The sheer quantity of personal shade continues to evolve as designers experiment with materials and ability. From beach umbrellas that stick in the sand, to huge structural umbrellas that are bolted into concrete, there’s form and function for any situation – poolside, dockside or curbside. Choose umbrellas that tilt or pivot 360 degrees, wood or aluminum poles, crank or push-up lift – most made with marine-grade fabrics that won’t fade in the harsh sun.
