Has anyone ever made a stylish vesa mount?

I was just wondering if anyone had ever made a vesa mount that didn't look like a piece of crap?

More specifically I'm getting a new 27 inch monitor and I'd like a decent desk mount/stand with good articulation that's not just a horrible black bar?

Also articulation takes second place to looks here as I'm not really that bothered about how much it could move, but it would be a bonus.

the m8 is indeed a piece of artwork. however it would be a cold day in hell i would spend 400 dollars on a mount.

this seems ok. its chrome instead of black. runs about 100 bucks.

I have the Ergotron MX Deskmount, well my wife is using it at work now, with an older iMac 27" which is 9lbs heavier than the newer model.

This isn't my pic, Ergotron also makes an MX wall mount.

My M8 was about 400 when i bought it but I have since seen them for about 200 (couple of years later mind you) more finishes available now too, I'm considering a second one with a thunderbolt display on.
