The Unicorn as an Outdoor Garden Sculpture

Mystical Unicorn of Avalon StatueGarden statuary can take the form of angels, gnomes, animals, gargoyles, and just about anything that fits into a garden decorating theme. In fact, the versatile nature of resin garden statues means that we can even decorate the yard with strange, mythical creatures. Detailed sculptures of lions, foxes, and horses lend the garden a beautiful, realistic look, but if you are looking for something a bit more magical, put sculptures of dragons and other mythical creatures on display.

The Unicorn is one such creature and statues of this most magical of animals will give the yard a fantastic, enchanting touch. Although no one has ever seen a live Unicorn, in Medieval times, stories of this beautiful, one-horned Equine creature were taken so seriously that it was featured on more than one Coat of Arms, and can still be seen on the official Royal Coat of Arms for the United Kingdom. It also makes a lovely, elegant animal statue for any yard. That pristine, magical beauty is perhaps best displayed by the Mystical Unicorn of Avalon Sculpture. Complement this fine animal yard statue with the smaller yet appropriately named and lovely Enchanted Unicorn Sculpture.

Outdoor Animal Statues for a Tranquil Garden

Proud Mallard Duck StatueThe backyard is meant to be a place of peace and many of us escape to that personal oasis after a long week of work to sit back with a cold drink, or take a dip in the pool. We can emphasize the tranquil nature of the backyard with certain types of resin garden statues, including sculptures of easy-going animals. Sheep are some of the most easy-going animals around, and the Life-Size Sheep Statue captures that peaceful essence with a detailed, tranquil look. This sculpture also mimics the live sheep that grazed the lawns of Victorian estates and old colonial homes.

Statues of ducks can also lend a peaceful look to the yard. The Proud Mallard Duck Statue shows the same colorful, fine details as a live drake Mallard. This animal yard statue makes a quaint statement near the entrance to the garden or when prominently displayed in the middle of the yard.

If the garden could use a more exotic yet equally peaceful animal statue, you might like Tian Shan, the Asian Panda Sculpture. Tian Shan shows the same striking, familiar black and white pattern and wide-eyed, cute face as the Giant Pandas that reside in the bamboo forests of central China.  

Buy $75 or more in fine decor from Design Toscano and pay nothing for regular shipping.

Three Benefits of a Super Cute Meerkat Statue

Meerkat Family StatueSome animal garden statues are cute, others are adorable, and then there are Meerkats. These lovely little creatures are so cute that they deserve a category of their own. They are simply "super cute" and statues of this funny little animal bring certain benefits to the backyard. Three of those benefits are:

  • Entertainment for garden guests of all ages: Buy the Meerkat Family Sculpture and just watch the reactions on the faces of kids and all of your garden guests. This realistic animal sculpture shows the same cute posture, and mischievous masked appearance as the live, wild animals in their native Kalahari Desert.
  • Heart warming, cheerful decor: Few animal statues can match the easy-going, unique, cheerful look of a Meerkat. Its big, imploring eyes remind us that the garden is a happy place meant for relaxation. That adorable look is wonderfully demonstrated by the Kalahari Meerkat Out of Hole Statue.
  • Give a unique, warm welcome to garden guests: Put the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture near the garden gate to welcome all of your guests in fun, adorable, authentic Meerkat fashion. Not to mention, you will also be welcomed by a trio of fun-loving Meerkats every time you walk through the gate to the backyard.

Bright Colored Dragon Garden Statues

Red Devil Dragon SculptureStatues of dragons often show the same shades of dun and gray as those of gargoyle garden statues. Although such stone-colored dragons can give the yard a mysterious, distinguished look, dragon sculptures can also sport bright, eye-catching colors. One such brightly colored dragon is the aptly named Red Devil Dragon Sculpture. The fine, intimidating details and shades of red make this an excellent addition to any collection of dragon statues. It can also be used to match the color of autumn foliage, especially the crimson and scarlet hues of Maple leaves.

The Dragon of Lynton Stowey is another colorful scaled beast. This beautiful dragon is painted with shades of shining metallic amethyst and silver, and is highlighted with a few faux jewels. Display this fine winged dragon on a pedestal, as an objet d'art on antique replica furniture, or use it as eye-catching desk decor.

Lysander, the Five-Headed Dragon Sculpture is one of the more menacing dragons from our collection. This one foot tall olive-colored dragon sculpture has powerful clawed hands, five fiercely fanged heads, and taloned wings. Use it as unique, autumn garden statuary or display it as part of your interior Halloween decor. Either way, this exquisite dragon sculpture will make quite the impression.

Too Early to Buy Resin Garden Statues for Halloween?

Roswell, the Alien SculptureWe are two weeks into September but Halloween is closer than you think. Although the holiday itself doesn't happen until the end of October, most people start decorating long before that fun, spooky holiday. In fact, if you start to put up Halloween decor during the first week of October, you have less than a month to buy new decorations. Given the hectic schedules of modern day life, that time frame translates to a week or less and with that in mind, it's definitely not too early to shop for Halloween decor.

This year, save time and boost your backyard decor by kicking off the Halloween shopping with a Bigfoot Statue. This signature Design Toscano decor will give your yard a unique, hair-raising look. In fact, our statue is so realistic that it might keep some kids and party guests from making it to the door of your home.

Roswell, the Alien Sculpture is another signature item that will add a unique, fun touch to your Halloween display. Welcome guests with this fantastic decor near the front door, or put it under the shade of a backyard tree to make guests wonder if visitors from far out of town are coming to the party!

Beautiful, Functional Medieval Home Decor

Jacobean Court Cupboard BuffetDecor for the home and place of business comes in many forms. There are interesting contemporary pieces, stunning Egyptian art, and other themes to choose from. However, if the place in question is best suited to decor with a classic, refined look, it will look fantastic with Gothic tables and replicas of antique European furniture. Ornate, regal, Medieval-themed furniture items act as wonderful classy decor for any home but are even better when they can be put to use.

For example, the fantastic Lord Raffles Lion Throne Chair is always fit to be simply admired but this exquisite seat is also meant to be used. Reserve this fine, hand-carved solid mahogany chair for guests of honor or use it as your own, personal throne. Complement it with the Lord Raffles Lion Leg Gothic Stool to pamper your feet with a royal rest.

Stunning Egyptian Tables for the Office

Egyptian Wings of Horus Grand ConsoleWe might not think about it so much but we spend nearly as much time in our places of work as we do at home. If you don't travel for work, you probably spend 40 hours or more per week in the same office environment. Although it can't compare to home, the office ends up being somewhat of a home away from home whether we like it or not. This is one of the main reasons why it's so important to decorate the office with decor that is uplifting, cheerful, and makes it easier to come in to work.

Egyptian-themed tables can act as stunning office decor, and lend a bright, classy look to a place of business. The Egyptian Wings of Horus Altar Grand Console makes a powerful, unique statement no matter where it is put on display. This beautiful, sculptural table shows the same bright colors as antique works of art from the tombs of the Pharaohs, and is decorated with real gold leaf.

The Three Heads of Tutankhamen Sculptural Glass-Topped Table is another striking, functional work of Egyptian art that never fails to make a regal impression on guests and clients. Put this beautiful piece on display in the office and you will feel as if you are working in a place reserved for royalty.

Complement Fall Colors with Animal Garden Sculptures

European Red Fox StatueAlthough it still feels like summer in much of Canada and the USA, cool fall weather is just around the corner. That refreshing fall air is accompanied by football, crisp apples, and beautiful autumn foliage. Maples, Sumac, and other deciduous trees go from yellow to bright crimson red, and most gardens see some fall colors before the leaves fall from the branches. Although fall foliage acts as natural decor all on its own, the backyard looks even better when the right animal statues are used to complement the autumn palette.

The European Red Fox statue is beautiful at any time of the year but its realistic colors are at their best during the fall. The handsome shades of chestnut are a wonderful complement to a carpet of red, green, and yellow leaves, and the piercing, bright eyes of this sculpture help bring it to life.

The Wild Tom Turkey Grand Scale Animal Statue is another fine fall sculpture. This beautiful animal statue is a detailed, accurate portrayal of a male Wild Turkey and shows the same range of colors and patterns as the actual birds that roam the woods and fields of North America. Put this beautiful animal yard statue in the garden and it will fit right in with the fall foliage mosaic.

Use Resin Garden Statues to Change the Atmosphere of Your Home and Business

Strike a Pose Zen Yoga FrogEvery once in a while, the house needs a change. Leave that old decor or paint job in place long enough and it starts to look as old as it feels.

When the decor feels "tired", it's time to change it to improve the atmosphere of a home or place of business. Needless to say, it's especially important to change the atmosphere of a place of business because it can affect customers.

If your place could use a bit of creative color, put the Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog on display. This unique animal yard statue is a cheerful piece that also works well as a fun indoor statue. Another indoor statue that works well to change the atmosphere of home and place of business is the Venus of Arles Sculpture.
