I am an Ayous Umbrella Stand. Some things can’t stand being wet. I’m not one of those things.
It’s proven hard for us to find an umbrella stand that isn’t ‘loud’. Most umbrella stands out there are overly decorative or made out of plastic. We live in a home with a lot of wood so it’s really nice to be able to find the right wood to match whatever your décor is and luckily these stands come in a variety of wood types. A lot of umbrella stands are actually unnecessarily big too! I don’t understand why umbrella stands need to hold more than a few umbrellas unless it’s for a giant office building. This one fits maybe 4 umbrellas comfortably – 6 if you really want to pack them in there. It looks the best with 2, to be honest!
