If you’re looking for a Buddha statue for a meditation space, or just to add a little mindfulness as home decor, there are many styles and sizes available in both wood and stone to suit all budgets. The Buddha's hand mounted on a black stand (below left) is in a gesture with the index finger and thumb making a circle, signifying teaching and giving religious instruction and makes an elegant ornament. The seated Buddha in cast bronze (middle right below) is one of our most popular items - back in stock soon in time for Christmas.
With a variety of fabulous home accessories, you can buy the perfect gift to cosy up this winter with our beautiful throws and cushions with many different textures and colours to choose from. Our Marilyn Throws are sumptuous and soft or you may choose one of our Kalli Linen Throws for a more natural look with a soft, slightly textured feel.
Our beautiful ceramic stools are currently available in sixteen colour glazes and styles, many with stunning decorative designs - fabulous accessories with a versatile twist when those unexpected visitors turn up over the festive period and need a seat!
