Get the style: The Queen’s Gambit

Take interior inspiration for your office from the biggest show on Netflix.

The Queen's Gambit, a series about a 1960s female chess prodigy, is the most-watched limited series in Netflix history, with 62 million viewers in its first four weeks of release.

As furniture experts, the extravagant set design of The Queen’s Gambit really caught our eye.

Bold, floor to ceiling looks, heavy patterns and clashing colours, on paper it sounds too elaborate to work, but these over the top details are cleverly harmonised throughout for an aesthetic that delights the senses. While a juxtaposition of both bohemian and traditional styles captures an underlying struggle between young ideals and old-fashioned ways that defined the 60s era.

Soft, feminine details against a backdrop of moody industrialism, perfectly represent the protagonist’s struggle in the male-dominated world of chess.
