For punctuality, responsiveness, quality, value, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nathan and his team twice, both experiences have been great! They have amazing ideas, and really made our new house feel like a home. My hats off to Nathan and the whole team.
Nathan and team completely transformed our dark and outdated basement into a space that has now become the favorite to entertain family and friends. He listened to all of our ideas and wishes, and got to know our family and lifestyle. He then designed a space that is even better than we could have imagined!
We are so happy with our experience with Nathan and Obelisk that we have already started another remodel project with them for the upstairs. Can’t wait to see the next transformation!
Nathan is absolutely fantastic to work with! Not only did he provide great designs, he made us feel comfortable enough to be honest in our opinions.
We would highly recommend Nathan Taylor and Obelisk Home for any interior design needs. We hired Nathan and his team for guidance and the interior design of our new custom home. His knowledge, expertise, and vision helped us achieve the house of our dreams. He advised us on floor layouts and most of the interior selections including wall, trim and cabinet paint colors; wood and door stains; tile; carpet; solid surface; lighting; pretty much everything! There were many custom features that he designed for us, which include the fireplace, built-in shelving and window seats, upstairs and downstairs bars, as well as exterior stone, stucco and tile selections and colors. Nathan also helped us choose furniture and rugs for our living area, and we are in the process of finishing the great room. Nathan has impeccable style, and we couldn’t be happier with how beautiful the house has turned out! Nathan and his team provided first class customer service throughout the entire project.
Nathan and his staff designed our whole house remodel, and have been instrumental in seeing that every last detail is completed to perfection. Something that appealed to us was when Nathan asked us to send him several pictures/ideas of what we liked, and he used those to design and create our dream remodel–with our taste and preferences very much in mind. His insight into our sense of style, and his ability to take that style and make it a reality (that far exceeded anything we had envisioned) is amazing. Nathan’s excellent reputation and relationship with various contractors/vendors has helped numerous times during our remodel. His customer service and availability is second to none, and his sense of style is divine. If you are looking for a designer who will provide you with a unique, beautiful product, and will turn your vision into reality, Nathan and Obelisk Home are perfect for you.
Hired Nathan to help with a remodel of a 1950’s bathroom. What he suggested was fantastic! As a matter of fact I hired Nathan and his firm to redo my entire house. Nathan has this innate sense of what will look amazing once he sees the area and understands the project. He managed to incorporate things that I owned along with new things, which gave it a sense of being more personal. His knowledge and professionalism are top notch!
I worked with Colby and Toni from the Obelisk Home design team to update my master bathroom. Best decision ever! Referring to Colby and Toni as truly gifted interior designers does not come close to describing their talent. They are innately and exceptionally skilled in design. In addition, they truly listened to my wants and needs. The end result was better than I ever could have imagined. Just as important to me, Colby and Toni are wonderful human beings, fun, creative, compassionate, always positive, and just a joy to work with! I could not recommend them any higher!
I just moved into my new house & wanted to put my personal stamp on it.. once I met with Nathan he immediately understood what I wanted to accomplish in my new surroundings. Nathan kept some very sentimental pieces & mixed with new furnishings that complimented my lifestyle! The completed project turned out amazing & I couldn’t be more pleased with the final outcome!
This was a challenge to make an 80’s condo into our dream home. Our hobbies of cooking and art were our main focus, but how to blend the space into a warm contemporary elegant space was the challenge we gave Nathan. He was certainly up to the task, and we were not living in town so his staff took care of every little detail of this total remodel.
I cannot give Nathan and the entire Obelisk team enough stars! The attention to detail throughout our kitchen remodel was remarkable. The best thing is the care he took getting to know us so that our home not only looks amazing but functions for the way we actually live. Whether it be sentimental pieces we wanted to incorporate or making sure the space works for our children and pets, no detail was too small. Looking back on the basic idea of what we wanted our kitchen to become, the reality of what Nathan created is far beyond our imaginations. The new kitchen and living area we created functions perfectly and really is a dream kitchen for us.
He is patient and kind and the entire team has continued to advocate for us even after the work completed to ensure any issues that arise are cared for, sometimes even before we knew there was an issue! If you are wondering if you should hire a designer to help with your project, the answer if yes. If you’re wondering what designer to hire, the answer is Nathan Taylor and team!
An awesome experience from the first day of drawings to the finished product. Unique design while letting my home represent who I am. Nathan was always available, listened to my preferences while encouraging me to create a space that was special. Great team, it was like working with old friends.
Stunningly successful. I can’t think of a better way to summarize the project. From design to implementation, Nathan’s conscientious attention to detail yielded the kitchen and bedroom of our dreams. He worked hard to identify what mattered to us, what we loved, what we were indifferent to. And from that, he extracted a vision we could not have pictured, and then helped us see it through to fruition.
I have been describing the results to friends as, “Nathan is turning on the lights in our home.” He is taking the dark corners that we walked past and ignored and transforming them into beautiful statements of who we are, places we now live in and enjoy every day.
Our new home was beautifully decorated by Nathan. We enjoyed working with him and his staff. Nathan has a great sense of style and color and proved it in our home. He deserves the highest recommendation!
Nathan Taylor is a consummate professional. We are a two professional household who built our dream home on our farm after decades of preparation and planning. Furnishing, appointing and decorating our space to match our dreams might have been a time consuming and daunting task for us, but Nathan made it fun and fulfilling. Nathan and the Obelisk team’s work is beautiful but functional, cosmopolitan but grounded in tradition, eclectic but cohesive. He created for us a home that is totally and uniquely “ours” honoring our likes, interests and heirlooms, yet possessing a style, look and utility we couldn’t have dreamed of. He has an uncanny ability to create magazine cover looks that still represent the uniqueness of the home owners in every room.
We have worked with Nathan and his team over the past year and a half as we completely renovated and added on to a 1950’s ranch home. Nathan has an impeccable eye for design, and he and his team provide top notch service. I have been particularly impressed with their ability to tailor their recommendations to us based upon our particular needs, wants, and personalities. I would recommend Nathan highly and without reservation.
J. and Nathan are both such fantastic designers. This is what they were born to do. They totally respected my taste and time frame and I plan to hire them again very soon. I highly recommend Obelisk Home for any interior design or remodel project.
Nathan’s design choices were spot on. He really tries to discern who his client is, what they want and then applies his gifted design eye.
Tom’s an accountant and I’m a nurse. We know what we like – if you show us something we can say we love it or we hate it. But designing a whole interior? That’s not our forte. Our home is in Madison, WI and I didn’t think that we could actually work with Nathan remotely. I would have thought that would be impossible, but it was actually very easy.
Nathan and his team were amazing! They brought brilliant ideas for all facets of our house and furnishings while listening to our wants.
Nathan is an artist with excellent taste, outstanding design, and attention to detail. He listens to your dream and then creates something that is beyond what you could imagine. He never stops constantly adding to your space and improving its story by adding details and personal touches that make it feel like home. His team is attentive and responsive. They respond with detail and make sure all your questions, concerns, and needs are met. I would highly recommend Nathan and his team to anyone that is looking for outstanding service and design.
Nathan Taylor and Obelisk Home are trusted advisors, just as much as our Attorney, Architect, Contractor and Banker. Nathan and his team consistently produce exceptional results and are “World Class” professionals. I consider them a valuable part of our overall development team, as they always add value to the project. At the end of the day, the project is superior because of their contribution and I highly recommend them.
Nathan and his design team did a beyond superb job with remodeling and designing a new master bath, kitchen, mudroom, and two guest baths. I’m certain that there’s no one else that could’ve done a better job than him. I have full confidence in home and his ideas. He’s made my home into a place I’ve always dreamed of, but never thought I’d have.
Obelisk Home’s Nathan Taylor was captain of the ship on our year-long journey to renovate our beloved home of 21 years. The house possessed a wonderful bone structure, but virtually every aspect of its life had become out-dated, leaky or dysfunctional. Nathan began by helping us to understand our living patterns; he didn’t try to make the house what he wanted, he helped us to make it what we wanted.
We knew Nathan and his team would be of help to us in the decorating phase of the job, but we had not realized how knowledge, imaginative and inventive he would be in the architectural designing and actual building phases. Being able to view multiple ideas in a 3D format was especially invaluable to us in the re-designing of our kitchen and pantry areas as well as the new addition of a master bathroom and bedroom. A major aspect of our project was to make everything on the main level handicap accessible. Now, if we find our needs changing as we age, we will be prepared to meet those challenges right here in our own home.
Nathan was very accessible throughout all phases of the project, many times when we had a critical decision to make, a quick phone call brought him right out to the job to help work through the problem-solving at hand. Once we were into the interior design segment of the project, Nathan again was organized and ready to move in the direction we wanted to go. Yes, he nudged us a few times from the beaten path into more imaginative choices, but those choices were still within the mode of what we were after in terms of feel and effect.
Nathan is a force of energy, he is always positive, pleasant and engaging. His sense of artistry is amazing. I particularly appreciate the fact that Nathan has developed a group of local artists and artisans who assist him in producing all manner of custom-made elements such as blown glass pendants, stone mantel pieces, decorative steel shelving, sculptural pieces, one-of-a-kind coffee tables, art work and more. Developing such relationships with artists takes time, talent, mutual respect and camaraderie. My husband particularly appreciated that the word custom-made is not necessarily synonymous with the word expensive.
Our old home, transformed into the 21st century, is just what we wanted, moreover it is just what we needed. We will without doubt remain here for the rest of our years. Nathan is equal to any challenge no matter how large or small, general or specific, conservative or eccentric. We are pleased to recommend him to anyone who is embarking on the journey toward a better, more enjoyable life, through means of improving their physical environment. We hope you enjoy the process as much as we did.
I hired Nathan for the first time over a year ago. I was having some difficulty in finding tables for my entryway. It was my first time hiring a decorator, and truthfully, I didn’t know how it was going to work out. However, the entire experience, from the initial consultation, to the final delivery exceeded my expectations immensely! Not only did Nathan and his team listen to what my visions and preferences were, but they incorporated personal items that I already owned (an antique chandelier which belonged to my Grandmother) to turn our entryway into a truly personalized space. After working with Nathan on the entryway, then the living room, kitchen and master bedroom, I can truly say that he has been a blessing in our lives! He turned our house into a beautiful family home that reflects each person in our family, including our 3 year old daughter! We feel so lucky to have found Nathan!
Currently, Nathan is working on an addition to our house. His team not only is going to decorate the interior, but they also designed the addition itself! We just broke ground yesterday, and I could not be more excited to see the final product!
Nathan and team have a great eye for improving and updating existing spaces. They work well listening to the needs and objectives and offering constructive feedback and recommendations. Great experience.
If you are looking for a unique and creative experience with a designer and a talented support staff, then Obelisk Home is your destination. Nathan has a good grasp of the processes that are in play during the construction of a new custom home or remodel project. Nathan’s knowledge of this process is incredibly important if you expect to have a smile on your face at the end of the project. Nathan and Obelisk Home will not disappoint.
Nathan provides the most helpful and creative advice I could ask for. He’s the only designer I’ll ever use on future projects and I’ve recommended him to multiple family members and friends and they have all been just as happy with him and his amazing work!
We hired Nathan Taylor in Spring 2014 for a kitchen renovation in our 1940-built home. It was a major endeavor, as we wanted to take out a load-bearing wall, and wanted to use the front part of the house more which was closed off because of the traditional formal/informal division of space. We told him we wanted an eclectic space and look that was functional, practical, simple, with clean lines, warm and welcoming, with good quality materials, and that unified all our spaces. (We have a 1960’s era lodge-feel room addition that is totally amazing, but doesn’t go with the rest of the house) We wanted a new space that felt like it had history and looked like it could have always been here.
Nathan and his team nailed it. From the beginning design phase, we were impressed with his knowledge of design and of kitchen functionality. He thought of several things that we would have otherwise accidentally overlooked (and we have already been through a kitchen remodel in another home). We had one thing in mind, but the layout they came up with was brilliant and we quickly realized would be perfect. Nathan really had a vision from the beginning, and we did well to trust it during the process. He was the perfect amount of involved for our project–never more than we wanted him to be (because we wanted to be very involved in everything), but always available for help and input when we needed or wanted it, especially at critical times during the process (like deciding on type and amount of lighting). We had heard stories from friends who had used other interior designers in the past, and it seemed like their design fees were always more than they anticipated or had been told they would be. We did not feel this way about working with Nathan. In the end, we feel we paid a fair amount, and got a very good value for our investment, which is a really important thing.
Nathan was indispensable in the areas of layout and functionality, lighting, colors, overall aesthetic and knowledge of resources in our community and online. As someone who can be very indecisive when it comes to this kind of thing, having someone there for input whose ideas and knowledge I trusted was incredibly helpful. He had great ideas, and we were pleased with pretty much everything he recommended, probably in great part because he really listened to what we wanted in the beginning. He was also very good at identifying problems along the way and intervening to get them addressed, even when we didn’t necessarily realize there was an issue. A friend who recommended Nathan to us told me “he will do whatever your style is, but better than you could ever do it,” and we found this to be very true! And because he has such a history and network in our area, his connections, influence, and resources proved invaluable at different points in the process.
We have ended up with a kitchen that has so surpassed our highest expectations, both in functionality and aesthetics, that we still can’t really believe it is in our house! It has completely transformed the space and the way in which we use it. We now spend a great deal of time the front part of the house, and eat at the dining room table by the window more often than not, instead of using it only when company comes. The kitchen beautifully blends old and new and feels like it could have always been part of the house; from the floating shelves dating to the early 1900’s, to the mixture of light fixtures and hardware, to the moveable butcher block island to the beveled subway tile, it feels like an updated space with a history. Because of the layout, it works well for multiple people to be prepping and cooking at the same time, and a slew of people can be in and around the kitchen without feeling cramped at all. Plus it is just FUN!
It was a pleasure to work with Nathan and his team at Obelisk and we would definitely use him again!
A dream of mine has always been to live in a loft downtown. Having just sold a 5 bedroom, 4800 square foot home and moving into a 2 bedroom, 1500 square foot loft would prove to be a challenge. My desire was to start new with furnishings and accessories. Knowing of Nathan’s highly regarded reputation in the market, I contracted for Nathan and his team to provide design services to help me accomplish my desired goal. Having many preconceived ideas and notions about what I wanted, I met with Nathan and his team to convey my ideas and intents.
Nathan was very accommodating to my ideas and goals. Being a “do-it-your-selfer”, I was reluctant to accept some of the ideas and suggestions presented to me by Nathan and his team. But due to their patience, expertise and level of professionalism I learned to accept these ideas and suggestions only to find out that my expectations were greatly exceeded by anything I could have imagined in the beginning. Today I reside in a beautifully decorated and designed modern loft that I could not have imagined when I set out on this project.
I thank Nathan and his team for their expertise and persistence in continuing to excel in this endeavor and exceed my expectations in every way. They turned a “difficult space” into one that is both functional and livable while maintaining a style that makes me want to “show it off.” I commend them on their visionary skills, eye for style and design, ability to accommodate my individual style, patience and persistence to continue until they “get it right.” I would recommend Nathan and his team for any project, both big and small and for any style.
Total master bath renovation taking early 90’s into modern day comfort, warmth, and contemporary style on time and on budget. Close communication made modifications easy with fantastic results.
I just never thought about having someone else decorating my home. I wanted someone to feel about my home like I did. I didn’t think that was possible.
Nathan had decorated an Open House. My husband, Norm, and I were intreged. Talked to Nathan then and he said he would take a look.
Yes, we were very surprised! It still looked like our home, only more organized and tasteful. We had so many things that have been passed down to us from family. I had no idea what to do with them. Nathan just said go away for the day and come back and see what we’ve done. We came home and where in awe. So fantastic! I saw my family all over and sometimes I didn’t pick up on things that were done for a few days!
You got into my head. The bedroom for my granddaughters was the best! Pictures, design on the wall, fabric. Again,you got into my head.
I already have recommended you to friends. They see my home and how comfortable it is. That is because Nathan cherished my home too. Nathan has become my friend.
Gets it right every time and is a blast to work with. I refer everyone I can to Nathan and Obelisk Home.
From beginning to end, we were very pleased with our project with Nathan Taylor. In the beginning he took the time to get to know us, learn how we lived in the house and what we had that we could not live without. From there, he came up with concepts and ideas’s that were right on for us. He has thoroughly updated our home that we have lived in for 25 years and made it such a pleasure to come home to. He was innovative and thoughtful in his approach and available whenever we wanted to get together. We highly recommend his services.
I have worked with Nathan for the past several years on projects ranging from remodel to designing to move in set up. I have always found his work to be impeccable. He has always been professional. We have always been very pleased with his work. We would definitely use his services again.
Obelisk Home created our dream Master Bath and Bedroom. My husband loves historic hotels, so when we thought about remodeling the feel and function we wanted was that of an elegant, romantic hotel from the early 20th century. Nathan Taylor and his team did a wonderful job of translating our dreams into a reality. He was able to redesign the layout of our existing bath to make it more functional. It now feels and looks larger than before. The Obelisk team utilized our existing cabinet base and repurposed the upper cabinet into a beautiful focal point in the room. From the heated tile floor and towel rack to the beautiful sconces and hardware, every detail was well thought out. The construction was well executed by Morgan Kline the project manager for Alltimate Home Improvements. Morgan was easy to work with and was in constant communication with the design team at Obelisk Home. We love our bedroom too, it is so warm and inviting. The custom made bedding and window treatments are beautiful. The tailoring is beautiful, which I really appreciate since I have always made my own draperies in the past. Nathan and his design team incorporated many of our personal items and pieces from my husband’s collection of hotel memorabilia.
I had the pleasure of working with Nathan and his team at Obelisk for a complete basement remodel. Nathan put together an amazing vision and our walk-out basement which is now our favorite space in our home. We had such a great experience, we have hired Nathan for another project and highly recommend him.
I first came in contact with Nathan at a luncheon that Obelisk Home hosted, and I was immediately struck with home he had so much insight into how to make his client’s home feel like ‘their’ home. Not some cookie cutter like so many designers. Nathan has an excellent read on people and what would make them happy. They have made our home a “wow”!
Nathan Taylor of Obelisk Home in Springfield, Missouri is an amazing designer. We hired Obelisk Home to assist us with one aspect of an update for our music room and before we knew it, we had nearly an entire house remodel and update. Our home is a reflection of our style. It is comfortable, but beautiful, with an artsy edge. With such a wonderful experience with our Springfield home, we asked Nathan to do a remodel of our Breckenridge Colorado Home. Our home is a comfortable, 1900 square foot cabin that had limited seating space in the common area. Nathan commissioned furniture designer, J. Martin of Bridge Blue, to design furniture that captured the rustic features of Colorado mountain life, yet was highly functional. The rustic cabinet by the door has two racks for wet shoes and boots plus drawers for hats and gloves. J. and Nathan designed a copper top table that houses 4 leather ottomans tucked neatly away when not in use. Nathan also designed and commissioned Beetle Kill Blues, of Breckenridge, Colorado to make a stunning sleek buffet for the dining room. Hanging over the original wood farm table is a chandelier made of antlers with hints of blues and bronzes that Nathan commissioned for the space.
We are very blessed to work with a designer like Nathan Taylor.
Nathan and Obelisk Home are an extremely talented and dedicated team focused on providing an outstanding end product.
The most surprising aspect of working with the Obelisk team is the personalized relationships that develop during the design process. Nathan and his team take the time to become knowledgeable about their client. This facilitates a completed project that ‘fits’ the personality and lifestyle of those utilizing the space. This process results in friendships and working relationships that last.
Nathan and his team were amazing! They brought brilliant ideas for all facets of our house and furnishings while listening to our wants. I highly recommend them. I fully trust Nathans judgement and style.
Nathan never fails to exceed our expectations! It was so important to us that our home have a unique design that was specific to us, and Nathan and his team accomplished just that. After hiring Nathan to consult on a remodel of our old house we knew there was only one call we needed to make when we decided to build a new home. Nathan’s eye for design is second to none and we are more than impressed with our finished product.
From consulting with our architect and builder, to selecting interior and exterior materials, and selecting interior furnishings Nathan and his team went above and beyond to make our home one of a kind.
Nathan and J allowed my wife and I to rediscover our home. Their professionalism, creativity, and the quality of all phases of the decorating process were exceptional. As a banker, I am somewhat frugal but I never thought that spending money could be so much fun. Susan and I would highly recommend Obelisk Home to anyone considering remodeling or redecorating their home or office.
Obelisk Home, and in particular, Nathan Taylor is extremely and uniquely talented in the area of Interior Design and Decor’. When Nathan did our home he was under a tremendous time crunch and took one brief look around, left to study on it, and within a couple of days had three rooms of fabrics, furniture, and accessories ready for me to look at for approval. The entire project was finished in less than six weeks and it is fabulous. We get compliments every time someone walks through the door. Nathan will definitely be invited back for our next design project.
Thank you Obelisk Home …. And thank you Nathan Taylor.
Dear Mr. Taylor,
Thank you so much for designing my new room. I am sitting in the rolling chair, writing on the desk and enjoying the acoustics! I love how much space I have, even when I am in the bed with the drapes closed. I stayed up until 10:00 pm last night after you left transferring everything over. Thank you so much! -Edward
Thank you Obelisk Home …. And thank you Nathan Taylor.
Our home was completely destroyed by fire caused by a lightning strike. From the first moment I skipped a business meeting in Springfield as I was trying focus on rebuilding, refurnishing, continuing our business and walked into Obelisk Home, I knew we were going to be in good hands during this difficult time. Nathan provided support both, professionally and personally. He was able to know what I wanted when I wasn’t able to express it. He did an amazing job working closely with our builder in selecting paint, cabinets, woodwork, lights, along with presenting design options for furniture, materials, rugs, lamps, window coverings, etc. Nathan worked within our budget while providing unique, fun and personal options – 200 year old pillars, full length mirrors from Marshall FIelds building in Chicago, refurbishing a Chippendale bench for the Master Bath and selecting an art piece that brought back memories of my grandmother. Obelisk Home received all of our furniture/art work and handled personal delivery to our home. In a one week time span, Nathan and his team delivered everything to our home in Iowa, placed all furniture, hung art work, arranged floral, etc. When my husband returned home from business trip at the end of that week, we had a beautiful home again to move forward building new memories with family and friends. Truly amazing! I cannot recommend Nathan and the Obelisk team more highly! Although the loss of our home was heartbreaking, the blessing we received from this experience was to have Nathan in our lives. Whenever I get a chance to be in Springfield, I look forward to stopping in at Obelisk Home to see that beautiful smile and share a hug!
Nathan Taylor and the Obelisk Team are AWESOME!!!! Actually Awesome is inadequate to describe their talent, creativity, work ethic and follow through. As a former Executive we were required to move several times over the past 20 years and Nathan has transformed five houses to beautiful homes for us. While we hated to leave our beautiful home each time, his work created instant “awe” when realtors and buyers saw them. Several sold in one day and others within a week or less. One sold before we listed to the first person that viewed it. In our opinion, each time buyers were captured by his work and transformation of the home versus the actual house. We’ve recently retired and Nathan is now completing our retirement home. As we “downsized” Nathan and the Obelisk Team made an ordinary small ranch home a unique and beautiful home combining traditional pieces we have always loved with new updated contemporary stylings.
For those of you needing the “full experience” in home design, you HAVE to go see the professionals at The Obelisk. I know very little about design; however, Nathan and his team somehow read my mind! They listened very carefully to what I wanted (or thought I wanted) my living room to look like. Then they showed me different pieces to gain insight about my tastes. Believe me, they were very patient! The end result is perfect. My family and friends were amazed at the transformation & wanted to know “who did it?”. Nathan, J and their staff honestly treat you like you are the most important client they have. I’m definitely hooked & won’t go back into a “big box” store being left to wander around aimlessly. The attention you get is unmatched, the quality of merchandise is stellar, but most of all the comradery is lasting. I will continue returning to The Obelisk to purchase gifts and to furnish my home as remodeling is completed.
Nathan’s design services are unlike any other is seen person. Perfection and stunning design is what Nathan strives for. Great eye and a great team behind him.
What a joy to work with. Nathan gives us solutions that fit within our budget. He is professional, fun and incredibly talented. His communication and follow up are top notch. Our house is a long term project and I look forward to the process. Springfield is lucky to have Nathan Taylor and Obelisk Home. I highly recommend them to anyone.
The most surprising aspect of working with the Obelisk team is the personalized relationships that develop during the design process. Nathan and his team take the time to become knowledgeable about their client. This facilitates a completed project that “fits” the personality and lifestyle of those utilizing the space. This process results in friendships and working relationships that last.
I am an artist represented at Obelisk Home. I have my work in several galleries in several states, but Nathan and Obelisk Home combine their design skills and art placement for their clients better than anyone I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Not only am I a fan of Nathan Taylor’s work; I am extremely grateful for being a part of his creative process.
This is a wonderful group to work with. They have great ideas and listen to how you use space as they develop designs that match lifestyle.
Great people to work with. Nathan and his team worked with us for several months to make sure we got what we wanted. We live several hours from the Springfield store and they made it easy to discuss ideas via email, exchange pics, etc.
Great selections of home decor items as well as many choice of custom furniture.
Looking forward to working with Obelisk for our future projects.
As an artist, I respect the compositional style and distinct qualities that Nathan has brought to each space he has designed using original art works. He is able to connect to the individual characteristics, needs and comfort levels of his clients and friends through art. He uses that connection to create environments that reflect the energy and spirit that allows people to feel and be their very best. His vision and passionate attention to detail bring beauty and soothing balance and order to indoor life.
We have worked with Nathan Taylor and his team from Obelisk for about four years now! Every project we have worked with Nathan on is a “One-of-a-Kind”! All his projects reflect the personalities of his clients. One of the things I have consistently noticed over the years, is that he has the unique ability to come up with very creative solutions to some pretty big construction challenges. Where most would say that just isn’t possible, Nathan finds a way to overcome the obstacle. A great example of this is the space under the stairway in this Vintage Charm Kitchen. The client wanted to keep access to this space not only for storage but as a place for her kids to play. The client needed cabinetry storage in this small kitchen, and Nathan came up with this creative way to close off under the stairs with cabinets, but still have access to the space. You can see the outcome in the pictures provided in this project. Nathan works very hard for his clients and the end results are “Always” stunning!!! He is one of the most talented Designer’s I know!
Nathan is great to work with! We started new construction on Nov 2012 and completed the project in September 2014. He was able to add unique features to our house, but staying within our budget. I feel like Nathan and his team made our house have the “Wow” factor.
Nathan characterized both knowledge and professionalism in the service he provided, In my associations with him he was aware of my objectives and provided a variety of alternative styles that could accomplish my desired visual. He was never intrusive while his ability to communicate his vision was uncomplicated. Working with Nathan provided a pleasurable experience and I would recommend his services without hesitation to anyone needing a designer.
I am a professional interior photographer who shoots high end hotels and homes all over the world. Having photographed a number of Nathan’s designs over the years I can say without a doubt he is an exceptional design talent. He has an extraordinary taste level and he manages to capture the needs of each of his clients while still flavoring them with his signature touches. He is also great to work with and it is very clear that his clients feel the same way.
Nathan and his staff are amazing! His ideas and vision for any project are very unique and can transform any space into a magazine worthy product. I would highly recommend Nathan for any residential or commercial project.
Nathan amazes me with his talent for putting together the whole picture. He has a large and wonderful team of delightful people. His work is unique, incorporating quality, beauty with a discerning eye for a new way to put elements together. He is organized, greatly respected and has the most beautiful showroom I have ever seen!
Nathan helped me design a living that was comfortable, functional, and yet had a sophisticated classic style. I couldn’t have been happier with his design and recommendations. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nathan to family and friends.
Nathan is a knowledgeable and creative designer. He knows where to source a project or a product, and has a great of reading your needs and your sense of style quickly and competently. And beyond that, he is pleasant and encouraging to work with whether you are just forming and idea or you have a specific vision. He is the reason I have things in my house that I love!
I have been a fan and customer of Obelisk Home and Nathan Taylor’s work for 5 years. In that time I have seen him transform, not only spaces, but peoples lives through his work. Nathan’s professional and charismatic demeanor makes him a joy to be around and I don’t know a person that he has worked with that wouldn’t call him a friend. Because of the accessibility of great pieces and innovative style afforded by the store he owns and operates, Taylor can individualize your home and make sure that YOU come through in the design. I couldn’t recommend his company more.
Nathan and team at Obelisk Home continue to uplift our warm, comforting environment at the Ronald McDonald House with design advice and services, amazing furniture and home decor items, and that SPECIAL TOUCH that conveys that our “home away from home” was designed with cutting edge creativity AND sprinkled with caring and love for families experiencing a child’s serious illness or injury. My personal residence is filled with furniture and lamps from Obelisk Home —- absolutely LOVE it all. If you are looking for someone who will learn your style and needs, then provide a great result with unique creativity and professionalism, you’ve found the perfect person!
I hired Nathan after purchasing my home on Southwest Springfield (Battlefield) I didn’t know what I was looking for towards furniture and placement. He came over did a walk through we taked and later came back with a load of furniture, art and made my home beautiful!! Years later the furniture still sits exactly where he placed it I don’t move a thing because he placed it perfect! And I still love it! I don’t question him Nathan knows what he is doing just hire the man and the job will be done above expectations!
Obelisk Home is the all around complete package, and it starts with Nathan. In a fast pace world that we live in, Obelisk provides another level of customer service that so many companies just can’t achieve. Nathan demands knowledge, communication, and accountability from all his staff, all while having a great time and treating the customer like family.
Nathan first made a consulting trip to south Florida to determine the decor needs of my home. He measured, drew diagrams placing furniture on the sketches. He then sent pictures and sample fabrics. We selected and when furniture was ready he drove the van with all the furniture and fixtures and personally placed and installed everything.
He sent me away for the day and when I returned…..”wow”!
Nathan Taylor is a talented, creative, home decor mastermind. He has a knack for taking your ideas and visions to a level of greatness you hadn’t even considered. He can transform a room of your existing furniture and accessories into a more cohesive, welcoming space with just a few quick moves. Give him a blank canvas and a masterpiece will be created. A Nathan Taylor wedding is always a stunning success. He’s always a phone call away–He’s even come to my home on a Sunday evening to help solve a paint color crisis. I’ve known Nathan Taylor for almost 15 years, both professionally and personally, and his customers continued to be amazed. I’m still amazed!
The first thing that pops into my mind about Nathan is that he truly cares and is passionate about his craft. He has a natural ability to take a space and turn it into its full potential. Working with him as one of his gallery artists I am amazed to see how he transforms a space and uses original art to compliment that space. Truly blessed to be represented by Nathan and his team at Obelisk Home.
Nathan Taylor is brilliant. I love working with him. He is extremely talented. I have worked with him many times.
Nathan’s design work defines “creativity”. He has a unique ability to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
We used Obelisk Home to design our remodel. We did not think we had enough room for everything we wanted. We wanted a modern design that opened up our floor plan. we needed more storage and less clutter. They were extremely helpful. They took our extremely dated home and made it look like a million bucks! We would not hesitate to recommend Obelisk Home to anyone.
I want to thank you and the entire team at Obelisk, we have been so pleased with the team, and the design and the furniture purchased through your group. Everything is amazing, working with your team was the bright point of our entire build processes!
Alan and I are still in awe over our home. You were right—you all do Truly work magic.
Alan got home late last night and I was already in Warrensburg. He just kept saying. It is “Stunning”!
Thank you again, to all of you, for making the trip and making our home gorgeous! You are wonderfully talented. We feel very special you would take time to share that talent with us. It is very evident you love what you do.
Nathan was terrific at bringing new ideas to the layout and spacial design of our 1950’s ranch remodel. The new flow of the house feels like it could have been built this way and is much more functional. We have been thrilled with the outcome. Nathan also provided design elements to improve curb appeal that were in keeping with the era of the home and the neighborhood. He was a terrific sounding board and kept us from making mistakes along the way.
We had a great experience working with Nathan, Toni, and the Obelisk Home team on a refresh of our living/dining room, game room, and powder room. They are SO talented and wonderful to work with.
Nathan has been fantastic on several different projects on our home and each time I’m amazed at his creavity and design ideas! I love how he uses items that are treasures to our family and mixes them in with updated furniture and fabrics that he finds at market!
Great sense of style, unique pieces, friendly, can work with what you have to bring things up to date with current styles.
Nathan Taylor is the total package–great knowledge, vast experience, highly professional, completely creative, and (the best part) fun and brilliant. He sees beauty like no other. He understands interiors from product development to retail. He can work with commercial and residential accounts with ease and ultimate individuality. Nathan has an incredible eye for color, texture, and proportion. His spaces are comfortable, personalized, and functional. His work is prominently featured in publications and all is unique, yet timeless. I want it all. He has earned nothing but praise working with a number of my associates on their homes and sponsoring dozens of university interns. Highly recommended? Without a doubt!
I have had the privilege of working with Nathan Taylor on several projects and he is a true professional in every sense of the word. Nathan has the unique ability to merge his client’s ideas along with their lifestyles to create a fabulous space that fits them perfectly. His clients love his designs because he delivers what the client could imagine but never create on their own. Every room has unique aspects which make you feel as though you know the client personally when you see the finished design.
In addition to being an award winning designer, he also takes the time to support many charitable events in our community. I would give him 10 stars if I could!
