Isometric View Of Entire Scene

As you can see, in this particular scene, I pay little attention to objects that are not in view of the camera.

Note: The object acting as the floor is just a copy of the back wall. Also I placed a plane above the floor acting as the face of a billiards table. The plane is not in view of the camera but it is necessary for light bounces and color bleeding.
