The tables are handcrafted integrated with LED lighting powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The tables also feature cupholders and a slot to store magazines or books.

The team who designs and builds the iconic pieces of musics’ past is comprised of three young artists/entrepreneurs- Taylor, Justin, and Zach. The idea came about when Taylor was looking for a new medium to work with. With inspiration gathered from past memories of playing tapes in his dad’s car, Taylor created TAYBLES- the giant cassette coffee tables that revive old memories. The pieces cater to ‘musicians, artists and the young at heart’. One unit sells for about US $1,700 which you can find on their website.
