How many of us really utilise all the desktop space in our offices? One of the latest trends in interior planting are cabinet tops. These are great space-efficient planters that make use of otherwise wasted space on top of filing cabinets. They’re also a great way of stopping clutter from building up on the cabinets. They can be used to divide up open offices, which helps to give people a feeling of privacy and a sense of their own space.
