Animal Garden Sculptures as Fine Interior Decor

Madame and Monsieur EscargoA lot of animal statues look great in the garden but there are quite a few that also look just as nice inside the home. At this time of the year, certain animal statues can be especially good for lending a cozy, cheerful touch to the interior of a home or business. After lending color to the garden, take the Madame and Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set out of storage and put them in the sun room. These fun animal statues help cheer up the darkest and most dreary of winter days, and also work as fine decor for a place of business.

Animal decor like the Black Forest Bear Pedestal Table can also blend function with creative beauty. This fun furniture lends character to parties, the office, and the den. When the weather turns warm, it will also be the life of the party in the backyard.

To give the interior of the home a cute, cozy touch, you can't go wrong with Carotene the Bunny Rabbit Garden Statue. This adorable bunny may have been caught red-handed with its meal of choice but it's far more guilty of being the cutest creature in the garden. When it's cold outside, it looks just as cheery and nice inside the home.

Dark and Beautiful Gothic Decor

Dragon's Wrath Sculptural ChandelierGothic decorations aren't for everybody but those of us who appreciate this unique genre of decor are enchanted by the dark, exquisite beauty. The dark themes shown by these items remind us of favorite books, films, and games that bring us to another time and place. We appreciate the fine, sharp details shown by many Gothic items, and the efforts and imagination required to create stunning, unique decor like the Dragon's Wrath Sculptural Chandelier, and the Balkan Vampire Blood Cross Statue.

We also like the fact that Gothic furniture is available. Classic, Victorian-themed metal crosses adorn the distressed wooden cabinets and sides of the dark and beautiful Gothic Sanctuary Five Drawer Chest to give it an ancient, storied look. The perfect complement to this fine piece is the equally Gothic and distressed Gothic Sanctuary Side Table.

Dark and beautiful items are also available to decorate the tops of these furniture items. The Shadowcrested Tomb Guardians Dragon Chalice is a beautiful, detailed ceremonial cup that features twin dragons. Although it isn't recommended for use as an actual drinking cup, it makes splendid, eye-catching, Gothic interior decor. It also pairs well with a number of other exquisite items including the Dragon Strike Illuminated Sculpture.

Pay nothing for regular shipping when buying $75 or more in resin garden statues, and other unique items at Design Toscano until today, January 14th.

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.

Benefits of Basil Street Gallery Décor for Any Business

Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee TableDecor has a number of functions. It can be used in the backyard to lend a bit of character to our personal green oases. We use interior decor to help turn an apartment or house into a personalized home. Decor can also be used for illumination, and furniture like the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table can help you serve drinks in unique style. However, fine decor can also be successfully used outside the home, especially in a place of business.

When we walk into a store, hotel, or restaurant, we want to feel welcomed. We are more likely to make a purchase, enjoy our stay, or at least talk about the place of business if we feel "at home", are treated like royalty, or are pleasantly surprised and entertained by our surroundings. The right type of decor helps make this happen, and some of the best decorations for this purpose can be found at Basil Street. The Peacock Goddess Torchiere Floor Lamp is a unique and elegant way to provide lighting for a store, restaurant, or hotel. To make an even bigger impression on customers and guests, pair it with the Entwined Mermaids Sculptural Floor Lamp.

Clients can also be given a royal, classic welcome with decor like The Rose Garland Sculptural Pedestal and the Venus of Arles Sculpture.

Lions, and Tigers, and Outdoor Elephant Statues, Oh My!

Lioness with Cub StatueBig animals like tigers, lions, and bears are known as megafauna, and their large size and impressive stature also turns them into "mega-decor". Put a realistic statue of a lion in the backyard and you lend the garden a wild, noble look. Grace the yard with a beautiful orange, black, and white sculpture of a royal Bengal Tiger and it gives the place an exotic, wild, and powerful touch. Put an elephant statue in the garden and you give the backyard a classic, Victorian look along with, supposedly, a big dose of good luck.

The Lioness with Cub Statue is one of the most impressive animal sculptures in our collection. Not only does this sculpture show the muscled power and beauty of a majestic African Lion, it also captures the tender care a mother cat shows for her kitten. This fine sculpture also makes a noble statement in the courtyard of a restaurant or hotel.

The beauty of a mother cat and baby is also shown by the Life-Size Resting Bengal Tigress and Cub Statue. This incredibly realistic, beautifully detailed statue is a high quality addition to any collection of backyard decor.

The Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue is another very realistic depiction of majestic megafauna. This high quality animal yard statue is a wonderful way to announce the arrival of spring.

Three Benefits of a Big Animal Yard Statue

Mombasa, the Garden GiraffeAnimal garden sculptures come in sizes that range from small items for the backyard and interior of the home, to grand-scale statues like big Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe. Although animal statues of any size can give the backyard a lovely touch, the following are three benefits of putting big animal sculptures in the garden and place of business:

  • Centerpiece decor: Every backyard looks better with a centerpiece item because it can give the yard character and a majestic look. A big animal statue like the Unbridled Power Equestrian Horse Statue works well as centerpiece decor on account of its size and striking, realistic appearance.

 

  • Always impressive: A detailed depiction of an animal is always going to impress garden guests, clients, and anyone who looks at them. Mesmerize guests with the graceful power and beauty of the Grande Black Panther Statue.

 

Want to have a chance at winning a $200 gift certificate for anything on the Design Toscano site? To enter the contest, write a review by January 15th about your favorite animal garden statues or other beautiful decor from our collection.

Buy the 16th-Century Italian Suit of Armor Sculpture with Halberd and you can take $100 off.

The High Quality Garden Statues that Bring Dinosaurs to Life

Apatosaurus Scaled Dinosaur StatueDinosaurs may have been gone for more than 60 million years but the long absence hasn't put a dent in their popularity. Ask any kid about dinosaurs and you will likely hear about the massive size of the Brachiosaurus, amazing prehistoric creatures like the Stegosaurus, and that most famous king of the dinosaurs, T. Rex.

You don't have to be a kid to like dinosaurs either. People of all ages are fascinated with the "terrible lizards" and high quality sculptures can help bring them to life. The Apatosaurus Scaled Dinosaur Statue is a highly detailed, beautiful depiction of a famous dinosaur formerly known as the Brontosaurus. Although its name was eventually changed, the Apatosaurus continues to be one of the most classic, and frequently depicted dinosaurs.

The Stegosaurus Scaled Dinosaur Statue is another high quality representation of a famed dino. Many paleontologists believe that the plates on its back were used to find a mate and/or regulate body temperature, and were brightly colored. This is shown by this fine sculpture as well as a realistic, beak-like mouth.

Although these scaled statues are realistic, high quality depictions of dinosaurs, folks in search of larger dinos will be happy with our huge, "Jurassic-sized" sculptures, including the eleven foot tall Jurassic-Sized T-Rex Statue!

Three Tips for Decorating a Meerkat Statue

Meerkat ClanThe Meerkat just might be the cutest animal on the planet. That's a pretty big statement but it's hard to argue with an adorable, little, furry creature that has wide, imploring eyes, and stands on its hind legs. Although statues of the Meerkat hardly need anything to make them more adorable, it's always fun to decorate them! These are a few tips for highlighting the beauty of Meerkat statues:

  • Colorful scarves: Meerkats always look cuter with a touch of color, especially a scarf on a cold, winter day. Put a red or blue scarf on an indoor Meerkat to give it, and the home, a cozy look. Each of the members of the Meerkat Family Sculpture deserves a cute scarf.
