Finials and totems are wonderful accenting garden statuary for any area. From decorating the front door of your home, to a gift, finials and totems are great garden accents. Classical finials were very popular during the early Renaissance. These garden accents are an easy way to add a decorative touch to indoor areas as well as outdoor areas. Finials look best when placed upon pedestals or atop an entrance way. Using empty locations like the columns into your driveway, or leading into the garden, finials and draw the eye upward, making the space look much larger without adding too much decoration for classical gardens.
Totems are a wonderful way to convey a symbol or meaning in a decorative manor. Our totems can be placed at the front walkway with your house number or even placed at the front door way with an inspiration quote to welcome guests into your home. The inscriptions in these wonderful carvings is sure to become one of your favorite accent pieces.
Using Finials Indoors
Finials can easily be brought indoors. These pieces of cast stone are great way to accent other pieces of art work in your existing decor. Using finials on each side of your living room console table, you can create an accenting feature that will draw your eye away from modern necessities like a television. Finials can also be placed in a bedroom on accent tables. Decorating shelves with pictures may leave the room feeling empty, try placing finials of different heights next to photos so the average eye will be drawn to your photos and accenting finials. Empty fireplaces are also a great place to put larger finials. Cast stone finials can withstand the high heat that an indoor fire place will put out.
