When you’re out and about, battling the elements, there’s usually only one place you really want to be: home. So when you come in the door, you need your umbrella stand at the ready. Simply drop in your brolly, free up your hands, and get all that wet gear off straight away! Designer umbrella stands by Schönbuch are the perfect assistants – and a highlight in more ways than one.
A successful umbrella rack design does its job well, offering elegant storage to keep hallways and entrance areas tidy, and floors as dry as possible.
In smaller spaces, compact designer umbrella stands like ANGLE work well. Depending on which version you choose, ANGLE’s oblong or square shape means it fits neatly into a corner or up against a wall. PONTI is also very compact but has a more delicate design. It comes in rosewood or black, the drip tray in black or white marble adding a touch of class to entrance areas. Both ANGLE and PONTI are made of powder-coated metal, making them immune to the effects of water. And for space-saving coat storage to match, check out our range of designer coat hooks. Try the marble DOTS STONE with PONTI, or black DOTS, as an accompaniment to ANGLE, for instance.
In larger spaces, offices, practices and surgeries, space may be slightly less limited, so a less compact umbrella rack design with matching additions could be the way to go. RACK, for example, comes in two versions – with a round or square footprint – and can easily be extended at any time. It can also be complemented with the console table and designer coat rack from the same series for a unified look. SKID comes with a matching coat stand too, and MATCH can be complemented with wall-mounted coat storage, a side table and shelving, all in the same look.
If you’re thinking of matching accessories to complement your designer umbrella stand, don’t forget Schönbuch has a range of useful additions to enhance your hallway setup. Our designer coat hooks are space-saving and attractive, and add charm to hallways and entrance areas. We also design hangers specially to take the weight of sturdy outerwear, and our wall mirror designs make it easy to check everything is in place before you leave the house.
As with all our products, at Schönbuch we take a creative approach to umbrella stand design. In fact, our solutions are so special they add just as much beauty to a sunny day as to a rainy one. The 0510. umbrella rack is elegant yet unobtrusive and, made of glass, it not only provides practical umbrella storage but also looks stylish holding tall flowers or twigs. CARLO, too, can play multiple roles, helping out on rainy days as a designer umbrella stand, or simply adding atmosphere to an entrance area as a decorative, floor-standing terracotta vase. In office, creative or commercial spaces, the designer umbrella racks 0514. and 0533. accommodate rain equipment when needed but work equally well for storing rolled, large-format papers or similar. 0514. makes an attractive waste paper basket that is heavy enough to remain firmly in place but light enough to upturn for emptying.
One of the features that makes umbrella stands by designers at Schönbuch so special is their combination of craftsmanship and materials. It goes without saying that all of our solutions are created to withstand the effects of water. The powder-coated metal of PONTI, MATCH and LEVEL is virtually indestructible. The wood veneer of 0514. is reinforced around the top edge with a ring, weighed down at the bottom by a solid plastic drip tray, and protected with a clear varnish. And the marble base of PONTI not only adds substance and weight to the stand but also acts as a drip tray. With their open sides, designer umbrella stands such as PONTI, MATCH, RACK and SKID allow umbrellas to dry off as fast as possible. The various heights of 0550. make it ideal for storing different formats of umbrella, from pocket to standard to golf.
At Schönbuch, we design umbrella stands that are far too good to save for a rainy day!
