Why we love Purling London

Read

Purling London is a British brand specialised in designing and manufacturing luxury chess sets and other classic games like backgammon, among others.

The acclaimed, contemporary Chess, Backgammon and Checkers contrast traditional, by-hand-manufacturing against vivid colour, abstract art and theatrical illumination. The silver-gilded playing cards update the English pattern with street art influences, hidden logos and hot-pink hearts. Purling London games are classic with a British twist.

The inspiration of the brand is to revitalise time-honoured games, mixing established forms with contemporary art and design influences. The aim of the founder, Simon Purling, was to create new physical game experiences through the combination of tactile, heavily-weighted, hand-carved game pieces with illuminated ‘Dark’ board technology. The aspiration is to bring back chess and classic games as a fashionable and innovative interior design accessories; symbolising intelligence, history and luxury.

We love Purling London products and the availability of a bespoke service which allows customers to fully personalise chess and backgammon in order to match their home interiors or simply to satisfy special requests. A real touch of luxury!
