New Gargoyle Gifts and Garden Gnomes

Gomorrah, The Gothic GargoyleThese are exciting days at the warehouse! We just got several new decor items and can't wait to showcase them in our gardens and backyards. Among the new items are a pair of gargoyles that make fun gifts for anyone with an appreciation for Gothic decor. Whether displayed on a garden wall or a library shelf, "Gomorrah, the Gothic Gargoyle Statue" is a classic, pint-sized beast that makes a fun, classic statement.

Our new "Nag's Head Pub Gargoyle" Statue is a good gift for anyone with a bar, and appreciation for the fantasy genre or Medieval decor. Not nearly as intimidating as other gargoyles, it looks like this Celtic creature might raid the bar instead of protecting it!

Kids of all ages will love this impressive decor, especially when used as centerpiece decor for a business. The new "Bavarian Oktoberfest Skeleton Gnomes" also make a unique statement in any yard!

Gothic Decor is More than Statues of Gargoyles and Dragons

Medieval Knight Iron BookendsThe Gothic genre is well known for decor that includes dragon statues, dark heraldic wall art, and gargoyle figurines but there is a lot more to this decorating theme than most people realize.

Entertain Guests with these Dragon Garden Statues

Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn SculptureGardens can act as a place to showcase beautiful garden statuary, for relaxation after a long, stressful day, or to cultivate vegetables, herbs, and beds of bright flowers. However, most of us also use the backyard to entertain guests, especially during the summer. It's hard to stay out of a beautiful backyard when the weather is warm, and even more so when we can share that lovely green space with family and friends. This summer, augment the entertainment factor with unique garden statues, and treat guests to a creative display of garden decor.

Dragon statues always make an impression on garden guests, especially when the sculpture looks as if it is swimming through the lawn. The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue does just that with detailed, scaled coils, and an intimidating stare.

To show guests that dragons can also be adorable, surprise them with the cute: "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue. Shy, little Babel would rather take a siesta in the summer sun and smell the flowers than cause trouble. Pair this lovely little dragon with your favorite garden gnomes and garden fairies for full cute effect.   

Guests can also be served in medieval style with striking dragon-themed tables like Hastings, the Warrior Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural Table, and The Subservient Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural Table.

What to Look for in a Garden Gargoyle Statue

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel SculptureIt's easy to pick out some types of resin garden statues. There are beautiful animal garden statues for every decorating taste, angel sculptures big and small, and an exquisite range of garden fairies. However, when it comes to gargoyle sculptures, some people have a tough time picking out even one statue for the garden. This mostly stems from lack of experience with gargoyle statues and just knowing what to look for. Finding a high quality gargoyle for any garden is actually much easier than most people realize. These are a few things to look for:

  • Details: When it comes to gargoyles, beauty is found in the details. For example, although the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue isn't going to win any beauty contests, it mesmerizes with carefully crafted, symmetrical features, sharp claws, and a frighteningly life-like appearance.

 

  • Creativity: In addition to fine details, look for gargoyles that would make heads turn if perched on the ramparts of a cathedral or castle. Put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on display and guests will be doing double-takes when they see this fine statue. Like many a classic gargoyle, Talysus has an intimidating, muscled appearance, and a fierce look. However, this backyard beast also has long, outstretched wings and a touch of realism that will provoke more than one set of goose bumps.

 

  • Class: A classic, high quality gargoyle statue gives the garden a touch of medieval class. The Cathedral Gargoyle Statue accomplishes this with ease.

Find the best gargoyle and dragon decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on orders of $75 or More through Sunday, April 26th.

a real unique lamp

Dragon Strike Illuminated Sculpture

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

What can I say? I have not seen the likes of such a lamp anywhere else. It actually is a very nice lamp. It is as pictured. It goes well with the medieval furniture that I am incorporating into the house. I have filled the bottom of it with coins as the dragon guards its stash.

Blend Function and Exquisite Flair with Sculptural Gothic Tables

Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee TableCertain types of furniture do a lot more than provide guests with a place to sit or eat.

This striking table is perfect for homes with a strong appreciation for the fantasy genre and Medieval-themed works of art.

The Lord Langton's Castle Glass-Topped Sculptural Table is another, amazing Gothic-themed furniture item that will leave a long-lasting impression.

This chair is a terrific find

The Abbey Gothic Revival Chair: Set of Two

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

...I found another special find. I bought a pair of these Gothic Revival Chairs and have not one regret. These chairs are perfect for the medieval look. The deep carved arches are attractive. The chairs are sturdy and attractive. There is one surprise. These chairs, just like the original chairs of long ago, are comfortable to sit on without a pad. It's all in the craftsmanship. If you can use this style I would recommend. But don't quickly buy all of them as I have just ordered two more.

Eerie, Cheery Gothic Decor

Detest the Rest GargoyleDecorations 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.

another win for designtoscano

The Medieval Mace Stool

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Looking at footstools available on the internet, I am glad I ran across this mace stool. It is the best find for a masculine design that I have found anywhere. I bought one and am ordering another. It is well made: sturdy and attractive. It is a good buy even at regular price; but, of course, I wait for the sales.

one solid and beautiful bench

Historic Mahogany Monk's Bench

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I received this monk's bench today. It looks like it has been hand carved with deep designs on mahogany wood. It goes perfect in the breakfast room and compliments the medieval re-styling throughout the house. Beautiful and solid, even the seat. It sits well. I never thought I'd enjoy so much styling the house with medieval and Gothic themes. Wish I had done it sooner. I had scouted around in many places for a find like this and found some of the same style at much higher prices. Very pleased! Can't wait to get the York Gothic monk's bench. Bring it on Toscano. You amaze me.

Save Money on Dragon and Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle SculpturesSome people are fine with a garden that plays host to a few, easy-going gnomes and some cute animal garden statues. There's certainly nothing wrong with that but some of us like to change up our garden statuary display from time to time by featuring a gargoyle sculpture or two. Contrary to what some people might have you believe, gargoyles aren't just meant to perch on the ramparts of old French cathedrals. They can also lend a unique, eye-catching touch to the garden, especially when paired with dragon statues.

We are big fans of beautiful dragon and gargoyle sculptures because we are well aware of the unique look they give to a backyard or even a place of business. Put a gargoyle like Silas the Sentry near the back door and guests will either feel as if they are walking into a medieval mansion, a place of fantasy, or wonder if they should enter in the first place. For less intimidating gargoyle statues that are also on sale, you might like the cute little Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set.

However, no gargoyle scene looks complete without an appropriate dragon. We have more than one fine dragon statue on sale including Dread, the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture, and the striking Desmond the Dragon Sculpture.
