TAYBLES is comprised of brothers three young artists / entrepreneurs (Taylor, Justin and Zach) who set out to make a product that would not only be a functional piece of furniture, but also a nostalgic piece of art. Influenced by homemade mixtapes, pop-art and modern design, TAYBLES caters to musicians, artists and the young at heart.
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 Cassette Tape Coffee Table was so they enlisted the help of Taylor's brother, Zach, who was a skilled woodworker to take things up a level and perfect the design. With Zach in rural South Dakota working out of a barn and Taylor / Justin in Los Angeles, they spent
the next 6 months sending drawings back and forth, locking in ergonomics of the unique design and going through the process of taking steps towards confirming a design patent on the Cassette Tape Coffee Table. TAYBLES was officially born.
