Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration. 

Looking for high quality Greek garden statues and other beautiful decor for the home and place of business? Find the best statues and decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

Write a review and send us a photo of a favorite item from our collection and you will entered into a drawing for a $200 gift certificate. This offer ends on August 31st, 2014.

What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.

How to Decorate a Bigfoot Statue for the Fall

Bigfoot the Garden YetiAugust might be a lazy, hot time of the year but autumn is just around the corner. The kids will be headed back to school in a few weeks, and Halloween is just two months away! Fall is also a fun time of the year for garden decor, especially if you have a Bigfoot sculpture. Statues of Sasquatch look great any time of the year but look even better as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. It becomes easier for neighbors and guests to notice that Bigfoot in the yard and this acts as the perfect incentive for decorating your Bigfoot decor.

Nevertheless, Bigfoot doesn't have to stand out in the garden all on his own. The large, hairy biped can also be decorated in a number of ways for the autumn season, including the following:

  • Give Sasquatch a hat: Baseball season and cooler temperatures make hats popular during the fall. Adorn Bigfoot with a baseball cap showing the local team and he will fit right in.

 

  • A flannel scarf: To keep him warm on those first nights of frost, put a scarf on your Bigfoot sculpture that matches the colors of the fall foliage.

Resin Garden Statues of Kittens

Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome SignGreek garden statues and solemn stone garden angels lend a beautiful, dramatic look to the garden. When put on display in restaurants and hotels, they can also welcome guests in classic, elegant fashion. However, as much as we love classic garden statuary, few folks would refer to such sculptures as being "cute". There are other sculptures that are much more suited for giving a cute touch to the yard, and one of the best is the kitten statue.

Big imploring eyes, a cute little face, and funny antics make kittens incredibly adorable and that same heart warming look is shown by several of our baby cat statues. If you would like to welcome guests to the garden in super cute fashion, put out the Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome Sign. Your guests will love it but watch out for cat lovers because they just might try to steal it!

Complement this cute kitten welcome sign with another fun kitten statue in our collection, the Kitten Crowd Family Statue. This sculpture shows a realistic portrayal of a family of happy house cats and looks "purrfect" when placed near the back door or in a library or living room. While acquiring kitten statues for the garden and home, you won't go wrong with the "Cherished Cat" Persian Kitten Statue for the desk. These kitten statues also make great gifts!

Unique Design Toscano Skull Decor

Thunderspirit Goth BikerWhether decorating the home interior, garden, or business, the last thing we want is decor that is average, predictable, and easy to forget. If items that fit those boring categories make any impression, it's not going to be a good one. This is why we strive to find unique, high quality decor for any decorating need. At Design Toscano, it's apparent that we are acutely aware of how important it is to utilize unique decor. This is one of the reasons why we offer more than one Bigfoot statue, a large selection of high quality animal garden sculptures, and several items that feature skulls.

For example, if you or someone you know is interested in UFOs or the science fiction fantasy genre, the Extra-Terrestrial Alien Skull Statue is a wonderful gift. The large eyes and unusual shape of this skull statue are modeled after descriptions of the supposed aliens from the Roswell UFO crash. For a more decorative, contemporary skull, you might like the Thunderspirit Goth Biker Skull Statue. This fun decor will put a smile on the face of motorcycle enthusiasts and anyone who happens to be wild at heart.

In addition to skull statues, you can also decorate the home with the Beauty and Decay Gothic Skull Stained Glass Window. This beautiful, unique stained glass piece shows the juxtaposition of a smiling skull flanked by vibrant red roses.

New Gargoyle Gifts for a Late Summer Garden

Ashes, the Gothic GargoyleThe dog days of summer are approaching and that could signal a time to make a few changes in backyard decor. Although we already have a huge selection of unique animal garden statues, beautiful garden fairies, and other decor to choose from, we also have several new arrivals that will add a unique touch to any backyard. Among those new arrivals are gargoyle figurines that add a fun look to the garden in addition to making wonderful gifts.

Victor the Vicious, Giant Gargoyle Sentry is a rough and tough, two foot tall gargoyle sculpture that looks right at home when set beside the back door. Get this detailed, intimidating gargoyle to entertain guests at your summer garden parties, or as a gift for a special person who appreciates everything Gothic. Victor also acts as wonderful decor in a night club, restaurants, and other places of business.

Ashes, the Gothic Gargoyle is another recent arrival. This classic, seated gargoyle is carefully crafted to resemble the old, weathered stone gargoyles that perch on old castles and Gothic cathedrals. Ashes will look right at home when set on top of Gothic furniture in the home, when used as decor in a bookstore or library, or as a cute little gargoyle sitting in the garden.

Outdoor Garden Water Fountains for an Asian Garden

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainGardens that feature Asian-themed decor can showcase a variety of peaceful, easy-going sculptures. Tranquil, meditative statues are often used because gardens in eastern Asia act as a peaceful place to contemplate, exercise, and relax. They also act as places where people can commune with and appreciate nature via carefully sculpted paths, trimmed trees, and beautiful plantings. In other words, the green space behind the home or place of business has the same purpose as gardens in Europe and North America. However, one of the biggest differences is related to decor.

Asian-themed decor tends to be humble and many statues are depictions of the Buddha or religious figures associated with Asian cultures. Fountains also play an important role but although the Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is nothing short of majestic, it doesn't work well with Asian decor. Save that fantastic fountain for a hotel lobby and buy other, more suitable fountains for the Asian-themed garden. These would be pieces like the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain and the beautiful Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain. Both of these unique fountains add just the right touch of easy going, natural beauty to an Asian garden along with the soothing sounds of gently flowing water. Complement their beauty with the Bamboo Wellspring Pedestal Garden Fountain.

Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.
