Ranging in price between $1,700 USD and $2,200 USD, Taybles are beautiful coffee tables that look like old school cassette tapes. The price may seem excessive, but the last time I saw something like this, it was going for close to $5,000 USD. Yikes.

The TAYBLES started a few years ago as a mere dream of Taylor’s. “As a kid, I grew up with a tape player in my car listening to Dad's old cassettes like Rolling Stones and Cheap Trick." Excited to work in a new medium, Taylor set to work on making the TAYBLES prototype in his closet sized workshop at the apartment he managed in Los Angeles. “I would often work late at night, and would worry about my tenants complaining about noise.” After completing the prototype Taylor and Justin realized what a fantastic product the TAYBLES was. They moved production out of the storage closet and into the hands of Taylor’s brother Zach who specializes in woodworking and has been building furniture for the last 10 years (his most prized possession is his hand-crafted pool table). Together they collaborated to redesign the TAYBLES to the unique, simplistic, captivating design that you see today.
