Italian furniture designer Giorgio Bonaguro, who is a member of the design team of Icon furniture in Verona Italy, has designed this splendid collection of Chess Stools for Icons furniture. He has rendered a playful appearance to the wooden stools that will add a touch of elegance as well as fun wherever placed. Made out of solid scented cedar wood, one of these stools is crafted into a geometric shape of the head of the bishop in the game of chess also called as Alfiere in Italian tongue. The other one is given a more aristocratic and imposing shape of the queen called as Regina while the third one is carved in a round and simple shape of pawn or Pedone.
Out of all three from the family, the Alfiere stool features a large diagonal cut that can be used to keep magazines in place. All of the stools are crafted by utilizing the semi-artisan techniques and processes that embellish the values and finishes of the furniture units.
