Happy Mother's Day from Design Toscano!

Frederic, the Little Fisherman of Avignon SculptureHappy Mother's Day! We hope that all of our customers, family, and friends have a wonderful day. If part of this special day includes a stroll in the garden, we also hope that Mom enjoys her garden statuary gifts. If you didn't have a chance to surprise Mom with a new garden statue, there's still time to give her a beautiful sculpture for her birthday or summer backyard.

Frederic, the Little Fisherman of Avignon Sculpture is a lovely little sculpture that lends an innocent, cheerful touch to any yard. In other words, Mom will love this happy decor, especially when displayed at the edge of a small pond or pool.

If Mom enjoys classic statuary, she will appreciate Hebe, the Goddess of Youth Sculpture. This replica of the famous 19th century statue by Danish artist Thorwaldsen is an elegant depiction of the cupbearer for the Greek Gods. This lovely decor would look right at home in the gardens of any Victorian estate, and indeed, statues of Hebe are regularly found on the lawns of old, European estates.

See our collection of high quality decor to find the best selection of beautiful resin garden statues for the best prices.

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. Medieval items, antique replica furniture, and other forms of classy decor are also frequently categorized as Gothic decorations. Although our collection certainly includes several fine statues of dragons and detailed gargoyles, we also carry a variety of Medieval-themed gifts, accessories, and unique statues.

Friends and family who love the fantasy genre will also love the Medieval Knight Iron Book Ends, and the Cotswold Cathedral Jewel Box. They will also like it when you serve drinks on the Medieval Norman Warriors Coaster Set at your next party or showing of a favorite fantasy movie.

Medieval and Gothic accessories also include the beautiful Twin Dragons Sculptural Pewter Pen, and the Knight's Templar Helmet Desk Accessory among other unique items. Complement those Medieval accessories with such Gothic-themed garden statuary as the Celtic Circle of Life Sculpture and the Mystic Night Ravens Statues for the interior of the home.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of our Gothic items and Medieval home decor until May 8th.

Three Benefits of a Large Garden Angel Statue

Praying Angel Garden StatueDecor is an important aspect of any garden. The backyard looks incomplete and lacks personality until we decorate it with a sculpture or two, and one such genre of garden statuary is perfect for turning an everyday backyard into a place of peace and inspiration. This special decor is the angel statue, and the following benefits show why large angel sculptures hold a place of prominence in cathedrals, estates, and the biggest displays of garden statues:

  • Classic appeal: Few sculptures are more classic in appearance than a large, beautiful angel. Put the Grand Basilica Praying Angel Garden Statue on display and guests will be reminded of the antique works of art that grace European museums and cathedrals.

 

  • Majestic decor: Angels are meant to be majestic and they show it with long, flowing gowns, big feathered wings and an other-worldly appearance. Several angels in our collection are nothing short of majestic, including the striking Angeli di Luce. These breathtaking angels are directly cast from antique angel sculptures from an Italian cathedral.

 

  • Inspiration: Angel sculptures have a tranquil appearance that encourages relaxation and reflection, especially large angel statues like the Angel of Patience Sculpture.

Browse our site for the best selection of high quality resin garden statues and decor for the home, garden, and business.

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.

Outstanding Contemporary Bronze Garden Sculptures

Nymph Dancing on LiliesA variety of sculpting mediums have been used throughout history. At present times, most high quality garden statues are made from resin. One hundred years ago, most statues were made from marble. However, before marble came into use, sculptures of the highest quality were cast in bronze. The qualities and beauty of this copper alloy made it an ideal choice for sculptures in the ancient past and it has continued to be an important material for sculptures today.

Some of the finest sculptures in our collection are cast in bronze and were made with the same lost wax method that was used for statues in the empires of the ancient world. Although several classic bronze sculptures can be found in our collection of garden statuary, we also offer modern day bronze decor fir for art galleries and the most distinguished of gardens. The Nymph Dancing on Lilies Cast Bronze Garden Statue is lovely, energetic, and piped to lend an enchanting touch to a backyard pond. This fine sculpture and the endearing Mother's Moment Cast Bronze Garden Statue both use a beautiful antiqued emerald verde patina to give these heirloom pieces additional color. Equally outstanding is the wonderfully detailed Fishing Family Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

Find the best selection of heirloom-quality statues and garden decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on Purchase of $75 or More through Sunday!

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.

Beautiful Lighting for the Backyard with Asian Garden Statues

Sacred Pagoda LanternIt's time to take advantage of the warm weather and spend more time in the backyard. One of the nicest things about the warm weather of spring and summer is not having to go back into the house after the sun goes down. In fact, sometimes, the backyard is better during a warm summer night, especially when we enjoy it with our family and friends. Lighting is of course essential but why settle on average illumination when there are more interesting options available?

The Sacred Pagoda Lantern Illuminated Statue provides a garden with soft, peaceful lighting in the form of attractive Asian-themed decor. It also looks just as nice during the day, especially when placed next to a Koi pond or rock garden.

The Sacred Pagoda pairs well with the simple yet elegant and serene Japanese Pagoda Illuminated Lantern Statue. These illuminated statues look especially nice when one is placed next to a pond or off in a corner of the garden, and the other is displayed next to the pool or near the back door. Complete the Asian-themed look by adding candles to the "Avalokitesvara Buddha" Garden Statue.

Features of a Lovely Garden Fairy Statue

Spirit of the Wind Fairy StatueGarden fairy statues can lend the backyard an enchanting, refreshing look. However, not all fairy statues are created equal. Average sculptures of fairies and other decor won't give a yard the same magical touch as high quality fairy decor. To know that you are dealing with fairy statues of the highest quality, look for decor with the following features:

  • Delicate elegance: Real fairies are rumored to be as lovely as new spring flowers. This natural, ethereal beauty is captured by many of our fairy sculptures, including the stunning Spirit of the Wind Fairy Statue.

 

  • Life-like appearance: A high quality fairy statue looks as if it is about to take flight. Put the Fairy of the West Wind Sitting Statue in the backyard and you might find garden guests doing a double-take when they see this realistic sculpture. This musical fairy looks even more like the real thing when complemented with the equally life-like Twinkle Toes Fairy Statue.

 

  • Proper attire: Fairies don't wear the same clothes as garden gnomes or people. True fairies make their own attire out of the things they find in nature and the garden. Flower petals and carefully stitched leaves are the favored textiles of the fairies. Note the beautiful feathered dress worn by the Fairies of Stratford: Blowing a Kiss Sculpture.

Find the best selection of beautiful garden fairies and other high quality decor for the home, garden, and place of business at Design Toscano.
