Rated 5 out of 5 by Roozy Great quality
I looked around for a patio umbrella with a color that would give me a sense of calm and blend in with nature's colors. This was it...canvas spa. I have sense ordered the coordinating chair cushions. I have Sunbrella fabric on my patio awnings and am hoping the Sunbrella umbrella fabric wears as well as the awning fabric has. Totally satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KyNc Beautiful colors and great quality
I absolutely love my new umbrella! I've been searching for the right colors that were neutral, yet made a statement. I love the cream and taupe together. This umbrella was easy to put together and is great quality! Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by makeoverpro best buy ever
this is by far the best umbrella we've ever purchased - the color is a brilliant blue and looks fabulous - in addition to looking fabulous it's extremely easy to open and close especially since i'm 4'11" - and even easier to tilt - we couldn't be happier - thank you ballard

Love my new black and sand stripe umbrella. Canopy and frame arrived in separate boxes on different days but customer service was very helpful with tracking info

It shipped in two parts (the canopy was in a separate shipment) but it was very easy to put the canopy on the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lenadigs I love the tilt feature
This is a great umbrella. Do not hesitate to purchase one. I especially like the tilt feature because it blocks the hot TX late afternoon sun,allowing me to stand in the shade at my gas grill! Choosing a color was the hardest part. I think that this is a good purchase and a fair price.

I paired the turquoise with the black pole. It is lovely. The umbrella canopy is a lovely color and the material seems like it will hold up well. I hope to be using this in the next few weeks down at the New Jersey shore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermontee Great construction, good fabric.
The umbrella is just as advertised. The pole is heavy duty bronze color and the fabric is excellent Sunbrella. The mechanism works easily to raise and lower the umbrella. I also purchased a pineapple finial for the top of the umbrella. It adds a nice touch. The umbrella is a beautiful addition to my deck and I expect it will last several years. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a good quality patio umbrella.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PacNWShopper Canvas White Canopy/Bronze Frame
This is a quality umbrella and very reasonably priced in comparison to other 9ft. Sunbrella canopies/aluminum frames. I have been searching for a white umbrella and was excited to order this. However, upon receiving this item, it is more of an off-white/ivory color. Unfortunately, I will be returning this item...very pleased with the BRING HOME BALLAD return policy though (item cost AND shipping costs are refunded).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gladstone BEAUTIFUL umbrella!
Ordered the 9ft delay azure, auto tilt and it just arrived! Absolutely stunning. MUCH better quality than other umbrellas I considered and saw in person at other stores (was second guessing myself-price wise and quality). The pole is bronze and that quality is great also...can't wait for the umbrella stand to arrive (back ordered), so that I can use it ASAP. It will look great on my patio this summer. Ballard quality never disappoints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butch Very smooth operation from straight to tilt.
Since the umbrella has the unique feature of being able to tilt by simply continuing to crank and the use of Sunbrella fabric we purchased 3 of them. Our area gets some gusts of wind on occasion, so we also ordered the extra 30lb. weight which was extremely easy to add - just screw it onto the bottom. Although they haven't received a lot of use yet, I am hopeful that they will stay nice for several years.

by VanWagner Lovely products, very happy.
I purchased 2 of the Black and Sand striped patio umbrellas and 8 of the matching cushions.
They are lovely and are a wonderful addition to the pool area of our condominium complex.
Everyone in our complex has been happy with the purchase - and that isn't an easy thing to do in a complex with 44 residences!
Thanks for the items and the dependable service

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fauxreal Quality and color of the product are fabulous !!
Let me first just say that I absolutely LOVE Ballard Designs!! Everything i order from you is perfect for my
home and has created a warm and inviting environment. When I am entertaining, my friends will invariably ask
...."where did you find that" and my answer
is always "Ballard's"!! The umbrella looks fabulous on my deck overlooking the water.....in that great spa color.....it has the WOW factor, thanks ! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crazy4U LOOKS ok
Due to the late arrival of the umbrella I have chosen to store it without a full inspection, ie the color is good the correct pole was rec'd therefor based on my past experience with products purchased from Ballard I felt it was safe to wait until next spring to make sure all was satisfactory. Also, I was supposed to receive two rug samples with this shipment. I will check for them now and respond accordingly.

I got the red umbrella at the beginning of summer and use it every day. It's on a very sunny and hot deck and has not faded at all. The tilt feature is a bonus. Very simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoBo Just as Good as the Pricey Ones
I compared these to more expensive umbrellas in the exclusive catalogues. I couldn't see the difference so I bought this one. I was not disappointed. Nice quality, easy to assemble, the cranking mechanism works great. I've only had it a couple of months so I can't report on how long it will last, but it all looks good to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I'm very pleased with this purchase!
I did my homework on this (as I always do) and scouted around major chains for quality umbrellas. I wanted quality fabric AND quality framing/hardware. Couldn't find the high quality I require, so I gave Ballard's a shot when I saw it was running a sale on umbrellas. Very pleased. I'm one tough customer and these umbrellas (I bought two) are exactly what I wanted and I'm sure I'll have them for many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCSenior Really bright red
We purchased this umbrella to replace one recently purchased from another online vendor (that one was orange!). At least Ballard has got the color right! This is a RED umbrella. Unit works OK too. Tilt is a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gansett Terrific product; very pleased with quality.
Compared prices and quality features with several other catalog companies because I was a little nervous to purchase something like this without being able to see it in person. Nice crank system and sunbrella fabric. It's only been a couple of weeks, but so far I am very pleased with the overall quality of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dauntlesshopper great product...excellent value !
I am very pleased with my 9' tilt umbrella purchase. Not only was the price the most competitive but the product itself exceeded my expectations. In addition, the umbrella arrived earlier than anticipated (just in time for our July 4th patio party)!
Thank You Ballard Designs !
