4 Stunning Sculptures that would make your Living Room look Expensive


The majority of people spend a lot of time in their living rooms. They like to relax in these rooms watching television, scrolling through social media platforms on their smart devices, or chatting with guests. If you are not dining with guests in another area in the house, you are probably entertaining them in your living room, so it is understandable that you want to make it appear a little bit more expensive than it already looks.

There are lots of ways of making your living room look better. You could buy a brand new sofa or a widescreen smart television, but these items are often out of our budget. During the pandemic, a lot of folks have found themselves in financial difficulty, but because experts are advising us to stay at home, a lot of people are wanting to do renovations to their homes or buying items to help improve the way your home looks. If you are working on a tight budget, why not consider adding a beautiful sculpture to your living room.

You can go out and spend a fortune on a sculpture to make your living room look better, but there are plenty of inexpensive stunning sculptures readily available online. You don’t have to spend your entire life savings on a top class sculpture, so let’s take a look at some of the best sculptures out there that won’t burn a big hole in your pocket.


If you feel a hand made wooden sculpture would look good in your living room, investing in a handcrafted wooden leaf known as a Decozen might be just what your living room needs. Reputable woodworkers make a variety of different wooden sculptures on a regular basis and put them up for sale on their own web stores and in online marketplaces.

The leaf is held up with a brass rod and connected to a flat base, so you should have no issues balancing it on any flat surface in any area throughout the room. Keeping the sculpture clean is easy, as all you need to do is wipe it with a wet cloth now and again to keep dust off it. However, avoid using abrasive cleaning liquids when cleaning it, as it might damage the sculpture.

A leaf is a symbol of hope, which can help create a positive environment in your living room. You can pick up a handmade Decozen for less than $60. If you find yourself renovating your living room down the line, and you feel the new appearance doesn’t go together with your Decozen, you should easily find another room where the Decozen will look great.


If you know your Greek Mythology, you are well aware of Apollo. Even if you don’t know the first thing about Greek Mythology, investing in a sculpture of him will undoubtedly help add a bit of class to your living room. There are lots of sculptures out there that interpret one of the most celebrated Greek Gods. You can find full body miniature sculptures of Apollo, or you can find a statue that just focuses on his chest and his head. These statues are polished with a substance that makes them look like real marble to give them a classy and modern look.

Some plates look nice hanging from the wall in many living rooms. There are plates available that show an image of the lady Apollo was in love with, Coronide, and his servant, the crow. This comes from a story about Apollo with his crow and the King’s daughter. Those who are familiar with the story might enjoy hanging this ornament off their living room wall.

Metal Art Sculpture

There are lots of sculptures that are made from 100% premium iron that will help take your living room to the next level. Many of these tend to have different layers to help give the design a 3D effect. Metal sculptures with leaf designs are very popular these days, which are available in a variety of colors, so you can easily find one that fits in with your living room’s color scheme. These sleek sculptures can make a huge difference to your living room, along with making the entire room look more modern.

Although these are designed to hang off the wall, you can place them on a mantlepiece, or another type of shelving within your living room. Some come with stands, so you can place them on a stable counter while others only come with a hook for hanging. If you are buying one, make sure it is anti-rust so that you can clean it with a damp cloth. If it is not anti-rust, make sure you don’t get any liquids on it. They are available in a range of different sizes, so don’t forget to measure the area you want to put the sculpture in before you buy it. Most of these are already assembled when they arrive, so you don’t have to worry about putting them together.

A Pair of Metal Golden Birds

These small cute birds will help you bring a bit of style and nature into your living room. These shiny ornaments will give your living room a unique look, and they will look great in any area throughout your living room. If you have a bookshelf in your living room, it might be a nice idea to put one next to the first book on the shelf, and another one at the end. However, they will also look good on a coffee table, a mantlepiece, or even on top of the television.

Nature sculptures remind people of the great outdoors, so they can help create a nice and relaxing atmosphere in your room. These are often made of brass, and although they are for sale in a gold finish, you can also buy them in silver too. If you have pictures in golden or silver frames in the room, it might be a nice idea to put these sculptures close by, to add to the color scheme of the room. If you have small children in your house, they will probably love these birds. They are made of solid material, so if children were to drop them, the chances of them getting damaged are highly unlikely.


If all you have in your living room is a television and a sofa, you could have a lot of fun decorating it with a few inexpensive sculptures to create a top class living room. These sculptures allow you to transform your current living room into an art gallery in a very short space of time, with very little effort. With so many online stores selling lots of different sculptures, you are bound to find a few that won’t cost you a lot of cash. However, it might be worth checking out the second hand charity stores in your area. People are constantly getting rid of their ornaments, and you might find some great second hand items in these stores. Plus, the charity gains from it too.

If you are buying a sculpture online, find out if you can return it if you don’t like it. Images online often look different when they arrive on our doorstep, so it might be in your best interest to ask what the seller’s return policy is.
