Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenMCA High quality umbrella
The pole is heavy duty with a good crank. The cover looks like it will last a long time and is a wonderful soft off white. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flower0929 Beautiful and easy to put canvas on base!
Makes me wonder why I waited so long! I was concerned that I would need help "attaching" the canvas...I'm 64 and my hands aren't very strong. It was a breeze...took me less than 10 minutes. It is easy to crank and is heavy enough not to 'spin' when tilted. I may buy a second one...

Boxes arrived on time and intact. Umbrella was packed well and box can be saved for off season storage. The umbrella color is exactly as pictured and nice heavy weight fabric. Includes ties to tie the umbrella down when closed to eliminate wind damage, don't even have to remove the umbrella from its deck sleeve. Bought two, and glad I did.

I looked for a long time and through many sites to find an umbrella that was turquoise and white striped, and sturdy. I found a bunch that were nice looking but not sturdy enough to last. Then my friend asked if I had checked Ballard Designs and BOOM, there was my dream umbrella, the right color, the right size, and I got to pick the frame! I ordered it and it came within a week. It's a really strong frame and the material for the canopy being Sunbrella is a big plus! Every time I open the canopy it makes me happy.

Umbrella is very attractive. Canopy was easy to attach to the frame. It was shipped promptly. I am enjoying it around my pool!

by pfm1416 So glad I bought it...you will be too!!!!
Love love this umbrella....I was skeptical when it arrived, as the package was so beat up, I was sure it would be a beat up mess. But it turned out to be fine, no damage...The fabric part went right on, although it did help to have a second person to help! It looks great and is sooo nice to have a crank umbrella. I had one for years i had to stand on a chair and try to manipulate...it was awful. This works like a breeze, just crank it either way...to tilt just keep cranking past open and it starts tilting. I got it during a sale, so that really helped; but its worth the price. Just get it, you will not be sorry!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ccccccc deceiving
We purchased this umbrella to go with the Amalfi table. We had problems with the purchase of the table (no parts to put it together and no instructions). They sent the parts and instructions, but failed to send the umbrella insert. We had to call and have that sent as well. When we were finally able to put the table together with the umbrella, the umbrella didn't fit well into the table. Even with the inserts, it is wobbly. What really is deceiving is that in all the photos, it shows the umbrella with a base. We didn't realize that was a separate purchase. This product is over priced for the quality. The only reason I gave it a 2 is because the cover looks nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saf0414 Wonderful umbrella
We needed a replacement umbrella for our outdoor dining table, and I searched around online, but liked Ballard's selection of fabric colors the best. Plus, I was really pleased with the fact that the fabric is Sunbrella. I'm hoping that it will give us many seasons of use, and stay in good shape. The tilt is a great feature, and the color of the fabric coordinates well with my existing cushions. The fabric is thick and sturdy, and it appears to be great quality. Very pleased with this purchase.

We love our SUNBRELLA 9ft. umbrella.
The color is so saturated and such a beautiful shade of blue.
It simply works as it was described to and it adds such
a peaceful look to our patio.
We would recommend it to anyone who is in need of an
umbrella. It is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by catoday16 Met my expectations
The color Turquoise was perfect. The size is perfect. I bought an 80lb umbrella stand to put under the table. Added great stability. I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarciaK Love the fact that you can remove the umbrella and wash it. Also like the crank to open, rather than the draw strings so many umbrellas have.
Love this umbrella. I purchased two last year and another one this year when they went on sale.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nancymary Horrible Quality
I loved this umbrella when I first received it, the key word FIRST. It is now a couple years later and it has not lasted at all! I have only used this at most 5 times because wanted it to last a long time. We put it up for special occasions only. The fabric is not durable and torn and the frame bent. When it is not in use it is in a garage on a shelf so it has no outdoor elements to deal with and has not lasted. We even use the baluster table to put it in and the frame bent. I have not been able to use it this summer/spring at all, it just sits in my garage. A friend was going to order two and I recommended she not because of the lack of durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolly63 9" Sunbrella umbrella:
I was a tad hesitant at first when I saw the umbrella came in two boxes. Yes, you need to attach the umbrella to the pole....and it was very easy! The color, beige, is perfect and our monsoons have arrived here, including lots of wind.
The umbrella has not budged an inch! I love it and plan on purchasing another for over our BBQ area. Thanks Ballard!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Acisse9 Great umbrella and sun coverage!
We love the umbrella. Easy to assemble, durable fabric, strong pole. Tilt feature is easy to use. So far, color-fast despite very rainy spring.
Only complaint was the delivery. Product was back-ordered and the order must have been filled through another vendor. Our name and address were relayed incorrectly, so the product could not be delivered to the correct location. Amazingly, UPS figured out who the delivery should go to despite the errors, but I had to go to a UPS warehouse facility to pick up the umbrella. Ballard, please relay delivery information accurately to your vendors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Onlineshoperlover Perfect!
I waited a year before buying this umbrella because it is a little on the pricey side. However, I was throwing a graduation party and thought it would be perfect. Suffice it to say that I love it and only regret not buying it last year. The colors are wonderful as well as the bronze on the pole. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DFLA Looks beautiful and provides lots of shade!
This umbrella is wonderful. It provides plenty of shade for our large outdoor dining table and the tilt feature is great for angling as the sun moves throughout the day. It looks stunning with the bright blue color and the bronze pole. Overall very happy. Planning for another one for our lounge chairs. Looking forward to seeing how this holds up against the hot and rainy Florida summers. Love this item!

Rated 1 out of 5 by WET3 VERY DISAPPOINTED/UNHAPPY !! - 9' AUTO TILT UMBRELLA
JUST RECEIVED IT - BOX WAS OPENED AND TAPED, FINIAL CAP MISSING - POSSIBLY DUE TO SOMEONE REMOVING THE (MY) FINIAL CAP FOR ANOTHER ORDER!
THIS HAS OCCURRED PREVIOUSLY ACCORDING TO OTHER REVIEWS! ALSO, NO "IN-BOX" INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSEMBLY - YOU MUST GO ONLINE TO DOWNLOAD SUCH.
BALLARD: I CANNOT ASSEMBLE WITHOUT THE PARTS THAT I PAID FOR NOR ENJOY THE PRODUCT FOR WHICH IT WAS INTENDED !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by denny33 I like the color and construction
This seems to be a good product, though I did have to wait for over 7 weeks for the umbrella because I had asked for a black pole for it to match my black patio table. My only worry is that the fabric at the top of the pole where the finial goes has only a little overlap and no seams, so I hope that it doesn't unravel next year. That would leave a hole at the top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jenniferjktx Good umbrella/have to put together yourself
The umbrella is really pretty (green/cream stripes) and goes with pillows we bought two summers ago. The quality is very good. I was quite surprised when we received the fabric one day and the frame the next. You have to put the whole thing together yourself. Luckily, it didn't take more than 10 minutes to do but since the shipping was over $25, I felt like I shouldn't have had to put it together myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBKman21078 Great quality
I have only had the umbrella for a few months but love the quality of the materials and how easily it operates. The auto tilt feature is very helpful in getting the right angle without reaching up to the top of the umbrella since it is a large table.
I like the added feature of a strap to tie the umbrella down when not in use so the wind doesn't force it open or damage it.
A great investment that should last many years.
