Centerpiece Egyptian Home Decor

The ancient Egyptian sculptors and painters who created beautiful works of art would never have guessed The Grand Ruler: Life-Size Anubis Sculpturethat their style would still be popular three thousand years in the future. When they sculpted huge, imposing statues of Anubis, the gatekeeper of the underworld, how could they have imagined that similar sculptures would act as centerpiece items in twenty-first century homes?

Every home or business that showcases an Egyptian decorating theme needs a centerpiece that stands out from other Egyptian decor. The grand scale statue of Anubis easily accomplishes this with stunning, authentic detail and by standing more than eight feel tall (!). Carefully painted in faux ebony, gold, and silver, Anubis commands attention with his muscular frame and imposing height. With scepter in one hand and Ankh in the other, he looks ready to judge any and all who dare enter your home.

If our grand scale statue of Anubis looks a little too intimidating for your tastes, an authentic replica of King Tutankhamen's Egyptian Throne Chair commands just as much attention. Modeled after the boy king's actual 3,500 year old throne, careful attention was paid to detail to craft a replica that matches the original throne's size, sculpted appearance, and colors.

Both of these high quality items look fantastic in a hotel or African-themed business. Find these, the best in Egyptian art, and high quality resin garden statues at Design Toscano today.

Every Home Could Use a Pedestal or Two from the Basil Street Gallery

French Neoclassical Griffin PedestalThe ancient Greeks and Romans had some great ideas when it came to decorating. They adorned their temples, gardens, and olive groves with fantastic, lifelike garden statuary. In fact, beautiful, realistic statues continue to look right at home in modern day gardens. They also gave us a variety of architectural ideas, the marble bust, and made use of pedestals to put their beautiful statuary on display.

The concept was a simple one and ends up accentuating anything placed on top of it. Basically, by placing the statue or other object on a decorative column or pedestal, it increases its height, and displays it in a way that can't be missed. The pedestal helps to showcase the importance of anything placed on it and works well for everything from a flower vase to prized Egyptian decorations.

Pedestals for every theme can be found in the Basil Street collection, including the French Neoclassical Griffin Pedestal. It's a fantastic piece all on its own but looks best when used for displaying plants next to entranceways or for adding a touch of green to the corners of rooms.

The Venetian Doges Solid Marble Column is so beautiful that it might outshine the marble bust or flowers placed on top of it!

Save 20% on these, other pedestals, and Egyptian art in the Basil Street Collection when ordering them by Thursday, September 13th!

Bring Light to the Home and Office With This New Egyptian Home Decor

Male Egyptian Telamon SconceLighting is an essential element for any type of room. In addition to providing light needed to see what's in the room, it can also play crucial roles for accentuating decorating themes. For example, we like bright kitchens because we need to see what we are doing and the extra light helps turn it into a cheerful place. The dining room, on the other hand, differs in being a room that requires less light, especially on romantic evenings. Lighting can also be used to help put your favorite decor on display and can provide a warm welcome to clients at an office, hotel lobby, or other business.

The objects used for lighting aren't just limited to providing a place for a light bulb either. They can and should be leveraged for decoration and those who appreciate Egyptian decorating themes will love the Male Egyptian Telamon Sconce. A beautiful wall sculpture all on its own, this lighting fixture was inspired by ancient architecture used to provide support for temples of the pharaohs. Detailed and painted in faux gold and ebony, this decorative sconce is a beautiful addition to the halls and walls of any elegant home or business. It looks even better when two of these Egyptian decorations mirror each other in an entrance hallway.

Buy this lighting decor, beautiful garden statuary, garden fairies, and anything else on the Design Toscano website from today until Tuesday, September 4th and get a 20% discount!

Why Decorate with Medieval Home Décor?

The Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee TableLooking for a decorating theme can be a tough, time-consuming process. While you want your place to look good and contribute to a certain type of atmosphere, making the hoped for theme happen also depends on the availability and cost of the decor. Medieval decorations have a lot of personality but you don't exactly find them at the local furniture emporium. Fortunately, thanks to the Internet and Design Toscano, you don't even need to venture into a furniture store to search for medieval decor. Just head to our site and you will find a treasure trove of quality, stunning chairs and tables fit for modern day kings and queens.

The following are a couple of reasons why it's very much worth the while to decorate with Medieval-themed items:

  • They make you feel like royalty: Decorative chairs and exquisite furniture that could have graced the halls of bygone noble families should make you feel like royalty because very similar pieces were used by aristocrats.
  • Gothic tables are works of art: Items like the Lord Raffle's Lion Leg Coffee Table are stunning works of art. The beautiful carvings on the sides and legs of this table harken to the castles and manors of lords and ladies.

Get 20% off Gothic furniture and Egyptian tables from now until Monday, August 27th!

Egyptian Tables Look Almost Too Good to Use

Royal Egyptian Cheetahs Sculptural Glass-Topped ConsoleThe Ancient Egyptians created an amazing number of sculptures, monumental tombs, and forms of writing that are works of art all on their own. Although the days of the pharoahs are long gone, their legacy lives on in Egypt's amazing museums and world-class ruin sites. Their artwork also lives on in paintings, sculptures, and other objets d'art that millions use to decorate their homes. Functional Egyptian-inspired art is also popular but some pieces look so absolutely stunning that it almost seems strange to put them to use.

Take the Royal Egyptian Cheetahs Sculptural Glass-topped Console as an example. Two beautiful, golden-colored statues of cheetahs sitting on their haunches provide the legs for an absolutely exquisite table. Although you could use it to serve drinks, it works better as a platform to exhibit prized Egyptian art and statues on account of its artistic beauty.

The Egyptian Wings of Horus Grand Altar Console is likewise much more suited to displaying prized works of art than using it to as a stand for the television or a stereo system. Use it to display a bust of Queen Cleopatra to show your appreciation for gorgeous Egyptian artwork.

Save on these unique items and quality garden statuary with the Beat the Heat Sale. From now until Friday, August 17th, you get the following discounts:

Save $10 on purchases of $75-$99.99

Save $20 on purchases of $100-$199.99

History comes alive

I teach and Toscano reproductions bring history to life. I recently bought three swords. As we studied England, students couldn't imagine holding one of these heavy swords, handling a horse and fighting.
Egyptian miniatures were so much more stimulatiing than photos as we created our own pyramids. My Buddahs and Hindu statues inspire multi-cultural discussions.
I rotate items from the classroom to my home so they do double duty as home decor!
Thank you for such wonderful and affordable classroom aids.

Egyptian Decorations to Light Your Home and Business

Queen Nefertiti Sculptural Floor LampBefore the light bulb was invented, the nights were dark indeed, especially inside the home. Oil lamps, torches, candles, and even gas lamps provided much needed light to some city streets and homes but they could never compare with modern lighting technologies. When used on their own, light bulbs are so bare that they are more like an "anti-decoration". However, hide them with the right type of lamp and light can be shed from beautiful sculptures that bring essence to hallways, rooms, and doorways.

Whether your home or business is decorated with an Egyptian theme or not, Egyptian lamps will provide lighting with exquisite beauty. Blending ancient art and culture with modern day function, lamps like the Queen Nefertiti Sculptural Floor Lamp act as a veritable work of art. Guests and clients will be talking about this beautiful piece for days after their visit while you use it to light your home or place of business.

While the Nefertiti Sculptural Lamp is too big for tables, you can still combine intricate Egyptian art with function in the form of the Egyptian Torch Offering Table Lamp. A true work of art inspired by Egyptian revival works from the 1920s, this beautiful detailed lamp will be treasured for generations.
