What Outdoor Table Base Should I Use for Umbrellas?

Pairing tables and bases can be tricky if you’ve never done it before, now throw an umbrella in the mix, and there’s a lot to consider. 

For outdoor tables that you want to pair umbrellas with, we recommend our Palermo single table height or bar height base! This base is a combination of steel and aluminum (which helps prevent rust!) with a powder coat finish in black or silver. But most importantly in this situation, it can accommodate umbrellas AND support your outdoor table tops! 

Use this handy guide to see if a Palermo base will work with your outdoor table tops.  

Table Height  Bar Height 
24” x 24” / 24” Round  ✔  ✔ 
24” x 30”   ✔  ✔ 
30” x 30” / 30” Round  ✔  ✔ 
36” x 36” / 36” Round  ✔  ✔ 
30” x 48”   ✔  X 

Larger table tops will require more support than a single base, so you may need to purchase an umbrella stand where you got your umbrella. This way the stand will support the umbrella, while the table base is focused on the table. When you are purchasing these items for a larger table, just make sure there is room for the stand where you are putting it underneath the table.
