I can use the umbrella and stand in the conversation area or, with a strong person, move the base and the umbrella to the table. The umbrella comes in two parts - the pole and spokes, and the cover separately. It took two of us to put the cover on, but it went on easily. It definitely shades from the sun. I think it is going to work very well when it gets hotter.

I ordered the black floral umbrella and while the fabric was very pretty and seemed pretty durable, I can't help but be frustrated every time i open it because i have to keep re-inserting the fabric into the frame of the umbrella. Also there is no fabric tie to close the umbrella together when it isn't opened. That is a detail that i've always seen come with an umbrella.The worst thing though is the handle. It came chipped. It is extremely poor quality and Its a cheap plastic handle that I would compare with a plastic toy ring from a gum machine at Toys r us. We americans deserve quality and while I paid [$] with shipping and tax, I did so because for that price, I felt like it was an investment and that i would have it for a couple of years:(

Market Umbrella Disappointing
from Western Massachusetts
About Me Midrange Shopper
Comments about Plowhearth Classic Market Umbrellas:
We have only recently received this product but were immediately struck by its overall weak construction. The umbrella fabric is thin as is the pulley rope, and the wooden shaft is more slender than we had hoped. For the price I would expect something more sturdy. It is already bending in the wind on our deck.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Classic Market Umbrella
I loved this umbrella. It fit perfect in the space. I purchased the matching cushions.
Not up to Plow and Hearth's standards
from Alexander, NC
The umbrella goes out flat, no curve, so you will always have to tilt it to be protected. When you close the umbrella, there is no tie to keep it tight. While its lightness makes it easy to handle, I have had umbrellas of that lightness before, and one big wind just either blew it away or bent the pole, so I had to send it back.
So far, so good

So far it has been great and provided shade I needed. We have not had much weather, and I got it at the end of July, so I cannot yet speak to its durability. My 7' umbrella is good for a small round table

almost sent it back
from Chicago, IL
Pole assembly comes in two parts. They did not fit together - and we had to grind down some type of residue inside the larger pole so that the thinner one could slide into it. Almost packed it up and sent it back as defective.

This product is far below your standards. The Canopy is to big for the frame. When it is closed it comes off the frame even with no wind. Low Quality fabric, and the top piece that screws into the frame to hold canopy in place was a flimsy piece of light weight plactic. Nothing like the photos. Very disapointed!I have ordered many things from you in the past and have always been pleased, but not with this item.
from Montgomery county Maryland
I received an email saying that I hadn't been shopping in the store in some time. And it said if I purchased $100 I would receive a $100 gift card within 9 days. It has been well over 9 days. I have called and reported that I didn't receive the gift card. And still no gift card. Why can't you track the gift card that brought be back shopping at your store.

Not happy with quality
By mom of three
from Canal Winchester, Ohio
I bought swing and rocker cushions to match the carnival stripe umbrella, along with outdoor patio rugs for the complete look. Love the colors, agree that the fit is not right as the ribs kept coming out of the canopy. However, the worst part for us was having this ONE month then losing it to a storm due to very poor materials being used. We always leave the umbrella down, unless we are on the patio using it to keep it safe from strong winds. So imagine our surprise when the ribs that hold the canopy on bent and broke into pieces as we laid it flat on the ground! Those ribs are simply extruded aluminum, not quality and not strong enough to last! I asked for and was told I would get a replacement, but have not received it yet. Customer service implied that it was my fault since they are " not responsible for acts of nature". True, but your products should be worth the large amount of money paid for them. This is definately NOT!
I doubt I'd buy it again
from Lexington, KY
The umbrella sits on our 2nd story deck where it gets some wind. I love the colors, true to picture and bright when seen from inside. Love the thickness and feel of the fabric - lets in just enough light to not feel like a cloud. Because the deck gets some wind, we close the umbrella when not in use - who ever heard of an umbrella with out a tie? I've got bungy cord around it which really kills the look. And every, repeat, every, time we open the umbrella (with the tacky brassy plastic handle) we have to put the cover back on the spokes. "Why yes it is a Plow and Hearth umbrella, stand back while I reattach it before we can use it." For the price, I wouldn't buy it again.

Not worth the $
from Boston, MA
like many of the reviews the crank is difficult to use. there is no latch to secure in full open position. in closed position spine comes out of fabric pockets, flaps around in breeze , no fabric tie wrap to secure when closed. i envision this will cause unnecessary wear&tear and early replacement of the fabric. i'm also concerned it will knock over or become air born with a wind gust as there's no way to secure in closed position. the frame is thin aluminum which does not appear to be powder coated for strenghn and weather resistance. recommend you keep the plastic sleeve and box for storage. the cap on the top which secures the fabric to frame is flimsy plastic with plastic screw (male&female), plastic will likely discolor in the sun over time. can't get screw hand tight, almost feels like threads stripped. the tilt mechanism is heavier metal and works fine. [@] have better constructed models for less money.

About Me High-end Shopper
Every time I put the umbrella up I have to reinsert the spines into the pockets. Every time! And, since they are always out of the pockets when the umbrella is down it catches the wind. Definetly would not recommend or purchase again.

Surprised that the canopy was removable on the 7 foot umbrella, the description didn't say it was. This makes it an even better item for us. We have three different locations for seating and each is a little different now we can take the umbrella to different spots and still match the cushions.
from New Jersey
I bought the 7' aluminum umbrella, bronze color metal and red/cream/black stripe canvas. I bought this to use with a small table/chair set... the umbrella is the perfect diameter for the set and the space we have it in on the front porch. The only issue is that the set is bar height, so the umbrella sits a little lower to the table than I'd like. I plan to get an umbrella base that will allow me to add a little height.The colors are vibrant, but sophisticated.
Do it yourself
from Helena, MT
You have to install the umbrella material on the umbrella spokes rather than having the umbrella arrive already put together.

Too loose for the frame
By pool girl
from Duxbury, Ma.
The fabric pockets for the spokes to fit into are too big and everytime I put the umbrella up, I have to replace most of the spokes into the fabric--very annoying and time consuming.
colors matched our furniture perfectly
from Des Moines, Iowa
purchased the umbrella in July and in September. the top "plastic piece" that holds the cloth umbrella on the actual frame broke when I brought the umbrella down. It screws on top and it is just plastic. It just broke & popped off. I was shocked. I know it was not misused on our part so was very disappointed. Perhaps it needs to be made out of metal. I called for a replacement part and Plow & Hearth sent me the whole frame which I did not ask for--I only wanted the top piece. I am wondering if down the road it breaks again will I be able to get a replacement piece???? I was happy with the umbrella otherwise as the color was a perfect match for our furniture.

Product arrived speedily. Assembly was very easy and required no additional tools. Shipping was remarkably fast. I am very pleased with the entire purchase experience.

Love the color
Last year we bought a less expensive umbrella at another store and it completely faded.
poor design allows umbrella fabric to come off the end of the spokes every time the umbrella is closedmaking it difficult to use

The crank needs constant lubrication. The umbrella doesn't fit well. The steel isn't painted well; there are spots with no paint.
from Nashville, TN
Have you ever wondered if the color in the catalog is the true color? Well, what you see is what you get. The color was exactly what I thought I was ordering.

Accents the back deck patio very well, as well as taking care of the afternoon sub at our vacation home. I will purchase another for the picnic area near the lake next season.
from greer, sc
I like to take them out in the evenings so I can look at the sky and these crank down and the top part slips out so I can put it in the corner and then put it back for shade the next day.
I purchased one in 2010 with matching cushions and LOVED it all! So, got another one in 2011 in order to get rid of a huge one I had. This second one is definitely not as sturdy or good looking as the first. The crank is not as sturdy, and the shaft is thinner and not a nice wood color like the first. The tilt mechanism is definitely not as easy either. I bought two stands alike, but because the shaft is thinner on the newer umbrella, it comes out from the stand occasionally when it is windy. Fortunately it is lightweight enough for me to get it back in the stand. When I know in advance it will be windy, I lay it down on the ground. It's still nice, easy to turn the crank and the fabric seems durable.
I would buy this product again
from Minden, Nevada
aaaaaai love this umbrella!!! Evem with our strong winds it holds up well and the color remains bright even after a hot summer!!
from Long Island, NY
Poles slip out of small pockets so they have to be reinserted each time you put up umbrella. Planning to return product.
from Washington DC
The first storm of the season the braces on this umbrella bent. All my neighbors umbrellas survived without incident but this is poorly made and bent within the first few minutes. The base is nice but I find it frustrating that the base requires an extra attachment for the standard umbrellas that Plow and Hearth sells. Should be sold as a package deal.
