Product Spotlight: The Laughing Buddha

Have you met the Urban Barn Laughing Buddha?

One can’t help but love this guy and all he represents: happiness, plentitude, contentment and with a little rub of his belly, maybe some wealth, good luck and prosperity.  I admit we can’t guarantee those things, but we can promise this robust fellow will put a smile on your face!

UB has carried the Buddha for a little over four years now; that’s almost a lifetime in the world of retail! We simply can’t get rid of him; and why would we?  Not only is he a longtime customer favourite, he’s pretty much become an icon for Urban Barn.  Not something to be taken lightly!

That being said we need to take care of this guy and keep him fresh at the same time.  What better way than to add a juicy new colour…or two.  By juicy I mean the ever popular and seasonless apple green.  Be it fashion or home décor it’s tough to resist this refreshing colour and the contrast it offers to the more neutral backgrounds such as brown and grey.

Colour number #2 was all about the glitz and glam: flashy metallic silver!  Shiny, happy people… I mean buddha’s… everywhere.  It’s the perfect accent colour for almost any home.

There’s your sneak peek of our new fall buddha’s….there’ll be oh so many bellies to rub! Keep a close watch on this chameleon….

Do you have one of these guys in your home? We’d love to see! Send in your pics and you could be featured on our blog!

  1. I adore these bubbly Buddhas! I have the teal one from 4 years ago and today I bought the new silver one!! Everything looks better in threes right?? Hmmmm….. What color next? Spike

  2. OMG!! I love these. I had to pin them in my inspiration board! Will be buying next time I’m at Urban Barn. Probably the orange. I have a very similar buddha in a walnut colour and now I’m thinking to spray in high gloss 😀
