HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Wood chess set manufacturer, The House of Staunton, shares insights about their luxury chess boards and pieces.

The House of Staunton offers several luxury wooden chess boards and pieces. Their luxury line connects true chess enthusiasts to chess boards and pieces that can be passed on from generation to generation as beautiful heirlooms or displayed as stylish home décor.

“The House of Staunton has a long history of creating high-quality chess boards and pieces,” said Shawn Sullivan, Managing Director at The House of Staunton. “Our products are made from luxury materials like ebony, blood rosewood, amboyna burl, and 40,000-year-old Wooly Mammoth Ivory, and they’ve been featured in several movies and TV shows.”

The Original 1849 Staunton Series Luxury Chess Pieces made from antique boxwood may be the ultimate example of luxury chess pieces.

Players enjoy beauty and functionality with these pieces as they were created by master craftsmen to reflect true beauty but designed to withstand regular play. The Original 1849 Staunton Series Luxury Chess Pieces are also made from natural boxwood and cocobolo.

But, all of the luxury chess boards offered by The House of Staunton reflect their dedication to superior quality.
