The 20/20 Cure has us inspired. We all want beautiful and organized homes, so what better way to achieve both than to find functional pieces that also add to great design? Flat files offer us a way to store all of our important documents and artwork safely and they look great when combined with industrial or modern décor. Check out these examples of how to use vintage flat files in your home beyond the jump.

Living green often means making things work in smaller spaces. Large pieces of artwork or documents are difficult to store, especially when you need all of the space under your bed for off-season clothing! Using a vintage flat filing cabinet to store those precious documents not only saves you space but also adds style to your room.
