Obelisks come in many sizes and materials. Some obelisks are four feet and more.  These may not be for everyone, but they make a real statement in your design if you have the courage to make it!

The tapestry in this dining room is flanked by two massive obelisks. They add a stately touch of architecture, and set off the tapestry in grand style.

The designer Michael S. Smith included this fabulous obelisk by Renzo Mongiardino (circa 1950 - 1960) made of specimen marbles. It's decorative, and adds architecture to the room as well.

The classic designer, Timothy Corrigan, uses a big obelisk to add even more interest to this living room. It draws your eye to the far corner, and adds interest in an otherwise empty space.

In this bedroom, if you look beyond the bed towards  the open door you will see a tall obelisk, probably 4 - 5 feet tall. It's a terrific addition and serves as a piece of sculpture. 

If you are looking for a focal point in a room, or just some added architectural interest, a big obelisk may just do the trick.
