Sheltering at home, and in particular, game night, just got a little more attractive now that Aerin Lauder, a designer, tastemaker, working mom, and distinct voice in the world of home décor, has given old favorites like backgammon, chess, Jenga and more a modern makeover.
SHAGREEN TIC TAC TOE SET, $995
wood inlay base made from walnut and beechwood, with embossed cream shagreen pieces edged in brass
The founder of the luxury lifestyle brand AERIN, Lauder has taken the concept of beauty (which the Estée Lauder company, co-founded by Aerin's grandmother, is famous for) and translated it into everyday living. "Games have always been a focal point of entertaining at home and are an easy way to bring generations together," she says. The AERIN collection of luxury games includes timeless pieces - re-imagined in elegant materials such as burlwood and embossed shagreen - an elevated, modern-day sensibility. And even when playtime is over, they bring their A-game to your interiors by doubling as stunning coffee table accessories.
Aerin’s elegant, effortless aesthetic is a reflection of her unique upbringing. “Beauty is my heritage, but home and accessories are my passion," she says.
