Robb Design Portfolio: Pick of the Pockets

  • Lori Bryan

Scratching on the eight ball would be preferable to leaving a scratch on the Bolero, the first pool table from Barcelona furniture maker Tresserra Collection (+34.93.200.49.22, www.tresserra.com). The Bolero features a frame of Ceylon lemon wood (the model shown, which is priced at about $112,000) or dark walnut ($118,000), vaquetilla leather–lined pockets, stainless steel fittings, and a drawer that holds a triangle, brush, and tray of American-style billiard balls. Worsted wool cloth sheathes the table’s slate surface, and LEDs within the side rails illuminate the exposed ball return ramp. The Bolero’s creator is 64-year-old Jaime Tresserra, a native of Barcelona who founded his namesake company 20 years ago and has designed furniture for the Hotel Arts Barcelona and Qatar’s Royal Palace.
