Art On a Pedestal

Home owners and art galleries look for pedestals to highlight the
artwork they want to show best. The pedestals are manufactured in
square, rectangular, even triangular shapes. They may be made in
different widths, heights, depths to accommodate each customer's
needs. The base materials to produce the pedestals may be a standard
laminate or solid wood veneer with a wide choice of stains. Your
standard pedestal will have five straight sides and sit on levelers.
As simple as it looks a pedestal is judged by the quality of its
assembly, how well the wood panels meet,the sharpness of the angles
and its structural strength. More custom pedestals will be circular or
oval for trade show exhibits and art collectors alike. Recessed top
pedestals, pedestals complemented with lockable storage areas or
drawers are other options. Antique looking art pedestals with two
tones staining and ornamental moldings fit well in homes. Pedestals
with a top circular rotating base are popular with art galleries as
attention seekers. To further highlight the beauty of the artwork an
LED light source may be recessed inside the top portion of the
pedestal. A bronze or acrylic sculpture looks spectacular when raised
on a well made pedestal with the right amount of accent lighting.
