Five Luxurious Additions To The Games Room

Old fashioned fun and elevated craftsmanship for the remaining indoor times ahead. And because winter is starting to settle in.

By Terry Christodoulou 11/05/2020

Enforced quarantine’s meant a string of completed Netflix titles and a chance to finally nail sous-vide cooking. And while we look to be released from more stringent regulations, there’s still some old-fashioned fun to be had at home.

Here, five luxe games to see you through.
 
 

Louis Vuitton: Foosball Table


The European gameroom staple that is foosball has been elevated by Louis Vuitton. Hand crafted and made to order, this lavish table set receives the LV treatment via cowhide leather handles and panels, showcasing the iconic monogrammed pattern, alongside counting coins modelled after the monogram flower. Available in a range of colours and designs.

Approx. $150,000; louisvuitton.com
 

247 Billiards: Porsche Design Billiards Table

Porsche Design Studio raises the stakes in this collaboration with 247 Billiards. A unique and minimal table design that presents as if cut from a single piece, its made of stainless steel and aluminium with fine fabrics inclusive of calf-leather. It’s also highly customisable – grab a preferred tone or whatever best works with the interior scheme.

Approx. $45,000; 247billiards.com
 

11 Ravens: Avettore Air-Hockey

Avetorre

The USA based 11 Ravens has a reputation for creating outrageously luxurious games, extending across pool, ping-pong and recently, air-hockey tables. The pictured ‘Avettore’ takes its cues from aeronautics and boasts a high-pressure laminate playing field and a commercial blower that flows 6-cubic-metres of air per minute to keep the puck gliding. Not a fan of the traditional blue? Then choose the appropriate lacquer, stain, veneer or laminate to suit your tastes.

Approx. $38,700; 11ravens.com
 

Love Hultén: Pixelkabinett 42 – Retro Arcade Machine

A blast from the past doesn’t have to feel like it. Love Hultén, a Swedish craftsman, has combined his love of old-world gaming and arcades and fashioned it into luxe casings that won’t be eyesores in a home. Take the Pixelkabinett 42, made to order in the colour of your choosing, the standard version landing with a chosen classic arcade-style board and modern computer emulating favourite games of yesteryear.

Approx: $6,500; lovehulten.com
 

Sean Woolsey: Ping Pong Table


The solid black walnut top on a steel base brings this addictive game to new heights. The sugar maple centre line adds symmetry and keeps play fair, while the solid walnut legs are sleeved for adjustment – ensuring an even play surface. The net is made from powder-coated steel and comes with two custom made walnut paddles, three-star balls and a wall mount to keep it decluttered.

Approx. $15,200; seanwoolsey.com
