To dress one’s home beautifully is synonymous with fashion. By putting on your most glamorous clothes, a game of backgammon played on this handcrafted wood marquetry board is guaranteed to be a real occasion.
THE BUTTERFLY TAKES FLIGHT
Rendered in contrasting sycamore and walnut burr woods, the perfectly symmetrical wings of a Malayan tree nymph butterfly spread across the entire board. The marquetry artist recreates the “trompe l’oeil” effect in Alexandra’s design using the hot sand shading technique, scorching the woods to bring a beautiful sense of three-dimensionality and lifelike volume to the butterfly’s wings.
