Designed by three-time world billiards champion Vincent Facquet, the Luxury Billiards line of custom pool tables delivers an unparalleled level of detail and style.  This unbelievable collection contains three unique models: the platinum detailed Majeste pictured above; the etched platinum Royal; and the gilded Noblesse table (both pictured after the jump).

Each of the three models comes equipped with a large cue and ball drawer, triangle pocket and back-lit pockets.  The luxury in these tables can especially be seen in the ornamentation that decorates the outside of the corner pockets as well as in the inlaid diamonds on the table rails.

Pricing is set at 130,000 Euros, or approximately US $177,000.

French luxury billiards manufacturer Billards Bréton has announced that it will begin production of its new limited edition Django pool table in January 2009.  Made to commemorate legendary jazz guitarist Gipsy Django Reinhardt (1910-1953), the retro-styled pool table features cylindrical legs in brightly polished stainless steel, giving it one of the more unique looks we’ve seen in the high-end billiards table market.

Billards Bréton partnered with Buglaria-based UNIK (we laughed too) furniture company on the Django table.  While production doesn’t officially start until January, the first Django billiards table was installed in the new Monaco nightclub Moods.
