Everyone has a story. Sometimes we are the lead of that story, and sometimes we just witness them. Sometimes they’re boring, while some are utterly fascinating. These stories have been a part of our childhood, when Grandma used to tell them. These stories were a part of our glory when we talked about the good old days.
They may be in form of folklore or mythical legends or they may be stories of our daily lives and the little sparks that make our lives interesting and worth living. These stories make us who we all are.
Space Tale furniture is about such stories that have been an integral part of us. In Space Tale all the products tell a story. These stories are inspired by the great cultural heritage of India as well as the stories of our lives. These are the stories that we want to read and love every day and showcase them as an element of our culture. Furniture and products from Space Tale are meant to reflect a personality that is an extension of a quintessential Indian.

The story: Sprout To Cloud
The little seed found its cosy shelter in the moist, warm soil. The clouds above blessed the tiny seed with rain and the earth enveloped it in its loving care. Thus came out the fresh green baby leaves. Soon it developed into a beautiful sapling. With much love from the sky and the earth the little sapling grew into a big tree, with its branches reaching for the clouds. It showered the earth with gratitude. People received flowers and fruits. They breathed the fresh air and all lived happily ever after.
The nature with its various elements of creation always inspires us. Thus, we were inspired by the tiny sapling, the creation of life. Our new range Sprout To Cloud celebrates this joyous event. We tried to capture various stages of the creation in various furniture pieces. And these pieces come together to weave this beautiful story.
The Shoot Up revolving storage depicts the tree’s nature when it rises above the clouds. This piece has a revolving storage unit and a hanger to hang various day to day things. It can be placed in any of the rooms of the house and it would tell its own story. The sprout finally reached the cloud. The Silverline mirror gets its name from the aura of light emerging behind the cloud mirror.
The corner table, Bloom is inspired by the form of a bud. And the form has been used to its maximum function. This corner table fits into any corner and provides maximum usability. It also comes with a hidden storage with a lid to keep the handy little items nearer and safe. The carved edge also helps in keeping the charging chord in place.
The coffee table, Origin is a perfect centre piece for any living area. And it is the perfect balance of form and functionality. The simple circular form incorporates a circular storage in the centre. And the carving on the lid talks of the journey of the tiny seed. Taking the story ahead we have the cloud shelf and the droplet hangers. Together it tells the story of the rain cloud.
The Burgeon arm chair is the depiction of a young sprout. Made of pure mahogany wood, this hand crafted furniture piece is surely going to be the conversation starter. Lastly comes a revolving corner organizer, Spin the bud. The spinning nature of the product is inspired by the pattern in which the stem grows which adds to its functionality.
Our message for afforestation
The nature has given us all and now it is our turn to give it back something. Millions of trees get cut every day for human consumption and it is taking a toll on the environment. It is now our responsibility to save our nature. Join us in our journey towards a better world. Plant more trees because it is us who can change the world. More trees, more life….
