Easy Going Animal Garden Sculptures

Yorkshire Lamb StatuesSome animal statues show the wild side of nature whereas others depict enchanting, magical creatures. However, if your garden is a bit too tame for statues of dragons, wild bears, or even Bigfoot, it might be the ideal place for sculptures of farm animals. Statues of sheep, pigs, horses, and other denizens of the farm can be a fun, cheerful addition to backyards and green space at the office.

Statues of farm animals can also be incredibly cute. The Yorkshire Lamb Statues are absolutely adorable and add a lovely, peaceful touch to any garden. Put them next to a walkway or near the back door to give garden guests a super cute welcome.

Buttercup, the Life-Size Holstein Calf Dairy Cow Statue is a realistic, beautiful sculpture of a calf. Everyone will love the charming look of this classic animal yard statue. It works as a wonderful complement to the Yorkshire Lamb Statues and looks just as adorable on its own.

Statues of pigs can also be easy, fun additions to a yard. Put the Laughing Pig Statue on display to help fill the yard with cheer, and complement it with the lovely little Sleeping Pig Statue.

Take 20% off any of these quality sculptures, garden statuary, and any other decor in our collection thru the end of the day today, September 2nd.

Save on New Interior Gothic Decor

Grim Reaper and Orb of Death StatueA Gothic-themed garden fits right in with fall weather. As the leaves fall from the trees, greenmen statues become more obvious and seem to laugh in delight. Gargoyle Garden Statues also seem to take charge with stark, intimidating features and long fangs. However, Gothic statues aren't just limited to the outside of the home. There are also plenty of Gothic statues that look wonderful when displayed inside the home.

The Grim Reaper and Orb of Death Statue is a 14 inch tall, faceless dark angel that adds character to any room. Put this unique sculpture in the library, next to your favorite reading chair, or on your desk to remind you of the mysteries of the fantasy genre.

Complement the dark look of the Grim Reaper with the dark comedy shown by the Bride and Doom Married Couple Skeleton Statue. The skeletons in this fun little statue show that death couldn't keep them apart. In fact, it kept them together and by their toothy grins, they seem pretty happy with that prospect. This unique interior decor makes a fine engagement gift for special couples and anyone with a dark sense of humor.

Greek Garden Statues for a Place of Business

Poseidon, God of the SeaThe ancient Greeks took the art of sculpting to new levels. Some Hellenic works of art are so realistic, it looks as if the statue might come to life and gave rise to myths of Medusa being capable of turning people to stone. The Romans improved upon Greek sculpting methodologies but the base of their knowledge came from the ancient Greek civilization. The sculptures that have survived from those eras are majestic and provide invaluable glimpses into the past. Their storied appearance also makes modern day versions of those classic sculptures excellent pieces for the garden but even more so for a place of business.

When we use decor for a business, we want it to portray a certain, appropriate character. However, perhaps most of all, we would also love if the decor could make our restaurant, hotel, or other business unforgettable. Greek statues like the grand-scale Poseidon, God of the Sea help make this happen because they are unique, spectacular decor that customers just don't see anywhere else. A statue of Poseidon or the Four Goddesses of the Seasons make them feel as if they are truly entering a special place. Complement the beauty of these statues with the stunning Spring Awakening Garden Statue for full marketing effect.

Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration. 

Looking for high quality Greek garden statues and other beautiful decor for the home and place of business? Find the best statues and decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.

Find Exquisite Wall Mirrors in the Basil Street Gallery

Fleur de Lis Metal Filigreen Wall MirrorThere are two main areas of the home to display decor. One is the exterior of the home (including the backyard), and the other is inside the home. This is important to keep in mind when shopping for garden statuary decor so you don't forget to buy indoor statues, wall decor, and other decorations for the inside of the home and place of business. As far an interior decor goes, wall decor is simply essential because the walls of the home have the largest amount of easily visible surface area. In other words, since we look at the walls a lot more than the floor or ceiling, we need to pay more attention to decorating them.

Replica paintings, friezes, and other wall decor work wonders at turning bare, boring walls into displays of vibrant beauty. This is turn, helps bring a home to life and makes it a much more fun place to live. Decorative wall mirrors in particular help to add a blend of function and ornate beauty to the walls of any home or business and the best place to find them is in our Basil Street collection. Two of the newest mirrors in our collection are the Fleur de Lis Metal Filigree Wall Mirror, and the Madame Antoinette Ebony Salon Mirror. Both of these beautiful mirrors are modeled after antique works of art that grace the walls of old European estates, and add a touch of class to any home.

Shop at Basil Street for the best in elegant, high quality decor for home and business.

These classic Asian sculptures can be jolly and show laughing Buddhas, but most depict the Buddha in a meditative, blissful state of mind.

This large Buddha statue also looks just as magnificent when displayed in a quiet garden of a hotel or Asian-themed restaurant.

The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture is another impressive statue that will leave a peaceful impression on just about anyone who walks into your garden. The classic Buddha in this sculpture is shown standing on a Lotus flower, and has an eye-catching, burnished finish that reminds us of antique bronze Buddhas in Asian temples. if you would rather have a genuine bronze Buddha, we also have the stunning, solid bronze, Tranquil Buddha

A Stone Garden Angel for Every Backyard

In God's Grace StatueAngel statues aren't just meant to be displayed in old cathedrals and Victorian gardens. They can also be displayed with charm in the gardens of hotels, restaurants, and any home. It all depends on the type of angel sculpture you are looking for and the decor that is already on display. For example, the cute and realistic In God's Grace Angel Statue isn't going to look right in a backyard decorated with Gothic decor but might look perfect in a garden that features religious decor or friendly garden fairies.

There are plenty of angels that also happen to look right at home in a Gothic garden including the hauntingly beautiful Monteverde Angel Statue, and the Serene Solitude Angel Statue. These fine statues aren't limited to Gothic-themed gardens and can also be used as high quality Halloween decor, or as unique garden statuary decor in gardens that feature classic or elegant sculptures.

However, if you would rather have an angel that is simply majestic, we also have several stunning angel statues to choose from. The beautiful Angel of Ravenna Religious Statue is a fantastic, 61 inch tall angel sculpture cast from an authentic, 19th century angel statue found in an Italian cathedral. The Angeli di Luce Statues were also cast from angel sculptures from an Italian cathedral and show their "heritage" with an absolutely majestic appearance. 

Buy any of the garden angel statues in our collection by today, August 13, and enjoy a 20% discount.

The Cherub as a Garden Angel Statue

Topsy & Turvey the Cherub Twin StatuesThere are many types of angel statues. Angels can be large, awe-inspiring sculptures that grace the interior of massive cathedrals. They can be winged, robed beings that grieve and mourn for loved ones who have passed on. They can also evoke feelings of faith and joy, or take the form of innocent babes. This last type of angel is one of the most interesting. Unlike their larger, dramatic counterparts, cherubs are playful, sweet little winged beings that embody the naturally angelic beauty shown by babies.

Their easy-going nature and natural beauty also makes the cherub statue suitable, beautiful decor for any garden. The Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues are one foot tall, detailed Putti statues with a playful appearance. Put these unique, happy cherubs near a fountain or next to a flowerbed for a garden with a cheerful look. Complement these fun cherub sculptures with the curiosity and realism of the Life's Mysteries Cherub Statue.

Cherubs are also perfect for adding adorable decor to the garden and the Cherubs d'Amour Statue is no exception. This endearing sculpture captures the innocence and shyness shown by darling children. You could also blend function with beauty and savings by purchasing the "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue.

Garden Fairies and Other Mysterious, Magical Creatures

Woodland Fairy Garden House StatueWe can decorate the garden with a wide variety of statues and garden decorating themes. While some of us stick to a Victorian-themed garden decorated with classic sculptures and Greek garden statues, others prefer a backyard highlighted with fantasy-themed decor. Statues of fairies, pixies, gnarled greenmen, and other creatures appeal to anyone with an appreciation for the fantasy genre and give the yard a magical touch.

The Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue makes an enchanting addition to a flowerbed or the area beneath a big, old Oak, and gives your garden fairy sculptures a welcome place to stay. Teasing Tessa is one of several fairies who would love to live in that cozy wooden house. In true fairy style, Tessa has delicate wings and clothing crafted from leaves.

Statues of pixies and garden trolls also make an enchanting addition to a fantasy-themed garden. The Stretch Garden Pixie Statue demonstrates the odd, magical appearance of these mischievous creatures and looks even better when complemented with the Valfried: Moon Gawker Garden Troll Statue. Valfried is one of the most unique fantasy-themed statues in our collection. Put it near the edge of a bush or flowerbed for full effect, and place the Spirit of Nottingham Woods Greenman on your favorite tree to complete your fantasy-themed garden.
