Three Things to look for in Resin Garden Statues

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel StatueAs everyone who has shopped for garden statuary knows, it's a challenge to find appropriate sculptures for your backyard. Although it's fairly easy to go to some big box store and find garden statues, they are usually over-priced, of poor quality, and don't look very nice. Nevertheless, many of us have opted for one of those cheap garden statues anyway because we just didn't know where else to look for them. However, that changes once you discover the wealth of garden statues at Design Toscano. The following are three of the basic reasons why so many people choose Design Toscano for resin garden statues:

  • Quality: You could say that we are really into decor at Design Toscano and that's why we only sell sculptures, furniture, and other items that attain a certain degree of quality. Many of our furniture items are hand-carved from beautiful mahogany, and we offer dozens of realistic animal garden statues. We only sell sculptures that we would use in our own backyards and that's why only offer stunning statues like Fiona the Flower Fairy.
  • Artistic value: Our sculptures, wall decor, and other items are designed by artists. This adds to the unique character and striking nature of items like Boden the Gargoyle Sculpture.
  • Price: We hold frequent sales, offer many of our high quality decor for a discount, and given the quality and unique nature of our decor, probably sell them for much lower than what most people expect.

Tips on Picking Out the Best Gargoyle Statues for Halloween

Gaston, the Climbing Gothic Gargoyle StatueWith so many gargoyle figurines in our collection, it might be tough to pick out the best gargoyles for your Halloween garden. Nevertheless, if you want to put out a truly frightening and unique display for this Halloween season, finding the best gargoyles for the yard will pay dividends in the form of screams, nervous laughter, and fun Halloween memories. Use the following trio of tips to find Gargoyle statues that convert your place into an amazing display of frighteningly good decor:

  • Go for realism: In general, the more real the gargoyle sculpture, the bigger the impact it has on guests. Your Halloween friends will love the look on the face of Socrates the Gargoyle Thinker Statue and will be impressed by its muscled appendages, sharp claws, and big bat wings.
  • Get at least one terrifying gargoyle statue: It's fun to have Halloween decor that provokes laughter and entertains our guests but what would this spooky holiday be without some truly scary decor? This holiday also calls for terrifying decor and Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows plays the part with sharp, pointed features, a menacing glare, and intimidating details.
  • Buy a gargoyle that hangs off a wall: With their bat wings, Gargoyles are far from terrestrial in nature. They actually prefer to perch on the ramparts and hang off of walls. Gaston, the Gothic Climber does this with ease and stares down at guests with an evil grin.

Garden Gargoyle Statues for the Most Frightening Time of the Year

Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle SculptureFor most of the year, gargoyle sculptures play somewhat of a secondary role when it comes to garden statuary.

As with so many other creatures of the night, the weeks leading up to October 31st are when gargoyles look best and these classic scary beasts look simply fantastic when used as Halloween decorations.The right type of gargoyle figurines can give your yard that extra bit of frightening, unique decor to make it one of the most memorable displays in town.

Greet guests with creepy gargoyle statues such as The Legend of Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle and Beelzebub the Prince of Demons to show that this isn't any old Halloween party. After they walk past and admire those excellent intimidating statues, turn your frightening gargoyle display up a notch with the incredible Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle. Scatheus lives up to its name with fierce details, a terrifying face, looming pointed bat wings, and claw-tipped hands.

Halloween might also be the only time of the year when a host of gargoyles are welcome inside the home. Entertain your party guests with the fierce likes of Talisman, Gargoyle of the Eclipse, and cute gargoyles like Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle Sculpture.

Gargoyle Gifts for Halloween

Draga the Gargoyle Vampire StatueIt might still be warm outside but the cool, crisp days of autumn are just a few weeks away. As the weather gets cooler, many of us start to think about putting our favorite garden fairies, gnomes, and other resin garden statues back into storage. However, at the same time, we also need to start thinking about how we are gong to decorate the backyard for one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Halloween is going to be here in the blink of an eye and a big part of that fun holiday is turning the backyard into a temporary display of haunting, frighteningly good decor.

Shock and impress guests with detailed and realistic gargoyles such as Draga the Gargoyle Vampire Statue. Not only does this finely carved fiend watch over your Halloween party guests, but it also wants to bite their necks and shows it with a sinister look and sharp fangs.

Dragon Garden Statues as Rain Spouts

Giant Cross-Toed Dragon Rain SpoutPart of the beauty of garden statuary stems from the ability to provide an actual function in addition to making your place look simply majestic. For example, the backyard is going to look stunning with a fine display of Greek Garden Statues but a couple of outdoor garden water fountains add a further, fantastic dimension to garden decor. The same can be said of creative weather vanes and rain spouts, especially when they come in the form of a dragon. The dragon rain spout continues the Medieval tradition of using gargoyles and dragon sculptures to channel rain off the roofs of cathedrals, castles, and other large buildings. While such functional sculptures during Medieval times were limited to the clergy and nobility, nowadays, such eye-catching Gothic rain spouts are available to anyone who wants to give their home a unique, Medieval touch.

The Giant Cross-Toed Dragon Rain Spout is modeled after dragon gargoyle spouts on Gothic cathedrals and thus shows a similar large, open muzzle, fierce expression, and craggy, crossed toes that grip its base. This stunning dragon statue can either be installed to funnel rain off of the roof or be used as a stand alone dragon statue that guards the entrance to your home. Complement it with such stunning sculptural dragon rain spouts as Ranier and Darian.

Which Gargoyle Statue is Best for Your Garden?

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel StatueGargoyles have come a long way since the days when they were restricted to castle ramparts and the high exterior walls of Gothic cathedrals. Nowadays, many of us display these fascinating statues in our homes, put them up on the roof, or use them as part of a garden statuary collection. The detailed, unique appearance and history of the Gargoyle sculpture may help it fit into a wide variety of decorating themes but no one gargoyle is perfectly suited to every type of garden. In other words, certain gargoyles look better in some gardens than others.

For example, if the decor in the backyard is dedicated to cheerful gnomes and cute bunnies, the ferocious Boden the Gargoyle Sentinel statue is going to seem very much out of place. This fine, classic, intimidating gargoyle and others like it will be much more at home in a backyard that hosts classic garden statues, strong and powerful stone garden angels, and Victorian outdoor garden water fountains.

A much better gargoyle match for gardens that put the focus on cute sculptures would be a set of the hilarious Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures or comical Oscar, the Gargoyle with Attitude. These fun statues are so easy-going (and maybe even adorable) that they wouldn't even be capable of intimidating a house fly.

Give Gothic Décor a Modern Touch with Steampunk Items

Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee TableGothic decorations represent an especially unique type of decor for a number of reasons. They can be replicas of furniture and decor that hail from another very different time, are often associated with tales of horror and suspense, and may depict mythical creatures that are a lot less cuddly than a rabbit, horse, or even a bear. When we follow a Gothic decorating theme for a room, home, or garden, gargoyle figurines start hanging from the walls and flank entrance ways. Statues of knights and other Medieval-themed items make an appearance. Gothic furniture gives living and dining rooms an ornate, noble appearance. In short, your place becomes an abode of fantasy and Medieval charm. Nevertheless, you will make your place look even more interesting by injecting it with a bit of Steampunk.

Although the Steampunk theme is in a category of its own, it makes a very nice compliment to Gothic decor. Steampunk came out of Japanese Anime films that gave characters and their backdrops a distinct, creative blend of Victorian era designs and odd, industrial gadgetry. As far as decorating goes, the results are unique, textured pieces that come straight out of a fantasy world where people with enhanced robotic limbs occasionally battle monsters in Victorian-themed, industrial landscapes. This may explain why such fantastic Steampunk animal items as the Cyber Bat and  Cyber Leopard  make excellent additions to a Gothic-themed room.

Order these and other items from today until tomorrow, August 16th, and save with our Beat the Heat Sale.

The Intimidating Beauty of the Garden Gargoyle Statue

Gargoyle statues aren't really in the same category as a peaceful depiction of a sleeping cherub or a cute little animal garden statue of a rabbit. No, Gargoyles were designed to scare off and intimidate evil spirits and people with malicious plans. Intimidation is an essential part of the Silas the Sentry Gargoyle Sculptureclassic gargoyle statue but that characteristic also lends the sculpture a certain degree of beauty.  Much of that beauty is found in the fine details shown by such high quality gargoyle statues as Argos and Boden; two striking Gargoyle sentinel statues. These two foot tall gargoyles make a beautiful Gothic statement with their wonderfully detailed wings, talons, muscled appearance, and classic French gargoyle faces. Use them to flank the entranceway to the backyard or house and guests will feel as if they are walking into a place where Medieval fantasy reigns.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle is equally intimidating and beautiful. Silas demonstrates a frightening, intimidating, and realistic display of personality with its upturned face and accusing glare. With its tensed muscles and crouched position, this fine gargoyle seems ready to leap into the air and use its sharp claws to defend the castle at any moment.

Enjoy free regular shipping on unique resin garden statues and other items from Design Toscano from today until Sunday, August 4th. No minimum purchase required!

Gargoyles in the Garden, Greenmen on the Trees, Oh My!

The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set - LargeThere are many ways to decorate the garden. Plant enough flowers and prune the vegetation and the backyard becomes filled with natural decor. Put several stone garden angels and replicas of breathtaking classic garden statues on display and your green space will begin to resemble an authentic Victorian garden. Buddha statues and other Asian-themed sculptures can turn a generic backyard into a fantastic Chinese or Japanese themed garden, and the right set of animal garden statues will add a wild, natural touch to even the most urban of yards. As exciting as these garden decorating ideas sound, they still might not be very appealing to fans of Gothic decor. Fortunately, when you shop at Design Toscano for backyard statuary, there are plenty of sculptures that give the backyard a wonderfully Gothic, Druidic, or mystical touch.

Gargoyles can be used to flank the entranceway to the garden or back door to the home with absolutely regal results. With its open fanged mouth, glaring eyes, and crouched posture, the Argos Sentinel Statue is perfect for this purpose. The fun Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures, on the other hand, look more at home guarding a bed of flowers.

Another essential statue for a Gothic-themed garden is the greenman sculpture. These mystical statues have been used in Europe for hundreds of years and fantastic decor such as the Oak King Wall Sculpture continue to add a mysterious, magical touch touch to modern day gardens.

Entertain Garden Guests with Fantastic Gargoyle Figurines

Legend of the Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle SculptureWe use garden statuary for a number of reasons. A beautiful stone garden angel can transform an ordinary backyard into a classic place of peace. Realistic animal garden statues add a wild, beautiful touch to a backyard with carefully crafted details. Resin garden statues can also be used to augment the personality of your personal green space while reflecting your interest in the fantasy genre, a belief system, or love of the outdoors. Statuary can of course also be used to entertain guests and certain gargoyle statues accomplish this in a frighteningly easy manner.

Garden guests won't help but notice the Legend of the Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle Statue. The sly grin on the devilish face of this modern gargoyle shows that it is clearly up to no good. Resting on its haunches, it looks ready to hop through your yard on large, clawed feet, and take flight with long, bat-like wings. You can further entertain your guests by telling them that this gargoyle statue is inspired by unexplained sets of strange, hopping  gargoyle-like prints that have shown up around Cambridge, England on several occasions.

Beelzebub, the Prince of Demons Gargoyle Statue, is another sculpture destined to be a topic of conversation. As this detailed gargoyle sits atop a Gothic plinth, it ponders its next move with an evil grin.
