Bigsoâ¿¢ Classic Stockholm Magazine File
I already have several pieces from the Stockholm office line. I absolutely love the paper drawers, which I use for my scrapbooking stickers and embellishments. I also use a set in my sons' art area: one drawer holds white drawing paper and the other holds colored construction paper. We've had them for about a year now and they are holding up very well. Very easy for the kids to use, too.
We'd been storing their coloring & activity books, etc, in black magazine files purchased for much less at a big retailer. At that time, I wasn't willing to fork over $10 apiece for these nicer ones. But you get what you pay for! Those files were continually falling over, creating a domino effect that was highly irritating and not very user-friendly for my preschoolers.
So we finally bought four of these and are very pleased, as we knew we would be. They are very sturdy and hold more than did their predecessors.
The only problem for us is that the label holder is on the wrong side for our purposes. In order for the kids to see and access their coloring books, we face the lower side out. The label holder is on the tall side, which would make sense for an adult trying to create a neat and orderly appearance. I just added my own chalkboard labels, which are working fine.

I picked up several of these for my office. They are very sturdy, and I love the color choices - I bought a whilte and graphite steel gray one, and use them to hold my paperwork until I can get to it/file it.

I am a professional organizer and have recommended these magazine holders for several years to my organizing clients and use them myself at home. I think they look good and are a relatively good value for the price. I just ordered 5 new ones for my new office and was dismayed to find that the label holder has changed.
The old version was substantial enough to both hold the label and hide its edges. The new label holder is very skimpy and while I like the attempt at clean lines, it doesn't do the job. The label ends up looking sadly stuck on the front. Money-saving for Bigso but sad for us . . .

Best Purchase Ever
These Magazines are great. I used thes in our office supply closet to organize our magazines and label sheets. It made a world of difference and saved space.
