Artisan Design Products Prices & Ordering  -   IMPORTANT CHANGES


Beginning  July 31, 2024, Artisan Design, Inc. will redirect our focus solely to manufacturing our Elan Tabletop Lap Stand and Lokscroll Scroll Frame products.

Manufacture of Ergo floorstand, Gazelle2 Floorstand, Bookchart chart holders and Tool Tray will be suspended. 

The waning volume of floor stand orders has driven unit production time and cost beyond profitability as our domestic responsibilities have been growing


Laura and I seek "semi-retirement" continuing with Artisan Design, Inc. but at a less demanding pace.  We have been discussing how we might transition between our prime and retirement years in order to better enjoy family, gardenning, and - of course - each other.  

Elan and Lokscroll have grown in popularity over the years as floor stand demand diminished; thus our decision.  It makes sense as the value of time and verstiliy have grown for all of us

We will continue on making Elan Tabletop Lap Stands and Lokscroll frames which we manufacture in significantly larger numbers.

       If you wish to order a Gazelle2, Ergo, or their accessories, please do so before July 31, 2024.






We have reduced the time from receipt of order to shipment to 2 to 5 weeks depending on what is ordered and how much the two of us can fabricate, finish, package, and ship. Tracking numbers will be emailed to you at the time we ship.    We will only be taking orders in the United States currently.

While shipping rates go up every year, the recent rise by the US postal service - due to some of our box sizes has increased, but we have gone back to United Parcel Service and have found their prices now better for these particular sizes.   Eventually the "inevitable" will force our hand.

About Us

About Us

Artisan Design was founded in summer 1991 and incorporated in 1994 by Laura and Sheldon Padawer.  The first stand - the original Gazelle was built for Laura based on architectural engineering and ergonomic properties to eliminate back pain and eyestrain while cofortably seated in a workspace microenvironment.  We sold over four hundred Gazelles before the end of 1992.  Over sales of frames have grown annually as we added the Lokscroll Scroll Frame,the Ergo ReclinerCompatible Floorstand, and the Elan Tabletop Lapstand.  New methods and equipment have allowed us to continue what was once a 8 person shop into a two person operation.

We are currently shipping orders about 2 - 5 weeks after receipt of your order.  When you place an order on line the payment is received by PayPal immediately.  When you order directly by phone, we do not bill your card until we are ready to ship.
