The built-in computer support generally includes wire management with grommet holes for wire access and neat, clutter-free technology setup.

Connecting Bridge: A connecting bridge joins two office furniture elements together for a spacious U-shaped configuration. The bridge is generally not a freestanding element, but instead requires two connections to secure in place. U-shaped workstation sets generally include an executive desk and other desk or credenza which are joined with the included connecting bridge, while other office collections offer the connecting bridge as an optional purchasable item to form custom U-shaped configurations, if desired.

CPU Storage: CPU storage is built into select computer desks and office collections, with a customized CPU storage cabinet, CPU storage arm, CPU shelf, or CPU platform. The storage cabinets are enclosed with grommet holes to allow power cord and other wires to access the CPU easily. CPU shelf and platform storage can be attached to the underside of the desk or separate elements positioned where desired.

Desk Overhang: Desk overhang refers to the desktop extending beyond the frame, usually on the backside of the desk over the modesty panel. The overhang is usually only a few inches, creating a counter-like appearance for welcoming and conferring with clients and staff.

Desk Pedestal: A desk pedestal is a stacked, vertical storage and/or filing unit generally attached to the underside of the desktop with a height that extends to the floor, or shorter height for a suspended configuration. The typical desk pedestal is two or three drawers. A two-drawer pedestal is often two file drawers, with the option for letter-sized or legal-sized filing on most styles. A three-drawer pedestal is often two storage drawers and one bottom file drawer for flexible desk support.

Desk Return: A desk return is an added work surface used to create an L-shaped layout when joined with an executive desk or credenza. The return may be designed for left-hand or right-hand configurations only, with the two options sold separately, or the return may accommodate left or right hand assembly for flexibility.

Drop Down Drawer: Traditional-style office desks often feature a center drawer with drop-down drawer front that provides access to a stored keyboard or other elements.

Full-Height Modesty Panel: A full-height modesty panel extends under the desktop to the floor, usually flush with the desk frame or recessed depending on the style. Full-height modesty panels conceal the under-desk area for privacy and generally come on traditional office desks, executive desks, reception desks, and credenzas.

Grommets in Back: Grommets in the back of a desk or other furniture element are strategically placed to accommodate technology setup and use. The grommets allow wire pass-through for power cords, Ethernet cable, and other connections to setup a full PC or other audiovisual system in neat, professional style.

High-Sided Drawers: High-sided drawers have side and back panels that extend higher and/or meet the front panel for greater drawer depth to support increased storage capacity. File drawers that except hanging files are usually high-sided, while some box or storage drawers may have high sides to accommodate more items.

Hutch: An office furniture hutch is an optional addition to many desks and workstations, as well as some smaller storage units such as a lateral file. The hutch is attached to the top work surface of the base furniture element, usually a desk, and provides space-saving storage and organizing support with its vertical assembly; increasing storage upward instead of laterally, so the configuration can suit smaller office spaces.

Keyboard Shelf: A keyboard shelf is attached under the desktop of most desks and computer workstations, set on drawer-like slides for pullout accessibility.

Kneehole Credenza: A kneehole credenza provides storage and organizing support in the form of drawer pedestals or cabinets, with a central open space under the credenza offering desk-like use. The back is usually enclosed for privacy with a full-height modesty panel and the kneehole credenza can often combine with the desk or other elements in the office collection for L-shaped and U-shaped workstation layouts.

Lateral File Hutch: A lateral file hutch is designed to fit the lateral file unit. The storage hutch combines to the top of the two-drawer lateral file for vertical space-saving additional storage or open-shelf organizing support.

Lateral File: Lateral file units have wider file drawers and are usually arranged in two-drawer structures. The two drawers accept letter-sized and legal-sized files in most lateral file units, and provide a larger filing capacity than a two-drawer file pedestal.

Letter Organizers: Letter organizers can be desktop letter organizers for collecting mail and paperwork, or large letter organizers for use in a mailroom or main office. The letter organizer is usually divided into equal sized slots or cubbyholes for use as individual mail "boxes" or for other sorting and organizing.

Locking Drawers and Doors: Office furniture with locking drawers and cabinets support safe storage and filing of business or personal items. Many pedestals offer a lock, shared between two or three drawers in the vertical assembly. Three-drawer pedestals also often feature a lock for the bottom two drawers with an unlocking top drawer. Cabinets in credenza, hutch, and other storage units often provide locks for security.

Low Wall Cabinet: A low wall cabinet can be a credenza or other storage unit and is usually longer or wider than the two-door cabinet or lateral file unit. A low wall cabinet is designed to position along a wall or the backside of a desk or other office placement, providing enclosed storage for neat presentation and the top can serve as a display shelf or used for other platform surface need. The typical layout of a low wall cabinet is a two-cabinet structure with two connected two-door cabinets, separated by a divider wall or panel between the two sides. Each cabinet will have a fixed base shelf and adjustable middle shelf for convenience.

Mitered Drawers: Mitered drawers feature connections between pieces cut at 45-degree angles to form the corners of the drawer-front and/or the storage part of the drawer. These miter joints are also used to make picture frames, joining the four pieces to form the frame with miter joints are the four corners.

Mobile Pedestal: Mobile pedestals are designed in two and three-drawer arrangements, much like the under-desk pedestals. The three-drawer mobile pedestal will have a bottom file drawer, usually accepting letter-sized or legal-sized filing for convenience, and two upper storage or utility drawers often referred to as box drawers. The two-drawer pedestal will have two file drawers. These mobile pedestals are set on four or five casters for strong support and easy push-mobility.

Modesty Panel: A modesty panel extends from the underside of the desktop to the floor, or a point in between the desktop and the floor depending on the design. The modesty panel serves as a privacy shield, concealing the underside of the desk and creating a professional look from the opposite site. A partial modesty panel conceals some of the underside of the desk and extends to a point above the floor, usually halfway. The partial modesty panel is common on return tables, smaller desks, and credenzas, offering airflow and structural support along with some privacy.

Mountable Overhead: An overhead is usually a hutch or similar storage unit that combines with a base furniture element such as a desk or lateral file unit. Select overheads offer the option to mount the storage unit to the wall above a desk, rather than attach it directly to the desktop.

Mouse hole in Shelf: Cabinets and open-shelf storage compartments with integrated mouse holes in the shelves are designed to accommodate wire connections between networked or other technology devices for a neat and organized setup.

Pencil Drawer: A pencil drawer is designed for storing writing utensils and is usually designed with felt lining to reduce noise from rolling and moving pens and pencils. The drawer is shallow, compared to utility or file drawers, allowing easy access to all stored contents.

Peninsula Table: A peninsula table joins the surface of a desk or credenza and usually has a single pedestal-post leg on the far end. The table is often rounded on the far end, with a flat edge for joining the desk. The peninsula table for most office collections is not freestanding, and can support two workstations as a shared central table depending on the office furniture design.

Personal Storage: Personal storage can be open-shelf cubbyholes built into a larger furniture unit but it typically refers to a one or two-door wardrobe-style cabinet. Most personal storage units have a hanger bar for clothing hangers to support jacket, lab coat, uniform, or other clothing items, as well as shelves within the cabinet for shoes or other items.

Portable Device Charging Station: An integrated portable device charging station offers a safe place for charging cell phones, blackberries, ipads, table PCs, and other portable electronic devices in a convenient space.

Printer Shelf: A printer shelf enhances many office collections and computer desks. Usually set above the work surface, a printer shelf supports sufficient weight for use with a standard printer, and keeps the computer element within reach for easy access in support of productivity. Lower printer shelves are also common on select desk models, usually built into the frame and positioned under the desktop area for out of the way storage but easy accessibility.

Recessed Modesty Panel: A recessed modesty panel is set back within the frame of the desk, creating a desktop overhang for a counter-style desk appearance. The desktop generally extends only a few inches beyond the frame and modesty panel and the recessed modesty panel adds decorative effect to the overall style as well.

Return Screen: A return screen is a privacy element added to the return portion of an L-shaped desk arrangement. The screen is usually a panel finished to match the overall desk design and extends above the return work surface for privacy.

Stackable Cabinets: Stackable cabinets are custom-designed to combine for vertical arrangements. The convenient vertical stacking ability is great for smaller offices where space-saving furniture configurations are essential.

Storage Credenza: A credenza is traditionally a storage element, usually with a desk-like structure. The credenza may have built-in cabinets and/or drawers for storing and organizing office supplies and other items. The top of the storage credenza is usually finished similarly to the matching desk and the top can also be used for display or storage.

Storage Drawer: Storage drawers are also referred to as utility drawers and box drawers for their simple four-sided structure and versatile design for use in any office to organize personal items, desk and office supplies or other small objects.

Surge Protector: A surge protector is usually built into a power strip and is designed to reduce damage to electronic devices from power outages and voltage spikes. The surge protector limits the voltage that the connected devices or computers receive by grounding the excess voltage and maintaining a predominantly safe and steady voltage supply.

Suspended Pedestal: A suspended pedestal is attached under the desktop and extends downward but not reaching the floor. The suspended layout keeps the bottom drawer off the floor, and the raised position of the overall pedestal enables easier access with less bending to reach.

Table Lectern: A table lectern is designed for use on top of a table or large desk, with a shape resembling traditional lecterns, featuring an angled top surface with book-stop ledge to hold books and papers in place. The tabletop lectern design usually creates an open-front cubbyhole when placed on the tabletop, and the design is portable for convenience.

Tackboard Back Panel: Desk hutches with tackboard back panels utilize the enclosed hutch back panel, extending from the desktop to the underside of the hutch storage compartments or shelves. The custom-fit tackboard attaches to the back panel of the hutch, offering support for tacks, pushpins, and staples, usually with a fabric covering for professional look.

Task Lights: Task lighting attaches above a work surface, usually to the underside of a hutch, overhead, or shelf, and adds light to the desktop area for more comfortable work environment.

Three-Quarter Extension Drawers: Drawers set on three-quarter extension slides open three-quarters of the way, with the remaining back quarter of the drawer staying within the structural frame of the desk or storage unit.

USB Hub: A USB hub offers USB ports for connecting to a computer, laptop, or other device. The USB hub usually contains four USB ports and connects to a CPU, laptop, or docking stations.

Utility Drawer: Utility drawers can also be called storage or box drawers and are usually included in a three-drawer pedestal. The utility drawers offer a basic four-sided drawer design for storage and organizing small office supplies and desk or personal items, and the top utility drawer in select desk models comes with a built-in or included organizing tray for writing utensils.

Utility Drawer

Vertical Paper Manager: A vertical paper manager offers support for organizing a desk or workspace, with custom-sized slots to hold standard 8-1/2" by 11" papers in a vertical or standing position. The vertical paper manager is usually taller and narrower than the horizontal paper slots and horizontal paper organizers. The paper organizer may be comprised of a base with standing/vertical paper dividers that support the standing papers and folders, or enclosed with divided paper slots built into a box-like frame.

Wall Mounted Hutch: A wall-mounted hutch offers the vertical space-saving setup of a traditional desktop or lateral file hutch, but mounts to the wall rather than to the top of the desk or storage unit. The mounting design provides customized desktop clearance that can accommodate larger computer monitors or other desktop arrangements, and the wall mounted hutch design is typically enclosed for neat organizing in any office setting.

Writing Surface: On select desk models, a rectangular insert is positioned in a centered location along the user-side of the desktop, finished with melamine or laminate for lasting durability, and offering a safe writing and work surface area without risk of damage to the wood or wood veneer surfaces.

Writing Tablet: Writing tablets refer to two distinct styles. One type of writing tablet is positioned on the left or right side of a chair and can be fixed or hinged for flip-up motion to ease sitting and standing. The other type of writing tablet resembles a desk drawer, but with panel-like design. The desk writing tablet stows inside the desk and pulls out for additional writing surface.

Construction Materials

Beveled Glass: Beveled glass refers to glass panels or panes where the edges have been cut at an angle, creating a three-dimensional appearance to the glass design. The beveled edges catch light and create prism-style rainbows as well as enhance the overall decorative appearance of the glass panes.

Catalyzed Lacquer Finish: Catalyzed lacquer finish is a clear coating applied to the surfaces of select office furniture styles. The lacquer is composed of nearly half solids, making it a very thick or viscous coating, and the catalyzed finish hardens for lasting protection while maintaining some elastic flexibility so it won't crack under normal use.

Crackled Glass: Crackle glass is created by placing hot glass in very cold water to create cracks throughout the panel. The panels are then reheated to smooth the surfaces and seal in the cracks. The result is a semi-translucent windowpane or glass panel that allows light to shine through and distorts images for privacy.

European Hinges: European hinges are concealed within the cabinet when the doors are closed. They consist of multiple parts that attach to the inside of the cabinet and the backside of the door, then fit together and secure in place with screws.

Finished Back: Office collections designed for placement anywhere in a room or office will have finished back panels so the design is consistent on all sides.

Frosted Plexi Glass: Plexi glass is a thermoplastic glass-like panel offering the glass appearance at a lightweight affordable cost with enhanced durability. Some plexi glass panels are frosted for a frosted window look, enhancing the style of an office collection with the added benefit of shatter-resistant construction. The frosted plexi glass allows light to shine through while offering some privacy in office and business settings.

Hand-Rubbed Finish: Wood stain is applied by hand, adding attentive focus to the color and finish application for rich penetrating wood tones and even finish across the furniture or veneers.

Lacquer Topcoat: Lacquer topcoat is applied to many wood and veneer furniture products to protect the finish and surface from use. The lacquer is a thick clear liquid finish applied over the wood stain to protect it. The lacquer dries or is cured to form a hard finish, usually with a glossy appearance.

Leaded Glass: Leaded glass has been custom made to contain between 18-percent and 40-percent lead (II) oxide, replacing calcium content with lead for a crystal-clear window panel that has increased refractive index for a light dispersion that shines like precious stones.

Melamine Desktop: A melamine desktop can refer to the overall work surface finished with melamine for a damage-resistant surface that endures frequent use. Melamine desktops can also be an enhanced style with overall wood furniture design and a desktop perimeter frame also made of wood or wood veneers. The middle or usable portion of the desktop contains a melamine insert or finish for durable, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, damage-resistant writing and work surface, extending the life of the desk.

Mounting Hardware: Furniture that can be mounted to a wall or other room element almost always comes with the necessary mounting hardware. The mounting hardware will include bolts, brackets, wall anchors, and/or whatever is essential to support the weight of the storage unit or other office furniture combined with stored contents at full weight capacity.

Particleboard Core: Particleboard is composed of wood pieces, wood chips, and saw dust, mixed with an adhesive bonding substance or resin and pressed to form dense, durable panels. The particleboard is durable and often used for the thickness or core of desktops and other office furniture components for an affordable design.

Rubber Strip: A rubber strip built into a desk or included with a desk design is a conduit for organizing wires to keep the technology cables organized and safe.

Solid Oak and Oak Veneers: Solid oak and oak veneers describe office collections built using real hardwood oak and finished with oak veneers for rich wood stain colors that are more durable than traditional finished wood surfaces. The veneers are made from oak, sliced to form thin sheets that are finished with the wood stains and applied to the office furniture with adhesive or laminate.

Textured Glass: Textured glass is created with a shaped pattern, usually waves or other texturing pattern, on both sides of the glass panels. Textured glass is a decorative alternative to frosted glass, offering privacy with light show-through for attractive furniture design with smart business-friendly style.

Wood Moulding: Molding is made using strips of wood, usually carved or decorated in a traditional fashion with curves, grooves, or other detailing, and applied along the bottom edge and/or top edge of office desks, bookcases, and other storage furniture.

Wood Veneers: Wood veneers are made using thin sheets of real wood, maintaining the wood grain patterns, and finished with traditional wood stains for rich color. The veneers are attached or applied to furniture with laminate or other bonding material for a secure hold and the overall finish is protective with topcoat, lacquer, or other clear finish for lasting appearance.

Features

Decorative Wood Detailing: Wood detailing is often decorative, with fluting or grooves along tabletop edges, top and base moulding on bookcases and other storage units, and tabletop or desktop inlay patterns.

Freestanding: Freestanding describes furniture elements that can operate alone, without additional items needed to setup the structure. A freestanding desk can be assembled, setup, and used safely by itself.

Legal-sized: Legal-sized refers to longer papers and folders, measuring 8-1/2"-wide like letter-size paper but 14"-long.

Letter-sized: Letter-sized refers to papers and file folders in the standard 8-1/2" by 11" size. Copy and printer papers are usually letter-sized.

Monitor Clearance: Monitor clearance refers to the amount of space allowed between the top of a desk and the bottom of an overhead or hutch. Most desks with hutch attached can accommodate standard computer monitors; usually between 14" and 19", measuring diagonally across the monitor.

No Side Moulding: Bookcases and office furniture without side moulding are designed to accommodate side-by-side arrangements, if desired.

Pilasters: Traditional pilasters were columns used to add structural support to a building or other structure while presenting a decorative appearance. With office collections, pilasters are usually decorated columns or other vertical decorations in the base or other structural components of office furniture.

Removable-Core Locks: Removable lock cores allow the main portion of the lock to be removed without removing the entire lock structure. This is ideal for changing the locks on secure storage and filing units.

Reversible Bridge: A reversible bridge allows the desk to be assembled for better support of left-hand or right-hand users, offering the flexibility for personalized comfort or preference. Desk returns are also often reversible.

Reversible Desk Return: A desk return extends the desk surface to form an L-shape, in many cases, and when the return is reversible it can be assembled to the desk on the left-hand or right-hand side to suit the intended user for greater comfort.

Wire Management: Wire management support, at the very least, consists of grommet holes in the desktop and/or back or connecting panels throughout a desk, allowing wire pass-through and wire access for electronic equipment.
