Save on New Interior Gothic Decor

Grim Reaper and Orb of Death StatueA Gothic-themed garden fits right in with fall weather. As the leaves fall from the trees, greenmen statues become more obvious and seem to laugh in delight. Gargoyle Garden Statues also seem to take charge with stark, intimidating features and long fangs. However, Gothic statues aren't just limited to the outside of the home. There are also plenty of Gothic statues that look wonderful when displayed inside the home.

The Grim Reaper and Orb of Death Statue is a 14 inch tall, faceless dark angel that adds character to any room. Put this unique sculpture in the library, next to your favorite reading chair, or on your desk to remind you of the mysteries of the fantasy genre.

Complement the dark look of the Grim Reaper with the dark comedy shown by the Bride and Doom Married Couple Skeleton Statue. The skeletons in this fun little statue show that death couldn't keep them apart. In fact, it kept them together and by their toothy grins, they seem pretty happy with that prospect. This unique interior decor makes a fine engagement gift for special couples and anyone with a dark sense of humor.

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.

A Stone Garden Angel for Every Backyard

In God's Grace StatueAngel statues aren't just meant to be displayed in old cathedrals and Victorian gardens. They can also be displayed with charm in the gardens of hotels, restaurants, and any home. It all depends on the type of angel sculpture you are looking for and the decor that is already on display. For example, the cute and realistic In God's Grace Angel Statue isn't going to look right in a backyard decorated with Gothic decor but might look perfect in a garden that features religious decor or friendly garden fairies.

There are plenty of angels that also happen to look right at home in a Gothic garden including the hauntingly beautiful Monteverde Angel Statue, and the Serene Solitude Angel Statue. These fine statues aren't limited to Gothic-themed gardens and can also be used as high quality Halloween decor, or as unique garden statuary decor in gardens that feature classic or elegant sculptures.

However, if you would rather have an angel that is simply majestic, we also have several stunning angel statues to choose from. The beautiful Angel of Ravenna Religious Statue is a fantastic, 61 inch tall angel sculpture cast from an authentic, 19th century angel statue found in an Italian cathedral. The Angeli di Luce Statues were also cast from angel sculptures from an Italian cathedral and show their "heritage" with an absolutely majestic appearance. 

Buy any of the garden angel statues in our collection by today, August 13, and enjoy a 20% discount.

The Cherub as a Garden Angel Statue

Topsy & Turvey the Cherub Twin StatuesThere are many types of angel statues. Angels can be large, awe-inspiring sculptures that grace the interior of massive cathedrals. They can be winged, robed beings that grieve and mourn for loved ones who have passed on. They can also evoke feelings of faith and joy, or take the form of innocent babes. This last type of angel is one of the most interesting. Unlike their larger, dramatic counterparts, cherubs are playful, sweet little winged beings that embody the naturally angelic beauty shown by babies.

Their easy-going nature and natural beauty also makes the cherub statue suitable, beautiful decor for any garden. The Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues are one foot tall, detailed Putti statues with a playful appearance. Put these unique, happy cherubs near a fountain or next to a flowerbed for a garden with a cheerful look. Complement these fun cherub sculptures with the curiosity and realism of the Life's Mysteries Cherub Statue.

Cherubs are also perfect for adding adorable decor to the garden and the Cherubs d'Amour Statue is no exception. This endearing sculpture captures the innocence and shyness shown by darling children. You could also blend function with beauty and savings by purchasing the "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue.

Buy any of the cherubs or other angel sculptures in our collection until August 13, and take 20% off.

Take 20% Off Any Stone Garden Angel Statue in Our Collection

Ascending Angel SculptureStatues of angels have been an important aspect of religious decor for centuries. Majestic depictions of those fabled heavenly beings decorate thousands of churches and share the ramparts of Gothic cathedrals with the wildest of gargoyles. However, during the Italian Renaissance, angel sculptures also became popular as garden statuary. Over the years, that trend continued to grow and is why we find stunning angel sculptures on the grounds of Victorian estates, and in many a modern-day backyard.

If your garden could use an angel sculpture, today is one of the best days to buy this classic decor because from today until August 13, all of our angel sculptures are on sale for 20% off the regular price. The Ascending Angel Sculpture is a dramatic, elegant work of art that adds a classic touch to any backyard. This is also a beautiful, regal piece that works as classic decor for a restaurant or hotel.

With eyes closed and hands held together, this angel statue is perfect inspiration for prayer and positive thoughts. You could also complement these and other angels statues with beautiful angel sculpture wall decor like the Resting Grace Sitting Angel and the fantastic Santa Croce Wall Frieze.  

Buy any of these and other angel statues in our collection today until August 13, and take 20% off.

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!

Beautiful Weathervanes as Functional Garden Statuary

Strutting Rooster Full SizeAt Design Toscano, we carry far more than unique Bigfoot Statues, dozens of high quality stone garden angels, and beautiful furniture. Our collection also includes such functional decor as fountains, drain spouts, and weathervanes. Weathervanes in particular are wonderful decor for any home. These fun items hearken back to old fashioned times before any weather forecasters or electronic gadgets could tell us if a storm was headed our way. Instead, we had to rely on almanacs, educated guesses of community elders, and a good, strong weathervane.

The weathervane had to be strong enough to stand up to the biggest gusts of wind, hail, and winter snowstorms, and this is why they were crafted from metal. Our weathervanes follow that classic tradition, are fully functional, and will last for decades (if not centuries). Not to mention, they also look fantastic! Our Windblown Wicked Witch Metal Weathervane is beautifully detailed and is available as a garden stake or as a weathervane for the roof. For even spookier decor, get the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane!

We also have several beautiful copper weathervanes in our collection. The Strutting Rooster Full-Size Copper Weathervane shows the same classic rooster form found on old farmhouses in rural New England. If the house or garden would look better with a weathervane that has a more modern look, you might like the Celebration Wine Bottle Copper Weathervane.

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.

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

Remember Loved Ones with a Garden Angel Statue and Garden Marker

Always in our ThoughtsWe remember loved ones in a number of ways but one of the most intimate is with garden decor. Although you could put beautiful garden statuary on display that reminds you that special person, there is also garden decor designed to pay tribute to loved ones. Such remembrance decor can take the shape and form of angels, benches, and other statues. Garden markers in particular are a suitable, easy type of remembrance decor to put on display because they are just the right size and demeanor. They are also inscribed with endearing messages that remind us of how loved ones have touched and affected our lives.

The Mother's Garden Memorial Garden Marker is shaped like a heart, etched with a detailed flower, and inscribed with words that connect the loving bond shared between mother and child. Like other memorial garden markers, this cast stone item will last for decades if not centuries. Our garden markers also range from the simple yet sweet Always in our Thoughts Angel Wing Marker to the larger and more elaborate I Thought of You with Love Angel Cast Stone Memorial.

Of course, you could also go with any number of angel statues including memorial angels like the beautiful Angel of Grief Monument Statue, and the Divine Memories Angel Sculptural Monument.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Religious Outdoor Statues for a Christian Home

When adding decor to the backyard, we tend to use garden statuary that is a reflection of the things we enjoy, our attitudes, and our beliefs. For a Christian home, this decor can take the form of works that features phrases from the Bible, a white dove carrying an olive branch, sculptures for outside that feature a number of Christian symbols, and other types of decorations.

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenOur Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture is a wonderful, high quality, Smiling Christ statue that adds a cheerful touch to any garden. Put this happy, endearing sculpture in a prominent place as a reminder of your Christian faith. Complement this fine statue with a classic Holy Family Sculpture. This beautiful garden decor is closely modeled after similar Holy Family statues that have graced the peaceful gardens of Italian churches and estates for hundreds of years.

Many Italian gardens also display Christian-themed sculptures in miniature grottos and other quiet corners of the backyard. Our Meditation Grotto of Sorrento evokes the same sense of wonder with fine, hand-painted details.

No Christian-themed garden is complete without a stone garden angel. The Angel of Ravenna is one of many fantastic garden angels in our collection. Like the beautiful Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue, it was directly cast from antique statues found in an Italian cathedral.

Three Reasons for Using Garden Décor with a European Flair

European gardens are well known for hosting beautiful garden statuary, sculpted hedges and topiary, and stunning fountains. Large, extensive gardens in major cities also display a variety of antique sculptures, some of them from the Victorian era, others from older times. There are several reasons for using similar decor in your own garden, including the following three reasons:

Ascending Angel SculptureA classic, classy appearance: Few garden statues are as distinguished as a classic stone garden angel or other sculptures that would look right at home in the garden of an old European estate. The fantastic Ascending Angel Sculpture is just one of several classic angels in our collection.

 

  • They add character to any backyard: Even one European-style garden sculpture will transform the character of your backyard. Put statues like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, or a fine replica of the famous Venus de Milo sculpture in the yard and your place takes on an entirely different, more distinguished appearance.

 

  • Wonderful resin statues for a great price: Although the statues in our collection are fit to be put on display in large estate gardens throughout Europe, they are far more affordable than any antique sculpture. Our Marcellus Sculpture, a high quality replica of a Roman era work of art, is one such statue.
