Garden Cherub Statues for an Adorable Yard

Versailles Cherub Urn and PlinthAngels are representations of heavenly, perfect beings that can do no wrong. This is why sculptures of angels tend to be majestic, are bereft of flaws, are serene, and are neither male nor female but a beautiful, other worldly creature that resides in the heavenly realms. However, not all angels are mature and adult in appearance. Some angels look like chubby, innocent, winged babies. These are the cherubs and sculptures of these miniature angels are the perfect means of adding an adorable touch to any garden.

Whether by merit of their small dimensions or innocent appearance, cherubs tend to be more versatile than larger, winged angels. As is shown by the Versailles Cherub Urn and Plinth, they can be used to decorate urns and other classic garden decor, including outdoor garden water fountains. The Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain is adorned with several playful cherubs that give this classic functional decor a lively appearance.

Most cherubs, though, just look adorable. The Balancing a Dream Sculpture is a cute, sleeping baby angel that lends a peaceful, lazy look to the backyard. Complement this cute decor with other adorable cherub sculptures like the "Cherubs d'Amour Statue"  and the Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues

Find high quality cherub sculptures, classic garden statuary, and other unique decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

A very nice accent lamp

The Desiree Art Deco Lighted Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I like this lamp a lot. It's made of molded resin which of course keeps the cost down, but it looks more expensive. The figurine looks like alabaster, and the accents and shade holder look like gilded metal of some sort, perhaps bronze. In general I like Art Deco, and this lamp really captures the essence of that movement. I have the lamp on my mantel where everyone who enters my house can see it. Overall a very nice piece.

Lovely Painting!

The Declaration of Love, 1735: Canvas Replica Painting: Small

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I ordered the small sized painting along with seven other similarly-themed and sized paintings and it is one of my favorites! The painting is true to the picture seen here and came well packed and undamaged. It also arrived a week earlier than anticipated and was certainly well worth the wait of ~six weeks. I will certainly order from Design Toscano again!

Three Perfect Places for a Tiger Sculpture

Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger StatueThe Tiger has been respected, revered, and feared for ages. Despite its popularity, this beautiful big cat is rarely seen, is endangered, and is only found in wild, remote, protected areas in southern Asia, and a tiny corner of Siberia. Its popularity is related to its beautiful orange and black pelt, large size, and combination of strength and grace. These attributes are shown by all of our tiger statues, including the very realistic Powerful Pounce" Sumatran Tiger Statue.

A high quality animal statue like this makes a wonderful statement in any home, garden, or place of business but they look best when displayed in certain spots. Three of the best places to showcase a tiger statue are:

  • Right by the back door: Put your tiger next to the back door leading to the garden to impress and greet guests. The powerful "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger looks especially impressive when displayed near the back door or any entranceway!

 

  • In a prominent place: In the wild, tigers prefer to stay out of sight but in the backyard, their power and beauty should always be put on display. The Grand Scale Lying Down Bengal Tiger Statue works well as centerpiece decor in any yard.

Save on Tropical-themed Garden Statuary for Summer

Tiki Gods of Fire and WaterSummer days are here and these warm, lazy, fun-loving times are meant to be experienced outside the home. This is a well-known, practiced fact for anyone who loves the outdoors or enjoys spending time in the garden or backyard. Those of us who also love garden decor know that certain statues and other items are perfect for these wonderful summer days. Although just about any sculpture looks great in a summer garden, this is the best time of the year to put tropical-themed statues on display.

Tropical sculptures like the Tiki Gods of Fire and Water love the heat and show it with exotic, Polynesian flavor. With its blend of fire and water, this tropical fountain sculpture will act as centerpiece decor at any summer garden party.

Tropical decor also adds life to the backyard with bright, vibrant colors. The Tropical Crabs Wall Sculptures are painted with realistic reds, yellows, and blues shown by their live counterparts on tropical shores. These fun decorations add a colorful touch to garden walls, patios, the side of the pool, and vacation homes.

Complement the bright colors of those Tropical Crabs with the equally colorful and exotic Scarlet Macaws Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same bright hues as the wild, spectacular macaws that fly over the jungles of Costa Rica, Brazil, and other tropical destinations.

Take 20% off any of the beautiful tropical resin garden statues in our collection today and tomorrow only.

I bought the Ballon Chair a year ago and I am very please. I purchase this peace for my formal living room and it looks amazing in the space. Everyone that walks threw my front door adores the chair. This is the first peace of furniture they notice, although the chair is place amongst other over size peaces which is gold in color, the Balloon chair still is the show stopper. I will recommend this product to any one.

Beautiful Hand Painted Garden Fairies

Fairies of the Meadow Garden StatuesThe fairy statue is one of the more enchanting types of garden decor. Statues of these beautiful little creatures fit right in with well vegetated gardens and green space because these are the places where they are purported to live. With their butterfly wings, and elegant appearance, they add an exquisite, lovely touch to flowerbeds, and just about every type of garden. Although the fairy statues found in Victorian gardens tend to be the same color as pale marble, there are also several beautiful little fairy sculptures that sport bright colors.

The cute Fairies of the Meadow Garden Statues have dresses and wings that have been painted with pale green and pink pastels. Their colors also match the blooms carried in their arms. Pair these beautiful fairies with the even more adorable Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy.

The Red and Green Fairy of Acorn Hollow Statues have also been carefully painted by hand but show brighter hues, more elegant features, and are ringed by small, colorful petals. These fairy statues will look right at home when placed next to your brightest flowerbeds.

One of our most colorful fairy statues is the Pondering Pixie Stained Glass Sculpture. This life-like, lovely depiction of a fairy makes use of more than 75 pieces of carefully cut, stained glass for her beautiful butterfly wings.

Save on these fine decor items, unique garden statuary, and more at Design Toscano.

Western-Themed Animal Garden Statues

Great White BuffaloThe animal yard statue is fun, easy decor that works for every backyard. Animal statues can be used to make a bold statement about the types of animals you like, can be used to showcase the stunning beauty found in the animal kingdom, and can also add a touch of drama to the garden decorating scheme. Of course, different types of animal statues also work with different types of decorating themes, including decor associated with western states and provinces.

One of the signature animals of the great "Wild West" is the Bison. Huge herds of Bison used to roam the plains and prairies of the west and were an important source of food, clothing, and shelter for several Native American cultures. Although the numbers of Bison have been greatly reduced, populations can still be found in some protected areas and private reserves. The Great White Buffalo sculpture captures the power and beauty of this powerful animal with fine details and a muscled appearance.

The Gray Wolf is another animal associated with the western frontier and still occurs in Yellowstone National Park, and wild remote areas of Montana and Idaho. Put the Howling Lone Wolf Garden Statue on display to give it a wild, provocative, wilderness look. Pair it with the Clever Coyote Statue to complete your western look.

Buy $75 or more of animal garden sculptures and other fine Design Toscano decor and enjoy free standard shipping until June 15th.
