Inspired by the Arts and Crafts tradition, the Linear storage collection is built in a small woodworking shop in northern Wisconsin. Its refined, yet durable design features details like dovetail joinery and handcrafted hardware. Linear is available in two distinctive finishes that highlight the beauty of solid wood: natural wood protected with oil and wax or stained wood sealed with lacquer.

Our lateral file cabinets maximize filing space while retaining Linear's signature simplicity.

Customer comments about Linear 29h 67w Lateral File Cabinet with Wood Base:

This is the first R&B product I've found substandard. Although it looks good from the front, I was surprised at the lack of quality in the construction, especially compared with the Ellis desks (of which I have two). It was just delivered today so I have yet to use it but here are my initial reactions: (1) I realize it is made in a wood shop, but the drawers were still coated with wood dust, both in and out. It took a good deal of time to clean them... my Ellis desk drawers were clean and ready to use; (2) Unlike the Ellis desk, whose drawers have a slight varnish or shellac inside, the inside of the doors and drawers in this Linear product are still rough finish whatsoever; (3) the drawer and door side boxes are strong, but the bottoms seem too thin and weak to hold a large number of weighty files (but that's what a file cabinet is supposed to do); (4) you have your choice of base, but if you choose a walnut body and a walnut base, it seems like the walnuts should match somewhat. I realize variation is why you get walnut, but one of the bases is blond right next to a dark walnut attempt made to make them similar; (5) I got the stainless steel handles. I think they should be indented underneath... instead, they have no easy way to grip them. I'll use it but it's a disappointment in quality.

  • Linear 29h 67w Lateral File Cabinet with Wood Base


    Is it possible to get a single linear lateral file cabinet with wood base (just one drawer)? If so, what would be the dimensions? We only have room for one drawer because it must fit under a window sill, so the entire lateral cabinet can not be more than about 20" high. Thank you.

    Do you offer this with just the two file drawers but not the additional three drawers on the side? I have the four drawer version (67" wide) and really like it. I need the two more lateral file drawers but don't have room for the additional 3 storage drawers. I tried your linear custom but the dimensions don't match the piece I have(29" high). Thanks!

      We do not offer customization to the sizes or inserts of the stocked cabinets in the Linear collection.
