Like haunted yurts and makeshift Mystery Spots, garden statuaries lend an air of intrigue to backyard spaces. Harness stone-solid décor with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of home furnishings, garden décor, and accessories at Décor Statuette in Sterling Heights.
Décor Statuette specializes in traditional and European furnishings, embellishing homes, gardens, and interior spaces for more than 40 years. The large warehouse houses a selection of imported art and antiques, from massive mirrors to glossy wood bathroom vanities. An outdoor trove shows off a lineup of concrete tiered fountains ($400–$3,000) and shapely stone statuettes ($25–$650), ranging from whimsical to classical, with handcrafted figurines, damsels, cherubs, and lions, all made in the United States. Stone benches provide solid seating for garden-dwelling gnome hunters, and concrete flower pots ($50+) shield delicate plant life from the ravaging effect of nature. Indoors, secure a decorative centerpiece bowl ($75+) to ensure dinner conversations of the finest quality, or grace a foyer with a pair of classic marble columns, the perfect companions for a cardboard cutout of Scarlett Johansson.
