Best Shuffleboard Tables 2017
Shuffleboard tables have become the new hot game room trend in America over the last few years. Replacing many pool tables and other games in homes and commercial projects, the Table Shuffleboard is an affordable, uniquely challenging, and most importantly fun game choice. The boards are free standing and available in 9' to 22' lengths and hundreds of styles and materials. Even outdoor shuffleboard tables are becoming a option with some of the more specialized manufacturers. Here is a quick list of the top shuffleboard table designs for 2017 in the DC area available at Robbies Billiards Home & Patio locations:
The Parsons Shuffleboard by Plank and Hide is a simple, clean mid century modern design based on the ionic Parsons table. Available in black this shuffleboard is a great home table for customers looking for style and play-ability without the designer price tag. Available in-stock when we are not sold out the Parsons in 12' and 14' options is our best selling home shuffleboard table option.
The Pavilion Shuffleboard table by Olhausen Billiards in Tennessee is a basic but durable and customizable Made in the USA design. As our least expensive commercial grade shuffleboard customers choose from 16" wide or 20" wide tournament playfields and 9, 12', or 14' lengths. Best of all the Pavilion is stained to match your existing or new Olhausen pool table so most customers see this as an add-on to their game room. Another sub-$4000 starting price point does not hurt, making the Pavilion another best seller in the DC area.
The designer darling of 2017 is the Loft Shuffleboard by California House furniture. The Loft is one of the finest quality boards on the market with up-market features like solid walnut inlay on the board and full Italian leather pads on the end. Just like driving an expensive European car the Loft has some of the best fit and finish options in the industry. This reclaimed wood look is very "on trend" and we don't see it falling off any time soon. Lead time can be over two months on a custom build Loft Shuffleboard but with matching pool table, game table, and even bar stools it is worth the wait!
While most serious shuffleboard tables run $3,000 or more there is still a market for fun tables for the whole family. Unfortunately most of them sell online only and are cheaply made with no warranty or eye to quality. The one exception to the value price point that we have found is the Classic by CL Bailey. While I would never compare this to a poured poly shuffleboard in terms of play-ability the Classic is by far the nicest sub-$2,000 shuffleboard on the market right now. The simple 9' version remains one of our best sellers for families especially around the Holidays.
The Balcony Outdoor Shuffleboard by All Weather Billiards is new this year but already a big hit with the DC design community. This is the first stone top table shuffleboard in the world with a solid metal support frame and a real lifetime commercial warranty. The powder coated aluminum frame supports a granite playfield with available custom graphics for home or business. These are perfect for pool side entertaining or roof top apartment building common areas!
Another high end modern style custom table that designers LOVE is the La Condo Shuffleboard by Canada Billiard. Fully realized in solid beech wood in the factory in Canada the La Condo is popular in upscale modern office buildings, apartments, and residences. Commercial grade and contract rated the La Condo Shuffleboard matches the La Condo dining pool table design. Shown here in black lacquer other popular options include stainless steel frames, natural walnut wood, and custom dining tops.
Another designer rustic look that is very popular this year is the Isaac Shuffleboard and matching pool table by Plank and Hide. The table is finished in a silver medium tone on solid Oak wood that is very on trend with companies like Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. While the Isaac is priced and intended for the residential market at under $5,000 many designers and picking up the Isaac for commercial projects due to the looks and heavy duty construction. We show the Isaac in our Rockville location year round in the 12' or 14' size if you get a chance to try it out for yourself.
In case you didn't know industrial and reclaimed wood combined with metal is HOT in interior design right now. The Industrial Rustic shuffleboard pictured here sits on unique massive cast iron legs and features reclaimed wood on the cabinet and playfield. Each piece is unique and built from 100% reclaimed parts for an authentic look and feel. While commercial grade this shuffleboard works just as well in homes making it the #1 most requested designer look Shuffleboard for 2017.
