Good Questions: Good Office File Cabinet for Her Clutter?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

My husband and I share an office space. I’m considerably less organized than he is and tend to leave stacks of papers and books all over the desk.

He is desperately searching for a file cabinet to help remove my clutter from our workspace. We’re looking for something that’s not wood (because all of our other office furniture is wood), but not that ugly corporate metal either. Also, we have limited space so a lateral cabinet is a better choice (or something 20″ deep or thinner) The attached picture is the closest thing we’ve seen, but it’s too deep. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Kristyn
