Checkmate! Hermès S/S 2012 Chess & Chair Set


What better way to while away an idyllic weekend afternoon than a spirited game of English chess with your best bud? For the ultimate board game experience, get this handsome chess set from Hermès’ Spring-Summer 2012 collection.

Giant-sized for maximum fun, the lovely rosewood and mahogany hand-sculpted pieces are laid out on a 95cm board in the most luscious and decadent etoupe Clemence taurillon leather: the entire setpiece will look equally good in your reading room when not in use.

While we're at it, why not purchase the Sellier Chair, also from S/S 2012, for your friendly opponent to sit in while contemplating his next move? In saddle-stitched Everlisse cowhide, these comfy seats come in multiple color and material combos - the orange leather and chocolate brown version (above) is classic Hermès, while the canvas option with lemon yellow arm-rests (below) speaks of summer siestas and fizzy, fruity cocktails.
