We love to collaborate, whenever and wherever the opportunity arises. For this mountainside retreat, we entered at a unique point in the process—to collaborate on the interior architecture—lending our expertise in fine finishes and fixtures to complete the spaces, thereby creating the perfect backdrop for the family of furniture makers to fill in each vignette. Catering to a design-industry client meant we sourced with singularity and sophistication in mind, from matchless slabs of marble for the kitchen and master bath to timeless basin sinks that feel right at home on the frontier and custom lighting with both industrial and artistic influences. We let each detail speak for itself in situ.

For some, there’s no better way to bond than over a little healthy competition, and a home game room can provide hours of fun. Whether you want to create a comfy space for family game nights or the perfect video game hangout, it helps to glean a bit of inspiration beforehand. For hardcore gamers and billiards lovers alike, consider the following design tips while you browse our photo gallery below.

1. Keep It Simple with Board Games Galore

If you’re in need of some budget-friendly ideas, don’t overthink it! Stock up on classic board games and perhaps hang a dartboard on the wall. As long as you’ve got a large coffee table and some good shelves to keep things tidy, you’ll be all set for Friday game night.

2. Channel Retro Style with Posters

Decorating a game room can be tricky — you want it to feel fun and relaxed but still just as stylish as the rest of your home. To toe the line, go retro with framed vintage posters of movies, cities or sports teams. The effect: playful yet sophisticated.

3. Repurpose Game Boards as Decor

In a small room, pick just one game that can double as decor. A chess board can add a sophisticated touch to your coffee table. Or, keep a tabletop foosball board on display. That way, your living room can easily become the de facto game-playing spot.

4. Go Classic with a Pool Table

If you’re working with a basement, why not add a pool table? With a centerpiece like that, your space is sure to become a go-to hangout. To keep the space looking fresh, add a modern pendant light or chandelier above.

5. Invite People to Stay a While

Having comfortable and supportive game room furniture is key to keeping everyone happy. If you’re playing video games, invest in some quality gaming chairs or classic bean bags. Otherwise, go for a plush, sectional couch.

6. Keep the Drinks Coming

Step things up a notch with a home bar. This can be as simple as a wine and beer fridge next to a glassware cabinet, or you can go all out with taps to pour beer or wine from. You’re about to become awfully popular!

7. Toss in Some Ottomans

On the other hand, if you’ll be playing with the whole family, focus on making everyone feel comfortable and included. Ottomans and floor pillows are perfect for kids to sit on while playing a board game, and can double as comfy backrests for movie nights and slumber parties.
