This parasol’s more classic in looks than some of our other designs, with a teak stem that matches its spokes and a natural canvas canopy. You can use it with any of our garden furniture in the centre of a table, and you'll need a parasol base to keep it steady. This one's especially suited to pairing with rattan and timber.
Design & engineering
The stem and spokes
Because we wanted to create a parasol that would feel completely timeless, we chose teak to create the stem and spokes: it’s hardwearing yet tactile and will blend seamlessly with its natural setting as well as our timber, stone and woven furniture.
Teak: in detail
Teak’s a hardwood that’s perfectly suited to life outdoors because it’s resistant to rot. Its natural oils protect it from the elements, so although it will age, it’ll do so gracefully, weathering to a silvery colour. To make this parasol’s stem stronger, it has a steel section in the middle.
The polyester canvas canopy’s made to be hardwearing. It’s been treated so it doesn’t fade in the sun and has an ‘ultraviolet protection factor’ of 50+ (meaning it’ll help shield you against both UVA and UVB rays). It’ll also shelter you in the rain and can be washed and scrubbed without fading.
Inspired by boat design - which can withstand the toughest environments - the rope pulley on this parasol’s secure and longlasting as well as pleasing to look at. It also comes with a guide that shows you how to tie it up neatly.
Using this parasol
With most tables, our parasol will need a separate stand to keep it steady (the only table in our collection that doesn’t need this is Cayton), and we also recommend a parasol lock for extra security. It’ll fit into any stand or table that’s wide enough for its 48mm stem, including any of our own.
