Specimen marble obelisks come in all kinds of combinations, but it's the striped ones that I love for their graphic, modern look.
Designer: Timothy Corrigan
I like this whole grouping of obelisks, but it's great center piece is the tall black and white striped obelisk. It grabs your attention. There is also a pair achoring either end in a pale brown and white stripe.
Designer: Jaime Parlade
In this Madrid apartment, the designer Jaime Parlade masterfully echos the striped column in the painting with a striped obelisk on the coffee table.
Designer: Charlotte Moss
To decorate this bookcase, Charlotte Moss included a pair of multicolored striped obelisks. I love they way they almost pick up the colors in the book bindings on the shelves below.
In this cozy library cum dining room the designer Richard Keith Langham created a balanced design on the mantel using one of a pair of striped marble obelisks on either end. He next used some decorative round marble globes, and then groups three ceramics in the center. A lovely classic design.
In my own home, a tall multicolored striped marble obelisk works perfectly with a shorter black and white striped marble obelisk.
