No one could have predicted that a show about chess would capture the hearts of so many people who probably don’t know how to play chess — but that’s what makes The Queen’s Gambit such a great series.

The popular Netflix show has not only inspired people to learn the game, but also inspired this hotel to give itself a Queen’s Gambit makeover.

The 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington, KY, which is also the home of the protagonist in the show, just unveiled a room inspired by the show’s mid-century modern aesthetic. The hotel describes the Harmon Room as “a retro time capsule of American mid-century modern design inspired by the Lexington-based Netflix series.”

The design was the brainchild of local designer Isabel Ladd, Mid-Century Design League of Lexington founder Lucy Jones, and Alex K. Mason of Ferrick Mason Inc., and also features massive chess pieces suspended from the ceiling.

There’s also a stocked bar cart, a gold peacock art piece hanging over the bed, rare books, an itinerary of places to visit in the city inspired by the show, and of course, a chess set.
