ABOUT Design Toscano UK

Design Toscano was first founded in the USA back in 1990, it has grown to be America’s premier source for Creative Resin Animal statuary and other historical and antique replicas. In the UK we work closely with the Toscano design team to bring you our own flavour of the amazing product portfolio and one of the industry’s most exciting Animal, Statuary and Ornamental resin ranges ever to be seen.

Michael and Marilyn Stopka, created Design Toscano while on a trip to Paris, the Stopkas first saw the marvellous carvings of gargoyles and water spouts at the Notre Dame Cathedral. Inspired by the beauty and mystery of these pieces, they decided to introduce a resin range of medieval gargoyles in 1993. On a later trip to Albi, France, the Stopkas had the pleasure of being exposed to the world of Jacquard tapestries that they added quickly to the growing product range. Since then, our product line has grown to include Egyptian, Medieval and other period pieces that are now among the current favourites of Design Toscano customers, along with an extensive collection of Animal, Classical Statuary, Mystical as well as an Ornamental garden range.

At Design Toscano, we pride ourselves on attention to detail by traveling directly to the source for all historical replicas. Over 90% of our product ranges are exclusive to the Design Toscano brand, allowing us to present unusual decorative items unavailable elsewhere. Our attention to detail extends throughout the company, especially in the areas of innovation and customer service.
