It feels like patio season has officially begun in Denver! Our outdoor spaces are becoming an important extension of our homes now that we're spending so much time at home. We recently introduced you to our new outdoor lines, and now we are focusing on our good friends, Santa Barbara Designs. Not only do they craft one-of-a-kind umbrellas, they support their local community and beyond. They have recently been making masks which they continue to donate to local hospitals, and they even sent some to us!
Their latest Inspirations are centered around California, which is so fitting because of the pride they have in community. I hope you enjoy the wonderfully inspired umbrellas below. Also, make sure you click on the umbrella styles you like -- it will bring you to the exact product in our Digital Showroom, and if you're logged in as a designer, you'll see the starting at pricing.
Santa Barbara Designs®
The 2020 Inspirations take their design cues from the landmarks and legends that give California its charm and allure. Whether you prefer Malibu or Pebble Beach, the drama of El Capitan, or the glamour of Hollywood, they’ve got a California Inspiration that will make you feel right at home or remind you of a favorite vacation.
The Malibu Modern
Malibu is more than just sun-drenched beaches and movie stars – it’s a showcase of modern residential architecture, with dramatic structures dotting the coastline. SBD captured the vibe with Malibu Modern, their Stainless Steel Paseo umbrella with a seamed “Vogue” canopy, in Whitecap and Drifting Dune.
The Hollywood Regency
The glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age is forever captured in the homes and estates of the movie stars who worked and played here. This grand tribute to the era is Hollywood Regency, which features Cabana Black Stripe fabric on a domed Mirasol canopy. Brass brush fringe and an anodized gold Mirasol finial complete the picture.
The Emerald Bay
Emerald Bay is Lake Tahoe’s crown jewel – an oasis of shimmering greens, turquoise and blues against a beautiful mountain backdrop. A playground for hikers, bikers and boaters, this national landmark is a California favorite. SBD's tribute to Emerald Bay is a Double Decker with alternating panels of Summer Sky and Santa Barbara Blue, with a scalloped valance and Dragonfly brush fringe.
The El Capitan
Yosemite National Park is home to El Capitan, whose iconic granite walls reflect the changing hues of the earth and sky in shades of pink, lavender and green. SBD pays homage to this natural wonder with their Riviera umbrella in Watermelon and Lavender Cloud, with Fern braid trim on a keyhole valance.
The Santa Barbara Sunset
Santa Barbara is known for its graceful beauty and picturesque location – and for some of the most dramatic sunsets anywhere. The Santa Barbara Sunset features French Pink, Malibu Blue, Watermelon, and Tahitian Blue fabrics, on – of course – an original Santa Barbara umbrella with a teak frame.
Home of the Santa Barbara Umbrella®
From coast to coast and continent to continent, the elegant outdoor umbrellas by Santa Barbara Designs grace the exteriors of the world’s finest private residences, yacht clubs, luxury hotels, exclusive restaurants and high-profile corporate facilities.
With a style for every aesthetic and a size for every space, Santa Barbara Designs is the preferred resource for an international set of design professionals, time after time, project after project.
Bench made in Southern California
Santa Barbara Designs' umbrellas are created entirely in their production facility on the California Coast, using locally sourced materials and vendors from the community.
"It was June, and the world smelled of roses.
The sunshine was like powdered gold
over the grassy hillside."
―Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib
If you've ventured into our showroom lately, it's likely that you've noticed two brand new umbrellas. If you haven't been in lately, or maybe don't reside in Denver, you're in luck, because we've put together our "Umbrella Roundup," just for you. We believe outdoor season is year-round (especially in the Rocky Mountain States), but it is fun to create fresh new outdoor spaces each Spring/Summer.
We're super fortunate to be carrying two FABULOUS umbrella lines who are known for their superb materials, craftsmanship, and style. Santa Barbara Designs and Royal Botania. Keep scrolling for umbrella design inspiration and fun videos.
