Speakers with high WAF?

Friends, I have moved all my gear out of our family room and resituated it in my photostudio - all with my wife's unstated blessing. She hated the looks of those Newform Research 645's - mid/bass drivers in a rectangular black box, with a ribbon pole shooting out of the top to about 6'. But they sound so nice...So I am looking for a pair of replacements that may be a bit less "form following function." Showed her a pair of Adagios in the beautiful burl walnut - "but they don't look like furniture...." Thinking that a pair of Klipschorns tucked in the corners of our large family would be a bit more innocuous, she asked "Isn't there something that could be hung on the wall/" Guess that nixes the Klips. So I'd appreciate any of you guys who were ultimately able to satisfy your sonic needs and your wife's esthetic sensibilities. And ladies, your imput would be particularly appreciated.
I'll second rockadanny's strong recommendation on the Salk's

I have a pair of HT3's that are just stunning
musically and sonically

as much as JIm put's into his woodwork, his drivers, crossovers, etc are every bit and then some
My wife loves my Verity Audio Parisifal Ovations....however, the finish is the pricy Big Leaf Quilted Maple.

My wife loves my Totem Hawks in mahogany. I got itchy the other day and casually suggested swapping them out the other day to gauge her reaction and the idea ended there.
Jb8312, I would love to see some images of your speakers. I have a table in big leaf quilted maple which is the most spectacular wood I have ever seen. They must make just gorgeous speaker cabinets. You lucky dog.
Deliberate1, try clicking on Jb8312's 'System' link, there are photos in there of his Parsifal's.
I think they look fabulous, my wife prefers my Makore finish though, which is quite fortunate, since the Makore cost less than the Big Leaf Quilted Maple.
