This parasol is pretty, whimsical, and adding this to even the most urban patio will give you the feeling of lounging under the shade of a big tree! I prefer the white version's airy lightness.
The next best thing to a real canopy of leaves is this wonderfully whimsical parasol from Droog. The lace pattern casts ever shifting shadows on sunny days & a little golden bird perches on top. Also available in white.
