What to Look for in a Garden Fairy Statue

Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy StatueGarden fairy sculptures have been a popular aspect of garden decor for more than a hundred years. They became especially popular during the Victorian Era and at that time, many people actually believed that the "little people" or "wee folk" visited the garden and frequented the lonely highland moors. Although the majority of people no longer believe in the existence of fairies, they continue to be popular as garden decor, and take life in fantasy stories and more than a few films. As garden decor, fairy sculptures run the gamut from cheap, very average statues to exquisite, high quality sculptures.

The easiest way to find high quality, unique garden fairy sculptures is by shopping at Design Toscano because all of our fairy statues have to meet a certain standard to make it into our collection. This means that any fairy bought from our collection is going to be a beautiful, high quality statue but there are also some other things to consider when searching for the best fairy statue for your needs. If the garden could go for an exquisite, yet powerful fairy, you might want to try the Celtic Fairy's Perilous Perch Garden Statue or the magnificent Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue. These are just two of several detailed, fantastic fairy sculptures in our collection but if the backyard is more in need of something subdued, our lovely Twinkle Toes Fairy Statue might fit the bill.

Ashes, the Gothic GargoyleThe dog days of summer are approaching and that could signal a time to make a few changes in backyard decor.

New and Unique Garden Statuary Gnomes

Bogey Burt Garden GnomeGnome statues are one of the more popular types of modern garden decor. We see those cute, friendly little beings in our neighbor's flowerbeds, many a backyard in town, and in our own gardens. It's easy to see why gnomes are popular because after all, what's not to like about gnomes? They sport brightly-colored clothes, have a cheerful appearance (except for our Zombie Gnombie), and wear funny, pointed hats. In other words, they are quaint, pleasant garden decor. However, the common nature of garden gnomes can also make it tough to find garden gnome sculptures that stand out from the crowd. This is why we carry a variety of garden gnomes that will always make a fun, unique statement in any yard.

Two of our new arrivals are no exception and make a fine gift for anyone who appreciates garden decor. The Bogey Burt Garden Gnome Statue has traded his garden spade for a driver and has the same look of concentrated hope on his face as the most serious of golfers. Bogey Burt will look perfect in the backyard of anyone who loves to walk the greens, on a putt-putt course, or at a country club.

Gezundheit Gunther Sneezing Garden Gnome Statue makes for a cute change from the hard working, smiling garden gnome. The bird on his finger better get ready to fly because it surely will with the huge sneeze coming its way!

Outdoor Garden Water Fountains for an Asian Garden

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainGardens that feature Asian-themed decor can showcase a variety of peaceful, easy-going sculptures. Tranquil, meditative statues are often used because gardens in eastern Asia act as a peaceful place to contemplate, exercise, and relax. They also act as places where people can commune with and appreciate nature via carefully sculpted paths, trimmed trees, and beautiful plantings. In other words, the green space behind the home or place of business has the same purpose as gardens in Europe and North America. However, one of the biggest differences is related to decor.

Asian-themed decor tends to be humble and many statues are depictions of the Buddha or religious figures associated with Asian cultures. Fountains also play an important role but although the Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is nothing short of majestic, it doesn't work well with Asian decor. Save that fantastic fountain for a hotel lobby and buy other, more suitable fountains for the Asian-themed garden. These would be pieces like the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain and the beautiful Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain. Both of these unique fountains add just the right touch of easy going, natural beauty to an Asian garden along with the soothing sounds of gently flowing water. Complement their beauty with the Bamboo Wellspring Pedestal Garden Fountain.

Exquisite Italian Greenmen Statues

Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall SculptureGreenman sculptures can take more than one form. While classic greenman decor looks like a worn, wizened face surrounded by leaves and twigs, they can also take the form of small statues, and even decor reminiscent of Italian carnival masks. The fine details and life-like appearance of the Italian greenman statues are particularly impressive. The Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall Sculpture is one such wall decor item. This unique decor enchants and intrigues with bright, knowing eyes, a hint of a grin, and realistic sculpted feathers. If you have been to Venice, Italy during "Carnevale", you may have seen feathered masks that look very much like this unique greenman.

Michelangelo's Florentine Man is another, impressive, Italian-style Greenman sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same beautiful blend of man and the natural world as the Michelangelo renaissance original. The classic look of this greenman also makes it a distinguished piece for a garden wall, inside the home, or in a place of business.

One of the other Italian greenman statues in our collection is the stunning Vappa, Italian-style Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor is closely modeled after carved faces seen on antique Italian fountains in such beautiful Tuscan cities as Siena, Florence, and Montecatini. It will also be a unique addition to the garden or any of the rooms in your home.

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.

Three Things a Big Foot Garden Statue Can Do for the Backyard

Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree SculptureBigfoot, or Sasquatch, is one of the most searched for enigmas said to haunt the wilds of North America. If you happened to document one of these creatures in the backyard, your place would become immediately famous, as well as being constantly visited by Bigfoot hunters. Although images of Sasquatch have yet to be captured in anyone' backyard, you would come close with one of our statues of the legendary creature. In addition to attracting a Bigfoot hunter or two, here are three other things that a Bigfoot statue can do for the backyard:

  • Unique entertainment for garden guests: How many people can say that they have gone to a party attended by Bigfoot? Put Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture on display and your guests will have a ball.

 

  • Help with marketing: A Bigfoot sculpture will get people talking and make it hard to forget your place. This could help make your home one of the more popular places on the block, and for a business, doubles as invaluable marketing.

 

  • Attract an actual Sasquatch to the yard: Well, maybe not but you never know, especially if you put the Giant, Life-Size Yeti Statue on display.

Fine Chairs for Fantastic Gothic Tables

Charles II Side ChairsA table can simply act as a place to put a plate, a piece of furniture for playing card games, or as an enduring work of art. Gothic-themed tables fulfill all of the above and more by merit of fine craftsmanship, and high quality materials that can easily last for more than a hundred years (and probably much longer). Not to mention, when a beautiful table from our collection of Gothic decor and Medieval furniture is put on display, it adds a marked, distinguished highlight to any room.

However, even stunning pieces like the Lord Raffle's Lion Table need chairs, and the best seats to use are ones that match the decorative beauty of the table. Our Charles II Side Chairs make a fine fit for this distinguished table with ornate, hand-carved mahogany features, and a classic coat of arms on high class Jacquard tapestry. Don't forget to buy a pair of Charles II Armchairs for each end of the table.

The Chateau du Monde Coat of Arms Dining Chair is another seat that works very well with Lord Raffle's Table and other high quality dining tables. These chairs are also carved from solid mahogany and have beautiful coat of arms on Jacquard tapestry. If a simpler chair is more to your liking, the elegant Tudor High-backed Chair is just one of several suitable seats in our collection.

Unique Outdoor Elephant Statues for the Garden

Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden ChairThe elephant sculpture is an animal yard statue that tends to stand out from sculptures of deer, bears, and other wildlife. It became a popular animal garden sculpture during Victorian days, especially because elephants were believed to be associated with good luck when they lifted their trunks high above their heads. Elephant statues still make a fine, classic statement and add a distinguished touch to gardens that host them. In addition to beautiful elephant sculptures for the inside of the home, we also have unique outdoor elephant sculptures.

The Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden Chair acts as a unique, lucky place to sit down and relax at the end of a long day. Garden guests will also enjoy sitting in this one of a kind patio chair, especially when placed right next to the inviting waters of a pool.

Speaking of places to swim, we also have an elephant statue that goes for a swim in your lawn. The In for a Swim Elephant Lawn Sculpture is a detailed, realistic elephant statue that looks as if it is swimming right through the garden. Like the actual elephants that take to water in various parts of their range, our aquatic pachyderm moves through the "water" with a raised trunk and happy eyes.

A Gargoyle Sculpture for Your Place of Business

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyles have come a long way from being scary, intimidating sculptures on Medieval churches and castles. While many still have similar, intimidating features, nowadays, they are used more for entertainment and as unique garden statuary than sculptures meant to frighten away any bad spirits and evil doers. Since gargoyles provoke conversation, certain gargoyle sculptures can also work well as decor for a business.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle will add character to bars, restaurants, and bookstores. He sports the same set of fangs, sinewy frame, and claws as other gargoyles, and takes in his surroundings with a curious look on his face.

Sleepy Goliath the Gargoyle works well as unique decor for a bookstore, coffee shop, or any number of businesses. Clients and customers will certainly inspect the details on this large, snoozing gargoyle. After checking out Goliath, you can put a smile on their faces with the Detest the Rest Gargoyle. "Detest" would rather be left alone and the look on his face is a familiar one for those of us who know people who have the occasional grumpy morning.

Of course, you could also add adorable gargoyle decor to the garden with cute Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture. This littlest of gargoyles can be charming decor in a place of business, inside the home, and out in the garden.

Enjoy a 20% discount on gargoyle figurines and dragons until tomorrow, July 11th.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.
