Time to Look for New Resin Garden Statues

Simon, the FoxWhether the garden is dusted with frost or buried beneath a white blanket of snow, this is the perfect time to look for new garden statues. There are several benefits of getting started with new garden decor during January or February but the main one has to do with time. Why wait until March or April to pick out a new stone garden angel or change up the garden decorating theme when you can start today? Begin to think about how you want to decorate the garden today and you have a couple of months to look through a wide selection of statues. You will have plenty of time to figure out the best way to decorate the yard instead of taking a chance with a few low quality sculptures at the last minute.

Instead of putting out the same old statuary as last year, start looking for new statues now and you will have more than enough time to decide between beautiful animal garden sculptures like the classic Simon the Fox Garden Statue or the stunning Lioness of Namibia Statue.

Begin now and you can take your time to find the best deals on Greek Garden Statues, gargoyle figurines, and regal sculptures like the Lion of Florence Sentinel Statue and Base

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.

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.

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.

Save on Beautiful Animal Garden Sculptures of Birds at Design Toscano

Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden StatueBirds are some of the more charismatic of animals. Many show brightly-colored plumage, add beautiful, natural music to the garden, and are a lot easier to watch than deer, bears, and other mammals. Put out a feeder or outdoor garden water fountains that act as bird baths, and you can watch everything from woodpeckers to jays and colorful finches in your own backyard.

Birds also make wonderful subjects for garden statues. Beautiful Indian Peafowl have strolled through the big gardens of Victorian estates, Roman villas, and royal grounds for hundreds of years. The wild birds also compete with classic, stunning statues of peacocks like the Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden Statue. This beautiful sculpture pays homage to the white peafowl that grace the lawns of the Staverden Castle in the Netherlands. Pair it with the detailed, colorful Palace Peacock Garden Statue.

Other colorful bird sculptures come in the form of toucans and macaws. Touco the Tropical Toucan Sculpture on Ring Perch is a fun, exotic addition to any yard or place of business.

Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Buddha Outdoor Statues and More on Sale at Design Toscano

Enlightened Buddha SculptureThe art of gardening is an important aspect of several Asian cultures. In some places, gardens are far more than a green patch for growing tomatoes, peppers, and tulips. They are also places where the trees are carefully sculpted to match the vision of the gardener, where paths can form intricate patterns, and where every rock and pebble has its proper place. Pay a visit to a Japanese garden and you will probably feel as if you are strolling through a work of art.
 
Asian garden statues are also an important part of Asian-themed gardens, a big role often being played by statues of the Buddha. Such peaceful sculptures lend character and tranquility to the yard, and are reminiscent of statues that decorate the grounds of temples and gardens in China, Japan, and Thailand. Not to mention, Buddha statues are by no means limited to an Asian-themed garden. The olive hues and classic details on The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture make this fine statue an excellent addition to any garden. It also works very well as interior decor and pairs well with the easy-going lavender and green hues of The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue. Gardens in need of a large Buddha statue can't go wrong with the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture.
 

Enjoy 20% off any of the beautiful garden statuary, exquisite interior decor, and unique sculptures in our collection until today, December 16th.

Beautiful, Natural Décor at Design Toscano

Spotted Dear, Forest FawnSome of the best decor is centered around a natural theme. Such sculptures blend in with and highlight their surroundings. They also lend an easy-going, pleasant, relaxed touch to the places where they are displayed, even if that happens to be inside a home or office. Many of those natural, easy-going works of art are animal garden sculptures. For example, the Spotted Deer, Forest Fawn Sculpture is a fine fit for a sun room, as a background statue in a library or den, or as a cute animal statue in a hotel or other business. Put this life-like depiction of a young deer in the garden during the spring and summer, and use it to lend natural beauty to the inside of the home when the weather turns cold.

The Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree is another excellent, unique decoration that lends a natural look to the yard, office, or interior of the home. Any of the three bear cubs in this sculpture would be a beautiful animal statue on its own. However, when all three are used in the same unique sculpture, it becomes a wonderful, adorable work of art fit for the garden, home, or place of business. Pair this interesting decor with our Bandit, the Raccoon Statue to augment the cute, natural look.

Bronze Garden Sculptures of Angels and Mermaids

Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden StatueResin garden statues are the perfect substitute for full-sized marble sculptures. Whereas a large marble statue must be commissioned and costs thousands of dollars, resin sculptures look just as good, can take just about any form, and are far more affordable. Although resin can also be made to look like bronze, there's nothing like the appearance of a statue crafted with bronze in the traditional lost wax method. Such sculptures look simply breathtaking and act as heirloom works of art. They can also put the crowning touch on gardens that already feature a fine assortment of angel sculptures and other garden statues.

The Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden Statue is a fantastic bronze with a beautiful antique verdigris patina. The fine details in the wings and flowing gown of this classic, realistic angel will make it one of the most stunning pieces in any collection. Show this beautiful decor in a new spring garden or display it as a prized, centerpiece statue inside the home.

Mermaids also make excellent bronze sculptures. The classic Mermaid of the Isle of Capri is modeled after similar mermaid statues that grace many a Victorian garden and European estate. This beautiful bronze mermaid acts as high quality centerpiece decor on its own, or can be used as a classy fountain for a backyard pond or the pool.

Animal Garden Sculptures to Help Celebrate the Winter Holidays

Puppy Parade Welcome SignDecor is a big part of the winter holidays. Decorations help bring out the fun, nostalgic feelings, and cheer that permeate the air during this time of the year.

Dolphins Statues and Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Monumental Five Dophin Spitting Bronze StatueDolphins rank among the most beloved of animals. These intelligent marine mammals seem to enjoy playing in the waves of the sea as much as or even more than people, can learn a wide variety of tricks, and have even saved people from drowning. It's hard not to admire dolphins as they swim next to a boat and jump into the air with spinning leaps. Not surprisingly, these sleek animals have been featured in art for literally thousands of years. Depictions of dolphins can be seen on frescos and pottery that date back to ancient Greece, and they have been frequently immortalized in sculpted form.

Given their aquatic nature, they also make wonderful, fitting sculptures for garden fountains. The Monumental Five Dolphin Spitting Bronze Garden Statue is one of our most impressive fountains. Each of the beautiful sculpted dolphins in this bronze heirloom piece spit water from their mouths and are carefully modeled after the real Bottlenose Dolphins that play in the waters of the Caribbean.

The Dolphins in Tandem Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture is another stunning fountain that depicts everyone's favorite marine mammal at play. This beautiful bronze statue is a powerful, stunning addition to any garden, and works especially well as hotel decor.
