What's The Taylah?: 

The Taylah is a multi-functional table that will enhance your lifestyle. To look at the Taylah, it looks like an ordinary table, however, remove the table top slats and the table simply transforms. Use half of the table, use a quarter? It's up to you! We don't want to dictate how you use your table, just give you the freedom to be able to use it as many different ways as possible.

 

  

Here at geeknson, we know everyone has different needs and wants. That is why we want to offer you the choice to make the table your own. As well as the different stain and padded surface choices, you can also purchase additional accessories. Now you will notice, some reward pledges already offer accessories such as cup holders / counter holders. All of these accessories are made from plexiglass which is strong enough to place drinks in. The table has a 360* groove that goes right the way around the table. This means you have the freedom to choose where your accessories are best suited. Whether that be inside or outside of the table, again, its up to you! In terms of ordering and purchasing extra accessories we will be taking orders once the campaign has finished. Below is a list of what will be available:

  • Wine glass holder - £20 
  • Strake board / table divider - £35 
  • Counter / game piece holder - £25 
  • Bag for slats - £40 
  • Table top slats set - £140 
  • Cup holder - £32
  • Foam Armrest - £10

Lets introduce: The Taylah:

The material used for the table is hardwood ash and you will have a choice of three different stains (oak, teak and walnut). We will not be using unknown or unheard of woods. 

There are four table slats that sit on top of the table that are attached in a locking mechanism at either end. In the rewards table, you can pledge to buy the slats or have the table without them. 

The table can sit up to six people with dimensions of the inside playing surface being 5ft x 3 ft. The whole height of the table is 77cm. The table also has a grooved edge which will be 1-1.5 inches wide. 

The grooved edge gives you the flexibility to place any accessories (cup-holders, counter holders) anywhere around the table. Once the project is funded, included as standard are 4 foam armrests, an acrylic layer and a padded surface. There will be a choice of three colours for the surface (if stretch goal is achieved). If the stretch goal is not met the colour is blue. The surface is very durable and is easy to clean just as the rest of the table is too.

 

  Now you may wonder what use an acrylic sheet has for you? Well, if you like to play board games then this is ideal for RPG and miniature games. Other options make it useful for children copying pictures underneath. Or simply, another place for you to display their artwork without it being ruined or disturbing the use of the table.

Why it works for you:

So, why do I need this table I hear you ask? Well, the possibilities can go as far as you let them! First of all, this table works as a great dining room table with room for family and friends. We all know how often accidents happen, so we've created a system so you don't have to worry. The slats are able to prevent any spills that may happen with our very own Keep Dry System. The video below gives a demo of how it works.

When you decide to remove the slats, the real fun begins! Personally, as a family run business, the table is perfect with our children and family lifestyle. The table gives you the freedom to use your space as you choose. 

Have you ever been in the middle of a board game and the table needs to be used for dinner? This was a big problem for us as it meant putting away an unfinished game. However, this is where The Taylah shines through, as simply put the slats back on and return to your game when you choose. 

We find this aspect especially useful for board game nights, homework and general playing. If you choose to purchase a table divider, you could have dinner set on one side whilst a game is being played on the other. The table divider also works to stop any unwanted items going under the already covered part of the table.

  • Messy play with children; mess is contained 
  • Turns into an amazing gaming table 
  • Allows two or more different activities at once If activity has not finished, hide it away until later 

 If you like to play board games like ourselves, then we feel The Taylah is ideal for your games. It gives enough room for you to set up a full game and not worry about how long the game will last as you can simply can put back on the slats and continue later. Below are some imagines showing how cool the games look!

Warranty and Assembly:

We don't think there is a better way to show how much we believe in this table than offering it to you with a four month warranty. If you need to contact us about the table, you can do so by phone, email or letter. There will always be somebody willing to help.

In terms of assembly, the Taylah is no different to flat pack furniture. The Taylah will be simple to assemble and if you need to, easy to dismantle and reassemble. A detailed and friendly assembly guide will be included which means you should have your table ready in approximately 15-20 minutes.

Time-frame:

  • May - patenting the prototype
  • June - gather feedback from players at conventions 
  • July - kickstarter campaign is being built and launched
  • August - kickstarter campaign ends
  • September - finalizing the prototype and making production ready 
  • October - mass production scheduled 
  • February - mass production completion
  • March - tables delivered to warehouse 
  • April - tables delivered to backers

Geeknson are a family run business with over 20 years experience working with hardwood. With a vast and worldwide customer base already, we know how to excite and delight customers with gaming tables, coffee tables and storage. We are renown for the fantastic customer service we provide and will always go that extra mile for our customers constantly providing accurate cost and delivery timescales. We have been to many conventions and shows with our furniture and loved all of the feedback received. We have listened to our customers requests for an affordable table that ticks all of the boxes without neglecting our established high standards. This is how the Taylah table was designed. Within the design process, we have worked hard to make sure we can bring this table to everyone at an amazing price by:

  • Standardising the table options 
  •  Bulk production from our own established production site
  • Minimal assembly required. Smaller packaging means a smaller shipping cost for you
  • All taxes included

Geeknson have been producing custom built tables for many years but haven't before been able to make a table in bulk that will drive down the cost enough to make this table attractive enough to any budget. This kickstarter campaign is the only way to make this happen. If the funding is not met, this table can not be made, and we want you to be part of something special! If you would like to check out any of our range, you can find our website at the top of the page. Or, have a look at what others think:

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

The production of our tables using our own production site. The production process is in place, tried, tested and trusted. There is limited risk for us to be able to find a way to meet the Kickstarter campaign at our already existing production site.
The Taylah Board Game table is packed to high standard to ensure safe arrival but also to allow easy shipping.

How do we overcome THEM?

One of the ways we want to show our confidence is to offer a 4 month warranty on the tables.
We also have plans for new accessories to be added as a future option for your table, long after the campaign comes to an end.
- Excellent knowledge.
- Worldwide shipping experience and reliable partners.
- Own experienced craftsman checking every stage of production.
- High quality and standards in hardwood furniture manufacturing.
- Quality guaranteed.
- Meeting deadlines.
- Designed with future development in mind.
