Looks like this filing cabinet got an overhaul with yellow spray paint. This idea works great for this space, even though the cabinet is not trying to disguise itself as anything.
It's amazing what a coat of spray paint can do for a hideous metal filing cabinet.

Pep up with colour Spray paint will give a redundant metal filing cabinet a fabulous new sheen – the only conundrum being which colour to choose. This two-drawer unit has been sprayed in zingy canary yellow and now sits proudly as a contemporary side table.
