Lovers of contemporary design who nevertheless harbor beneath their streamed lines a fondness for tradition will find this innovative billiard table the perfect postmodern twist on that time-honored centerpiece of the well-appointed game room.
A 21st-century interpretation of that centuries-old staple, Monarch Billiards’ Cherry Hill Table is a stunning composition of brushed and polished stainless steel, African teak wood, and leather that not only imbues its surroundings with an air of elegance and dynamic energy, but provides hours of entertainment for guests and hosts alike.
