Perhaps you've seen it but there's a thread from 11/8 that address your issue with the heading "12' x 14' room; $10k budget for speakers".

I agree with Rlawry that the Evolution acoustics monitor is a nice one.
If I were back in a smaller room, I think I'd go for the Northcreek Big Kat (northcreekmusic.com). Good for your room size, and has the added benefit of playing close to walls. It's a bit of a project: 2900$ for the guts (signature version), and around 1200$ for the boxes, with a few hours of assembly, but the end result is a lovely looking and sounding MTM minitower, with whatever gorgeous veneer strikes your fancy. I had the Eskas, the Big Kat's now discontinued little brother, in my main system for 5 years, and they brought me a lot of joy.
