Gameroom & BarTransitional Home Bar, Chicago

Dark, moody, soothing, rich are words that describe this Game Room. A cluster of Tom Dixon pendant light fixtures are used over the black felt pool table. The walls are dark walnut wood paneling and the bar is black honed marble. The floor is a dark stained oak chevron. The vibe is sophisticated, masculine saloon / lounge. Custom built in details abound, such as the electric guitar cabinet, pool cue storage cabinet, dart board, two flush mounted plasma tv's, and built-in seating with drink ledges. Edison filament sconces add to the vintage feel of the rooms and the LED cove ceiling light detail and LED under step lighting create subtle lighting effects. This room elevates mancave to a new level.

    Hi Ben - Thanks so much for appreciating our design work and your comment. We worked hard with this design to create a hip and sophisticated Pool Room - Not your average game room for sure. The Tom Dixon Pendants were a key part of the design. We used discrete metal mounts at the ceiling to eliminate the standard 4" diameter round black canopies from Tom Dixon. Tech Lighting is the company that offers these discrete mounts. The Tom Dixon's work great over this pool table - good light on the table and they look awesome. Thanks again - dSPACE Studio

    Thanks for including the mount information, I'm using these in a wine room and don't want 4" individual mounts.

    The profile of the baseboard in this room is the same profile as the baseboard in the adjacent Entry Foyer. However, for this room the base was milled from Walnut and stained to match the wood paneling on the walls. Thanks for the question and good luck with your project!

    Hi, Could you please tell me what the floor is made of? How did you get that look? Thanks!

    Hello and thank you for your question. These Tom Dixon lights may be spaced a little closer in some instances because we wanted a more random look over the billiard table. The middle fixture itself is a bit larger at 36" wide, as you pointed out. Just be sure if to give each fixture a little breathing room if you are going with a random pattern such as this. If you can, try mocking up the fixtures on the floor first just to be sure. Best of luck with your project!

    Hello and thank you for your question! The overall room dimensions are 23'-9"x 15'-6". The perimeter drop is 9'-4" above the finished floor, and is offset 1'-6" away from the wall. The top of the ceiling is 10'-0". Since this is a historic structure from the late 1800's with high ceilings, we were able to drop the ceiling to make the game room feel more intimate. Keep this in mind if you ceiling is lower as a 1'-6" wide band around the ceiling might look disproportionate to the rest of the space. Good luck with your project!

    Hello and thank you for your question! Please see the response to your previous question regarding the overall room dimensions.

    As for the cove lighting, yes the interior depth is 4". It should be noted that there is a 3/4" wide edge to hide the light inside the cove; otherwise the light will not project entirely upwards. Good luck with your project!

    Hello and thank you for your kind words! What you are seeing here in the image is a light cove just below the crown molding, about 4 inches in depth to hold the LED strips. The crown molding is about 7 inches thick and is the same as the crown in other rooms. We hope this helps, and good luck with your project!

    Hi Joan, great question. You are correct - that is not the canopy that comes with the fixture. It's called the FreeJack Port Alone from Tech Lighting, and we like the minimal profile on the ceiling of the Port Alone. Thanks for your question and good luck with your project.

The pendants here come in a variety of shapes and sizes, adding a dramatic quality. The cove lighting makes the space glow and not feel so dungeonesque.

25. Contractor Tips: Finish Your Basement the Right WayHouzz readers clearly wanted to read about basements this year! This ideabook talks about all the basics and more from the contractor's point of view. Houzzers appreciated all of the tips, like talking to an insurance agent and taking important steps to prevent flood damage.

Becky Harris added this to New Classics: Tom Dixon's Beat Pendant LightsSep 4, 2012

Just because the Beats were inspired by pots and water vessels doesn't mean they are limited to the kitchen and the dining room. Beat lights create some seriously swanky billiard lighting. If this seems familiar, it's because Chuck Bass has a group of Beat Pendants over his pool table in his apartment on Gossip Girl.

Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Finish Your Basement the Right WayMay 30, 2012

When you think of finished basements, you probably think of a room that isn’t finished to the standards of the rooms upstairs. This doesn’t need to be the case. But the challenge of creating an inviting and beautiful space is greater in the basement, where the systems and infrastructure of your house need to be concealed tastefully. A finished basement definitely adds value to your home, but be sure to check with your insurance agent. Some finished basements may not be insured — and don’t expect a bedroom there to count in the total of bedrooms when you sell the house.
