Default Do these under sink storage cabinets exist in the US?!

So, I had my bathroom cabinets removed in my apartment and replaced with a porcelain wall sink similar to this one: in order to be ADA compliant.

I'm trying to find some type of cabinet to put underneath that can fit around the pipes.
I've found quite a few like this:
I like that design and it seems effective. My only problem is that I cannot find any site that's actually selling such a cabinet. Only random image blogs covered in tags that lead you nowhere. The one time I did find some for sale they were only on a German and UK site neither of which shipped to the US. So, is this type of cabinet not something that can be found here?
I'd like something like this rather than having to resort to cheap looking Rubbermaid drawers.

You may have already found these, but for what it's worth, I googled 'pedestal sink cabinets':

Good find, Slow.
That is the dumbest thing I have heard about ADAs
And kirschenregen, welcome to the site. The one in your photo is pretty basic and could be made by modifying and off the shelf product at the big box stores, but the site Slow found might solve the problem but the size you need might be problem, I don't see measurement on that site.

Buy a bag-n-box cabinet from a big box and a length of iron-on edge banding tape and make your own.

If you add the cabinet back in, would it still be ADA compliant. Do you need it to be?

It's free standing.

Apparently ADA doesn't say anything about furniture.

I'm assuming the OP doesn't need the ADA compliance box checked. Since they are free standing the OP can take it along when they move or offer it up for sale to neighbors.

kirschenregen: I can only assume that you live in a rental unit and that the landlord came in and changed the sink. What kind of **** is this??? If you aren't in need of an ADA compliant bathroom, you must have had a choice to say no until you move out.
If you need ADA compliance, then the cabinet is a bad idea.
