In the 17th century, the billiards gradually became popular and evolved into a pure noble entertainment. Only the balls made by brass and wood or ivory could make the sport unreachable for the common class. The popularity and fierce progress of billiards, especially the sport of snooker, was due to a series of revolutionary reforms in billiards made by a carpenter named John Thurston that made the sport really walk into the world of the masses.
In the 18th century, British hereditary peerage, Reese Kimbrel, was a noble-hearted man with a remarkable artistic talent. The billiards was the exclusive gentleman sport of British nobilities at that time. He was no exception. He was very fond of playing billiards while he hated the monotonous, stodgy billiard tables. Therefore, he designed a unique billiard table full of artistic beauty. British nobilities were shocked. Everyone was proud of getting a billiard table designed by Kimbrel.
To commemorate the extraordinary artistic attainment and unique design philosophy of Reese Kimbrel, the later generations introduced the high-end private custom billiard tables with his surname, Kimbrel, as a brand.
In 2017, Kimbrel officially entered into China, with Nine-ball Queen Liu Shasha as the brand spokesperson, hoping to incorporate noble art and gentleman sport into the mysterious and ancient oriental territory.
KIMBREL is a high-end customized brand of billiards. The first challenge faced by many designers is how to recreate based on the long-standing but inflexible sport of billiards. Up to this day, billiard table is still a stage for carpenters to innovate. Time stands still when it comes to the design of billiard table. The classic design elements have been chosen to combine with modern style, creating a series of artistic billiard tables
The CRYSTAL series luxury glass billiard table, as one of KIMBREL’s brands, embodies the noble and exclusive temperament of the sport since its release.
Brand new fine table of steel structure and glass decorative panel is the outcome of repeatedly considering design drawings. The entire table is made of custom-made high-transparent silicone molecular material (a custom-made glass), which is a new type of modern high-end materials with little iron content widely used in various high-end products. Technically, the 10mm thick high-grade stainless steel is used to go through the mechanical process of drawing and nano-coating. Then, in addition to the best plastic trimming used in the game, both an incredible appearance and professional hitting experience of the game are presented. It’s safe to say that such a bold design in the history of billiard is unprecedented.
