ALEXAN­DRA LLEWELLYN PEA­COCK BACKGAM­MON SET

Australian T3 - - VICES -

In this day and age, your av­er­age board game faces an up­hill strug­gle ap­peal­ing to friends and fam­ily hooked on con­sole ti­tles such as God OfWar or FarCry5. But what we have here is not your av­er­age board game. This is one of the world’s old­est pas­times, reimag­ined by Alexan­dra Llewellyn, a Lon­don-based de­signer whose wildly cre­ative backgam­mon sets have caught the at­ten­tion of every­one from Elle Macpher­son to Sir Richard Bran­son. With its san­tos rose­wood cas­ing, hand-painted pea­cock feather mo­tifs, or­nate brass hinges and an­tique gold and black play­ing pieces, it’s got ‘heir­loom’ writ­ten all over it.
