AcaciaHome Multi Coloured Brolly

Luxurious Stand for Classic and Modern Interiors

Any product made of ceramics can add a touch of luxury and grace to the interior, and the Multi-Coloured Brolly Ceramic Umbrella Stand from the AcaciaHome company has not become an exception to this rule. This stand has a very unusual and beautiful design that will look equally great in modern and classic homes. On top of the lovely design, the Brolly stand stands out for its practicality. It is roomy enough to accommodate up to seven umbrellas or walking sticks and has a watertight base to prevent water leaking. The foam rubber sponge at the bottom of the stand doesn't let any moisture leak out, making it possible to store there even wet umbrellas and raincoats. However, there are a few disadvantages to ceramics stands too. While being a very beautiful material, ceramics is quite fragile and brittle and if you do not handle it with care, ceramic umbrella stand may easily get broken. For this very reason, we'd recommend placing it somewhere in the corner of the hall where neither you nor your children could overturn it accidentally.

The AcaciaHome umbrella stand will be a perfect choice for those people who love stylish and beautifully designed household items. It won't pop out of the interior and will blend perfectly with furniture of any style. Though being made of ceramics, the stand is quite stable and sturdy and, if treated properly, will last you for a long while. Whether you tend to lose your umbrella or you do not have a proper drying place for it, the AcaciaHome stand for umbrellas will help you solve this problem.

Hartleys Umbrella & Walking Stick

Simple and Practical

If you're searching for a practical stand for umbrellas that wouldn't capture a lot of attention being placed at the entrance of your home, we'd recommend you to pay attention to the Hartleys Umbrella & Walking Stick Stand. Made of powder-coated metal with stainless steel rim, this stand looks neat and very laconic. With that, it doesn't look cheap and can actually decorate your hall. Like most metal stands, this model will suit modern interior designs. It will also fit well both big and small halls due to its compact dimensions. But the biggest advantage of this stand is that it is very sturdy and can hold a lot of umbrellas and other small items without overturning. According to the product description, this stand can accommodate up to eight umbrellas, which is more than enough for a big family. It has a reliable watertight base that prevents moisture reaching the floor and features venting holes that provide great air circulation inside the stand for faster drying. This also helps prevent the appearance of musty smells.

Probably few materials can be compared with metal in terms of durability and sturdiness. Unlike plastic and ceramics, metal stands do not break nor crack. Which is why we can safely recommend this stand to all consumers who are in search of a robust item that would fit for the purpose and serve for a lifetime. With the Hartleys Umbrella & Walking Stick Stand, you won't go wrong.

Maribelle MA38

Classic Design and Traditional Form

If you give preference to products made of natural materials, the Maribelle MA38 will come to your liking. Though it doesn't have any frills, the stand looks luxurious and posh as it is. To make this stand not susceptible to water, the manufacturer covered it with a layer of varnish which not only provides additional protection but also allows for a better showing of its wooden texture. This stand is also very compact. It's neither too tall nor too wide, which makes it convenient to place anywhere in the hall. And like most other umbrella stands we reviewed here, the Maribelle MA38 has a ventilated design allowing for storage of all sorts of items including wet.

What we particularly like about this stand is that it doesn't have any excess elements which might spoil your design interior. Designed in a minimalistic style, it's perfect for everybody. Best of all, it doesn't cost as much as many other products made of genuine wood.

Please note that this stand comes disassembled and you will need to put it together on your own. The kit includes handy instructions and all necessary fixings making it easy even for a child to assemble it in less than half an hour.

Wickerworks never go out of fashion and fit all design styles, be it your country house or a modern flat in the town. They blend well with any furniture and do not attract too much attention. The remarkable benefits of wicker products are their flexibility and ability to hold their shape, which makes them not only practical but also very lasting. On top of that, they are very easy to maintain. Speaking of the stand, you won't need to do much to clean it - it will be enough to wipe it occasionally with a damp cloth and once a year treat it with a bit of linseed oil. If treated with care, the FRANK Umbrella Stand will last you for many years.

Some of the other features that make the FRANK Umbrella Stand quite unique are its feather-light weight of around one kilo and two handles on either side that allow for its comfortable moving. With that, the stand is durable and reliable and can easily hold up to 9 umbrellas at a time. Just make sure not to place it in close proximity to the objects that emit warmth and you will not need to think about buying a new one in a long while.

The FRANK 107150 will be a good choice for all those who want to get a durable product for a fair price. It is budget-friendly, attractive and more than lasting.

What Is an Umbrella Stand?

Several centuries ago when an umbrella first emerged, people gave it great significance. For them, it was not only a thing to shield from rain but also a sign of power (state and religious). And although umbrellas have lost their former greatness, they still remain one of those things people select with consideration to every detail, because for many, umbrellas aren't only about practicality but also style and aesthetics.

Today, a stand for an umbrella is no longer a bulky item. On the contrary, modern umbrella stands are designed to be compact and very neat, requiring very little space at the entrance of a home. They can be made of different materials and employ various innovative drying solutions such as sea sponges, built-in fans etc. to dry umbrellas in a faster way. Stands for umbrellas can be produced from plastic, aluminium, steel, and impact-resistant glass. You may also find exclusive eco-friendly models made from leather, wood, ceramics, or ductile cast iron. Since umbrella stands serve not only as a place for accommodating umbrellas and walking canes, manufacturers create them in different shapes and designs so that they would also decorate the room. The forms and shapes are often fancy and unusual, and many remind of works of art. Being quite simplistic in appearance, glass tempered stands will perfectly blend with just about any home interior. Wooden umbrella stands will elevate the interior of places that contain a lot of items made from natural materials. While metal stands will add a finishing touch to a classic interior design or a house that is designed in Mediterranean or Provence style. The choice is quite vast, which makes it easy to pick a suitable one for everyone.
