Billiard Table...

Peter has done really well over the last month, finding not only the grand piano, but also a billiard table. It is identical to the one below:

Peter bought it from a pool enthusiast who had not long since finished lovingly restoring it. But now with a young family, he has found that he no longer has time to play, and was looking for a good home for it. I can't think of a better home than WBP. Now we just need to set about sourcing materials to decorate the room

We have already chosen the lighting, which is being hand manufactured in the UK by craftsman David John:

and we have our hunting trip booked to bring back a stag's head (and some venison for the freezer).

Here are some other billiard room design ideas...

On one side of the hearth we have a door leading to the gold drawing room, on the other side of the hearth we will mirror with fearless symmetry the architrave of that doorway, but instead of there being a door, the architrave will frame a cue holder, topped with a score keeper, similar to these ideas...


  1. The colour can be absolutely anything, I suppose, but green looks the loveliest. And probably the most traditional. And you are right about getting all the accoutrements right - cues and cue holder, score boards and seating have to be in perfectly matched timber.

    Love your lights! They have to both function perfectly and look integrated with the table.

  2. A Grand Piano will be a nice addition. Who is the maker?
    Have you considered a harpsichord?

  3. The Piano is a Broadwood:

    The Billiard Table is made by an New Zealand firm called Hayden.

    I'm not sure that we will have room for a harpsichord, but I do covet your one!
