Pagodas that look great come rain or shine


In our blog today I thought we would look at a particular umbrella style that we haven't covered in a while - the pagoda umbrella. The pagoda is an umbrella that looks great whether it is raining or sunny outside as it can be used as both an umbrella and parasol without looking out of place.

The pagoda differs from the traditional umbrella style in the profile of its canopy. The canopy profile starts of steep at the centre and curves through almost 90 degrees to give a very flat surface, and then the profile drops off to an angle towards the edges depending on the model. This is in complete contrast to the flat centre of traditional umbrellas which simply curves down to the canopy edges to form a dome shape. The pagoda also typically has a greater number of ribs, and panels.

This profile gives the pagoda a very elegant and classic look, which can be added to with extra design elements such as different coloured panels, frilly or scalloped edging, as well as the usual printed patterns we see on umbrellas. These all combine to provide a pagoda umbrella that you will always want to have with you whatever the weather is like outside!

So why not check out the selection we have chosen for you today. To see our full range please visit our Ladies' Pagoda Umbrellas page at Brolliesgalore.
