Finding the perfect parasol or shade feature is only part of the process of furnishing your outdoor living area. What about stabilizing it? If you have an odd-shaped umbrella or a challenging location to put it in, consider one of these umbrella bases outside the norm to ensure it stays put in wind and inclement weather.
This umbrella base is one of the most stylish we’ve seen. Made by TUUCI, this Half Aluma-Crete shade anchor is actually made from aluminum although it has the look of wood grain. Its cube shape ensures that it blends right in with your outdoor furniture. There are eight different finishes available: marine silver, white, Java Aluma-Teak, Natural Aluma-Teak, Weathered Aluma-Teak, driftwood Aluma-Teak, cypress Aluma-Teak and Aspen White Aluma-Teak and two different styles. This hefty base would be a great choice to keep a TUUCI Ocean Master Max Classic Cantilever umbrella securely in place.
When style is just as important as substance, the Art Deco Series from Treasure Garden is a perfect choice from our selection of umbrella bases outside the norm. This commercial quality base is crafted from aluminum and comes in your choice of anthracite, black, bronze or white finish. The beautiful design makes this base stand out and compete with the parasol itself for catching the eye. The classic design and light weight mean it would work well with a market umbrella or any small, straight or cantilever shade feature.
Made specifically for cantilever umbrellas, this square umbrella base from Barlow Tyrie features wheels which make it easy to change the location of your shade feature and move it about your outdoor space. This is a hefty umbrella base shown in a diamond champagne finish. Out of the many umbrella bases outside the norm that we carry at Hauser’s Patio, this 38” square model is made to fit only Barlow Tyrie sail cantilever parasols.
Here is another commercial quality umbrella base from Treasure Garden. The square Monaco model’s unique square shape is enhanced by the subtle, cascading steps of the design. This one is also made from aluminum and it’s available in a black or bronze finish. The umbrella bases in this collection are rated to hold up to 100 pounds.
Finally, if you have a particularly large or heavy umbrella that needs a secure stand, the Premium Aluminum Shell by Frankford Umbrellas is your best choice. It can handle up to 150 pounds with ease and comes in four different finish colors. This one is made specifically for table use and features an 8” stem. The 30” round shape and simple style won’t detract from the beautiful furnishings in your backyard oasis.
