The Game Room

1st dibs, the prolific website that brings dealers and buyers together from all over the world, highlights some of the most entertaining game rooms. From classic revival game rooms with British flare to modern and contemporary pool halls. While themes and eras change, the games still remain consistent. I mean you still need a billiards table to play pool.

At the Bedford, New York home of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, layered floor coverings and a Victorian-style billiards table help create a lived-in, luxurious leisure space.

 

The only thing that can upstage the billiards table is the leather club chair for the players to relax in.

Bar Scene

Bar seating are some of the most difficult pieces to find. While a stool may look nice, it doesn’t always mean it’s comfortable, or the right height. Not to mention a vintage or well worn stool always looks good at a bar, no matter the aesthetic. Thats why having a wide variety of bar seating is always a good idea. One never knows which seat will fit perfectly.

As I reflect into the past year, I am grateful for all my creative friends and colleagues who give me encouragement, inspiration and support to curate a collection of beautiful objects from the past in their interiors and in their projects. I am also grateful for the lifestyle that is associated with my career from the buying trips abroad and the beautiful things I find on these trips to the relationships that have evolved from my lifestyle. I am also grateful for the success of the Legends event and the people that help make it such pivotal event in our industry.
