A pleasure both to play and observe, Dark Chess sets are a striking showpiece for any modern interior.

We are ready to create your perfect, unique BESPOKE DARK CHESS set. Choose any combination of lacquer colours for the chess board frame and chess pieces to match your interior design, company’s branding or team’s jersey.
