Our concept for luxury chess, games & gifts

Purling London specialises in designing luxury chess sets, classic games and gifts. Our critically acclaimed, contemporary Chess, Backgammon and Checkers contrast traditional, by-hand-manufacturing against vivid colour, abstract art and theatrical illumination. Our silver-gilded Playing Cards update the English pattern with street art influences, hidden logos and hot-pink hearts. Purling London games are classic with a British twist.

My goal is to revitalise time-honoured games, mixing established forms with contemporary art and design influences. I aim to create new physical game experiences – such as playing at night – through the combination of tactile, heavily-weighted, hand-carved game pieces with our illuminated ‘Dark’ board technology. I aspire to bring back chess and classic games as a fashionable and innovative interior design accessories; symbolising intelligence, history and luxury.”
