High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 12, 1972, High Point, North Carolina I a High Point Fiir Pron Friday May 12, 1972 Interior designer likes look of old game tables by Carlston Varney president Dorothy Draper a co. Inc. The american family is playing More at Home these Days and judging from the number of game tables which i have seen on the Market i gather As the old saying goes the family that plays together stays together. I have seen Many Checkerboard top tables both Antiques and reproductions As Well As Modem Parsons style pieces of red lacquer with Black and White playing Field set in the top. Game tables for checkers dominoes or cribbage have been popular for years and besides being fun. They Are also decorative. I find a card table of Walnut with a Checkerboard top More interesting than a simple table with a Plain solid Wood top. When planning a Corner arrangement of furniture in the family room Why not choose a Checkerboard top table with four chairs or consider placing a game table with four chairs in front of a window in an apartment living room. Tie chairs also can be used for additional seating at the sofa conversation grouping. Pool tables have loads of character. These tables Are Large some nine or ten feet Long but there Are also eight foot tables available. I like the old tables they remind me that 50 or 60 years ago the wealthy people had billiard rooms in the Home. I was most interested in a Modem Pool room which i saw recently in the Beverly Hilis California apartment of a Young lawyer. One of the two bedrooms was converted into a Pool room with an old table dating Back to about 1850. Walls in the room were of Green Felt above a Walnut Dado. What amazed me about the Pool room was that it converted into a dining room. A table top which matched the finish of the legs and apron of the Pool table covered the Felt top to turn it into a dining table. The top was in three sections so it was easy to store. There Are Many places across the country where you can Purchase old billiard tables and at some Good prices. Naturally Many of the old tables require refinishing and new Felt tops. Do not thins that the traditional Green is the Only color you can use for the Felt top. Why not pick Royal Blue Bright red or Black Felt for your table top one of my friends has a Mustard Gold lacquered Pool table with Brilliant paprika Orange Felt top it looks delightful in the family room which has chocolate Brown and White plaid carpeting and chocolate Brown Walls with White trim.
