More about Design Toscano
From gargoyles and gnomes to cherubs and Faberge eggs, Design Toscano offers something for everyone. Their wide selection of statuary is notable for the attention to detail and durable resin construction. Lighter and more tenacious than concrete, resin ensures that each statue will stand the test of time. It also allows for easier transportation of their life-size collection, including dinosaurs, tigers, and bears ? oh my!
Michael and Marilyn Stopka visited Paris and were awestruck by the Notre Dame Cathedral with its detailed carvings of gargoyles and water spouts. They decided to bring these inspiring and mysterious pieces to the American consumer, and founded Design Toscano in 1990. Many years later, their selection has grown as they continue to travel the globe and find unique treasures. Design Toscano customers enjoy a selection of Jacquard tapestries, Egyptian-inspired furniture and replica artifacts, Medieval period pieces, and more.
