My client and I were recently discussing his home office that’s soon to be, and specifically, the necessity for a new filing cabinet.
We immediately agreed that the one he had had to go; metal, clanky, black, with sharp edges and an propensity to tip over when too many drawers are open at once, you know the kind. Not to mention this thing was colossal-six drawers and at least as tall as me.
And then he pronounced the description that I had been unknowingly in desperate need of up until that point: “that filing cabinet makes me feel like I’m in jail.”
Standard filing cabinets are totally the jail-version of office furniture!
Incarceration. Clanky bars and depressing design and it’s no wonder people would rather be arrested than attend to their damn files!
In an effort to introduce some more aesthetically pleasing, less call-the-warden cabinets into the general catalogue, I offer the following, 10 filing cabinets that won’t make you feel like you’re in jail.
Okay, so now regale me with your jail stories.
