Play the Vertical Chess Set in an Unusual Position

Although chess is normally played sitting down in a horizontal position, the Vertical Chess Set is the exact opposite.

The Vertical Chess Set is a wall-mounted board that puts the strategy board in the upright position. You can actually play on the design, as it isn't simply for show. The pieces are supported by transparent acrylic shelves. The overall design has a very natural look to it due to its wooden material. The board itself is constructed from a cherry veneer, while the black pieces are made from rosewood and the white players from boxwood.
