Give me your best desktop organizers!

I'm changing jobs and don't want to pack up/move my current desktop organizer set-up, which is both old and cheap/flimsy. I currently have two organizers I use, a stacked plastic organizer like this, and a wire file holder like this.

The replacement(s) I'm looking for would ideally:

1. Have space for mutiple file folders with easy accessibility/ability to view contents
2. Have at least two stacked "in box" style spots for me to store student work
3. Be sturdy
4. Look stylish/nice since I'll be staring at it all day
5. One piece or multiple pieces are both okay
6. Budget-wise, would be willing to spend up to around $150-200 on the whole setup, but obviously lower than that is fine too

I can obviously search for this on Amazon as well as the next person, but I'm curious if you have something specific to recommend or a creative set-up that you use.

Your taste may vary, but I love the Poppin stuff (available at container store and Amazon). It's all straight lines and bright colors. Here's their file storage stuff and their letter trays stuff.

I have a couple of things like this in my office, including this black metal organizer, which might meet your requirements.

Amazon has sturdy metal mesh products, like this one from Safco. Rolodex also has a metal mesh line of office accessories available on Amazon.

Also, if you like them, you can find some nice vintage pieces on Etsy and elsewhere. Here's an example.
