Lets be honest about buying items over the net. Looks can be deceiving. As it turns out, the pictures and descriptions were good. This umbrella is a great value for the money. Good quality wood frame and a canvas type topper. We are very pleased. Several others were allot more money for what I assumed is the same imported umbrella. Don't hesitate to buy this.

This is a great umbrella for the price, I have an older one which is much heavier wood, and heavy sunbrella canvas, but it cost $500 more, so for $$$ I am very pleased with this one.
That said, it is not nearly as sturdy as the expensive one, I bring it inside when the wind blows over 25mph because the wood seems fragile. But it offers great shade and does really well in a light wind. Great product for the price. Also great service from Overstock, the first one shipped was damaged, they paid for return and shipped a new umbrella that day. Thanks Overstock!

Umbrella arrived quickly, we set it up easily. It is heavy so having a firm base for the pole is important. We use it with an outdoors table that has a center hote for the pole, so it has some added stability. There is a small area in the pulley ropes with frayed fibers, we'll see if it becomes worse. We have had it for about 3 weeks and it works very well. The canvas is thick and sturdy. Very satisfied.

Broke in less than a month- not a windy day but a rainy one- snapped I can't even replace the pole. Manufacturer's warranty doesn't cover anything (no wind or rain damage). Be careful of selecting this product. I bought a cheap one from the grocery store, it held up much better. Overstock resent a new one since it was only 30 days before it broke. Overstock is outstanding- this product not so much.
This umbrella is perfect. I have had it up all summer. It is a great size - not too big or too small. Quality of product is great. The color is forest green and it hasn't faded at all. The wood is solid.
We have no porch, and wanted to create a little oasis outside our house. We ordered this shade umbrella (and a separate base) and are very happy we did! The 11-foot umbrella is just perfect for a little bistro table/4 chairs. A great purchase for us!
I love the look of the umbrella. I wanted it to provide shade over a small outdoor table but as the sun moves it comes under the tall umbrella. You can't tip it to prevent the sun from hitting the table and chairs. I thought because it is so wide,11', it would do the job but it doesn't. I had the pole cut down by 13" and now I get a better shade cover. Also if you are short you can not open and close the umbrella. This is a major problem in a windy spot. With the pole shorter I now can open and close it.
Hello hsv1121, other customers have reviewed that the umbrella does not fade much with regular use. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 5, 2013
The fabric has not faded at all. I have had it up all summer.princess1234567 on Aug 12, 2013

What are the dimensions of the box it is shipped in?
I need to know cause I need to take it to another location to installgilsnyc on Jun 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You'll be fine. The pole comes together in the middle so the box is a large tube about 8" square by approximately 6 feet long. Be sure to note the pole diameter. A standard size umbrella base is too small. You may need to order the one shown (Resin Sunflower)galiz on Jun 4, 2013
Hi shuale, unfortunately this item does not come with a recommended weight for a base. Industry standard for safe operation dictates up to 50 pounds or more depending on the wind in the area. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 24, 2013
at least 50lbs, that what we are using.skippy3508 on May 17, 2013
The initial description states the umbrella comes with an attractive "base". Further down in product details it states base not included. I really need the base also.mvarnforesthillmaryland on Mar 31, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you mvarnforesthillmaryland, for calling our attention to this error. The base is not included and we will correct our description. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 3, 2013
you will need a base with a larger hole. My 50LB base were too small so we made the bottom smaller around.skippy3508 on Apr 16, 2013
This does not come with a base.
Here is a link with all the bases we sell.
