Pool tables have come a long way since the rich history of billiards began in the 15th century. Today, pool tables can be constructed using a wide range of materials, colors and styles, opening the door to endless possibilities for billiard room designs. With the help of a professional, a billiard room can be designed as not only a fun and entertaining gathering space, but also as a unique expansion of your home’s style and your own personal aesthetic.
One of my clients wanted a spacious billiard room complete with sitting areas and a media center so there would be something for everyone to enjoy. I have to admit, I had a lot of fun with this design project. Inspired by the backgammon board, I used a diamond motif to add eclectic interest and highlight the unique angles of the pool table and media center. The two handcrafted bar tables became the perfect finishing touch to add intriguing shapes and fun pops of color.
A modern pool table perfectly suits the contemporary look and feel of any space. Curving arches immediately catch the eye to create an intriguing focal point. I love the warm, glowing palette, as well as the textures of coffered ceilings, which can give pool rooms a rich, rustic elegance.
A traditional billiard room has a fabulous Old World feel. Dark greenery not only adds sculptural appeal, but also brings out the green accents in a gorgeous red and gold rug. Decorative carvings of a stately pool table and tray ceilings can be beautifully echoed by wall patterns and scrolled iron railings.
