What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.

Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

Medieval Home Decor for Your Den

The Raven's Perch Wall SculptureWe all need that place in the home where we can have some time to ourselves. That need to get away and relax with a favorite book in the confines of one's own home is especially desired during and just after the holiday season. It's not that we don't like our family and holiday guests, it's just that you sometimes feel the need to be surrounded by your own quiet thoughts, to work on that novel you always wanted to write, or to just self reflect upon what you want to accomplish in the new year.

The room known as the den was pretty much created for this purpose and it very much needs its own set of appropriate decor. This would be artwork, furniture, and other items that provide inspiration and reflect your hobbies and strengths. Historians and aficionados of the fantasy genre will get positive inspiration from the Raven's Perch Wall Sculpture or a Greek Spartan Helmet.

The Raven Sculpture is crafted with realistic detail and will remind you of dark tales written by Edgar Allen Poe and will hopefully inspire you to be as clever as this enigmatic bird. The Spartan Helmet may, in turn, inspire you to be more courageous and determined.

Order these Gothic décor items, objets d'art, garden statuary, or anything else on our site by the end of today, December 17th, and pay nothing for standard shipping costs!

Whether Emmett the Gargoyle Sculptureinterested in giving your decorations some Egyptian flavor or decking the halls with Medieval home decor, we make those and other creative decorating themes possible with high quality, unique items and objets d'art.

This holiday season, get several sets of three Skelly Claus II Ornaments to hang up on the tree, on the front door, and over thresholds.

Buy wall decor like the Celtic Warriors Sculptural Wall Shield. This beautiful, captivating item makes a statement any time of the year but looks simply wonderful when surrounded by garland and other winter holiday decor.

No Gothic theme would be complete without a gargoyle statue or a dragon sculpture. Why not get both for this holiday season? They also look great during every month but make for fun seasonal decor when topped with an elf hat, crown of mistletoe, or draped with lights. Most gargoyles will play the part but cute little Emmet the Gargoyle will be a hit at any party! As for dragons, try dressing up Desmond the Dragon Statue as one of Santa's tiny reindeer.

Serving Tables for Halloween Gothic Décor

Roswell, the Alien Butler Pedestal Sculptural TableAs anyone who has ever thrown a Halloween party knows, the last day in October isn't just about dressing up in a funny or frightening costume. It also involves entertaining guests with games and plenty of Halloween-themed food and drink. Offering spider-shaped cookies and other creative, spooky snacks is always an important addition to the evening festivities but why not go a step further and serve them on Halloween-themed tables?

Guests will love to receive their drinks from Roswell, the Alien Butler. A sculptural pedestal serving table standing over two feet tall, the alien's huge, infinite eyes and gaunt, realistic details will make him the hit of the party. Pair it with a Flying Saucer crashed in the garden for full, Planet X effect!

If looking for something a bit more traditional for Halloween, you can't go wrong with The Contortionist Skeleton Side Table. Bound to be one of most unique skeletons you have ever seen, it keeps a thick, glass tabletop steady with a contorted combination of bony hands and hips. While you and guests are trying to figure out where the hip bone is connected to the leg bone, you will be amazed by the realistic details of this spooky sculpture.

The Majesty of Knight Statues

Medieval Knight of the Round Table Life-Size StatueKnights were part of the ruling class in Europe during the Middle Ages and Medieval times. Granted land and tiles by the kings and queens of their country, in turn, they were also required to help defend the realm if called to do so. They weren't the only people who fought in their respective armies but were easily recognized by their suits of armor and battle steeds. The droves of peasants who were soldiers in medieval armies would have likewise used chain mail and plated armor but they simply could not afford such extreme luxuries. A full suit of armor back in those feudal days would have cost as much as a brand new Cadillac or Porsche in present times. Landless serfs couldn't dream of ever having enough money to even spend on the cheapest helm much less a full suit of armor.

Knights, though, invested in them because it was a matter of life and death. In being regarded as commanders on the battlefield, they were expected to charge into the front lines of enemy forces and in those terrifying situations, armor was nothing less than a necessity. If they didn't go to battle, it still looked pretty smart during jousts and made for a fantastic heirloom. In fact, suits of armor that have been inherited by several European families are still carefully maintained and put on proud display. Although the vast majority of people weren't so fortunate to have inherited a suit of armor, Medieval home decor such as the realistic Knight of the Round Table or  the exquisite King's Guard Statue might even look better than the real thing.

The Most Gothic of Heraldic Gothic Décor

Count Dracula's Coat of Arms Wall PlaqueThe Gothic theme has been around for a long time. It gets soundly beat by the Egyptian decorating
theme in terms of being ancient but since a lot of the Gothic-related decor is inspired by objets
d'art from 1,000 year old castles, that's still pretty old in anyone's book. Back in those feudal
times, a lot of the decor was placed on the stone walls of royal abodes. Some was artwork, much of
the decorations had religious themes, and many pieces demonstrated the importance of the occupant's
ancestry. For example, dramatic heraldic wall art that showed the family coat of arms was a common
sight in the castles and keeps of medieval knights. They had every reason to be proud of and
demonstrate their heritage in an era when bloodline was correlated with power.

Nowadays, a person's ancestry plays far less of a role in life than during the days of jousts and longbow competitions. Nevertheless, heraldic objets d'art still look impressive on any wall whether they come from your family or not. Although people who adore sunlight might not want to be associated
with Dracula, the nightwalkers among us would be proud to put an authentic replica of Count
Dracula's coat of arms
on one of their walls. Put it right next to your favorite gargoyle statue and watch the expressions on the faces of guests as you tell them whose coat of arm is depicted in this simple,
yet bold and powerful wall art.

Live Like Royalty with Medieval Home Decor

16th-Century Italian Armor Sculpture with HalberdThe kings and queens of yore lived in castles where the walls were adorned with tapestries and the halls showcased suits of armor. Busts and paintings of noble ancestors also made up some of the interior decorating while most pieces of furniture were works of art. Way back in those Medieval times, very few people actually lived like that because so few could afford such luxuries. Fast forward to present times though and just about anyone can afford to decorate their home with objets d'art that could easily grace the halls of a Middle Age keep.

Nowadays, you don't even have to place an order with the town blacksmith to get a full suit of armor when you can buy a replica of 16th-Century Italian Armor from Design Toscano. Beautifully crafted with realistic details, it also come with a 7 foot tall halberd! Guests will wonder which noble families you are related to (and if you will be hosting a jousting tournament sometime in the near future).

If the suit of armor in the hall doesn't make you feel like a king or queen, wall art like the Nunsmere Hall 16th Century Battle Collection or the Heraldic Royal Lions Coat of Arms might do the trick.

Get 10% off already reduced prices on Gothic tables and other Gothic Décor when you buy them from today until Friday, June 15th.

Possibly the Most Horrific and Detailed of All Gargoyle Figurines

Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle SculptureGargoyles are meant to be scary. After all, they were supposed to scare all intruders and evil spirits away from the castles and churches they were tasked with protecting. As ugly and intimidating as many of these creatures are, a few stand out for their frightening demeanor. Among those few extra terrifying gargoyles, one in particular could easily win the prize for most terrifying gargoyle ever. The beast of a sculpture that soundly earns this award is Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows.

We should all count ourselves lucky to know that this fantastic piece of Gothic Décor is a work of art that won't come to life. If that happened it would certainly scare away every would-be intruder in a ten mile radius but it would probably also scare away everyone else! Perched on a craggy rock, Scatheus hisses with wide open maw and glares with animalistic rage as he readies himself for the attack. Looking almost like a cross between a dragon and a gargoyle, he raises his muscled, horribly clawed arms and starts opening his bat-like wings that will take him into the air before he swoops down on his prey.

Get this fantastic, frighteningly good work of art from Design Toscano to own the scariest gargoyle statue on the block!

Gothic Décor for the Writer

Blood Dragon Contemplation Sculptural BoxInspiration is a key component of creative writing that takes both writer and reader to other, timeless realms.

No matter where the inspiration comes from, the fruits from that tree of imagination are experienced in the form of the written word. The more the inspiration the better so it's worth it to embellish the homes of writers with objets d'art that nudge the imagination.

Gothic decorations and gargoyle figurines are especially suited for encouraging the mind-springs of wordsmiths. They fit best for those who delve in horror and fantasy but will find a welcome home in the den of  any writer. The Blood Dragon Contemplation Sculptural Box is an excellent addition for a large desk or decorative Gothic tables. Use this beautiful, detailed objet d'art of a dragon embracing a skull to store small objects or simply as a unique sculpture. For further inspiration, you can put the Twin Dragons Sculptural Pewter Pen inside the box or leave it out on your desk for signing letters and writing notes.

After all, you want to show other people what you have acquired in addition to admiring the object on your own. Special items such as Egyptian art and other beautiful objects merit special places for displaying them.

This beautiful, hand-carved column has a rose-colored marble centerpiece that acts as a quality, stable stand for your favorite works of art or Gothic Décor.
