Summer is fast approaching, and along with it – the promise of long, sunny days. We all love a blue sky and a light breeze – but here in Australia, our sun can be unforgiving.
We receive much higher amounts of UV radiation than Europe or the USA, and too much sun exposure can do serious damage to our skin.
The addition of an outdoor umbrella on your deck, backyard or patio can help to protect you and your loved ones from harsh rays. Enjoy the outdoors all afternoon without the danger of prolonged sun exposure.
Cosh Living represent luxurious Belgian brand Jardinico, who specialise in high quality umbrellas for residential homes, hotels and resorts. With more than 15 years of experience, Jardinico combines style and functionality to produce a range of umbrellas that suit every home. All Jardinico materials are tested for water exposure, UV resilience, mould and mildew resistance.
There are two main styles of umbrella to decide between, based on your needs. A Centre Pole umbrella and a Cantilever or ‘Side Pole’ umbrella.
Centre Pole Umbrella
A centre pole is the classic look most would imagine when picturing an outdoor umbrella – a single, straight pole topped by a canopy and grounded by a base. This style of umbrella works perfectly to protect you from overhead sunshine at the hottest parts of the day. With lockable wheels on the base, you can move the umbrella to the desired location.
The Centre Pole Umbrellas at Cosh Living are the ‘Caractere’, available in a 2.3 x 2.3m canopy. They are available in both White/Graumel or Charcoal/Dark Taupe colourway options.
Side Pole Umbrella
If you have an open outdoor space which receives a lot of sun throughout the day, consider a cantilever or ‘Side Pole’ umbrella. These umbrellas feature a large base with a pole reaching to one side. The canopy cantilevers out, and allows maximum shade without the interference of a pole.
Jardinico Side Pole umbrellas are highly flexible. The most popular canopy size is 3m x 3m fully open, and is enough to cover a large dining setting our lounge area. . Sitting on a base with lockable wheels, you can move the umbrella to where it is needed at any time. These umbrellas can spin 360 degrees on the base, and the canopy can angle up and down, and tilt left and right. A tilting canopy allows shade from lower sun rays sneaking in from the sides! Wherever the sun is – these umbrellas have you covered.
The Side Pole Umbrellas at Cosh Living are the Caractere, and Antego.
The Caractere features a base in sturdy powder-coated aluminium, and is available in both White/Graumel or Charcoal/Dark Taupe colourway options.
The Antego features a base granite stone, and is available in a range of sophisticated tones.
