Tambours & Filing

Are you Looking for a Tambour Cabinet, the Ultimate Storage?

At Smart Office Furniture we have a wide range on offer. We were one of the first independent furniture websites after our founders set up the website to move away from furniture transport which they did for years, so they had an eye for the best. Now under new ownership, the only way is up. As we’re independent, we partner with a large number of trusted suppliers who ship products directly. This means we can offer more variety than our competitors as we’re not reliant on our own warehouse space. Our focus is on continually updating our range to suit every space, and we have experienced sales staff who can make recommendations we’re sure you’ll love. So when you need a tambour cabinet in NZ, we’re the only logical choice. Read More

Functional and Stylish Tambour Units

Did you know that the word tambour comes from tambourine meaning ‘drum, frame or circle’? Traditionally made from wood, the thin slats on these cupboards look similar to the cords on the side of a drum, so this is likely the reason for the origin of the word. These slats are typically placed on a flexible backing so the door can fold away along curved tracks. This makes a tambour door unit an ideal storage system for a small office space as you don’t have to allow room for the doors to open outward like traditional office cabinets. You could fit a small unit under a desk for individual storage for example. As the sliding doors are thin there’s also no wasted storage space inside. 

Wooden tambour units have largely now been replaced with metal as it’s cheaper and the metal shelving inside can hold a lot of weight. So if you’re looking for a storage solution for all the paperwork that seems to pile up in an office, these solid units can handle it. We offer a tambour unit in many sizes depending on the office space you have. We also have file hanging rails to add to an existing cupboard to help you maximise space. We even offer a unit with a planter on top so we can help you bring some much-needed green into your office without sacrificing storage.
