Billiard Room Decor

Billiards is a game that has been around for a good, long while. It’s believed to have evolved from lawn games such as croquet, bocce and bowls, when the game moved indoors it was originally played on a table covered with a green cloth to simulate a lawn. It’s thought that the word billiards derives from the French word billart or billette, meaning stick or perhaps for the French word bille, meaning ball. Billards, as a game, has been around since the 1500s. Mary, Queen of Scots, was said to have been wrapped in the cover for her billiard table after her death.

Types of Billiards

Billiards is used as a sort of umbrella term for several games that are played on a tabletop using a cue and a table that has side bumpers and pockets. The bumpers were derived from low walls placed around the tables to keep the balls from flying off and were refined when players discovered that they could bounce the balls off the walls, creating a new aspect of the game. The three main types of billiards are carom billiards – played on a table without pockets; pool, which includes a variety of games played on a table with pockets; and English billiards and Snooker, which require a table with six pockets. With that said, there are many variants of each.

A Popular Game with Varied History

Said to have been played by both commoners and kings, the game became associated with gambling and keeping low company. A “pool hall” was the subject of the song “Trouble in River City,” from the musical, “Music Man” wherein it was suggested that it would corrupt youth. Yet it is a game of skill and was sufficiently fascinating that a billiards table often graces a family game room in modern homes. Whether playing against someone else or simply honing skills, a billiard table can be a source of lasting entertainment, requiring hand/eye coordination and even a certain amount of mathematical acumen. Here are ten examples of ways to decorate your game room with various forms of billiards wall décor.
