Only Obelisks specializes in decorative obelisks. Obelisks enhance any décor, from modern to classic. Take a look at our Obelisk Decorating blog for more ideas. Our obelisks range from modern to vintage to antique, and in a variety of styles (neoclassical, modern, chinoiserie…), materials (marble, metal, brass, malachite, lapis lazuli, rock crystal…) and sizes.

Only Obelisks came about as a result of our passion for obelisks, and a fascination with their variety and versatility in décor. We believe that by specializing in only obelisks we can bring you the best selection. We are always on the look out for special sources, including estates and auctions. We choose obelisks that we find interesting and often unique.

The antiques are particularly special. We love the 19th century and earlier French and Italian Grand Tour ‘souvenirs’, and the 19th century English Ashford marble inlaid obelisks, with their wonderful pietra dura technique.

The vintage obelisks have tremendous character, and the marble and brass often develop a wonderful patina over time that adds to their uniqueness.

Many decorators create groupings of obelisks in their interior design schemes, and many people find them fun to collect.

We have a generous return policy, allowing you to try out your purchase in your décor, and return it to us for any reason in the condition received. We will gladly provide additional photos, and are happy to answer any questions by email or by phone.
