Ferrer offers luxury and beauty in some of the most eye-catching chess sets and accessories on the market. The company has been serving players since the 1950s and continues to impress with high quality items that are both unique and practical. Ferrer is headquartered 50 km outside of Barcelona. It was founded by husband and wife team Juan Ferrer and Teresa Mercader. Today the founder’s daughter Joan serves as manager.
The company started with a relatively narrow focus. It honed in on wood veneer services. During the mid-1960s, Ferrer began its first foray into the realm of chess board building. It was a smart move for the company, which is made obvious by the impressive catalog currently offered.
The official Ferrer website boasts a complete list of approximately 30 boards, each with its own distinct personality. Classic wood grain models are offered in a variety of prices. An economic printed version recreates the depth and allure of true mahogany without the lofty price tag. Alternative printed styles are also available in walnut.
Ferrer also breaks into new, exciting ground with vibrant chess boards that feature unique colors. The blue De Luxe board includes vibrant hues with a glossy finish and texture that is reminiscent of flowing water. The same style is also available in grey, green, brown, black, wenge and fiery red. Players who prefer something in the middle can look to Ferrer’s standard game boards.
Ferrer takes things a step further by offering a unique custom service to customers. The company’s “Made to Measure” offerings lets customers provide specific requirements for a one-of-a-kind chess board. This makes for almost limitless possibilities when customizing your collection, provided you are willing to pay for the extra service. Most players will find that Ferrer’s selection is diverse enough to satisfy even the most discerning enthusiasts.
