VHS Coffee Table: Be Kind, Rewind (and Keep Your Feet off of It!)
April 9th, 2012
VHS tapes might have gone the way of the dinosaur, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fond memories of the dominant video format before the rise DVD, Blu-ray and streaming. Kick back, relax, and remember the days when you had to rewind your movies and keep them away from magnets with this awesome handmade VHS tape coffee table.
While it’s not made out of actual VHS tapes
, this stack of three giant wooden VHS tapes is way cooler than that. The limited-edition VHS tape coffee table from Amsterdam’s T76, and is handcrafted from teak wood in Indonesia.
The table features intricately carved details from VHS cassettes, including those windows that let you see through to the reels, and handwritten titles on the labels. Since each cassette seems to have multiple titles, and the write-protect tabs haven’t been punched out, I can only imagine these are bootlegged copies of these classic movies. Quick, call the MPAA!
The VHS coffee table measures appx. 49″ (W) x 25.5″(D) x 16″ (H), and weighs just under 80 pounds, shipped. It sells for $1980 (USD), plus shipping, and can be ordered from t76 by emailing them at order[at]t76design.com
. Just make sure not to pop open the side and pull all the tape out of it. I know you want to.
