We're expecting rain and high winds here in New York all weekend so that has me thinking about what I can do that doesn't involve leaving my apartment. Other than reading and watching television, board games are a another good rainy day activity. I grew up playing backgammon but haven't played in years so I think I may have to buy myself a board. Some of them would actually look just as nice sitting out as they would being played and it looks like a few other designers appreciated that fact as well!
Geoffrey Parker makes some of the best backgammon boards including this pretty blue leather attache option.
Looks like Ivanka Trump is also a fan of backgammon.
This backgammon board by Geoffrey Parker features William Morris paper and is my absolute favorite!
This old House Beautiful cover from 1935 illustrates the long popularity of backgammon!
