4 Distinctive Umbrella Stands
Silver Metalla Can by Umbra
Although this vessel has a lustrous finish, it’s actually made of biodegradable polypropylene. Because of its small size, you’ll never have to fish for shorter umbrellas.

Owl Umbrella Stand by Two’s Company
Who gives a hoot about a dreary day? Place this playful ceramic owl at your front door to greet guests and corral drenched gear.
To buy: $140, amazon.com.
Cube Umbrella Holder by Ideaco & Associates
This resin cube makes a stylish statement in any home or office. Small enough to tuck into a corner, it keeps up to nine umbrellas neatly aligned; a removable tray catches water runoff while they drip-dry. Available in multiple colors.
To buy: $44, semsons.com.
Umbrella Stand by Eva Schildt for Design House Stockholm
Like Gene Kelly in Singin’ in the Rain, this slanted, painted blue steel holder seems to defy gravity. It features a polyester umbrella (shown) to add to your collection and a natural-sponge base that absorbs errant droplets.
