The plumbing first off for this sink to look right needs to come from the wall or be moved into the wall.

I believe a simpler solution would be to choose a free standing pedestal sink.

I've never like plumbing a pedestal to the floor. Too many variables if you don't have the sink in the rough, plus the S-trap. If the pipes are back far enough, I'd build a nice box around them to match the wall hung vanity. Moving the pipes to the wall would be best though.

I can agree totally. You will for sure wind up s trapping a pedestal if you come up from the floor or least very likely. It's even a close call with this sink unless you go inside the wall
