They were named in Inc. magazine's list of the 500 fastest growing privately-held companies for three consecutive years. The founders created Design Toscano in 1990. While on a trip to Paris, they saw the marvelous carvings of gargoyles and water spouts at the Notre Dame Cathedral. Inspired by the beauty and mystery of these pieces, they decided to introduce the world of medieval gargoyles to America in 1993. On a later trip to Albi, France, they had the pleasure of being exposed to the world of Jacquard tapestries that they added quickly to the growing catalog. Since then, the product line has grown to include Egyptian, Medieval and other period pieces that are now among the current favorites of Design Toscano customers, along with an extensive collection of garden fountains, statuary, authentic canvas replicas of oil painting masterpieces, and other antique art reproductions. Design Toscano, takes pride in the attention to details by traveling directly to the source for all historical replicas. Over 90% of the catalog offerings are exclusive to the Design Toscano brand, allowing us to present unusual decorative items unavailable elsewhere. Their attention to detail extends throughout the company, especially in the areas of customer service and shipping.
