Best umbrella stands
Hambledon Umbrella Stand
Many of us are seeking a sense of stability and comfort this year, and there’s no better way to make your home feel snug than to echo elements of the natural world in the textures and colours you surround yourself with.
If you’re looking to introduce the grounding feel of the countryside into your interior scheme, adding some earth tone décor accessories, like this handmade oak umbrella stand, will immediately make your space feel soothing. It features a metal tray at the base to catch excess water, and will look amazing in pared-back schemes.
Gold & Marble Umbrella Stand
At the beginning of the year experts earmarked OTT glamour as a trend to watch in 2021, and anything luxurious, lavish and Art Deco-inspired has been tipped to be sweeping Pinterest and Instagram feeds alike over the coming months.
If you’re looking to achieve a glamorous look in your own home, choose furnishings inspired by the flowing curves of 1930s décor and be confident enough to pair them with lashings of bold block colours.
This gold and marble umbrella stand from Oliver Bonas will slot perfectly in glamour-inspired schemes – its angular base is dramatic while the golden brass feels expensive. Style it with tones of midnight blue, deep teal and russet for a glamorous vintage feel.
Holdit Umbrella Stand
Renowned for their straightforward yet stylish designs, Umbra is a winning choice if you’re looking for modern and subtle furnishings that easily slot into your home, whatever the colour scheme.
This black umbrella stand is made of resin which repels moisture, making it a great pick if you’re keen to keep the base free of rust. This should ensure your umbrella stand looks newer for longer. Despite its neat appearance, you can store up to four umbrellas in this stand and the weighted base aims to prevent soggy umbrellas from toppling over.
Square Umbrella Holder Rack
Both fun and functional, this white umbrella stand is sure to liven up your entryway with its dynamic design. As well as umbrellas, this metal stand from Songmics can be used to store walking sticks, wrapping paper and wallpaper.
The small hooks on the side are especially convenient for compact, pop-up umbrellas and there is also a drip tray attached which allows you to keep your floors dry. The anti-skid pads on the bottom of the stand help to protect your floors from possible damage or scratches so this is a particularly solid choice if you have wooden floors.
Rattan Wicker Umbrella Stand
If you’ve opted for cosy, country home decor and you’re trying to find effective finishing touches to complete your hallway, this rattan wicker basket could do just the trick.
The grey wash gives it a gentle look and the thick rattan material makes it a sturdy option. There are two handles so you can easily move it around if you fancy mixing things up. You could pair this item with rattan furniture for an overall natural and relaxed look to your entrance. A cute set of rattan drawers and hand-crafted mirror would look gorgeous matched with this wicker basket.
Umbra Hub Umbrella Stand
With four slots for larger umbrellas and two hooks on the inside for smaller umbrellas, this stand holds more than you might expect, making it a compact and useful addition to your home.
Its curved and neat design lends itself well to narrow hallways and it would work well in a flat if you’re looking to save space. Another timeless design from Umbra that would look lovely with a range of colour schemes, this umbrella stand with its white and wooden combination adds a fresh and light touch to your space if you’re looking to brighten up a dark hallway.

Retreat Jute Umbrella Stand
From its biodegradable nature making it an environmentally-friendly option, to its softness to touch, there are many benefits to jute. In terms of appearance, having jute items in your home helps to create a rustic and unpretentious vibe due to the woven design, giving an all-round natural feel.
This tall umbrella stand is particularly useful for clearing any hallway clutter that gathers throughout the week as any unwanted mess is hidden by the design, so your guests and visitors are none the wiser. If you want to create a jute collection, Amara has a number of jute products, including coffee mats and baskets.
House Additions Umbrella Stand
Adding character to a new-build home isn’t always the easiest of tasks, but there are certain décor tricks that can introduce the charm and personality of a period property into your any home, no matter its age.
Investing in some vintage style accessories can help to give your home a more lived-in, welcoming feel, and if this is what you’re looking to do, you’ll love this umbrella storage from Wayfair!
The crackle glazed ceramic stand has been deliberately distressed to create slight imperfections, giving it an old world, antique look. It’ll look amazing styled alongside some quirky brass decorative hooks, and it could easily double up as a large vase during the summer months. We love it!
Airi Umbrella Stand
Born out of a desire to disconnect from our digital world and return to the simpler days of the past, cottagecore is an aesthetic trend that encourages you to embrace vintage character and even clutter to create a homely, authentic space.
Wayfair’s Airi umbrella stand will make a perfect addition to a cosy country cottage – its iron detailing and drip tray is perfect for contrasting against exposed brick walls and layers of floral soft furnishings. This particular model is designed to hold five umbrellas at a time, but if you don’t have that many, you can always embrace the cottagecore ethos and fill the empty spaces with a couple of rustic walking sticks.
Black Openwork Metal Umbrella Stand with Foliage Motifs
Any interior enthusiast will tell you that bringing the outside in can have an amazing impact on your interior, but turning to stunning houseplant displays isn’t the only way to go.
In fact, the Japanese concept of shinrin-yoku, or ‘forest bathing’, suggests that opting for décor accessories which echo the colours and patterns found in nature – whether it’s soft furnishings with floral prints or the beautiful foliage motifs on this umbrella stand – will add a level of interest to your home while keeping it feeling cosy, comforting and calming.
If you want to bring the Japanese nature craze into your home, this openwork metal umbrella stand is perfect for the job. Style it with lots of rich, warm colours – like the ones in Farrow and Ball’s 2021 colour palette – to make your home feel like a cocooning, cosy sanctuary.
Huldra Umbrella Stand with Shoe Rack
If your hallway is compact, opting for furniture that combines functions is a great way to make a small space feel bigger. With a handy shoe rack attached, this Huldra Umbrella Stand from Made.com allows you to keep all of your hallway essentials stored neatly in one place, plus, its combination of powder-coated metal and natural wood will give any room a sleek, minimalist feel.
If you want to coordinate you can buy a matching coat stand, and there’s even a matching hallway mirror with a handy little shelf attached. Try styling it with neutral, earth toned décor for a calm Nordic feel.
