If you're looking for something as far away from a grandfather clock (or the Grandpa Clock below) as possible, check out Sarah by Esby. It's an "abstracted botanical form" inspired by both the shape and the movement of plants -- the flexible graphite stem lets Sarah sway gently in the breeze. Maybe not so good for reading the time, but it does make the clock look cool. Sarah is 5 feet tall and comes in natural, orange, white, green, yellow or custom colors. It seems to run $350-$499 at various online stores I Googled.
