Three Excellent Reasons for Buying Gothic Tables

The Sudbury Solid Pine Dining TableMedieval home decor adds a regal, storied look to any home, especially when Gothic tables are placed in the dining area, library, or other suitable room. The following are three other reasons for buying magnificent Gothic furniture from Design Toscano:

  • The Sudbury Solid Pine Dining Table: Although many Gothic-themed tables and replicas of antique furniture are hand carved from rich, reddish Mahogany, we dare to state that this rich, golden-colored, solid pine table is just as beautiful. Its full seven foot length and stunning appearance are ideal for hosting regal dinners and its beautiful, hand carved rosettes, laurel bows, and scrolls heighten this uncommon table with Medieval personality.
  • Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee Table: Since we did mention Mahogany, it's only fair that we also talk about one of the most regal Mahogany tables in our collection of fine furniture. This stunning coffee table is hand carved from that durable, richly colored tropical hardwood and is a replica of antique furniture that was used by European royalty.  Its regal stature is demonstrated with carvings of lions heads, lion paws for the table's feet, and ornate heraldic crests.
  • Save 20% on Gothic Tables and all furniture items: Given that our sale on furniture items only lasts until tomorrow, August 25th, this may be the best reason for buying Gothic themed tables and other furniture now!

Enjoy a 20% discount on all of our furniture items when purchased by tomorrow, August 25th.

Give Gothic Décor a Modern Touch with Steampunk Items

Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee TableGothic decorations represent an especially unique type of decor for a number of reasons. They can be replicas of furniture and decor that hail from another very different time, are often associated with tales of horror and suspense, and may depict mythical creatures that are a lot less cuddly than a rabbit, horse, or even a bear. When we follow a Gothic decorating theme for a room, home, or garden, gargoyle figurines start hanging from the walls and flank entrance ways. Statues of knights and other Medieval-themed items make an appearance. Gothic furniture gives living and dining rooms an ornate, noble appearance. In short, your place becomes an abode of fantasy and Medieval charm. Nevertheless, you will make your place look even more interesting by injecting it with a bit of Steampunk.

Although the Steampunk theme is in a category of its own, it makes a very nice compliment to Gothic decor. Steampunk came out of Japanese Anime films that gave characters and their backdrops a distinct, creative blend of Victorian era designs and odd, industrial gadgetry. As far as decorating goes, the results are unique, textured pieces that come straight out of a fantasy world where people with enhanced robotic limbs occasionally battle monsters in Victorian-themed, industrial landscapes. This may explain why such fantastic Steampunk animal items as the Cyber Bat and  Cyber Leopard  make excellent additions to a Gothic-themed room.

Order these and other items from today until tomorrow, August 16th, and save with our Beat the Heat Sale.

With the Beat the heat Sale, you:

Save $20 on purchases of $100 to $199.

The Intimidating Beauty of the Garden Gargoyle Statue

Gargoyle statues aren't really in the same category as a peaceful depiction of a sleeping cherub or a cute little animal garden statue of a rabbit. No, Gargoyles were designed to scare off and intimidate evil spirits and people with malicious plans. Intimidation is an essential part of the Silas the Sentry Gargoyle Sculptureclassic gargoyle statue but that characteristic also lends the sculpture a certain degree of beauty.  Much of that beauty is found in the fine details shown by such high quality gargoyle statues as Argos and Boden; two striking Gargoyle sentinel statues. These two foot tall gargoyles make a beautiful Gothic statement with their wonderfully detailed wings, talons, muscled appearance, and classic French gargoyle faces. Use them to flank the entranceway to the backyard or house and guests will feel as if they are walking into a place where Medieval fantasy reigns.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle is equally intimidating and beautiful. Silas demonstrates a frightening, intimidating, and realistic display of personality with its upturned face and accusing glare. With its tensed muscles and crouched position, this fine gargoyle seems ready to leap into the air and use its sharp claws to defend the castle at any moment.

Enjoy free regular shipping on unique resin garden statues and other items from Design Toscano from today until Sunday, August 4th. No minimum purchase required!

Gothic Decor for a Gothic Themed Bar

Authentic Iron Gargoyle Bottle OpenerA bar can be a wonderful addition to a home. It's the perfect venue for entertaining guests and is a fun place to sit back and relax after a long day at work or weeding the garden. A bar can also be successfully used to highlight a decorating theme. For example, a bar placed in a room that features Gothic decorations can add a wonderful, additional Gothic touch in a variety of ways. One of the easiest means of adding Gothic decor to a bar is with fun, decorative bottle openers such as the Evil Skull Cast Iron Bottle Opener or better yet, have guests open bottles with a striking dragon opener or a wicked iron gargoyle bottle opener.

Decorative mirrors also work well with home bars. The Gothic Cathedral Arch Mirror is a beautiful piece that adds a fantastic, four and a half foot tall, Medieval touch to a room that hosts a Gothic bar. For full Gothic effect, hang this enticing, enchanting mirror right behind the bar and use Forest Spirits Greenmen Goblets to serve guests their drink of choice.

Complete the Gothic look of your bar by putting Count Dracula's Coat of Arms on a wall next to it. Few other decorations can match the Gothic splendor of a realistic replica of the real Dracula's family crest!

Get an Extra 20% off the Luxurious Louis XIV Glass-Topped Cocktail Table

Louis XIV Glass - Topped Cocktail TableModern furniture runs the gamut from cheap plastic chairs and tables to beautiful, hand carved works of art. During Medieval times in Europe, the situation was somewhat similar except that there were probably two main types of furniture; basic wooden items crafted for function only, and opulent works of art that were reserved for the dining halls of castles, keeps, and luxurious chateaux. Luxurious Medieval and antique furniture continue to be admired in present times, although mostly in museums that preserve and put those extraordinary, elegant items on display. However, quality resin technologies and skilled artists make it possible to put stunning replicas of such items in the home, office, and place of business.

The Louis XIV Glass-topped Cocktail Table is a highly detailed replica of exquisite French antique furniture used by French aristocracy during the time of Louis the XIV. Its three gilded cherub legs and intricate designs showcase the lengths that artists went to create incredible, functional works of art for French lords and ladies. The gilded, detailed highlights of this table are absolutely stunning and will help to give your living room an absolutely regal touch. Use this glass-topped table to display some of the finer objets d'art from the Basil Street Gallery or use it to serve snifters of prize cognac to esteemed guests.

Get an extra 20% off this luxurious table, any other on sale furniture, and all on sale items at Design Toscano from today until Monday, July 22nd.

Add Splendor to the Dining Room with Beautiful French Chairs

Chateau DuMonde Coat of Arms Dining Arm ChairBefore the French Revolution, the aristocracy lived in huge mansions that featured extensive gardens showcasing elegant sculpted fountains and classic Greek garden statues. The beauty of the surrounding gardens was matched on the inside of those mansions with gorgeous hand-carved wooden furniture, exquisite tapestries, and paintings presented in gilded frames. Walking into such homes was probably like entering a museum housing a fantastic collection of objets d'art, antiques, and fine decor in every room. Although rather few people still actually reside in French chateaux, several of those grand old homes have actually been converted into museums that showcase much of the same beautiful furniture and decor that was admired by their original inhabitants.

Chateau furniture in particular looks simply fantastic. Instead of average, everyday chairs or tables, we have furniture that has been hand-carved from rich, beautiful Mahogany. The upholstery itself is a stunning work of art that features coats of arms, Medieval designs, and other heraldic patterns. In short, the furniture looks fit for a king and indeed it had to be just in case members of the royal family paid a visit. While the days of noble visits and aristocracy are long gone, we make it possible to decorate the dining room with the same types of beautiful Medieval French furniture. The Chateau DuMonde Coat of Arms Dining Chairs are exquisite replicas of 17th century furniture that graces the hallways of old, French chateaux. Put a set of these chairs around the table to make you and your guests feel like royalty.

Knight Statues for Your Medieval Collection

The King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight ReplicaThe days of castles, kings, and jousts are aspects of the distant past but the fantasy, romance, and attractions of the Medieval era live on in some of our favorite movies, books, and a theme park or two. For many of us, we also show our love for Medieval pageantry by decorating the living room with beautiful Gothic tables and haunting Gothic statues. Such breathtaking decor adds serious character to any room and helps turn even the most humble of homes into a fantasy-filled keep. The regal beauty of Medieval decor can also be put on display with exquisite statues of knights in shining armor.

The King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight Replica will captivate guests with its beautiful, regal details. Modeled after a 16th century museum piece, this elegant statue stands more than three feet tall and is ready to defend the royal family with a fine, two handed sword and beautiful armor emblazoned with golden lions. This is ideal decor for entranceways into a Medieval or Gothic-themed home or room.

Knight statues also act as striking, regal decor for a desk or decorative table. The Fourteenth Century Crusader Knight is an exquisite collectable Medieval statue that features an English knight with a visor that can be flipped up to reveal his carefully painted, lifelike face. Our hero holds a sword at his side, brandishes a beautifully painted shield and wears a detailed, authentic looking armor.

The Timeless Ancient Beauty of Bronze Garden Statues

Replica 13th Century Medieval Warrior Soldier Lost Wax Bronze StatueBronze was one of the first metals to be worked and used by ancient peoples. An alloy of copper and tin, it replaced pure copper due to its harder, more durable nature. Bronze is even harder than iron but was eventually replaced by that metal due to shortages of tin during 1100 BC, and then truly fell out of use as a weapon once steel was developed (an alloy that is harder than bronze). Nevertheless, bronze was and still is used for many other purposes than weaponry. It has been a popular medium for cast sculptures in particular and the reason for this popularity is quickly realized upon seeing a breathtaking, polished bronze statue up close.

Bronze has a timeless beauty; a special attribute demonstrated by such sculptures as the Birth of Venus and the 13th Century Medieval Warrior Soldier. Both of these stunning statues capture the essence of older works of art in the rich brown, golden-hued colors of bronze.

The quality and timeless character of bronze is also demonstrated by such modern day statues as the beautiful Leap Froggin Playing Boys sculpture. The folds of their clothing, happy looks on their faces, and other details make this high quality bronze sculpture look like a snapshot of another, more innocent time.

Find the best bronze statues, garden statuary, greenmen, and other decor for your garden and business at Design Toscano today.

Fantastic Tables for Creative People

The Subservient Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural TableA person's mindset and character are frequently reflected by the furniture they use. For example, people with very little imagination might opt for a table that is functional and looks nice but doesn't fall outside of their comfort zone. It's more likely to resemble basic, average tables they have used in the past rather than beautiful Gothic tables with ornate carvings and lion's paws at the bases of the legs. Although many a person who happens to be lacking when it comes to imagination could still love such a table, they might need some convincing to buy it. On the other hand, someone with a very creative mind is more likely to go for breathtaking, unique furniture such as the Subservient Dragon Sculptural Glass-topped Table or Bones, the English Butler Pedestal Table.

Another table that fits right in with the creative mind is the unique Nettlestone Library Ensemble. This modern version of European trompe l'oeil furniture is a true, functional work of art. When closed, it resembles a bookcase that houses several interesting tomes. However, open it up and its true nature is revealed, a unique table with two, cushioned barrel chairs! Look beneath those comfortable chairs and you will find hidden compartments and casters to store your favorite books and treasures.

Find unique Medieval furniture and hundreds of excellent Father's Day gift ideas at Design Toscano.

Get great discounts from today until June 7th as part of our Father's Day Tiered Sale:

$20 off orders of $100 to $199

$50 off orders of $200 to $399

Gargoyle Garden Statues that Climb the Walls of Your Abode

Gargoyle Demon on the Loose Wall SculptureGargoyles are dramatic decor no matter where they are displayed but they seem to do best when perched atop a castle wall or when leering down at folks who are walking in and out of a Gothic cathedral. Such situations were the first places where European gargoyles were used as decor and they still tend to look more impressive when crouched up on top of a parapet than when sitting on the ground. Although sculptures like the Legend of Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle look intimidating no matter where you put them, most winged gargoyles look right at home when perched on top of a pedestal.

To reach those high places they love, gargoyles could simply use their bat-like wings and fly but if the Gargoyle Demon on the Loose Sculpture is any indication, it appears that some prefer to creep up the walls of castles, churches, and homes like slinking miniature dragons. This frightening Medieval gargoyle shows that he is up to no good with an intriguing, evil grin. Pair it with the unique Catgoyle on the Loose Sculpture for garden wall decor that will give guests something to talk about! 

However, no gargoyle wall decor theme would be complete without Gaston the Climbing Gargoyle. Sculpted with eerie, realistic details, Gaston is bound to be one of more intimidating garden statuary items in your collection.

Save on fantastic gargoyle figurines and hundreds of high quality decor for garden, home, and business at Design Toscano.

Dragon Statues for Spring and Summer

Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon RainspoutSpring is here and it's time to redecorate the garden. This year, why not decorate the backyard with a different theme? Instead of putting out the usual selection of angel statues and garden gnomes, try decorating the backyard with a couple of dragons. They don't have to replace the rest of your decor, but by putting a dragon statue on display, you show your appreciation for the fantasy genre while giving the garden a unique, dramatic touch. 

Get your backyard ready for the warm days of spring and summer with dragon sculptures like Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout. Put this Medieval-themed functional dragon sculpture on the end of a gutter to help channel water away from the house. This impressive dragon statue is designed to look as if Ranier is breathing fire every time it rains.

To help turn your backyard into a place of enchantment, put Dragon-Orb sculptures on display such as Mayze, the Dragon Protector of the Orb and Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Orb. Mayze shows that the fantasy genre is that much more magical when humor is thrown into the mix. Poor Mayze seems to be more interested in taking a nap on top of the orb rather than ferociously protecting it and thus makes for one of the most adorable little dragon statues you will ever see. Sir Sagremor's dragon isn't exactly cute but he makes up for it with realistic, eye-catching details.

Three Reasons to Buy Egyptian and Gothic Tables

The Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee TableFurniture is more than just function. Tables, chairs, and lamps can and should also act as decor. For example, an Egyptian-themed room might look nice with a few statues, an Egyptian urn, and Egyptian-themed paintings but include a sculptural glass-topped table and the room goes from being impressive to simply stunning. The same goes for tables with a Gothic touch. The following are three other reasons for buying Gothic-themed tables:

  • They add a regal touch to the dining room: Furniture like the Lord Raffle's Grand Hall Lion Leg Coffee Table is modeled after antique tables that were used by Victorian era English nobles. The rich colors, quality, and durable nature of this solid Mahogany table make it an heirloom piece that will last for generations while the carved motifs and lion paw legs turn it into fine, functional decor.
  • Gothic furniture combines stunning beauty with function: Given its refined beauty, quality Gothic furniture could easily be used as decor and nothing more. However, our Gothic and Medieval tables were built to last and also be used for elegant dinner parties, as a gorgeous addition to the library, or as impressive private office furniture.
  • They are on sale: One of the other main reasons why it's worth it to order these and other fine tables today is because you will get 20% off the regular price!

Save 20% on fine Gothic furniture, garden statuary, and everything from the Design Toscano site when ordering today until March 31st.

Functional Medieval Home Decor for the Musician

Celtic Rosewood Tara HarpElegant decorations during Medieval times were mostly used by nobility and clergy because they were the only people who could afford beautiful, carved wooden tables, gargoyle figurines, or putting a striking stone garden angel on display. In modern times, we can view those antique works of art in museums and on visits to European castles but also have the chance to buy beautiful replicas for home and office. Some decor also happens to be functional, including classic instruments such as Celtic harps. The angelic sounds of the harp have entertained and mesmerized people for centuries and echoed off the stone hallways of many a European castle and keep. The beauty of the harp is just as apparent when this regal instrument is used as decor as when it is played by skilled hands.

The Celtic Rosewood Heather Harp is a fully functional replica of a 10th century, 22 string harp. This absolutely gorgeous instrument is decorated with traditional motifs, carved from beautiful tropical hardwood, and is wonderful decor for any Medieval or music-themed room. It's also meant to be played and this is why we include pitch shifters, tuning sets, and extra strings. Pair this classic functional decor with the equally stunning 12 string Celtic Rosewood Tara Harp.

Find these quality items and hundreds of beautiful Medieval and Gothic decor at Design Toscano.
