Checkmate

When I think of Crate and Barrel, Classic but Boring usually comes to mind. No offense, it's just not really to my taste. However, I was happy in this case to be proven wrong. On a recent visit to the store, I came across a set of accent tables or stools inspired by chess pieces.

Even if you don't realize the reference at first, I still love their organic, playful quality. An aerial view shows that the wood is still relatively log-like, and I just love it when wooden pieces retain their imperfections. It really looks much less manufactured than I would have expected. Well done, C&B!
