Save 20% on Fantastic Trompe l’oeil Furniture from Design Toscano

Renaissance Accent ChairFurniture can and should be works of art. Why buy a plain, old humdrum seat when there are luxurious and regal options like the Renaissance Accent Chair? Why settle for a basic, boring side table when you can decorate the home with beautiful antique replicas like the Saffron Hill Console Table? There are a lot more possibilities for artistic furniture than a lot of folks realize, including intriguing "trompe l'oeil" pieces. "Trompe l'oeil" roughly translates to "fool the eye" and that's precisely what such furniture pieces do.

The Nettlestone Library Ensemble is one of our most popular trompe l'oeil items in our collection. At first glance, this fun table looks like an interesting bookcase replete with antique tomes. However, a closer look reveals a beautiful round table with matching, half-moon seats. A hidden compartment can also be used for storing prized glassware, or your favorite objets d'art.

The Nettlestone table pairs particularly well with The Lord Byron Wooden Side Table. This fine side table is likewise carefully crafted to look like a bookshelf that hosts several large books. Upon close inspection, guests will see that the book is actually a side table with double doors and a drawer.

Enjoy 20% off trompe l'oeil furniture, any of our beautiful garden statuary, and unique décor until February 26, 2015.

Stunning New Bronze Garden Statuary

Fishing Heron in ReedsBronze statues have been a standard aspect of classic gardens for literally thousands of years. Bronze as a sculpting medium is still used to this day because it results in lovely statues that can easily last for centuries. We love bronze sculptures and that's why we have added several new bronze garden statues to our collection. These new bronze additions include statues of animals, beautiful piped pieces, and a statue or two with children.

One of the new bronze heron statues to make it into our collection is the Fishing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue. Made in the traditional lost wax method, this beautiful bronze heron is an excellent addition to a pond and is piped to spout water from its bill. It is also perched on a bronze log with reeds for additional realism. This sculpture makes a nice pair with the Standing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

The Steep Climbing Ducks Cast Bronze Garden Statue is another beautiful item that can be piped for a pond. This stunning colored bronze will be especially admired by duck hunters and anyone with an appreciation for the outdoors.

Our new Rodeo Dreams: Cowgirl with Horse Cast Bronze Garden Statue Set will also be enjoyed by those who love the outdoors, and going on trail rides through the high Rockies.

Big Animal Garden Statues for a Big Backyard

Mombasa, the Graden Giraffe StatueFolks who are fortunate to have their own backyard are lucky indeed. They can reserve part of that green space for vegetables and flowering plants, have the opportunity to install a pond or beautiful outdoor garden water fountains, and can relax by the pool on hot summer days. However, folks with a huge backyard are even more fortunate because they might have sufficient space for a soccer field, volleyball court, and plenty of room for a big display of garden statuary.

Greek garden statues can lend a classic look to one corner of the big backyard, the opposite corner can host a grove of trees decorated with greenmen and a Bigfoot statue, and garden fairies can lend an enchanted touch to the flowerbeds. Although grand-scale animal statues will work in any yard, they look most at home in the biggest of backyards.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue punctuates the yard with an exciting, naturally artistic look. The kids will love it and pretend that they are on an African safari. Once the safari is over, kids of all ages can relax in the "paws" of the amazing "Sitting Pretty" Oversized Brown Bear Statue with Paw Seat. They will also love the Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue.

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.

Find the best selection of gargoyle statues, dragons, and other Gothic decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.
