Official Staunton is a family-owned and operated business, founded by Carmelo Miceli in 2001. Carmelo's love for chess and his passion for quality craftsmanship led him to establish the company, which quickly gained a reputation for producing some of the finest chess sets in the world.

Introduced to the game of chess at a young age. He quickly became enamoured with the game, and as he grew older, he began to appreciate the beauty of the pieces themselves. However, he was frustrated with the lack of high-quality chess sets available on the market, and so he decided to create his own company offering quality affordable chess sets. 

Today, Official Staunton continues to be a family-run business, with Carmelo's daughter, Lisa, taking over the reins pending his retirement. Lisa shares her father's passion for quality and craftsmanship, and under her leadership, the company continues to thrive, producing beautiful, high-quality chess sets that are treasured by players and collectors around the world.

At Official Staunton, we are committed to upholding the legacy and commitment to quality and craftsmanship. We take great pride in our work, and we are dedicated to providing our customers with the very best chess sets and accessories available. Whether you are a serious player or a collector, we have a set that will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
