The Easy Sun parasol is world re-known as the best cantilever or off-set umbrella in the Casual Furniture World. Designed in 1995 and patented Worldwide, the Easy Sun quickly become known for its unique dual curvilinear design which not only gives it a very unique and special look but also is the key to the ease in operation. The slide mechanism is a revolutionary idea used by the German inventory/engineer who brought this piece of work to life. The base is easily filled with sand to give the Easy Sun the heaviest and most substantial base. The off set umbrella design offers a large amount of shade without the base being in the way. Because of the dual curve design, the Easy Sun extends farther away from the base that any other cantilever umbrella. This makes our design great for a patio dining set, deep seating collection, conversation group, by the pool, or covering your spa. Your neighbors will be envious of the European design and look. Available in lots of colors.
