Tranquility for the bedroom
Looking to inspire a restful sleep or create a sanctuary for relaxation in the bedroom? Lladró specializes in figurines that convey a peaceful demeanor and comforting display. The ‘Sleeping Girl’ piece for example, is a gorgeous display of serenity and spirituality. The crisp white porcelain angel is uniquely both sensuous and demure. This angel’s celestial appeal will fill any room with her soothing grace.
With a youthful frame and delicately crossed legs, this angel strikes a contemplative pose while resting on her elbows in a gentle prayer pose. Intricate details like realistic feathers on the wings, an ornamental arm band featuring green ivy and crisp leaves and flowing hair in the softest shade of dusty blonde make this a true collector’s piece. The piece is completed by its overall soft matte satin porcelain finish.

But you don’t need a holiday to celebrate the beauty of Lladró porcelain figurines. Many figurines are perfect for a living room or dining room and will add a distinct feel of artistry and luxury to any decor. ‘Soft Breeze’, for instance, will cheer up any room with its vibrant joy and charm. The young girl stands poised, looking forward as her shoulder-length hair, wispy dress and aquamarine scarf are moved by the wind. Floral touches on her dress and in her hair add a burst of pastel color to the piece, while her dress is elegantly detailed next to the tuft of grass under her feet.
‘Elegant Touch’ is another perfect piece for a home’s gathering spots. Guests to your home will delight in this piece’s endearing display of childhood fancy and the bond between a girl and her dog. Show your love for laughter and your soft spot for animals with this charming figurine which showcases Lladró’s skill for crafting pieces featuring innocent faces and evocative scenes.

The stunningly rich wedding gown is masterfully sculpted to realistically mimic the draping of silk, while the happy couple’s faces gracefully tilt toward each other with the bride shyly meeting the groom’s eager gaze. Here the magic of a Lladró piece can be experienced. This simple sculpture transports you instantly back to this special moment and those cherished emotions, whether for a first or 50th anniversary.
A truly happy holiday
Lladró also creates special pieces that are perfect for the winter holiday season. It is sure to be a happy holiday when you display one of Lladró’s specially created winter-inspired pieces like ‘Talk to Me’, a figurine that joyfully celebrates the winter tradition of snowman construction, right down to the carrot nose!
This is one of Lladró’s most colorful pieces and features a charming little boy gently prodding his newly fashioned snowman to life. Full of animated detail and elegant shades of blue, white and brown, this is one piece that will make you want to curl up next to a fire with a cup of hot cocoa and hope for a snow day.
Additionally, Lladró creates commemorative ornaments, like the porcelain Christmas tree ball, exclusively created to commemorate a specific year, these ornaments are retired shortly thereafter. Beautifully engraved silhouettes and hand-painted matte finish ensure these pieces will become cherished family heirlooms that will be the obvious centerpiece of the Christmas tree.
