CRAFT >The Artist and The Game >> Alexandra Llewellyn
For the most beautifully designed backgammon and gaming boards, look no further, Alexandra Llewellyn is your girl. With clients including Alice Temperley, Elle Macpherson, Jacquetta Wheeler and Richard Branson, backgammon which holds the title as the oldest recorded board game in the world, is clearly going through a revival.
Alexandra has designed a collection of backgammon boards (a few of our favourites are below, including this Antler design above), which each includes weighted aluminium playing pieces, exquisite ALD semi-precious stone and brass bespoke playing pieces (all of which can be customised). Working with a team of master craftsmen specialising in different techniques and materials, the final outcome is a work of art to be enjoyed by generations to come.
