good looking speaker stands

I am looking for not just functional and sturdy speaker stands but also ones that are pleasant to look at. (Not to mention: stylish - I feel that 99% of what’s sold for less than a $1000 or repulsive)
I like these
but I feel that they could be even better looking, without the metal base. Does anyone know of companies who make decent looking, perhaps custom stands?
Google  "architectural pedestal"  or interior design pedestal.

@DeKay thanks, not seeing anything I like
Those stands look like the tripod to my Cellestion telescope. 
thank you all, I like some of theses
