Foosball tables may be popular in pubs around the planet – but they’re not always the most attractive additions to a home environment. Until now.
French foosball table brand Debuchy by Toulet, a joint venture between local footballer Mathieu Debuchy and La Maison Toulet, which has been making pool tables since 1857, has released a range of stylish tables, including one by Brussels-based designer Alain Gilles, called the Pure.
According to Dezeen, Gilles sought to create a “less masculine container” for table football, so that the game “doesn’t have to be hidden in the basement”. It features wooden trim on the top and a curved shell to hide the mechanics. Even the model ‘players’ are of simplified form.
Handles are finished in chrome, and the wooden covering – chosen to add warmth, as well as to reference the materials used in traditional foosball tables – also incorporates abacus-style scoring, reports Dezeen.
The stylish tables from Debuchy by Toulet can be custom design by mixing and matching body colour, pitch shade and the style of the wooden trim. The Pure, for example, comes with black, blue, natural wood trim, with white, black or other coloured body.
The Pure (above) is priced at €6690, while the Blackball (below) will set you back €17,210.
