Kelly Wearstler’s Dichotomy Chess Set
Rock 'n' roll attitude meets chic design
Mixed metals, stark hues, and intriguing forms: These three ingredients are essential to a Kelly Wearstler design. The Dichotomy Chess Set is no exception: its rock 'n' roll attitude and chic design go hand in hand with the global home décor mogul's anything-but-ordinary aesthetic.
A hand-sculpted marble board sets the stage for 32 pieces in familiar objet d'art shapes found throughout Wearstler's collections—from pouty pawns to statuesque knights—each made of either 22-carat-gold- or gunmetal-plated bronze. With a fur-lined leather carrying bag and diamond-studded kings and queens, Wearstler's artistic take on a classic game makes even a stalemate riveting. $17,000; kellywearstler.com
