They are usually used in government and legal offices. Side file cabinets offer variety in office design. In Great Britain they are known as side filers. Edwin G. Seibels invented the vertical file cabinet, which is the most commonly used file cabinet nowadays, in 1898. The idea came to him while working in his father's insurance office. He improved the system of folding papers into envelopes and storing them into pigeon holes. He did away with the folding of papers.

The documents were stored vertically in drawers in large envelopes. File cabinets come in two sizes, letter sized papers and legal sized papers.
