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.

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.

This sale ends tomorrow, July 11th, and cannot be combined with other offers.

Dragon Garden Statues and Dragon-themed Decor

Mystic Dragon Avenger StatueThe dragon is one of the most spectacular and mysterious of mythical creatures. These factors, along with the legends that accompany them, also turn dragon statues into striking, stand-out decor for any backyard. Put a dragon in the yard and your place will look a bit more like a regal keep than an average home. It will show guests and neighbors that you appreciate the fantasy genre, Medieval decor, and ancient tales.

The Mystic Dragon Avenger Statue is a powerful, striking dragon sculpture that looks best when displayed at the entrance to the backyard. It pairs well with the regal Grande Dragon Sentinel Statue, another stunning dragon statue that depicts a fierce, clawed, scaled dragon clutching a Medieval shield.

Although the dragon sculptures mentioned above focus on the fierce qualities of these legendary, intelligent beasts, dragon statues can also take on a fun, cute appearance. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue will make a nice pet for your garden gnomes, and "Mayze, the Dragon Protector of the Orb" Statue is a fun, fantasy-themed piece to put in the backyard.

Functional Knight Statues

Knights of the Digital RealmThe Medieval days are long gone but aspects of those feudal times are celebrated to this day. Gothic tables and replicas of Medieval furniture are prize decor in many a home. We can watch jousting matches and other Medieval entertainment at certain theme parks and fairs, and tales of knights in shining armor continue to captivate the imagination.

A knight in a suit of armor also acts as wonderful decor for any home where classic, Gothic, and Victorian decorations are appreciated. Although a full, life-size, antique suit of armor is beyond reach for most, suits of armor on a smaller scale and beautiful statues of knights can be found for very affordable prices in our collection. We even have knight-themed functional decor. The Knights of the Digital Realm Sculptural Bookends make a great gift for anyone who loves the fantasy genre. You could also add this unique decor to your own library along with the Nunsmere Hall 16th-Century Battle Armor Collection as wall decor.

If the home could use a mirror, the Knights Templar Sculptural Wall Mirror blends the strong, fabled appearance of a Knight of the Templar Order with a mirror in the shape of a shield. Pair this fine wall decor with such other, functional, knight-themed decor as the Battle-Worthy Knight Sculptural Table.

Three Reasons to Put Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Florentine GargoyleWe all have our favorite garden statuary items. Some of us put the focus on garden fairies because we love their blend of detailed beauty, nature, and magic. Others stick to replicas of stunning antique sculptures, and some people prefer to decorate the yard with an animal yard statue or two. However, no matter what you might prefer in terms of statues or decorating themes, a gargoyle statue will make the backyard look better. The following are three reasons why this is the case:

  • Gargoyles are in a class of their own: Created to intimidate evil spirits and frighten Medieval peasants, gargoyles rank among the more unique of sculptures. Put something like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue on display and you will have the most unique backyard on the block.

 

  • Gargoyles are conversation pieces: Unique statuary is always going to spark conversation, and gargoyles are no exception. Not only will the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue protect the garden, but it will also entertain guests and be the talk of your summer party guests.

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.

Dine Like Royals with Gothic Tables

Effingham Gryphon Library TableNo dining room is complete without a fine dining room table. While one could eat dinner on a small card table or while relaxing on the couch, the evening meal is always better when properly enjoyed at a fine table made for that purpose. It gives you more room to enjoy a full course meal, share your repast with family and friends, and can also be used to display candles, small statues, and other beautiful decor. European royalty recognized the importance of proper furniture for dining and typically used big, beautifully carved tables in their castles, mansions, and estates.

They dined at tables similar to the ones in our Gothic furniture collection. Many of the tables, chairs, and other furniture items in our Gothic and Medieval collection are modeled after antique replicas that act as decor in the halls of Victorian estates and old castles. The Effingham Gryphon Library Table is one such furniture item. Carved from richly colored mahogany, this beautiful piece shows the same detailed scrollwork as tables used by royalty two hundred years ago.

The Lord Raffles Lion Table is another hand-carved, absolutely majestic, mahogany dining table. Set the plates and cutlery on this beautiful furniture item and you will feel like absolute royalty at every meal. Complete the regal look with a set of fantastic Hand-Carved Mahogany Charles II Chairs.

A Gargoyle Sculpture to Guard the Backyard

Leo the Laughing GargoyleGargoyles have been around for ages. In ancient times, sculptures of gargoyle like creatures and symbols were sometimes placed on or near sacred sites to act as a form of spiritual protection. That belief continued in Europe during the Middle Ages with typical, fanged gargoyles being placed on Gothic cathedrals and castles. Similar gargoyles are used to this day to decorate gardens and home interior. Due to their classic, protective appearance, a quality gargoyle statue can look good in any type of garden.

If your backyard could still use a gargoyle or two, it might be time to buy one of our detailed gargoyle sculptures. Leo the Laughing Gargoyle Statue is one of the more cheerful gargoyles in our collection. This unique canine-gargoyle hybrid will be a hit at parties whether you put it on display inside the home or in the garden.

For a more intimidating gargoyle, we have several wickedly wonderful sculptures in our collection to choose from. The Castle Gate Gargoyle Statue is a classic, old time winged beast that looks very similar to statues on the walls of old Medieval keeps. The Abbadon Gargoyle Statue is an even more intimidating, highly detailed gargoyle that perches on top of a Celtic cube.

Dragon Garden Statues or Dragon Sculptural Tables?

Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Gazing OrbThe dragon is one of the most legendary and enduring of mythical creatures. In fact, stories of this scaly beast have been around for so long that some have wondered if dragons did indeed exist at some time in the past. Although evidence for actual dragons has yet to be found, that doesn't stop many cultures from paying homage to those intriguing creatures with films, fantasy novels, and works of art. Some of those works of art include sculptures of dragons for the garden.

Our Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Gazing Orb is a classic, fantasy-themed dragon that works well in a variety of gardens. Compliment your collection of garden fairies, gnomes, or classic statuary with this enchanting sculpture to add an extra bit of magic to the backyard. It will look even better when paired with the classic Desmond the Dragon Statue.

If you already have enough dragon statues for the backyard, you could always buy dragon-themed decor for the interior of home and business. One of the most stunning dragon decor items you will ever see is the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table. This magnificent sculptural table features a detailed, Medieval dragon that would be wonderful decor all on its own. However, it also acts as a functional, stunning coffee table.

New and Exciting Gothic Decor

Knights Templar Sculptural Wall MirrorGothic decorations include such decor as gargoyles, statues and portraits of stunning Medieval dragons, and some of the most breathtaking furniture you will ever find. At Design Toscano, we love and appreciate Gothic-themed decorations and this is why we feature such a wide variety of Gothic items in our collection. We update our Gothic selection on a regular basis, and the following items are some of the newer, more exciting additions to our collection:

Unlike the darker and more frightening characters and creatures, the Unicorn represents purity and the power associated with truth.

  • Knights Templar Sculptural Wall Mirror: This unique decor would be interesting enough on its own but it also works as a functional mirror. Stare into this looking glass to feel like royalty from another age.

Beautiful and sturdy

Sudbury Gothic Hardwood Bar Stools: Set of Two

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

The Sudbury barstools combine the beauty of medieval furniture with good quality. They are sturdier than the Sudbury Collection dining chairs. It is a pity though that the barstools are different color than the dining set of the same collection. Would be nice if there was a choice of colors for the dining set, so that people who want to have matching style furniture can pick the color to correspond with the barstools.

Magnificent!

Sir Gawain's Dragon Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

My husband and I ordered this dragon head for our "Medieval Wall." It's quite an eye catcher and we get a lot of compliments on it. #I painted the eyeballs yellow with black iris so it looks more menacing#. We hung it above head level so we wouldn't be bumping into it as it sticks out quite a bit. Tip: use heavy-duty screws for hanging, as it's a fairly heavy piece.

"The Seven Deadly Sins" are a festival of 'gesture' and 'symbolism'; each portraying one of the so-called deadliest of Heaven-blockers!

Seven Cardinal Sins Plaques

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

"The Seven Deadly Sins" are a festival of gesture and symbolism, each portraying the very human search for status, pleasure and wealth that we all seem attracted to. The Medieval Church declared them as Heaven-Blockers, I guess... and yet, the priests, monks and bishops pursued them all with wild abandon! Thus, the monks' hooded garb was employed in these delightful bas-reliefs to show that they didn't "practice what they preached"! Hahahaha! So human... cartoon-ishly humorous... the artist lavished his expertise upon the full range of human facial expression in a way that reflects each of the "sins". Magnificent and Bravo! Every guest has a comment about them!

A beautiful piece of furniture

The Lord Raffles Winged Lion Buffet Table

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I bought this for my medieval room area. It is an amazing piece of furniture and I continue to receive many compliments on it. I set my King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in the center (also from Toscano) and my swords in the stones. I must admit this is my favorite item in my home and I enjoy just sitting, reading, and looking at it!

The Best Garden Gargoyle Statue for a Gothic Garden

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel StatueAs the snow falls outside and we wait out the cold grip of winter, why not warm the heart by making plans for a spring garden? One idea is hosting a Gothic-themed garden instead of a backyard dotted with friendly garden gnomes and innocent animal garden statues. If you feel bad about keeping the gnomes in storage, you could always put a few, choice gnome statues on display while other parts of the garden are dedicated to fine Gothic statuary. However, no matter how you decide to decorate the backyard with Gothic-themed decor, don't forget the gargoyle sculpture. One or more of these classic Gothic statues are an absolute essential aspect of any Gothic-themed garden.

For a look that blends the storied appearance of a Medieval gargoyle with details that pay homage to horror classics, buy the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue. When guests see this eerie sculpture in the garden, they will realize that they aren't walking into any ordinary castle. If you would like to add a regal yet somewhat intimidating Gothic touch to the backyard, put Gargoyle Sentinel Statues on display! Try the fantastic Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue and the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue for full effect. No matter which gargoyle statues you choose, don't forget to add another gothic gargoyle touch with Roland the Gargoyle Rain Gutter.

Find these and dozens of other fantastic garden gargoyle statues at Design Toscano today.
