No pool table or billiards room is complete without the addition of a lighting fixture to add atmosphere and brightness to the space. Because it is made to
light the whole playing surface, a billiards lamp is specifically designed to mimic the proportions of a billiards table for ideal illumination. The form that
best suits this task is typically is a shaded pendant with a longer oblong shape or a fixture with a row of separate lights. This style of lighting fixture
also works well hung over a game table, however, its design is tailored to be properly sized for pool tables, so there is not a lot of variance in
Yet, while sizes may be more uniform, there is still quite a variety of styles of billiard table lights to choose from. Some popular styles of pool table
light fixtures include Tiffany style lights, fixtures with multiple separate lamps mounted on a single bar, and rustic and nature inspired designs. Tiffany
lamps are a stained glass style of fixtures. This style is characterized by detailed colored glass work and the soldered metal borders that surround each
piece of glass. There are a couple particularly iconic designs of Tiffany lamps, such as the Coca-Cola billiard light, geometric art deco motifs, and
designs with scalloped top and bottom edges, that would add a classic touch to any pool table. The bar-mounted style of lamp is generally more homogenous
in terms of shape, but comes in a variety of different finishes, and with additions of artistic touches like decorative scrollwork or differing hues of
glass shades. Rustic and nature inspired lamps also come in a variety of materials and particular configurations, but nearly all of them feature pine tree,
mountain, and hunting motifs, usually in silhouette.
