Chess boards and chess pieces have become incredibly sophisticated, and are now not only a huge collectible for fans, but are increasingly becoming a key part of the decor of many homes.
Some of the interesting themes of the pieces are connected to other trends such as movies and history - or lifestyles. Some examples include Star Wars, Alien (the movie), Gothic, Celtic, civil war, marijuana, and even Armageddon, as in the last days of mankind.
The outdoors are also part of the chess-themed mix, as huge chess boards are placed for conversation pieces, games, and part of the landscaping look.
A number of chess boards are also being developed with bases underneath which can be pulled out and hold objects of your choice, and they look good too.
