THE CHESS LIFESTYLE
I was always drawn to ways to improve my mind and well-being and when I met my husband the game of chess became our way to connect and learn about each other. For me, it’s creating moments that surround the game that I really love. We cultivated an entire lifestyle around the game that were incorporated into the daily occasions in our lives: an afternoon poolside with good friends, a day out sailing with a picnic, or bar hopping – one drink, one game, next spot, repeat. I started using the culinary skills I learned while living in Paris to craft delicious foods we could enjoy with one hand while moving pieces with the other. What’s better than combining a refreshing cocktail, exquisite food, mind stimulation, and great company?
As an art history major, I see art in everything I love. Chess sets should be stunning sculptures, which is why ours embody beauty, elegance, luxury, and FUN. I look forward to sharing my passion so that others can join me in pursuit of mindful fun and delight in the pleasures of life!
