We love products that are functional and it’s even better when they can be multi-use too. Thanks to Pierre, who commented on the 5 of the best garden parasols post, we discovered Sywawa and, more importantly, this very nifty functional cube sun shade base.
Designed by Jan Melis for Sywawa, the cube works as a stylish base for a sun umbrella, sun shade or parasol, but can also be transformed into a handy pouffe, or seat too. Just turn it upside down (with the umbrella removed!), pop on the matching cushion, and viola, you have a seat!
The cube base is a lovely modern design to use in your garden and is available in several colours. If you don’t want to use it as a seat, then it would also make a handy table.
One of the stockists in the UK is Made In Design, who have the green cube sun shade base available for £193.
