PURLING LONDON ART CHESS sets have been exhibited at Christie’s, Saatchi Gallery and the World Chess Hall of Fame. Many of these 1 of 1, hand-painted works have been the choice of royalty, renowned interior designers, art collectors and chess Grandmasters. Purling has collaborated with over thirty artists, including Sophie Matisse, Mr. Doodle and Thierry Noir. Every Art Chess set is hand-finished in London, England and can be made bespoke to your wishes.
This chess set by Nette Robinson is inspired by the colour palette of some of the beautiful interior designs being show-cased by contemporary designers of today. Featuring a stunning colour palette with metallic copper and peacock blue. As always, playability is of paramount importance, so there is clear differentiation between the two opposing sides. The Black side is painted with a rich metallic copper combined with a dark pearlised chocolate. The opposing side is a gorgeous pearlised turquoise with copper accents.
The unique chess board incorporates a simple but striking design using stripes of pearlised white, turquoise, chocolate and copper on the border. These stripes echo the lines on the playing area, which highlight the key parts of the chess board (Kingside and the Queenside, the long diagonals, crossing the centre and the demarcation between the territory of the Black & White armies.) This set would suit both modern and classic interiors.
