    Clean, compact, perfect

    I was in search of a the smallest file cabinet I could find, and came across this. I decided to roll the dice, and I’m quite impressed with this. It’s about the size of a computer tower from the late 90s, and fits my need perfectly. It locks, and has enough room for about 400-600 pages total (including stapling, paper clips, folders, etc.)It’s design is clean and simple, and I would definitely purchase again.

    Well made, sturdy file cabinet perfect for under desk use

    This is exactly what I needed and expected, a very sturdy little file cabinet that fits under the desk without taking up too much room. As others have noted, it *is* small — maybe 6 – 7 hanging files max, and that’s assuming they aren’t stuffed to the gills. So it is not for storage, really, but rather if you are looking for something that will keep your active working files close at hand, and provide a top drawer for office supplies.Also, the seller was great — I was missing a part, and it was shipped to me immediately by 2-day shipping.

    Great Modern Design!

    The File Cabinet is really sleek and does not take up a lot of space, but surprisingly fits everything I need stored. Both practical and attractive. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Excellent Customer Support

    Minimal assembly required; product is slim and sturdy, perfect fit for a smaller room being used as a home office. I had difficulty locating the second handle after contacting customer service I was directed to look behind the drawer and it was there.

    Nifty little file cabinet!

    Perfect file cabinet for tight spaces. Well built with nice drawers and adjustable feet.

    Functional but wish was bigger

    Make sure you look at the dimensions on this item, because it is way smaller than I expected. I love it but wish it was a little bigger. It was easy to put together except for when I had to place the racks in so the folders could go in. I ended up having to unscrew the draw so it would make it easier to add the rack piece or else you will end of scratching the inside of the drawer like I did.

    Never thought a file cabinet could be cute!

    Love love love how compact this is!! Literally so easy to store and not as obnoxious as a standard file cabinet perfect for what I need it for

  8. Harrison J Hyde

    The perfect little filing cabinet

    After browsing online for hours, I finally stumbled across this little gem. It’s the perfect filing cabinet. It doesn’t take up much space while still holding all of your office essentials. Plus it looks sharp and is very good quality.

    Perfect size, clean looking

    This is the perfect size file cabinet for under my desk! Top compartment comes with a tray for smaller items and bottom comes with adjustable hangers for different size folders. At first I thought it didn’t come with handles, but they are inside under the drawer. Overall great quality and quick delivery 👍🏼

    Storage in a small footprint

    This little cabinet is perfect for my needs. I tried a more normal-sized cabinet, but it took up too much space under my sit-to-stand desk — one of the things I like about the desk is the large amount of legroom it offers; I don’t want to fill up a lot of that room with a cabinet.The cabinet itself is well designed and built. The drawer sliders are strong and smooth. Only a little assembly is required before it’s ready to go.One interesting note: An oblong steel tray with 3” sides comes in the package, and it seems nice enough that it *must* have some purpose, I just couldn’t figure out that purpose no matter how I tried to attach it to the cabinet. I was pulling my hair out about it until the manufacturer assured me the tray is only meant to protect the face of the cabinet during shipping, and may safety be discarded.Another highlight of this cabinet is the great manufacturer support: I couldn’t figure out how to install the hanging folder rails that came with the cabinet. I called the manufacturer, and it turned out that the rails I’d received were wrong for my cabinet. Two days later I received the correct rails, and everything is working perfectly now.If you’re looking for a cabinet that’s functional while being nice and compact, look no further… you’ve found it.

    Good small size and lockable, but dented

    This is a sturdy small lockable file cabinet. The lock was on the top drawer rather than the bottom – different than the picture online. Easy to put the handles on, but dented upon arrival.
