Chess Design

I believe a house is not a home without the right accessories. I also believe that the way we live and function in our space tells a lot about who we are as individuals. I believe that a study, home office, living room, play room or a hallway always benefits from a special nuance or detail. Such a detail would be the placement of a chess board somewhere in a corner or even right in the middle of the room, so you cannot miss it:)

If you watch a movie, I am sure you'll have the chance to see the 64 squares board in at least one scene, as a symbol for cleverness, for intelligence or to represent the fundamental dualities of night and day, good and bad, life and death etc.
Either we play it or not, love it or not, chess can be seen in many of our homes, in a shape or another. And thanks to the creative and boundless designers imagination, the squares, the pieces and the colours we know so well, could be related to our lives even further than the tournament hall.

Black and white is undeniably both classical and modern colors. And the game theme for the room is still in vogue. As an example, any room can be designed with the elements of popular and stylish .. yes stylish game - chess. Generally, any part of the interior can be done in black and white squares.

Chess floors are not the only chess-inspired design there is. Here are some ideas for chess-inspired design remodeling. Contrasting black and white can withstand many brave design solutions.
So play not only in the interior, but also with the interior!

Take a sit, you might get inspired.

Wondering if you will have nice dreams...

You don’t necessarily need to stick to black & white to get a chequerboard effect:

But there is more than the chess pattern…
Get more inspiration from chess by looking into chess piece-like furniture and decorations. They are elegant, beautiful and ornate and can easily add luxury to your home decor. While you don't need to turn your house into a chessboard you can subtly decorate your room using inspiration from chess pattern and pieces.

And of course if you're completely chess mad, you could go the whole way and have the whole house as a chequerboard, like the architecture below:

Inspired by a chess board, don't you think so?

Just don't be fooled into thinking you're doing anything new, as Vermeer's 1670 The Love Letter clearly shows:

One question, for the chess players, is whether the use of black and white squares for our interiors is creating a historical and luxurious resonance, or whether it's a bit too much to stand. Lots of squares spinning and rolling in front of our eyes - driving us mad or giving us a feeling of balance and harmony?
