Gargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.
When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.
Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Whether your team is playing in the biggest game of the year or not, we hope that all of our customers can share this exciting day with family and friends. While waiting for the game to start (or if you don't feel like watching the game at all), you could always make plans for a spring garden. It's not too early to start thinking about decor for the garden because that warm weather is going to be here sooner than we realize. In addition to looking for a few new garden fairies and a new stone garden angel, we can also lend the garden a classic look with columns and plinths.
Fluted columns and plinths were an essential part of Roman villas and the gardens of ancient Greece. These simple yet classy types of decor are perfect for displaying stunning Greek Garden Statues. Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases lend a fine touch to stunning sculptures like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, and the beautiful Muse with Harp Sculpture.
Pillars and columns also lend a classic look to gardens even if they don't act as a base for fine statuary. Our Corinthian Pillars can be used to host potted flowers and other plants, as decor reminiscent of a Roman villa, or as a regal spot to place a cold drink.
Find the best selection of columns, plinths, and other fine garden statuary for the best prices at Design Toscano.

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.

Spring might seem like a far distant memory but it's going to be here faster than we think. Well, at least we hope so but honestly, most people in Canada and the USA will be feeling the warm winds of spring just two months from now. That translates to 60 days to pick out new garden statues and other fine decor for a spring garden. However, although we have two full months to look for the best decor additions for the yard, there is less than one day to save $100 on garden statues.
Today, January 9th, is the final day of our tiered sale that lets you take anywhere from $20 to $100 off everything from a high quality stone garden angel to gargoyles and stunning animal garden statues. This is a fantastic opportunity to save on decor for the garden, home, and place of business because, in a sense, the more you buy, the more you save. For example, buy the In God's Grace Angel Statue and take $20 off but if that beautiful little statue is purchased with a "Queen of Angels, Guardian of Children" Statue, you can enjoy a $100 discount.
Buy $100 to $199 in garden statuary and other Design Toscano items and take $20 off.
Enjoy $50 off purchases of $200 to $399 .

Garden statuary items are essential decor for backyards, hotels, and restaurants. The right sculptures can also lend a beautiful touch to the office. However, statues for the garden can also come in handy in other situations, one of which happens to be the holiday gift giving season. The following are a few reasons why garden sculptures make excellent gifts for the winter holidays:
- Fine statues are meant to be treasured: High quality garden sculptures are used as decor, but are also treasured by those who put them on display. A majestic stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture will be treasured for years.

October is such a fun time of the year. We see a colorful collage of red, green, and yellow foliage in our favorite parks and backyards. Football season is well underway, the nights have a crisp October edge, and Halloween is coming. Speaking of this fun holiday, it's not too late to buy high quality Halloween decor. After picking out a few gargoyle figurines, pick out an angel statue for the backyard. Even if you don't use it as Halloween decor (although you should), a beautiful angel sculpture is a fine fit for an October garden.
Angel statues look wonderful in a late fall garden. The bare branches and change of seasons are reminiscent of old, European cemeteries decorated with beautiful sculptures of angels, and the stark surroundings help put the spotlight on angel sculptures and other garden statuary. The Remembrance and Redemption Angel Sculpture is a striking emotional piece that speaks volumes in Victorian silence. This beautiful sculpture is wonderfully complemented with the smooth contours of the Extended Grace Angel Statue.
If "majesty" is what you are looking for in an angel statue, the Angel of Patience is more than adequate. This elegant strolling angel has a classic, serene appearance that will stand out even more when the leaves have fallen.

Gargoyles aren't just limited to the high walls of old French cathedrals and crumbling castles. These intimidating, unique stone monsters also look right at home in gardens with Victorian-themed decor, stone garden angel or two, and other classic garden decorations. However, there is one night in the year when gargoyle garden statues take center stage. That special, scary date is October 31st, the day when Gargoyles truly hold dominion over the garden.
Greet all of your Halloween guests with Silas the Sentry Gargoyle to show them the true nature of October 31st. This fine gargoyle gives a silent hello with protruding fangs, sharp and ready claws, and bony bat wings. It will also wait with tensed muscles at the ready long after the end of your Halloween bash. After guests edge past the threatening stare of Silas, they can be subjected to the evil grin of Talysus the Terrible. With outstretched wings and crouching posture, Talysus is ready and eager to pounce on anyone who happens to make the wrong move.
Once Halloween guests enter into your spooky October 31st dwelling, use Merciless, the Gargoyle Lighted Wall Sculpture to help them find their way. They might admire Merciless for a bit, but won't last long under the fierce, piercing eyes of this functional gargoyle sculpture.
Enjoy a 20% discount on high quality resin garden statues and other unique decor in our Halloween collection until September 27th.

Statues of angels have decorated the gardens and interiors of churches for more than a thousand years. Although angels have been used as decor for centuries, they continue to be popular to this day. These classic sculptures played an important role in the decoration of Victorian estates and add a wonderful, elegant touch to modern day gardens. Perhaps the only problem with garden angel decor is finding high quality statues for a good price. While you can probably find an angel statue or two at the nearest big box garden store, such generic sculptures are usually at the lower end of the scale when it comes to quality.
The easiest way to find absolutely spectacular resin garden statues of angels is by shopping for them at Design Toscano. Among our wide selection of angel statues are such stunning beauties as the Queen of Angels, Guardian of Children Statue and the Ascending Angel Sculpture. Both of these fine statues highlight the drama and majestic beauty of the angelic host, and make a stunning statement for any yard or place of business.
However, as stunning as these sculptures may be, they might be outmatched by the fantastic Angeli di Luce statues. These classic sculptures are cast from 19th century angel statues that grace the grounds of an Italian cathedral.

Autumn is here and it's time to get serious about decorating for a fall backyard. The following tips will help you choose the right set of decor and statuary for this beautiful, dynamic time of year:
- Choose statues that make an impression: Once the leaves start to fall, garden statues take center stage. Instead of using small sculptures, try a majestic stone garden angel or other grand-sized sculpture meant to be admired on its own.

Garden 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.
