My favorite is red tiger lotus. It takes a while and takes a lot of trimming to get one to bulk up, but they definitely make a great centerpiece.

Most swords can make great centerpiece plants also, amazons are pretty commonly used. I really like marble queen radicans, indian red sword, and red ozelots.

I'm kind of liking the look of the amazons. Do they typically fan out?

Amazon swords get very large, the leaves can be as much as 3-4" wide and the plant definitely spreads out as the leaves get near the surface and start to lay over.
