Most pool tables look like they were resurrected from the basement of a 70's-era Sigma Pi House; the Filotto Table from Italian design firm Calma e Gesso looks like it was lifted from the Guggenheim. The crystal table was designed to give the illusion that it's floating, so its black felt top appears to hover over the four transparent legs. A thin steel wire embedded in the frame provides structural support and lends the glass additional texture; it also allows players to adjust the height and width of the regulation-sized table. Just be sure your game room has sturdy floors: The Filotto weighs in at 1,653 pounds. Price upon request; calmaegesso.com
And it deserves pride of place in your home.
