the cassette coffee table

By

Good news for people who get a bit nostalgic over cassettes: those fuzzy-sounding tapes are steadily becoming cool again. Artists are releasing music on them! Sales doubled in 2020! Someone’s even made a cassette coffee table!

Wait, what? *Cue the rewind sounds* A British maker by the name of Cambrewood has assembled a wooden table that honours the old-school media. Complete with a ‘label’ and all the grooves and details of a real cassette (minus the tangly tape), it’s enough to make any analogue music fan jump for joy. Unfortunately Cambrewood doesn’t ship to Australia, but we thought you’d quite like to admire its retro creation anyway. If you do happen to live in the UK, you can place an order over here.
