While the world is not black and white, they are the theme colours of chess. This excuisite board called Asturias presents them literally. The dark material is black-dyed Italian poplar, while lightened erable brings with it a perfect contrast.
This contemporary chess board carries an ultra-matt finish which makes it a perfect choice if you want your board to have a non-reflecting, natural wood look. We often recommend the Asturias to serious, tournament-level chess players. It is also a favorite of many interior decorators, fitting perfectly in a variety of spaces, colours and furniture.
This beautiful, matt-finished chess board is a match to all our club-size luxury pieces. The lacquered veneer board combines durability and style without being uncomfortably heavy. We especially recommend pairing this Spanish chess board with reddish chessmen made of padauk. A very interesting option is matching it with the 1849 Staunton in Boxwood / Padauk, but any other club-size set will also do. Most players like to choose a non-lacquered (polished) set to match the matt finish of the board.
