If a blend of contemporary style and American pool sounds like the ideal combo, then the Lafite is the table for you. It gives you a real taste of the idyllic French countryside where it’s made. As a result, this table has the ability to bring the outdoors in, with its organic-style wood finish. Alternatively you can choose a white finish, which makes for a clean, modern look in your home.
This table can also become a dining table that seats up to eight guests. The optional wooden tops instantly convert your pool table, and are easily added by simply lifting on top of the cabinet. If you want a complete dining set up, you can also purchase matching benches, so you’re ready to serve dinner as soon as it arrives.
Made in France by the famous René Pierre company, the Lafite is another example of their sleek, modern take on the American pool table. Within the table is a metal frame that supports the table and combines with the legs, to give you that extra sturdiness that you might not find with other tables. The legs also come with adjustable levelling feet, so you can ensure you have a flat playing field wherever you decide to set up.
It may be small, but the Lafite can hold its own with its 19mm-thick carved slate bed. The quality of the slate and its fitted cloth ensure an accurate playing experience. The slate is covered with a Simonis speed cloth in blue, green or red.
If you’re a fan of American pool but perhaps don’t have the space for a full-size table, the Lafite is perfect for you. Measuring just over 6ft in length externally, you’ll get the experience of American pool with a table that will go where most American tables can’t. Even at 6ft, you can enjoy an exciting, speedy game of American pool.
The drop pockets on this table are wider than those of a British table. And angular rubber cushions offer responsive rebound performance, making your shots bounce further across the table. The Simonis cloth is napless and made to American spec, increasing the speed at which each shot travels.
