LOVE!! This umbrella is so pretty and really awesome. Because I have a super strong deck construction, my rockstar boyfriend custom designed and welded a solid steel base to hold my umbrella because the base it came with was in no way going to hold up and be stable without buying another base, which would take up a ton of room. He’ll make you one just like mine for $500 plus shipping and no doubt it will outlive the umbrella, my deck and all of us!! Haha.
