Buddha at Home

Buddha figurines have become a popular aspect in Asian interior decor scene. The meditating figure ushers in peace and spirituality into any room. Whether big or small, indoors or outdoors, in your drawing room or bedroom, meditating or dancing-- Buddha, with a zen-like  smile-- immediately becomes a centrepiece! Some like to put Buddha on the wall, some on the table, some even in their bathrooms....

So where is your Buddha statue?

Buddha in bedroom

Buddha on a mirrored cabinet

Buddha lamps adding a touch of class

Inviting good vibes in an office

Creating drama with over-sized Buddhas

In other rooms...

Presiding over the dinning area

Looking down benevolently

In the foyer

In the study

Next to the sunken tub

In Zen-like bathroom

On the table

Thai Dancing Buddha
Calm and tranquil

I have added a few more images and am sure you would appreciate them all.

Lovely pictures, and very inspiring! I was raised catholic, but somewhere in our home was always a buddha statue, my mother liked them, said they always looked peaceful and brought good luck - I believe her father thought the same.
I have several in my home, ranging from the fat laughing buddhas, to THE Buddha - and though I would not presume to label myself a buddhist, it is the spiritual path I identify with and follow.

Yes, Buddha statues are serene and they add a sense of peace with aesthetics. Buddha's tenets of love and peace are also eternal.

Thanks Joy. Though I have some Buddhas at home, none of these images are from my personal space. They are a collection from other sites. Enjoy!
