Company Profile: 


Boston Billiard Emporium


Boston Billiard Emporium specializes in restoring and selling antique tables including Brunswick and brands that originated in Boston such as the J.E. Came Company.

These billiard tables combine history with incredible artistry in their ornate carving and detailed marquetry and the joy of playing the game on well-constructed tables that have lasted for more than 100 years. There are also some wonderful antique accessories – such as cue racks, lighting and one of the finest collections of antique cue sticks in America – on display at the showroom in Somerville. Spend some time with owner Steve Kelly who has an encyclopedic knowledge of billiard tables as well as unbridled enthusiasm for the subject.

Kelly works with many architects and interior designers to create game rooms that showcase Boston Billiard Emporium’s magnificent tables and accessories. They have a complete woodshop where they can create millwork, accessories and furniture to match the tables they sell.

In addition to antique tables, Boston Billiard Emporium sells antique reproductions and will make custom tables using any species of wood desired. Boston Billiard Emporium searches across the United States to find antique billiard tables, and then delivers them nationwide. Boston Billiard Emporium is keeping the tradition of fine billiard tables alive in the Boston area.
