairs

product thumbnail image

$125.00 each

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.

Retro-Industrial Wood & Metal Chairs Part 3

product thumbnail image

$65.00 each

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.

Retro-Rad Wood & Metal Stool: The Artful Codger

product thumbnail image

$50.00

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.

Rolling Ball Chair Frame

product thumbnail image

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.

Round Wood & [What Color is THAT?] Laminate Table

product thumbnail image

$20.00

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.

Simply Good Design Wooden Chair

product thumbnail image

$30.00

42983-16. Sturdy, well-designed & styled. You sit upon it. It makes you look good.

Student Desk: The Suave Wooden Brownie

product thumbnail image

$10.00

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.

This Chair Appears to be Made Out of Mom Jeans

product thumbnail image

Just $5.00!

42970-17. For a small person (so you may have to explain the era of acid-washed jeans and what on Earth we were thinking). Small tear in left side bottom.

Wood & Fabric Waiting Room Chairs

product thumbnail image

Single: $5.00, Triple: $10.00, Quad: $15.00

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.

Wood UW Bulletin/ Tackboards

product thumbnail image

$10.00 each

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.
measures 4’ x 30”H.

Wood-ish Metal Barrister’s Bookcase

product thumbnail image

$425.00

43062-48. Another freak phenomenon these days in the Surplus warehouse is metal that looks like wood—let’s call it mwoodal (no? Wootal? Certainly not). This particularly lovely example takes the form of a stackable, 5-tiered, glass-front cabinet + cornice piece. Altogether, it measures 38 x 19 x 6’H.
