BILLIARDS TABLES AT HOME
Billiards and Pool Tables are showing up everywhere, again!
They conjure ideas of smokey pool halls with bikers in leather vests or Poncey robber-barons in velvet slippers preening about in mahogany paneled rooms…
I believe people are enjoying sports and activities more these days where they can actually talk to each other:
Golf, billiards or even power-walking which allows friends to talk whilst playing and doing something mildly competitive.

They can be fabricated from exotic woods with custom-colored felts and kept right in the living room, or made of weatherproof, color-coordinated materials and used poolside, on a rooftop or even on the beach!
Yes, there are many types of outdoor pool tables for poolside, penthouse terraces or lakeside pergolas.
