Are there speaker stands for tower speakers?

I recently moved into a new house, and with the way our furniture fits in in our living room there's a recliner that that blocks the bottom part of one of my front tower speakers. I'd like to elevate them above the arm rest line of the recliner, so it doesn't block the sound path at all. I've started looking around online and I can't seem to find any ideas for elevating tower speakers? Does anyone have any ideas on a specific type of stand made for this purpose specifically, or even a nice finished box of some sort to use as a stand. Thanks.

What about these VTI amp stands? They come in 7", 9", and 13"and can support 250lbs.

Well , that's the best option I've seen yet. The link you posted it looks like the height is 14 1/2" for the base. That would get me close to where I need to be for the height. I could always get the 7" add on to boost the speaker up to where it would truly be above the arm line. I'm still up for more suggestions, but this one may work.

I love those VTI modular racks. I use them for my 100lbs ATI amps, Denon processor, and HTPCs. But they are so strong and sturdy, they would work great for any tower.

I stack the 9" racks atop the 13" racks in my system. I actually just ordered another 9" rack this morning to replace my current 7" rack to give my one of my amps more space.

Mine are the really thick glass version, but the wood shelves are cheaper and come in 3 different colors.

The VTI modular racks are very elegant looking.
