Introducing made in USA, Exclusive, Custom Designer Sea Island and Floral Umbrella Collections. Made to Smile Sunshade.
By Melinda Merijanian, Product Development Director – As a Master Gardener, I have a great appreciation for our garden treasures. I also love, love, love holidays at Florida’s Emerald Coast. So, when our design office was asked to create an exclusive, made in USA custom umbrella program, I couldn’t wait to get started and dream along the way of my garden and beach visits. Creating custom trims to coincide with the new Designer Floral and Sea Island Custom Umbrella program was truly a rewarding experience. The fabrics and trims are weather hearty, fade resistant, solution dyed acrylic and will withstand years of harsh sun.
Our custom bullion fringe collection came to realization, as we dreamed of walking along the beach with wet sand at each step, and a breezy salty wind in our face. Miriam Leuthold, our designer and I certainly enjoyed the educational experience of creating and coordinating bullion fringe.
And of course, dreamy custom bullion fringe names followed;
Sea Glass, Coral Rainbow, Beach Ball, Tuscan Sun, Emerald Forest, Ocean Waves, Sand Dollar, White Sand, and Island Embers. See these featured on the Swept Away and Coral Reef umbrellas.
Please let us know what you think as we share our inspirations along the way with you. And by chance, if you are so inspired register with us at www.DesignerCustomSource.com
1. Designer Sea Island Umbrella Collection: Coral Reef, Fresh Fish, and Swept away
Coral Reef – This eye-catching, colorful umbrella provides a personal ecosystem of shade. Our striking 9′ Coral Reef Market Umbrella features an awning grade Sunbrella Ginkgo canopy lined in Sunbrella Tuscan. Custom Coral Rainbow 4″ bullion fringe pulls this vibrant palette together with a multi-splash of design and color. All of this energy is arranged atop a 9′ heavy-duty, commercial aluminum frame with pulley lift.
Fresh Fish – This fish story comes standard with a 9′ wood market frame and pulley lift. The umbrella’s easy maintenance, 5-year no-fade, 100% solution dyed acrylic is from the Outdura Fresh Catch Collection shown in Go Fish Skipper Blue. The fabric is two-sided; skipper blue ground and cream fish with red, blue, yellow and turquoise eyes on top and skipper blue fish with cream eyes and ground on the underside. We added the solution dyed-acrylic Atlantic 5″ tassel for an extra splash of fun. From the backyard, sandbox or the beach, this whimsical vented market umbrella is playful enough to laugh at Mr. Sun!
Swept Away – Getting swept away by the sea of color and beach inspired custom bullion fringe in Sea Glass is a delight. Our 9′ Swept Away Market Umbrella features Sunbrella Aquamarine awning grade fabric with coordinating 4″ sea glass bullion fringe. All of this sea island splendor is arranged atop a 9′ heavy-duty, commercial aluminum frame with pulley lift. Coming soon, a collection of color choices with coordinated custom bullion fringe.
