Protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun when you sit beneath one of our patio umbrellas. These nice, wide umbrellas can be placed in the center of a table, off to the side of a table, between a pair of lounge chairs, and anywhere else that you may wish for a bit of shade. We have many different types of patio umbrellas to choose from, not to mention outdoor umbrella covers that help to protect them from extreme elements or winds during storms.
The patio umbrellas we carry have been broken down into categories to make choosing your favorite even easier. Aluminum umbrellas and wood umbrellas are your standard outdoor umbrella, different mainly by material. Both are strong and durable. If you are placing one in the center of a metal dining table, you will probably want to go with an aluminum umbrella. If your outdoor dining table is made from cedar or teak, a wood umbrella will probably be more to your liking.
If you do not plan to place these umbrellas in the center of a table, you will also need an umbrella stand. These heavy foundation pieces help your umbrella stand upright and give you the freedom to move them around wherever you want them that day. We offer umbrella stands in both modern and traditional designs, so there is sure to be one that coordinates with the style and finish of your other outdoor furniture.
When you are looking for an umbrella with even more versatility, tilt umbrellas and cantilever umbrellas are great options. Tilt umbrellas still offer a strong center support, with the main difference being that the pole that supports the umbrella is able to bend, allowing the umbrella itself to tilt, shielding morning and evening sun better.
Cantilever umbrellas, on the other hand, have a support that is off to the side. This allows you to place the stand next to a table that does not have a center support and position the umbrella over the seating area. This umbrella is a great choice for seating areas that are exposed to direct sunlight. Position one behind an outdoor sofa or loveseat, between pool lounges, or beside a beautiful chaise.
Instead of retreating indoors when temperatures skyrocket, seek shade under one of these beautiful patio umbrellas. Once you choose the style that meets your needs, go ahead and make any height and color selections that are available for that particular umbrella.
