You can get a chess set that has little succulent planters for the chess pieces! Gah! I’m in love.
In high school, I was in the Chess Club. Do I know how to play chess? Nope. Did I know how to play chess then? Nope. I wanted to learn, but the rules just never stuck in my brain.
That does NOT stop me from having a decorative chess set in my house. Of course, that COULD have to do with the fact that my husband is a giant nerd. Not that that’s a bad thing — I married him, didn’t I?
I DO love succulents. They are more my speed than an impossible-to-learn game of chess! And, The are freaking adorable, so there’s that.
I would really be down to get THIS Succulent Chess Set. It’s not only beautiful, it’s quirky and unique!
It gives me an excuse to have even MORE succulent plants around the house, and the hubster can’t complain, because I’ll say it’s HIS chess set. Ha!
The design of this set is Bauhaus Style Chess. That was a movement from the 1920’s that was über popular. It has to do with clean lines, and squares, rectangles, and spheres. You’ll see that the succulent chess set resembles this Bauhaus style.
Now, the set comes with the 3D printed chess pieces — but, it’s up to YOU to supply the plants. You can use a little potting soil in each piece, and then plant baby succulent seeds, or maybe some fresh herbs — something that can distinguish each piece would be good.
The board is a 4-piece set, and the size when all 4 pieces are put together is 260mm by 260mm. For those of us who have NO IDEA how big those metric numbers are, that’s just over a 10-inch square.
So, to recap, you are getting 16 black chess pieces, 16 white chess pieces, and the 4-piece board all for 50 bucks!! AND, there’s FREE shipping!
This chess set is shipped from the United Kingdom, so take that into consideration if you need it in a specific time frame. It will take a just a little longer to get to you. They will SHIP it in 3-5 days — but I have no idea how long it takes a package to get here from the UK.
You can get your OWN Succulent Bauhaus Chess Set from Redrook3D on Etsy.
If you are looking for succulent plants to put in these little chess pieces, look no further than Etsy. You can get them in sets of 12 from Etsy. They are so stinkin’ cute!!
