Cream of the crop canopies

There is more to an umbrella than just placing it outside. Today's designs feature patented mechanisms, from tilt-and-lock to ball-and-socket. Some have contemporary style with squared or asymmetrical canopies, while others are more traditional, but offer a variety of outdoor-friendly fabrics. Whatever the innovation, these umbrellas are sure to provide ample shade and style.
