York Street Studio Debuts a Handcrafted Backgammon Set
York Street Studio, a Connecticut design company that specializes in luxury home decor, has introduced its first handcrafted backgammon set (starting at $1,800). Founded in Brooklyn in 1988, York Street Studio originally specialized in designing bespoke furniture for clients but has since expanded into home accessories and decorative hardware. Though the materials of company’s new 28-inch backgammon set can be customized to suit the customer’s preferences, the standard interior is made with fine-grained calf leather that allows the oak game pieces to slide smoothly across it. The board’s edging can be made with steel and secured with brass screws.
