Brass obelisks

When I think of obelisks I most often conjure a marble, stone or rock crystal. But brass is not to be overlooked and has a handsome sort of appeal. I think library or study, or a masculine environment.

The designer, Grant Gibson, dresses up a Biedermeier dresser with a pair of brass obelisks. The article was about tips for decorating a rental. It's all about the details and the objects that move with you! Obelisks will practically fit in your suitcase.

A shiny pair of brass obelisks along with some stacked books decorate this interesting little table.

Brass can add a shine that attracts the eye, or antique ones develop a wonderful patina that gives them even more interest.

Entryway obelisks

What a great way to welcome your guests! The entryway sets the tone for the visit and obelisks will set the style.

Even a small entryway is enhanced by a console table with a tableau of your favorite pieces - including an obelisk!

In her Moroccan house, Paloma Picasso used a sleek table with some classic objects (and a polar bear!), including a single obelisk.

Fun tableau with a single, simple crystal obelisk in the entry of the NY rental of Jessika Goranson. What a great way to make a rental your own!

Whatever your style, adding an obelisk will always work and enhance the entry tableau.
