Illumination is an essential part of every home and business. However, that doesn't mean that lighting has to be restricted to efficient bulbs and a few ordinary lamps. Lighting can be as creative as you like and the New Arrivals section on our site demonstrates this with several elegant items. One such classy piece is the Elegant Slumber Art Deco Illuminated Sculpture. The soft, romantic lighting on this sculpture blends in with the floral details and lovely figure of a sleeping maiden. This beautiful sculpture is a perfect addition to a bed stead, or quiet reading room.
New illuminated art also takes form with the Majestic Maiden Art Deco Illuminated Sculpture. This striking decor pays homage to the art decor era with symmetry, elegance, and praise for the female form. Soft lighting is provided by the cape worn by the lovely figure in this sculpture.
Illumination can also come in the form of exquisite candlesticks. The Malbark Castle Gothic Floor Candelabra acts as the perfect place to host a favorite set of Gothic candles. This striking new decor would look right at home in the Teutonic castle it is named after. Unlike candelabras that need to be hung from the ceiling, this beautiful Gothic-themed item can be easily set up and placed anywhere in the home.

Folks 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.

Such statues remind us that our backyards are sanctuaries from the stress of everyday life, and that the simple things are often, the best things.
Peaceful sculptures come in a variety of shapes and forms. Gnomes play their part, especially the "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue.

Decorations 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.
