Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.

Save Money on Dragon and Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle SculpturesSome people are fine with a garden that plays host to a few, easy-going gnomes and some cute animal garden statues. There's certainly nothing wrong with that but some of us like to change up our garden statuary display from time to time by featuring a gargoyle sculpture or two. Contrary to what some people might have you believe, gargoyles aren't just meant to perch on the ramparts of old French cathedrals. They can also lend a unique, eye-catching touch to the garden, especially when paired with dragon statues.

We are big fans of beautiful dragon and gargoyle sculptures because we are well aware of the unique look they give to a backyard or even a place of business. Put a gargoyle like Silas the Sentry near the back door and guests will either feel as if they are walking into a medieval mansion, a place of fantasy, or wonder if they should enter in the first place. For less intimidating gargoyle statues that are also on sale, you might like the cute little Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set.

However, no gargoyle scene looks complete without an appropriate dragon. We have more than one fine dragon statue on sale including Dread, the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture, and the striking Desmond the Dragon Sculpture.

Dark and Beautiful Gothic Decor

Dragon's Wrath Sculptural ChandelierGothic decorations aren't for everybody but those of us who appreciate this unique genre of decor are enchanted by the dark, exquisite beauty. The dark themes shown by these items remind us of favorite books, films, and games that bring us to another time and place. We appreciate the fine, sharp details shown by many Gothic items, and the efforts and imagination required to create stunning, unique decor like the Dragon's Wrath Sculptural Chandelier, and the Balkan Vampire Blood Cross Statue.

We also like the fact that Gothic furniture is available. Classic, Victorian-themed metal crosses adorn the distressed wooden cabinets and sides of the dark and beautiful Gothic Sanctuary Five Drawer Chest to give it an ancient, storied look. The perfect complement to this fine piece is the equally Gothic and distressed Gothic Sanctuary Side Table.

Dark and beautiful items are also available to decorate the tops of these furniture items. The Shadowcrested Tomb Guardians Dragon Chalice is a beautiful, detailed ceremonial cup that features twin dragons. Although it isn't recommended for use as an actual drinking cup, it makes splendid, eye-catching, Gothic interior decor. It also pairs well with a number of other exquisite items including the Dragon Strike Illuminated Sculpture.

Pay nothing for regular shipping when buying $75 or more in resin garden statues, and other unique items at Design Toscano until today, January 14th.

Three Good Arguments for Gargoyle Figurines

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyle garden statues can be fitting decor for any backyard. Given the intimidating, Gothic look of a classic gargoyle, that might not seem feasible for gardens decorated with cute animals and other cheerful, benign sculptures. Nevertheless, although some of the more frightening gargoyles would certainly look out of place in a garden filled with adorable animal garden sculptures, there are other, very cute gargoyles that fit the bill. The following are three arguments that show why Gargoyles are more versatile than many people realize:

 

  • A classic, regal look: Yes, many gargoyle statues give the garden a classic, royal look because they were traditionally limited to the ramparts of cathedrals and castles. They were high class decor meant to scare off all things evil, and can still provide an intimidating, Medieval touch to any garden.

 

  • Unique, beautiful sculptures: This is one of the easiest arguments to make for getting a gargoyle sculpture. A statue like Gaston, the Gothic Climbing Gargoyle is one of a kind wall decor meant to entertain any garden guest. 

Purchase $75 or more in garden statuary, and anything else at Design Toscano until January 14th and get free regular shipping.

Benefits of Basil Street Gallery Décor for Any Business

Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee TableDecor has a number of functions. It can be used in the backyard to lend a bit of character to our personal green oases. We use interior decor to help turn an apartment or house into a personalized home. Decor can also be used for illumination, and furniture like the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table can help you serve drinks in unique style. However, fine decor can also be successfully used outside the home, especially in a place of business.

When we walk into a store, hotel, or restaurant, we want to feel welcomed. We are more likely to make a purchase, enjoy our stay, or at least talk about the place of business if we feel "at home", are treated like royalty, or are pleasantly surprised and entertained by our surroundings. The right type of decor helps make this happen, and some of the best decorations for this purpose can be found at Basil Street. The Peacock Goddess Torchiere Floor Lamp is a unique and elegant way to provide lighting for a store, restaurant, or hotel. To make an even bigger impression on customers and guests, pair it with the Entwined Mermaids Sculptural Floor Lamp.

Clients can also be given a royal, classic welcome with decor like The Rose Garland Sculptural Pedestal and the Venus of Arles Sculpture.

Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Realistic Dragon Garden Statues

Sir Gawain's Dragon SculptureDragons might be creatures of legend but more than one person has wondered if they was a time when dragons did indeed roam the land. The belief in dragons is supported by the presence of similar, scaled beasts in a variety of cultures from different times and places. However, since a fossil of a dragon has yet to be found, their actual existence seems far from likely. Nevertheless, that hasn't stopped scholars from trying to find explanations for sculptures, artwork, and tales that depict dragons from ancient Babylon, China, and Europe.  

Tales and legends of dragons may have been inspired by fossils of dinosaurs, might stem from interactions with large reptiles, or maybe even come from other unknown creatures from the distant past. Some also say that dragons are just metaphors but whatever their origin, legends of dragons endure to this day. We can see them in several films, they still make regular appearances in novels, and life-like dragon decor can show up in the backyard. One such realistic depiction of a dragon is the Sir Gawain's Dragon Sculpture. This fantastic, highly detailed dragon looks as if it is clawing its way into the garden! You also get the attention of garden guests with the realistic, two foot plus long Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull Statue.

Shop at Design Toscano to find the best selection of dragon decor and other unique garden statuary.

Give and Save on Animal Yard Statue Gifts

Shadowed Predator Black Panther StatueHoliday shopping can be a challenge. It would be so much easier and less time-consuming if all of our family and friends could just give us their wish lists. Your brother already has everything, what more could he possibly want? Then there is the wonderful niece who doesn't seem to like anything (or at least doesn't say what she likes). The best way of dealing with such holiday shopping conundrums is to think outside the box. One of several out of the box options in our collection is the animal garden sculpture. Most people like animals or at least appreciate them, especially when the animal appeals to their personality.

The uncle who likes mystery, adventure, or happens to have a pet cat will love the Shadowed Predator Black Panther Statue. This beautifully detailed animal statue mesmerizes with haunting green eyes, and its stealthy, feline posture.

If that special person on your list enjoys medieval stories and the fantasy genre, she or she will be thrilled to get The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue. This unique, wonderfully detailed medieval dragon makes a classic statement in any backyard.

If your niece likes gargoyles (make sure to ask!), she will love the Detest the Rest Statue. If she doesn't know what a gargoyle is, give the adorable Meerkat Clan Statue.

Enchanting Resin Garden Statues of Mermaids and Other Extraordinary Creatures

Daydreaming Mermaid of Langeline CoveMythical creatures are, by definition, impossible to encounter outside of the realm of imagination. They can be downright common in novels and films that pertain to the fantasy genre but few of us claim to have ever actually seen such creatures as dragons, gargoyles, gnomes, or unicorns. Do that and the general populace is probably going to question your sanity. That said, there is one physical place where extraordinary creatures are celebrated.

That special place is the garden. Although the mermaids, fairies, and other enchanting creatures that occur there aren't going to come to life, beautifully detailed statues of those creatures always lend an enchanting look to the garden. The Daydreaming Mermaid of Langeline Cove Statue is a classic depiction of a Sea Siren with realistic, life-like features. This mermaid looks best when displayed next to the pool, a pond, or a garden fountain.

Our daydreaming mermaid looks even better when complemented with the equally enchanting Mermaid of Langeline Cove Wall Sculpture. This lovely, vibrant mermaid is fantastic wall decor for both the garden and the home interior.

Mermaids are indeed extraordinary and the Ocean's Little Treasure Mermaid Statue is downright adorable but they aren't the only unique creatures in our collection. Browse our selection of extraordinary statues to find sculptures of dinosaurs, hobgoblins, and a realistic Bigfoot statue.
