Desktop Samples

  • 7" x 7" sample size - conveniently sized samples are large enough to get a feel for the material and patterns. Sample thickness matches the actual desktop thickness
  • Touch & feel - go beyond the screen and experience the look and feel of your favorite desktop options in person before ordering your UPLIFT desk
  • Packs of four - select up to four different desktop samples of any type, species, or style
  • Yours to keep, they are not returnable - keep the samples as a reference for your next UPLIFT desk purchase or share them with your friends. In order to keep prices as low as possible on these large, high-quality samples, and to ensure each customer receives brand-new, unscuffed samples, they are not returnable. The wood (and bamboo) thick samples are high quality and have substantial material and production costs
  • Live Edge Solid Woods - Pheasantwood and Saman solid wood desktops include a live edge that mimics a natural bark line, but the 7" x 7" samples do not include the live edge

True-to-Life & Thoughtfully Sized Samples

Sample squares are large enough to get an idea of how the solid wood desktop grain patterns will appear and how the desktop colors will blend with your decor. Of course, all bamboo and solid wood desktops are thankfully produced by mother nature and will therefore be one of a kind.

Desktop samples are all sized in 7" x 7" squares and the thickness of each sample matches the thickness of the actual desktop (1" to 1.75" thick). With physical samples, you can compare not just the appearance but the heft and density of different desktop types.

  • Laminate, rubberwood, and bamboo samples and desktops are 1" thick
  • Butcher block solid wood samples and desktops are 1.5" thick
  • Wide plank solid wood samples and desktops are 1.75" thick
