2010 NKBA Design Competition - Specialty Room: Third Place
A stately and traditional billiard room was created to meet the client's vision of a space to entertain that reflects the masculine design preferences and construction practices of a turn-of-the-century lumber baron. The designer brought this showcase room together with exceptional materials and attention to the traffic flow based on the shape of the bar top and the beautiful lake view. Opposite the bar is a double-sided fireplace with a hand-carved mantel, above which is a large television. Mahogany center panels on the walls, rich honey onyx countertops, and walnut and limestone flooring bring glowing complementary tones together, with the accents of distinctive lighting fixtures that appear to burn warm hues from within.
