Midnight Marquetry Backgammon Set

£13,500

Our Midnight Marquetry backgammon set captures the sense of scale, vast skies and sweeping landscapes of America’s legendary sun-drenched beaches in Miami and LA after dark, with the palm trees – so evocative of America’s sunshine coast – illuminated by mother-of-pearl stars that twinkle in the light.

Personalisation Notes

I worked with my marquetry artist to choose woods that perfectly mimic the colours and textures found in nature, which brings a beautiful depth to my Midnight backgammon set. The effect is exquisite, with the different grains of the woods describing the movement of the waves and the lushness of the palm trees.

THE ART OF BACKGAMMON

Playing on our Midnight Marquetry backgammon board is always an occasion, with the bright blue feathers of a parrot and the tropical pink of a flamingo beautifully translated in different sustainable woods. Illuminating the scene, each of the mother-of-pearl stars has been individually inlaid by hand by a marquetry artist.

From dusk till dawn

Alexandra has created a trio of modern heirlooms that channel the character and colours of her favourite sunshine cities in the US. This Midnight wood marquetry backgammon set brings a tactile, handcrafted beauty to the collection, which also includes two photographic backgammon sets with strong vintage vibes.

A LUXURIOUS EXPERIENCE

Presented with semi-precious playing pieces, encased in gunmetal brass, every little detail of the Midnight Marquetry board has been carefully considered to enhance your playing experience, including the semi-precious malachite and tiger’s eye playing pieces, which perfectly complement the colours on the board and are a pleasure to play with.
