Five to eight inch tall chess pieces made of aluminum. Industrial finish on the light pieces. Darkened metal finish on the dark pieces. Inlaid wood with a stained finish for the board. For all intents and purposes, this chess set from Restoration Hardware is as much a statement piece for your table as it is a game. It also appears as if the board folds in half for easy storage, presumably it also holds all the pieces, but we don’t have any idea why anyone would want to hide a piece of art–let alone 32–that they paid a good amount of money for. Don’t get us wrong, it’s definitely not cheap, but like everything else from Restoration Hardware, it will probably end up being an heirloom piece.
