LOOK: Hotel room design inspired by ‘The Queen’s Gambit’

A boutique hotel has created a room based on the popular limited series “The Queen’s Gambit,” giving its guests the chance to spend a night in “true Beth Harmon style.”

The hotel chain set up the 1960s-style room in its branch in Lexington, Kentucky, in the United States, where the show was set.

The company revealed the room’s interior on its Facebook page yesterday, Jan. 6. It features “mid-century modern furniture” with green accents and a blue-green carpet floor.

Designers also installed a “larger-than-life overhead chessboard” inspired by Harmon’s visions in the series to help guests channel their inner chess prodigy. Along with the installation, the room’s bold wallpaper consists of black and white knight chess pieces as well.

It premiered on Netflix last October and features Anya Taylor-Joy as the story’s protagonist.  /ra
