Introduction to Drape UmbrellasDrape umbrellas are standard, center-pole umbrellas, and are ideal for patio living spaces of any design aesthetic. PatioLiving offers an extensive selection of this distinct style of umbrella. These umbrellas are comparable to the kind of umbrella you would bring to the beach, with the material extending over the sides of the canopy’s edge (hence, draping). This umbrella style is classic and timeless, working as a functional accent in your outdoor entertaining space. These umbrellas come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, patterns, and materials to match your usage and design preferences.
Enjoy Protection From the ElementsThe classic drape umbrellas need to be anchored with an umbrella stand or base, thus making them ideal to withstand adverse weather conditions such as rain or wind. They are the perfect addition to a patio dining area, being positioned in the umbrella hole of a large outdoor dining table and shielding guests from the sun and other elements. Unlike wall-mounted umbrellas, this model is not fixed to any surface. Therefore, it can be moved around as needed depending on the desired layout of your patio.
Drape Umbrella Styling GuideThese umbrellas are extremely versatile and come in a variety of colors, patterns, and materials to fit your patio decor. They can be placed over patio dining tables that have an umbrella hole, or near a patio lounge set to provide shade for your guests. You can further dress up your umbrella with a decorative umbrella stand or base, which not only serves to hold your umbrella in place, but can also be a statement piece of its own. Other accessories available for outdoor umbrellas include umbrella covers, for when your umbrella is folded and not in use, and lights to create a whimsical outdoor space.
