No matter what kind of domestic diva you are, you know how to dress up a patio table – with a colorful or stylish umbrella, of course. And once you choose an umbrella, you’ll need support to keep it in place. An outdoor umbrella stand is your solution.
Before setting up that stylish umbrella, make sure you have a well-fitting umbrella stand to keep it secure. Here are some of our favorites.
With a design reminiscent of a Celtic knot, this cast stone stand adds beauty to the base of your umbrella. The Celtic knots symbolize nature and strength and so does this stand. Made to last from cast composite stone, the 18-inch diameter umbrella stand weighs 22 pounds. The bronze-toned powder coating will keep it rust-free for years. Designed to hold a two-inch umbrella, this base also includes plastic inserts to adjust it for 1- and 1 ½-inch poles.
Outside dining and entertaining have never been more popular. It’s easy to see why since it’s a great way to combine your casual outdoor landscape with your elegant tablescape. Next time you’re throwing a party al fresco, let this fillable umbrella stand take one worry off your list – the flyaway umbrella. We love how it has a handle so it’s easy to move around when you’re setting up your patio for ideal entertaining. Filled with sand or gravel, this bronze base – also available in white and black – will hold your one-inch to one and three-quarters-inch umbrella poles in place.
For large-format and angled umbrellas, these rolling umbrella stands will have you made in the shade. Give your poolside space or patio an upgrade where you can support any umbrella, with or without a table, with this sturdy stand. Forget cement bases that show their age, or sloshy water-filled ones that leak on your flip-flops. Not an issue with these self-centering bases. Popular umbrella styles include hexagonal and geometric shapes, as well as traditional upright styles. If you have big umbrellas, over 11-feet in diameter with poles that range in size from one-and-3/8ths inches to 2-1/16th-inch, this stand can cover all your bases.
Long-lasting and sturdy
We all know the damage too much sun can cause, from sunburns to wrinkles and even eye damage. That’s why we appreciate this easy-to-move umbrella base. Next time you’re headed to the beach, river, or backyard, rather than digging a hole to plant your umbrella, take this umbrella base with you. Lightweight at 22 pounds, it’s made to easily allow you to bring comfort and shade to your party, BBQ, event, or waterside spot, wherever it may be. Once you’ve found your ideal location, simply set it down and set up this attractive black UV- and wear-resistant base that holds your 1.49- to 1.89-inch umbrella pole. Then turn the knob to keep your umbrella secure. It’s that easy to provide comfort and sun protection.
