Personalisation Notes

If any of my boards could be considered a classic, it is this one. Crafted from walnut and sycamore, two of my favourite woods, the richness and warmth of the geometric pattern is a beautiful backdrop to a game of backgammon.

luxury personified

Inspired by the zebra-like patterning on the feathers of a Lady Amherst pheasant, our Abstract Walnut board showcases a hypnotic, abstract design, based on an original hand drawing by Alexandra. With echoes of the design codes of the Art Deco era, the sleek, geometric playing surface is beautifully rendered in sumptuous wood marquetry.

more than meets the eye

Alexandra’s marquetry artist selects the woods according to their different patterns and grains and the richness of their colour, choosing only those that will add warmth and texture to the design. The directions of the grain in the walnut are perfectly aligned upon the board, adding another level of complexity and beauty to the design.

handcrafted for a lifetime of play

An artist skilled in the ancient craft of marquetry precision cuts the sustainable woods into hundreds of miniature pieces before individually assembling them by hand upon the board. With its delicate colouring and fine grain, sleek sycamore triangles are inlaid into the design – the perfect counterpoint to the warm tones of the walnut.

Elevate your game

Designed to enhance your game of backgammon, semi-precious playing pieces are a luxurious addition to our Signature backgammon sets. Alexandra recommends turquoise and tiger’s eye playing pieces to complement her Abstract Walnut backgammon board, with personalisation of the pieces available.
