How to Shop for Egyptian Art

Cleopatra Neoclassical ChaiseEgyptian decorations are typically stunning, and clad in gold, jet black, and lapis lazuli blue. They can add a spectacular touch to any home or business and many pieces are worthy of being centerpiece decor. However, shopping for Egyptian decor is another matter. One could travel to Egypt to buy any number of Egyptian-themed souvenirs but even then, you would probably end up paying a mint for overweight luggage and extra bags. Although we can also find some Egyptian-themed pieces in stores at the nearest mall, the selection is usually limited to a few, less than average quality items.

Instead of spending days or even weeks to find one or two Egyptian-themed items, it's far easier and less expensive to shop for the best Egyptian home decor at Design Toscano. Just go to our site, click on "Egyptian" near the top of the page (one of the "popular theme" categories), and browse our big collection of wonderful Egyptian decor. You will find everything from stunning, royal furniture like the Cleopatra Neoclassical Chaise and Wings of Horus Egyptian Altar Side Table to high quality interior decor like the Egyptian Goddess of Halwan Wall Sculpture. We also have a large collection of spectacular Egyptian lamps and candlesticks to help illuminate your place with ancient class.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of these and other high quality decor on the Design Toscano site until May 27th.

Egyptian Home Décor for Every Home

King Tutankhamen's Sculptural Table LampEgyptian-themed decor tends to have a regal, royal appearance. This is no coincidence because Egyptian decor usually shows scenes and colors also shown by decor found in the tombs of the pharaohs. However, despite their striking, royal appearance, Egyptian-themed items aren't restricted to decorating the halls of mansions and large estates. While you can find beautiful Egyptian-themed works of art in many a big house, there are also plenty of items that look right at home in small apartments, or any average place of residence.

The King Tutankhamen's Sculptural Table Lamp is easy, sculptural lighting that makes a striking addition to any room. Use this functional decor as a beautiful reading lamp in the library or next to the bed. Complement it with the striking King Tutankhamen Wall Sculpture.

The Egyptian Urn Carrier Maidens Sculptural Vase is another high quality piece that makes a distinguished addition to any home, especially for people who have an appreciation for African art. This distinctive urn is modeled after an early 20th century work of art by Egyptian revival artist Pierre Lenoir and can be paired with a number of beautiful Egyptian-themed pieces including the Eye of Horus Egyptian Vase and the Egyptian Eye of Horus Offering Vessel.

Browse our large collection of wonderful Egyptian decorations to find the best Egyptian items for your home for the best prices.

Egyptian Decorations to Store Your Treasures

Royal Bastet Egyptian BoxIf you love high quality decor (and who doesn't), there's a good chance that you also have a collection of kick-knacks, objets d'art, and and other personal treasures. We love to showcase most of those items but we also have a few choice pieces that we keep to ourselves. These are the treasures that we only show to trusted friends and that we store in safe places. It's also nice to store those special objects in something worthy of the purpose. In other words, we don't want to put those treasured pieces in a plain, old cardboard box or off in a dusty, dank cupboard. Such special items merit storage in decorated vases, urns, and boxes and Egyptian-themed decor has the bright colors and regal appearance perfect for hosting your personal treasures.

The Grand Anubis Lidded Urn is a fantastic, foot and half tall decorated urn that can be used as a place to store treasures or simply displayed as a treasure all on its own. It adds a bright golden touch to a library or reading room and can be complemented with other Egyptian-themed treasure boxes like the Royal Bastet Egyptian Box and the Pharaoh's Chariot Treasure Box. Each of these beautiful boxes is carefully crafted with Egyptian-themed details and royal hues.

Find Fantastic Animal-Themed Décor in the Basil Street Gallery

Heads Above Giraffe Floor LampInspiration for decor comes from many sources. The ancient Egyptians based much of their art on their belief system, daily royal life, and the wildlife that occurred in the valley of the Nile. Sculptures of Greek deities were also based on a belief system while Greek statues of fauns and other mythical creatures came from their legends and folktales. Despite the passing of hundreds of years, Egyptian art continues to be popular in many parts of the world, and many a garden boasts a statue of a Greek deity.

Another source of inspiration that has endured since people made paintings on cave walls is that of the animal. The variety and beauty of life on this planet has given rise to countless paintings, sculptures, and wall decor. Several beautiful animal-inspired works are featured in our Basil Street collection, including the realistic Leopards Lair Sculptural Wall Frieze. This unique sculptural wall decor mirrors the behavior of an African Leopard at rest.

Another animal that has inspired many a work of art is the Indian Peafowl. Glad in shimmering blue, green, and bronze, it almost looks too extravagant to be real. Our Peacocks in Paradise Statue captures the incredible beauty of these amazing birds and is a regal addition to home and business.

At Basil Street, we also have animal-themed decor that blends lighting with animal sculptures. The Heads Above Giraffe Floor Lamp is one such unique decor item.

Enjoy free shipping on purchases of $75 or more at Design Toscano from today until Sunday, April 20th.

Grand Scale Egyptian Home Décor

Life Size Horus StatueEgyptian decorations range from small statuettes and replicas of Egyptian wall art to large statues of Anubis and other Egyptian deities. Although small-sized Egyptian decor adds a classic, beautiful touch to the office, restaurant, and home, the grand scale sculptures are much more similar to the works of art that graced the pyramids, temples, and tombs of the ancient Egyptians.

The Egyptians who built the pyramids and other monuments placed a lot of focus on large-scale works of art. Several statues have been found that are much bigger than a person, many of the ancient columns are absolutely massive, and of course, the pyramids at Giza are so big that they can be seen from space! In keeping with ancient Egyptian traditions, we offer several grand scale Egyptian sculptures as part of our Egyptian Grand Ruler Collection. Like the other statues in this collection, the Life-Size Horus Statue atop a Temple Column Mount is more than seven feet in height! Put this majestic, hand-painted statue on display to give all of your guests something to talk about.

Cleopatra's Egyptian Nubian Guard with Urn is another grand-scale statue destined to turn heads. Like so many other beautiful Egyptian-themed works of art, this sculpture is carefully painted in striking jet black and faux gold. Pair it with the Grand Gilded Egyptian Sphinx Statue for a truly magnificent display of Egyptian decor.

Submit a review and photo of your favorite Toscano decor and have a chance at winning $200!

New and Beautiful Egyptian Art

The pharaohs haven't ruled for thousands of years but the art forms that were developed at that time endure to this day. Artisans continue to create and craft new Egyptian decorations that use the same bright blues, gold, and deep jet black as the original pieces. Those items also feature many of the same Egyptian deities and symbolism. One such beautiful little sculpture is the "Isis, Egyptian Goddess of Beauty" Statue. This fine statue is carefully crafted to show the details of her feathered arms and cobra skin dress, and is painted by hand in bright golds, carnelian red, and other striking colors shown by Egyptian art. This sculpture makes a fine gift and desk decor. Isis looks even better when paired with the "Osiris and Hathor" Deities of Ancient Egypt Statues.

New Egyptian decor in our collection also includes striking functional art like the Egyptian Urn Carrier Madiens Sculpture. This beautiful decor is a replica of an early 20th century Egyptian Revival work of art and is ideal functional decor for anyone who has an appreciation for the beauty of the Egyptian art form. Pair it with the striking "Egyptian Eye of Horus" Wall Sculpture to add an additional ancient royal touch to your home or place of business,

Stunning Egyptian Art

Royal Egyptian Cheetahs Sculptural Glass-Topped ConsoleThe ancient Egyptians developed art forms that were both interesting and elegant. In fact, Egyptian decorations are so distinctive and appealing that people enjoy them more than 3,000 years after the pharaohs walked the banks of the Nile. One of the reasons why Egyptian decor continues to be so popular is because it looks absolutely regal. Much of the decor is clad in bright golden colors with jet black highlights and makes a royal statement no matter where it is put on display. Once such wall decor item is the Tutankhamen at Hunt in his Chariot Wall Sculpture. This elegant wall decor shows the same hunting scene depicted on a feathered fan discovered in the tomb of the famous boy king.

The Grand Anubis Lidded Urn showcases the bright colors and imagery of ancient Egypt. It adds ancient regal character wherever it is put on display but looks best when shown on stunning Egyptian furniture such as the Royal Egyptian Cheetahs Sculptural Glass-Topped Console. These items are certainly stunning but the pinnacle of royal Egyptian decor just might be a replica of King Tutankhamen's Egyptian Throne Chair. When you put this splendid throne in your living room, it will certainly take center stage.

Make the Dining Room Distinguished with Gothic Tables

Effingham Gryphon Library TableThere is certain decor suited for every room in the house. For example, you wouldn't want to put a cozy couch in the bedroom or brightly colored, culinary-themed decorations in the den. The right type of decor also lends a certain look to the rooms where they are put on display. You might want to see a simple set of table and chairs for a dining area in a cottage or cabin but most of us would rather sit down to a slightly more elegant table in the home. If you would like to take dining room decor a step further and turn that part of the abode into the most distinguished place in the home, buy a beautiful gothic table.

A Gothic style table lends a truly royal look to any home because most are modeled after antiques found in the old storied halls of Victorian estates and European castles. The Effingham Gryphon Library Table is a solid mahogany furniture item with beautiful carved motifs. Whether this table is put to use in the library or as a distinguished dining table, it always make for stunning functional decor. Or, you could leave the Effingham Gryphon in the library and save the dining room for the majestic likes of the Lord Raffles Lion Table. This mahogany work of art is seven feet in length and makes a distinguished statement in any room of the house.

Three Ideas to Get More Out of Your Egyptian Décor

The bright colors and ancient splendor of Egyptian decorations help them take center stage just about everywhere they happen to be displayed. However, even though Egyptian-themed items need to do little more than look fantastic, many of these stunning pieces can also be used for other functions. The following are three ideas for adding a bit of extra function to Egyptian decor:

King Tutankhamen's Life-Size Sarcophagus Cabinet: Surprise guests by opening this big sarcophagus to show them your collection of favorite movies, music, and video games.

King Tutankhamen's Life-Size Sarcophagus Cabinet

Neoclassical Egyptian Revival Chair: Chairs were meant to be used even if they look as absolutely stunning as this one. Use a set of these beautiful, artistic mahogany chairs for everyday dining or save them for very special occasions. No matter when you use them, they will make guests feel like royalty.

Neoclassical Egyptian Revival Chair

Temple of Karnak Egyptian Occasional Table: As is common with all of our Egyptian art, this striking item could easily be used to add a breathtaking Egyptian touch to a room and nothing more. However, it looks even better when used for serving after dinner drinks, or for displaying Egyptian-themed busts. Even if you don't use it as a table, make sure to use this high quality decor as a storage space for secret tomes, favorite board games, and other treasures.
