Bigso Marten Grey Desktop File is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading Measurements These are advertised as 13 inches long. Well, the lid is 13 inches long, the box itself is just 12 1/4 inches long, with the inside of the box being even shorter. Which means the records I bought these for won't fit in them.

Metal frame?

Does this contain a metal frame for hanging folders from?
Asked by: ErinR
These do not have a visible metal frame; however they are wide enough and I am able to use hanging folders in them. The metal cleats on the end of the folders hang over the top edge and fit under the box lid.

Will tabs that stick up on the hanging files keep box lid from closing?

Asked by: LadyGracie
No, this box will close with hanging files inside. The lid is tall enough to accommodate the tabs.

Difference between Bigso Marten and Bigso John

I previously purchased a Bigso John Canvas Paper Laminate Desktop File Box. How is the Bigso Marten different from the Bigso John? Thanks
Asked by: dvincanada
The main difference between our Marten Desktop File and our Stockholm Desktop File is the laminate used to cover them: the Marten Collection is covered with embossed canvas paper and features leather handle while our Stockholm Collection is covered with Wabalin paper and features a metal handle.

Before & After Spaces

After undertaking a major remodeling project of her 1930's Spanish Mediterranean home in Santa Monica, Marla Sobel loved the light, bright, casual and graceful environment of her home. Despite the update of the space, however, Marla's office remained a sort of "catch all" for anything that didn't have a dedicated storage place in the home. An, "insane mess" as Marla called it; she was ready for a space where she could productively work from home - a place that was multifunctional, beautiful and consistent with the casual elegance of the rest of the house.
