1. Offset Umbrella

This umbrella seems to be leaning over as if to say, “Hey buddy. You sure you wouldn’t be more comfortable over here?” It doesn’t take much to be quirky and fun.

What’s better than one umbrella? How about 4? Move your umbrellas around and maximize the coverage in your back yard.

3. Simple Setup

4. LED Deck Umbrella

Need a little extra light for dining in the early evening? This LED deck umbrella gives off an artificial starlight effect that works particularly well on nights when the heavens aren’t feeling so generous with the real thing.

 

6. We Are Rollin’!

Umbrella poles can be kind of heavy and awkward to move around. This suggests a simple solution – rock planter on wheels as a mobile base that goes anywhere.

 

7. Pretty Cute

This umbrella looks almost like it belongs in a martini. That’s especially apt if you’re thinking of socializing on the deck. It’s summer. You’re on vacation. Relaaaax.
