The Chinoiserie Umbrella Stand

Darryl Carter
Filled with umbrellas, antique walking sticks, or even tennis racquets, a Chinoiserie umbrella stand is a functional and elegant touch just inside your door. Choices include blue and white Chinese porcelain, faux bamboo, or real bamboo.

The Pink Pagoda

Jennifer at The Pink Pagoda uses this 21 inch vase as an umbrella stand in her own foyer and sells it in her store. This is gorgeous! Large vases or ginger jars work beautifully as umbrella stands. Just make sure they stand somewhere between 20" and 24." Also, a head's up that The Pink Pagoda has restocked some of her very popular blue and white Chinese porcelain pieces that have been out of stock. See them all here.

Nice! I use my tall b/w vase as an umbrella stand, too. I move mine all over the place...change it up. :) franki
