This outdoor space is quite nice, when you take into consideration the tile flooring on the patio. Normally you’ll see a concrete slab or even a really nice wood decking for an outdoor living space. I’m not a big fan of hard flooring under my feet when I play pool for a a few reasons, 1. I get a little rambunctious when playing billiards sometimes and I would hate for my cue ball to fly off the table and hit that beautiful tile and crack either the flooring or the ball, and 2. I play barefoot sometimes and like a little padding as I stalk my next shot. But on to the table, it is a rich dark red cabinetry with a matching red felt. I particularly like the architectural details that go into the structure that holds this table up. This billiards table has the obligatory leather lined drop pockets which are always a nice touch, even if almost every table has them, it’s like a time honored tradition. This patio is obviously covered with the presence of sturdy brick columns, so you could even play in the rain, if it isn’t coming in sideways. If you want, you could have a seat in one of the pink outdoor Adirondack chairs, or lean against the wall or one of the columns. In any case I would love to play a few games of pool in this billiards “room”!
The Only Thing Motorcycles and Hockey have in Common is the Air!
This game room has a higher end air hockey table by Sportcraft. The table features the hockey markings on the surface, puck returns and an overhead score bar. I particularly like the other little accessories on the side of the table to make the game a little more interesting. Also most air hockey tables have the goal right up against the rail, this table allows you to hide the puck behind or to shoot and confuse your opponent, that is if you are fast enough. The motorcycle seems to be a nice art piece and keeping the curtains closed next to the table is a good idea due to the puck flying off the table. What’s that, you never had the puck fly off the table? Maybe this isn’t your game then. I wonder if you could patch in your iPod to the speakers in the overhead score bar.
A stunning billiards table without a lot of detail
This billiards room at first glance looks bland and pretty straightforward. However, upon further inspection, it is elegant in it’s simplicity. The legs are vertical examples of the most sturdy supports I’ve ever seen. Even though they are more than likely hollow, the carpentry to hide that fact is a fine act of craftsmanship. The rails and the pockets flow well with the rest of the table design, as does the color of the felt. The rest of the room has a warm feel to it and keeps the distractions to a minimum so the players can concentrate on how to take out their opponent. There seems to be plenty of light from either end of the table during daytime games and I would hope for a decent lighting fixture for evening play. One last thing about the table; I doubt this billiards table has been created by a company, and I believe the owner/builder is a full time woodworker. I welcome any correction or further details about this table.
Red And Tan Are An Excellent Color Combination
The billiards room of today has a table that is beautiful in color combination and design. The dark red finish on the cabinetry is still in pristine condition, with matching red leather drop pockets. The sturdy claw-foot legs have some very nice carvings as well as the bottom rail. Tan felt covering the slate goes well with the wood finish. The rest of the room has some selected artwork and a floor cue rack. There is one wooden chair for your opponent and plenty of light from the stain glass window in the door and side window. The owner says that even though it is not pictured there is a Tiffany style lamp with an antique brass finish hanging above the surface of this nice billiards table.
An Abundance Of Billiards Accessories
Today’s billiards room, rather last weeks submitted photos (see here for explanation) has a feeling of the Caribbean for me. The larger Terra Cotta floor tiles remind me of the time I spent in Cozumel. That was a wonderful week. I digress. The owner of this entertainment room has acquired enough chairs and cues to accommodate a small tournament. The table itself looks of a sturdy design and build, and covered in laminate will ensure the surface can be repaired fairly easily should it get damaged. The bar artwork on the walls is a nice complement to the Tiffany style table light. I also suspect that little dark box high on the wall is a speaker for ambient music, and for those nervous between shots, you can pull out the trampoline against the wall and burn off some calories.
