oomph_smallLet’s face it, you’ve got game. And so does Oomph, the Connecticut-based furniture maker whose colorful casegoods are quickly becoming a designer favorite. The company’s new chess table boasts a tournament-size reproduction of the set used during the “Match of the Century” when 1972 world chess champion Bobby Fischer spanked Russia’s Boris Spassky. European-trained artisans construct each table from plantation-grown poplar, so no matter which of Oomph’s 16 high-lacquer shades you choose (this one is “Fireworks”), the result will be green. Oh, and for mere mortals who’ve never caressed a hand-carved king or queen, they make an equally stylish backgammon table. $3,850, oomphonline.com
