Are grandfathers clocks in an entry out of style?

Grandfather clocks are classic furnishing items and should never be subject to style anywhere. If you have a suitable place in an entry for it to be featured elegantly, there should be no issue. However if the space was not proportionately suitable, then it would be a decorating fail that would have nothing to do with the actual clock.

I have a 2 story foyer with a L shape staircase. I used to have a console table in the corner of the staircase, which is opposite the door. Due to a lack of space, I relocated a beautiful bar with Marble top in the table space. At times, it gives the feeling of a hotel lobby. But.. the height adds extra drama to the foyer and provides an additional space to guest to gather. Thereby, making this oversize space more usable.
