I actually own some identical furnishings from my Husband's British father !
The 2 benches and the little oval table with the flaps.

What is the subfloor in this basement? - Were you able to install the pine board directly to concrete (glue, concrete, floating)? Did you have to do any special prep for the floor or underside to prevent moisture leaching from the concrete? Sorry, lots of questions but I am looking to finish my basement and this looks to be econimical at first glance since pine boards can be had on the cheap.

Hello, very, very nice room! I was wondering if you could tell me the height of the ceiling - I would like to see if the same look is possible in my basement. Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Martine Resnick added this to 8 Ways to Enjoy a Round of English Pub Style
Select the right furniture. Choose something traditionally English to furnish your pub-style space. First made in the 1700s, Windsor chairs have a distinctive saddle shape, a wooden seat and a hooped back, and can make a pub feel more refined. Vintage wooden stools and wooden tables have more of an authentic feel. The more wobbly (technical term) the stool and the more beer coasters you need to shove under the offending leg, the more genuine it'll look.
Mitchell Parker added this to Home Bars Tap Into Guy-Friendly Style
His wife had more control over the decor in the main house, so he made this his personal project. He reached out to architect Jimmy Crisp to help him realize his vision for creating a London-style pub in his basement. There was a strong push to get an old feeling just right in the space. The contractor even dragged chains across the stained pine floor to add dents and marks.Paint: Bittersweet Chocolate, Benjamin Moore
For those of you wondering about the usual basement details, the house was built in the 1980s, so the unfinished basement ceilings are nice and high, about 8½ feet. An exit door meet safety codes, and a bathroom, gym and sauna are elsewhere in the basement.More:Contractor Tips: How to Finish a Basement
