THE CURTAINS IN QUEEN’S GAMBIT
The retro interior as seen in Queen’s Gambit has several elements that create its realistic effect. Set in the 1950s-1960s, the film boasts of its amazing actors and set design.
One component is the Queen’s Gambit curtains. Be it in floral print, plaid/checkered, or just simply plain, they sometimes do not match but work well together.
Creating a set design doesn’t only entail the appearance but at times adding reason to why a certain piece of furniture or accessory was strategically placed in an area. Like the curtains on the archway from the foyer to the living room may symbolize the frustrations of Mrs. Wheatley.
