New Gargoyle Gifts and Garden Gnomes

Gomorrah, The Gothic GargoyleThese are exciting days at the warehouse! We just got several new decor items and can't wait to showcase them in our gardens and backyards. Among the new items are a pair of gargoyles that make fun gifts for anyone with an appreciation for Gothic decor. Whether displayed on a garden wall or a library shelf, "Gomorrah, the Gothic Gargoyle Statue" is a classic, pint-sized beast that makes a fun, classic statement.

Our new "Nag's Head Pub Gargoyle" Statue is a good gift for anyone with a bar, and appreciation for the fantasy genre or Medieval decor. Not nearly as intimidating as other gargoyles, it looks like this Celtic creature might raid the bar instead of protecting it!

New gnomes have also made it into our collection. Standing almost four feet in height, "Gottfried, the Gigantic Garden Gnome" Statue is destined to be the biggest gnome on the block, if not the entire town. Kids of all ages will love this impressive decor, especially when used as centerpiece decor for a business. The new "Bavarian Oktoberfest Skeleton Gnomes" also make a unique statement in any yard!

Gothic Decor is More than Statues of Gargoyles and Dragons

Medieval Knight Iron BookendsThe Gothic genre is well known for decor that includes dragon statues, dark heraldic wall art, and gargoyle figurines but there is a lot more to this decorating theme than most people realize. Medieval items, antique replica furniture, and other forms of classy decor are also frequently categorized as Gothic decorations. Although our collection certainly includes several fine statues of dragons and detailed gargoyles, we also carry a variety of Medieval-themed gifts, accessories, and unique statues.

Friends and family who love the fantasy genre will also love the Medieval Knight Iron Book Ends, and the Cotswold Cathedral Jewel Box. They will also like it when you serve drinks on the Medieval Norman Warriors Coaster Set at your next party or showing of a favorite fantasy movie.

Medieval and Gothic accessories also include the beautiful Twin Dragons Sculptural Pewter Pen, and the Knight's Templar Helmet Desk Accessory among other unique items. Complement those Medieval accessories with such Gothic-themed garden statuary as the Celtic Circle of Life Sculpture and the Mystic Night Ravens Statues for the interior of the home.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of our Gothic items and Medieval home decor until May 8th.

What to Look for in a Garden Gargoyle Statue

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel SculptureIt's easy to pick out some types of resin garden statues. There are beautiful animal garden statues for every decorating taste, angel sculptures big and small, and an exquisite range of garden fairies. However, when it comes to gargoyle sculptures, some people have a tough time picking out even one statue for the garden. This mostly stems from lack of experience with gargoyle statues and just knowing what to look for. Finding a high quality gargoyle for any garden is actually much easier than most people realize. These are a few things to look for:

  • Details: When it comes to gargoyles, beauty is found in the details. For example, although the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue isn't going to win any beauty contests, it mesmerizes with carefully crafted, symmetrical features, sharp claws, and a frighteningly life-like appearance.

 

  • Creativity: In addition to fine details, look for gargoyles that would make heads turn if perched on the ramparts of a cathedral or castle. Put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on display and guests will be doing double-takes when they see this fine statue. Like many a classic gargoyle, Talysus has an intimidating, muscled appearance, and a fierce look. However, this backyard beast also has long, outstretched wings and a touch of realism that will provoke more than one set of goose bumps.

 

  • Class: A classic, high quality gargoyle statue gives the garden a touch of medieval class. The Cathedral Gargoyle Statue accomplishes this with ease.

Fun Gothic Decor for the Garden

Hobgoblin of Harwich Manor Garden StatueThere are many ways to decorate a backyard, and some of the more unique garden statues in our collection can lend a fun touch to any garden. Even certain Gothic statues and decor fall into this category and help give the garden an easy-going appearance. The Odin Tree Stump Sculptural Table is always a fun way to serve a cold drink on a hot summer day, or a mug of spiced cider during the cool of the night. Bring this unique greenman table out for nights that feature story telling, or when you feel like treating guests to unique, functional decor.

The Hobgoblin of Harwich Manor Garden Statue also lends a fun, Gothic look to any backyard. Inspired by English tales of hobgoblins that protect the home and garden from evil trolls and mischievous pixies, this unique sculpture gives the backyard an imaginative, magic touch. Pair it with the fun Detest the Rest Gargoyle Statue to add a bit of dark humor to your collection of resin garden statues. For more dark humor, put The Dweller Below Garden Sculpture near a pond or next to a flowerbed tended by garden gnomes.

Gothic Decor or Classic Garden Statuary?

French Pleurant StatueIt can be a dilemma. We realize that yes, the garden does need new statuary but do we buy a new Victorian-themed sculpture, another angel, or maybe even a gargoyle? Although gothic sculptures and classic statues might seem to be at two ends of the decorating spectrum, actually, such statues can have more in common than we think. Instead of settling on a classic statue, or a sinister gargoyle sculpture, why not get both?

Several gargoyles fit right in with classic sculptures and more than one classic item looks right at home in a garden that features a dragon statue, gargoyle, and other Gothic items. One such garden sculpture is the beautiful, yet haunting, French Pleurant statue. The intricate folds and faceless appearance of this decor give it a striking yet organic, natural look. Display this work of art next to a vibrant flowerbed or in the same field of view as your dragon sculptures.

Although the Odin Greenman Tree Stump Sculptural Table provides a fitting touch to yards decorated with Gothic items, it will also be the hit of the party in backyards decorated with classic statuary. Likewise, the Angel of Patience Sculpture and other angel statues act as inspiration no matter where they are put on display.

Massive Mystic MushroomsThe search for new garden statuary is on but which resin garden statues do we go with? There are classic statues, majestic angels, and more animal yard statues to choose from as well as garden gnomes, gargoyles, and garden fairies. Contemporary statues are another option, especially when the garden is in need of a new look.

Give your garden gnomes and garden guests something to talk about with the "Massive Mystic Mushrooms" Statues. These unique sculptures punctuate the garden with their size (nearly four feet tall), and eye-catching appearance. They also work well when paired with other fantasy-themed statues, including the Crash Landing Flying Saucer Alien Spacecraft Statue.

Tempest, the Metal Garden Trellis Fairy is a wonderful, artistic means of helping your garden grow. Put this trellis-fairy next to your favorite flowerbed, or wherever you would like to see this unique item naturally decorated with climbing ivy.

A contemporary Venus might also be what the garden needs. The beauty shown by such modern statues as the Contemporary Venus Sculpture and the Venus of Pietrasanta by Carlo Bronti makes a statement in any yard.

Take 20% Off Greenmen, Gargoyles, and Detailed Dragon Statues

Bacchus Wall SculptureStatues for the garden can be more than a cute animal yard statue, or classic sculptures that would look right at home on the grounds of a Victorian estate. Gargoyles, greenman sculptures, and other types of Gothic decor also have their place in a summer garden, and we are pleased that our collection is graced with several of these mysterious statues.

Greenman decor is a wonderful way to give the garden a bit of personality. The Bacchus, God of Wine: Greenman Wall Sculpture makes for fun, classic wall decor, whereas the Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture puts an enchanting face on a favorite tree. These and other greenman decor always make nice additions to backyards that are solely decorated with sculptures.

Gargoyle statues lend a classic, contrasting touch to every type of garden. Although many people categorize gargoyles as Gothic sculptures, they also look right at home in a Victorian garden, or a backyard decorated with cute animal statues. Gargoyles fit in because there are cute and funny statues like The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set, climbing gargoyles like Catgoyle on the Loose!, and powerful, intimidating sculptures like the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount off these, dragon sculptures, and any of our garden statues when purchased by April 17th, 2015.

Favorite Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Nike of SamothraceWe love to collect unique garden statuary. Whether a sculpture is a detailed, beautiful replica of a classic statue (like the Nike of Samothrace) or puts a face on your favorite tree (see the Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture), we love to add beautiful items like these to our collection. Exquisite gargoyles also make it into our collection, some of which are immediate favorites. The following are a few of those favorite gargoyle sculptures:

  • Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture: Emmett might be the littlest gargoyle on the block but he is also one of the most popular. This cute, shy gargoyle captures everyone's attention with his demure, yet classic appearance.

 

  • The Spitting Gargoyle of Notre Dame Statue, Historic Direct Casting: The spectacular, Parisian cathedral of Notre Dame is home to the most famous gargoyles on the planet. One of those classic creatures is the "Spitting Gargoyle". This famous sculpture shows its contempt for unwelcome visitors by sticking its tongue out as it gets ready to spit on them. Thanks to special permission from the French Ministry of Architecture, we were able to make a direct cast of this most classic of gargoyles.

Fierce Little Guardian!

Abbadon Gargoyle Statue

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

The detail of this fierce little gargoyle statue is excellent - he looks very fierce! He's a little darker than he appears in the catalog, so be aware of that. The quality is excellent and he makes a good addition to either indoor or outdoor decor.

Gothic Decor for a New Home

Steampunk Skull Containment VesselSpring is a time for change, and for some of us, the changes include an exciting move into a new home. A move represents the perfect opportunity for a fresh start with interior decor, including a chance to try out different decorating themes. One such theme puts the focus on Gothic items and makes it possible to go all out with dark, fantastic decor, or simply highlight the home with a bit of dark magic and mystery.

Gothic indoor statues are an easy, eye-catching means of giving a room some Gothic flair. Use the Steampunk Skull Containment Vessel to store your favorite objets d'art, or put it in a prominent place for full, Gothic effect. When guests ask if it's supposed to be a skull of a robot or a cyborg, you can tell them that it actually pays homage to the Steampunk genre; a blend of Victorian style, industry, and dark invention. This unique decor pairs especially well with the Replica Deep Sea Diver's Helmet.

Whether you want to turn your home into a place of dark fantasy or touch it up with a bit of Gothic style, gargoyle figurines complete the look. A big, classic creature like  the Florentine Gargoyle Statue is the perfect way to welcome guests into a Gothic home.

Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.

Buy exquisite gargoyle sculptures for great prices at Design Toscano.

Eerie, Cheery Gothic Decor

Detest the Rest GargoyleDecorations with a Gothic flair aren't typically associated with happy, bright, or cute decor. On the contrary, most Gothic items are dark, mysterious, and remind us of other, more exciting realms. That said, depending on your sense of humor, there are several Gothic decorations capable of provoking smiles and a laugh or two. The Detest the Rest Gargoyle Statue is dark humor at its best. Unlike other gargoyles, this poor little guy is too shy and grumpy to make the slightest attempt at intimidation. Since it looks like he could use a friend, put him near garden fairies or a cute animal yard statue. If displayed inside the home, maybe the cat will curl up next to him. "Detest" looks even better when paired with Oscar: The Gargoyle with Attitude.

Speaking of gargoyles, the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles might be the cutest of their kind. These fun little sculptures are a unique, cheerful addition to the work desk, a fireplace mantle, or your favorite spot for displaying one of a kind works of art. Get "The Black Widow Spider" Statues to give them some equally unique company.

We also have a variety of Gothic wall decor items to fit any decorating need including the Zombie Gothic Wall Sculpture, and the "Fangs of the Vampire" Cast Iron Bottle Opener.

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.

Three Good Arguments for Gargoyle Figurines

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyle garden statues can be fitting decor for any backyard. Given the intimidating, Gothic look of a classic gargoyle, that might not seem feasible for gardens decorated with cute animals and other cheerful, benign sculptures. Nevertheless, although some of the more frightening gargoyles would certainly look out of place in a garden filled with adorable animal garden sculptures, there are other, very cute gargoyles that fit the bill. The following are three arguments that show why Gargoyles are more versatile than many people realize:

 

  • A classic, regal look: Yes, many gargoyle statues give the garden a classic, royal look because they were traditionally limited to the ramparts of cathedrals and castles. They were high class decor meant to scare off all things evil, and can still provide an intimidating, Medieval touch to any garden.

 

  • Unique, beautiful sculptures: This is one of the easiest arguments to make for getting a gargoyle sculpture. A statue like Gaston, the Gothic Climbing Gargoyle is one of a kind wall decor meant to entertain any garden guest. 

Purchase $75 or more in garden statuary, and anything else at Design Toscano until January 14th and get free regular shipping.
