A reader sent us the following question:
Love your site, your style, your ideas. I’m a professional organizer and have a client who uses binders regularly in his home office. However, they tend to fall over (since they’re not necessarily square, more triangular in shape when vertical) so they don’t work so well with bookends. Any suggestions? My client is a DWR fan and style is important. Let me know if you have any brilliant ideas for keeping his binders from tipping over!
In my experience, the best binder storage solution is the Binder Storage Carousel. The whole of the storage system is based on the idea that notebooks are triangular in shape instead of square. In addition to the tower model, there are also desktop styles. Unfortunately, though, all styles typically come with a high price tag commonly associated with corporate office furniture.
A google search for “binder storage carousel” will yield you dozens of companies that make similar products. The carousels usually look the same way, so I would find out about construction and materials before making a suggestion to your client. Personally, the mid-century modernist in me loves the sleek, metal, industrial look of these.
