Brighten Your Dark Spaces with Our Mirrored Pedestals

Do you need to set up an attractive display in a small, dark corner space? We have some suggestions for using our mirrored pedestals to help bring light into the darkness.

  • We have a number of tapered pedestals with mirrored bases. They come in a wide variety of laminate colors and textures, each of which is reflected back into the room from the mirrored base. This means that if you choose white or bright colors for your pedestals (we suggest bamboo, oak, white, or Maroochy Brush W), that brightness will be reflected into the dark corners of your display space.
  • Strategically placed spotlights can also reflect off our mirrored bases, and reflective pedestal surfaces, bringing more light into dark areas. Surprisingly, one good choice for a reflective pedestal is our high gloss black acrylic finish, which reflects light with great elegance.
  • You can also choose metal finishes for greater reflectivity in dark areas of a room. We have brushed aluminum pedestals in a variety of shapes and sizes, with two options for adding light to the pedestal itself—through a bright spotlight or soft, diffused florescent light, set below a frosted acrylic top.
  • Choose our Illuminating Mirrored Manual Turntable Pedestal. This mirrored pedestal reflects light back into the room, and also has a lighted, turntable top to make your display item easy to view from all angles. We even have a motorized option so that your fragile product can be clearly seen from all sides without anyone needing to touch the display at all.

So browse our website today, or call us to discuss the particular issues that you may have with your display space. We have so many pedestal options to choose from that we can solve any dilemma you may face, to bring your products out from the dark and into the light!

Art Pedestals Show Support For The Artist

It takes a lot of work to be a successful artist and if you have a family member or close friend who’s aspiring to be just that, you’re probably familiar with some of the traits exhibited by artists. According to Aletta de Wal, successful artists have five very common traits. Two of the five common traits of artists include the fact that art is at the core of the artist’s life and it’s important to surround oneself with people who are supportive. What better way to show that you support your successful or aspiring artist with an acrylic pedestal?

The core

Some artists aren’t going to make a living producing art. Instead, they do it for a hobby, simply because they love what they’re doing. If art is truly at the core of the life of an artist, then showing appreciation for the heart of who this person really is can make them feel better than simple words ever could.

Supportive people

Many artists love to give their works to friends and loved ones. It’s one thing to say “that’s nice” and shove their painting or sculpture somewhere it might or might not be seen. But imagine if they find their piece literally placed on a pedestal where you’ve shown — not just with words, but with actions — that this work of art has meaning for you and it’s highly valued. Suddenly you’ve shifted yourself from being a passive observer to an active supporter.

To choose the perfect acrylic pedestal for a work of art you’ve been given, feel free to contact us. We’ve been in the business of displaying artwork for over 25 years and we’re happy to help you choose the perfect display for a special piece of artwork.

Celebrating Mothers with Love and Pedestal Discounts

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 12. That means you only have 4 more days to decide how you are going to celebrate the wonderful mothers in your life. Mother’s Day, specifically in the United States, has been celebrated since 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed it to be a national holiday that was to be held every year on the second Sunday in May. Of course, we Americans were not the first to celebrate our mothers, so let’s take a look at how this tradition began.

Ancient Greeks honored their mother of the gods on a special day, Romans honored their version of the mother of the gods, Christians honored the mother Mary, and the English gave servants a special holiday in order to visit their mothers. According to familytime.com, “Julia Ward Howe is credited with first suggesting a day to honor American mothers and to celebrate peace in 1872… Howe organized annual Mother’s Day meetings in Boston.” It took years to formalize the day, but “in 1913, the House of Representatives adopted a resolution calling for federal government officials to wear white carnations in honor of mothers on the second Sunday in May.”

Mother’s Day is now the day that mothers receive cards, homemade goodies, treats, clean houses, breakfasts in bed, gifts, and many other pampered luxuries. The question for those who have mothers or mother like figures is what to get for them and how to show them your love and appreciation?

Pedestal Source wants to help you celebrate and spoil your mothers by offering a special discount of 15% off any pedestal that is not already on sale. Better hurry, this deal will only last until Mother’s Day. Simply call our store at 1-800-333-9953 and mention the Mother’s Day discount and you will receive 15% off any pedestal you choose as long as it is not already on sale.

Give your mother something she can place her other Mother’s Day gifts on, give her something she can keep for years to come, give her something that will help decorate her house, give her something that says “I love you and I want you to have something special.”

Mother’s Day is 4 days away, what are you getting for your mother?

Pedestals for Your May Flowers

Spring is definitely here, and most of those April showers have given way to May flowers. Whether in your home or office, the chance to display the best blooms from your garden or local florist is irresistible. But your desk and tables are full, so there’s no appropriate space for that showy bunch of flowers. What can you do?

We suggest that our pedestals are the perfect way to showcase your May flowers. For the home, we have beautiful wooden pedestals with shelves, which give you a top tier for displaying your vase of garden flowers and additional shelves for stylish art objects or your child’s latest sculpture from school. We also have pillar pedestals which add dramatic height to any flower display. Alternatively, if you wish your vase of flowers to stand on something less obvious, we have some lovely clear acrylic pedestals, in modern rectangles or traditional columns.

For the office, we have a number of outstanding options that take up little space but add interest to your reception area or conference room. Our great variety of stylish wood veneer pedestals will match any traditional décor. For the more modern office, you can choose from brushed aluminum, hand ground steel or gloss black pedestals in a variety of interesting shapes and sizes. If you have room for more than one pedestal, consider a small grouping in different sizes, so that your elegant flower display draws the eye upward toward your business logo or other important image on the wall.

Regardless of the layout of your space, there is always room for a pedestal, so contact us today to discuss how we can help you display your May flowers to best advantage.

Enhance Your Work by Using The Right Art Stands

Artwork adds a personal touch to any room. Displaying art the wrong way can be distracting. The right tools can appreciate your art work, confidence and ornamentation. Whether you display art in your home or in a gallery, choosing the perfect art stand is essential. Art stands should entice people, and display your design to the best of its’ ability.

“Any room looks better with some art.” -Barb St. Amant, ABR, with Harry Norman, REALTORS®, in Atlanta, The Right Way to Display Artwork.

Choosing the proper material is important. That is why our art stands come in complementary materials and colors. Black, white, wood and glass are all classy backdrops that allow your art to shine. Your artwork can literally shine with our lighted pedestals.

Sizes and shapes are varied to offer an artistic appeal. Choose art stands based on the size of the works, height of furniture, and ceiling height. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Mix and match colors and materials.

Our Down Light Contemporary Showcase Pedestal Alder Veneer is the perfect substructure for priceless art pieces. Customize the art stand to your liking. Choose between overhead or ambient under lighting. Contemporary or traditional styling options are available. A variety of finishes includes laminates and wood veneers.

There is no visible door hardware or wires. It includes a hidden door lock. Best of all it is made in the USA.

If you plan to sell your art, we have affordable trade show displays. They come in complementary colors. The pedestals are durable. Our displays are easy to put up and take down. Prices start as low as $100.

Give Your Space a Sleek, Elegant look with Cherry Pedestals

Do you have a display piece that needs the perfect pedestal to help make it stand out? Whether it’s for your home, your art studio, or even your office, a cherry pedestal has the simple elegance to let your piece be in the spotlight. The lighter cherry wood makes the pedestal unobtrusive so it doesn’t detract from the piece, instead making the show-piece the focal point. The cherry pedestal also offers something stylish to look at and is more than just an ordinary stand.

When buying pedestals for your office, maybe for your plants, or for an art studio to showcase artwork, you want something functional that lifts the desired piece to eye level, but doesn’t take up a lot of attention. A big table can take up a lot of room and make your office or studio feel smaller by its size. The simple design of the pedestal gives the plant or art piece a sturdy base to sit on, takes up little room depending on the size, and is pleasing to look at without detracting the focus from the main piece. It also gives you more options to move the plant or art piece around the room rather than keeping it against a wall.

The cherry wood pedestals are the perfect choice when looking for something graceful for your artwork, showpiece, or whatever it is you want to display. They come lighted or not depending on what your purposes are. The lighted options create a dramatic effect when used to display glass or relief sculpture art pieces, while the directional light option is perfect for any acrylic, crystal, or glass sculptures.

No matter your need, if you want something effortless and tasteful to display your prized pieces on, you can’t go wrong with a cherry pedestal. The real cherry wood veneer is easy to clean, darkens naturally over time, and very durable. Each handcrafted piece can hold up to 200lbs and no matter the size you need, contact Pedestal Source and they can accommodate you.

Transforming your Retail Space with Display Pedestals

So it’s past time for some spring cleaning on your showroom floor, and you want something fresh and elegant to highlight your merchandise. We have a wide variety of options to choose from; here are some ideas for how you might use our retail display pedestals.

Do you have small, expensive items to highlight, such as jewelry, watches or valuable collectibles? Consider our Illuminated Pedestal with locking cover and siren. Available in a variety of custom colors, this pedestal will emphasize your smallest, most costly items safely in a busy retail environment. With optional under lighting, it will be easy for your customers to view these treasures from all sides. We also have down light show cases available for those precious items best lighted from above.

Or perhaps you have heavy merchandise, where the concern is not theft or lighting, but rather a customer’s ability to see or touch the item without bending over. We have strong retail pedestals that can hold literally hundreds of pounds, and wide enough that they will not fall over when accidentally bumped on a crowded showroom floor.

What about something in between? If you want a long, low, dark pedestal, we can craft an ebony laminate beauty that will provide a stylish backdrop for your merchandise. If you want something tall and elegant, we have a variety of wood, stone and special color laminate finishes that will perfectly complement that new specialty item.

Maybe you want to try something new, and set up a couple of mobile points of sale on your showroom floor, so you can follow the customers. We create more than standard pedestals; we can easily construct custom made, rolling cabinets that blend in well with your existing pedestals’ décor. This allows your sales staff to be more available to customers, responding to questions and making sales to keep your basic POS stations’ lines shorter in busy times.

Peruse our site or contact us today and let’s discuss how we can meet your showroom floor display needs.

Taking Charge and Leading the Way with ‘Lean Manufacturing’

Pedestal Source has recently begun a new manufacturing journey called ‘Lean Manufacturing.’ Lean manufacturing is all about empowering workers to continuously learn and improve by eliminating waste, and adding real value to the things that are done on a day-to-day basis.

Lean is the new “style of good management” and according to Paul Akers, the author of 2 Second Lean Book, becoming ‘lean’ means you “soothe the frictions between labor and management by enlisting the brainpower of all employees from the top to the bottom.”


Pedestal Source has decided to take this idea of ‘Lean Manufacturing’ and implement it into the daily tasks and processes of the company. In Paul’s book he says to start your ‘lean’ journey in the bathroom and so that is where Pedestal Source CEO and founder, Mr. Greg Glebe, decided to start.

This video portrays the process of taking an ordinary to dirty bathroom and turning it into a ‘lean,’ highly clean and effective bathroom.

Cleaning up, and eliminating waste is a great place to start; however, in order for a company to truly succeed in ‘lean manufacturing’ every employee has to be on-board. Because everyone in the company needs to participate, Pedestal Source has continued the ‘lean’ journey by holding daily meetings about how to improve.

During these daily meetings, employees learn what is ‘lean manufacturing,’ why becoming ‘lean’ is effective and important, and how employees can help the company become more ‘lean.’

Eliminating wasted space, time, energy, and effort in the bathroom is a great way to start, but Pedestal Source wants to take the next steps of the journey and make their company a ‘lean manufacturing’ machine that is un-wasteful and highly effective in every aspect. Pedestal displays will not build themselves they need to be built by those who know the process. Those processes will be looked over and assessed for waste then they will be cleansed of waste in order to help create a more ‘lean’ company.

One example that Paul gives, during one of his introduction to ‘lean’ videos, is that becoming ‘lean’ is like becoming a pit crew. Instead of taking eight to ten minutes to change a tire, as many people do, the pit crew will change it in seconds. The pit crew has discovered where the waste is and they have gotten rid of it in order to be ‘lean’ or fast and efficient. You, and any company or business can do the same thing by finding the waste, getting rid of it, and becoming ‘lean.’
