Most Popular Game Room Furniture Trends Winter 2013
The Holiday season is almost over so lets look at the hottest furniture and game room trends for winter 2013. This info is based on actual customer purchases over the holidays, so you will be seeing these in homes around the Maryland, Virginia, and DC area!
Table Games: As usual the hottest sellers are 8' Home Pool Tables and 12' Home Shuffleboard Tables. Larger size 9' Pool Tables and the 16' and longer Shuffleboard Tables are few and far between this winter. We have sold a few 7' Pool Tables and 9' Shuffleboard Tables but most customers are going for larger size games for the same dollars.
Wood Finish Trends: Matte Black Lacquer on Maple is the hot wood finish for Winter 2013 in the home game room. The black goes with just about any style room and never goes out of style. The best selling Espresso dark chocolate finish is the 2nd most popular wood finish, with the all time best selling medium mahogany chestnut finish in 3rd place.
Style Trends: Traditional Carved wood pool tables are still king this winter. Combined with the more modern Black Lacquer and Espresso wood finishes the traditional style ball and claw, carved rams head, and spoon style leg game tables have made a strong come back from last season. The more contemporary arch leg and waterfall style cabinet tables like the Olhausen Chicago and Pavilion Shuffleboard are the 2nd most popular design trend this winter in Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia Homes.
Best Selling Item: The overall best selling table game this winter is the Robbies Billiards Home & Patio exclusive Ellianna two-tone black lacquer/brandywine pool table in 8'. Many customers have special ordered this table in custom wood finishes, but most people LOVE the way the Brandywine top rails contrast against the contemporary matte black laquer maple cabinet. The 2nd most popular item is our all time best selling Grace 8' Pool table, followed by the Olhausen York Shuffleboard table in 12' length.
