Chess and backgammon table

Designed to rotate to become either a chess or backgammon table, this table has a polychromatic effect that makes for a dramatic piece of furniture. The border is made from very hard Egyptian porphyry, a stone that is rare and hard to work; amongst lapis-lazuli, amethyst, jaspers and mounted on a walnut and burr base.
