Umbrella Stands from Around the World

blue products, including an umbrella holder / stand

The rainy season has started in my part of the world - so it's time to look at umbrella stands once again. Let's start with the designs from Italy - including the umbrella stand from Bitossi (shown in the middle of the picture above); it's sold by Design Within Reach. (DWR calls it a "cylindrical vessel," but Bitossi calls it an umbrella holder.) When I first saw this, I thought how my mom would have loved that rich blue color.

The Ombo umbrella stand by is sold by Go Modern in London.

And one final Italian design is this pewter umbrella stand from Match, sold by Unica Home - and costing over $1,000.

Union Jack umbrella stand

This Union Jack umbrella stand comes from - you guessed it - the U.K. Update on Dec. 26, 2012: I'm no longer finding this product.

And finally, this seagrass umbrella holder was (probably) made in Indonesia, and comes to us from White Apple, in Canada.

These are stunning and varied -- as always, Jeri, you never fail to impress. The Elic and the Tetto are my favorites, but I think the Tetto wins for form and function, because the air can dry the brolly faster. Nifty!

Great assortment. Makes me want to add an umbrella stand in my foyer...guess I need a full size umbrella too. :)
