Dear Friends,
We continue to work through the various changes that the global pandemic has brought about, not least the very real impact that it has had on elements of our specialist supply chains. Our online store and workshop have remained fully operational and we are dispatching orders with the minimum of delay. Our customer service team continue to be accessible on email and by telephone and are ready to answer your queries and assist in any purchases. For any orders that may be affected by a longer than normal delivery time you will be emailed immediately that we become aware and given a timeframe based on the latest information to which we have access.
We hope life can start to return to a more ‘business as usual’ state very soon and in the meantime we thank you for your custom and interest in Purling.

Purling’s goal is to celebrate art and playfulness through the design and craftsmanship of our luxury games. We have collaborated with over 30 contemporary artists and been featured in prestigious magazines including Forbes, FT How To Spend It and Robb Report. Our luxury games were selected as a ‘future trend’ by Maison & Objet Paris in September 2016 – Europe’s most prestigious interior design exhibition. The World Chess Hall of Fame art museum in St. Louis MO USA exhibited over 20 of our hand-painted Art Chess sets in their Purling London solo show ‘Painted Pieces’ from April – September 2018 including works by Sophie Matisse, Mr Doodle, Thierry Noir and Tom Hackney. The customers of our unique Chess, Checkers, and Darts include Harrods Knightsbridge and art collectors, games players and modern design enthusiasts in five continents. We hope you enjoy browsing our website and playing our luxury games! Don’t hesitate to ask us any queries via our contact form or by calling our studio on +44 (0)20 3290 6201.
