07 Jan Billiards on a Budget
Justin Bieber. Tommy Hilfiger. Will Smith. Taylor Swift. They all have custom bespoke pool tables in their homes that cost as much as $100,000.
These pool tables are crafted by a company called Blatt Billiards, a family owned and operated entity that has been in business for nearly a century.
“Blatt’s list of high-profile clients is seemingly endless,” a Business Insider video begins. “Arnold Schwarzenegger. Mariska Hargitay. Denzel Washington. Scarlett Johansson. Tom Hanks. Alex Rodriguez. Bobby Flay. Dustin Hoffman. And Paul Sorvino. Each table takes anywhere from six months to a year to build depending on the intricacies of the design. Blatt is able to hand build about 300 custom tables a year. The company’s most expensive masterpiece on hand: A $100,000 table covered in hand carvings that took about a year to make. But the 50 artisans and woodworkers at Blatt don’t just build custom tables, they also restore old ones. Three thousand antique tables are stored at the factory in New Jersey.”
Of course, most mere mortals do not have the discretionary dollars on hand to afford such a luxurious game table. Instead of spending their hard-earned money on exquisite carvings, detailed inlays and dramatic leg shapes, they are paying mortgages, funding college tuitions and making car payments. Instead of stressing out over a felt color, they are trying to budget their bills.
