Recently I was telling a good friend about my mission to find a piece of furniture to use for filing, for our newly updated/renovated office. We want something that will last long, look great and not break the bank.
We had seen a "filing system" at Ikea that looked ok, but wasn't exactly what we wanted and was still going to cost a pretty penny. We debated on it for weeks, but came to the conclusion that if we were willing to spend a few hundred dollars at Ikea on a piece that wasn't exactly what we wanted, we might as well look for something else.
A friend suggested "Crate and Barrel" to me, and since we dont have one in town I hadn't really thought of it before. We had checked a variety of other stores, including Urban Barn, etc but none of them carried office filing system units.
After searching their website and seeing a piece of furniture that looked perfect, we decided to make the drvie down to the closest Crate and Barrel store to check it out.
We walked into the store and immediately LOVED everything in sight! Unfortunately most of the pieces are much more than we can afford, but the filing system was perfect. It wasn't exactly budget friendly, but its well made, solid wood, and we knew it would last a long time and get tons of use. We were sold!
Once the piece is delivered and in the room, I will post pictures of the final product :) Yea for organization!
