Crafted to the standards of a luxury racing yacht, this umbrella stands for more than just shade.
While it’s unlikely that seeking a shady spot during 75-mile-per-hour or higher winds is a top thought, RH’s new collection by Miami-based umbrella brand TUUCI (The Ultimate Umbrella Company Inc.) will stand strong. Built to meet Miami-Dade County regulations implemented after Hurricane Andrew in 1992, this umbrella can take on hurricanes and the high seas. But don’t let its romantic Roman key valance fool you—its strength of design doesn’t stop there. Inspired by the luxury racing yachts zooming along the Hudson this month at SailGP in NYC (the new sailing league founded by tech billionaire Larry Ellison and five-time America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts), the marine-grade quality umbrella features an auto-pulley lift system, stainless steel hardware and aluminum ribs for durability and ease of use. So even if the weather is perfect and you’re reading a book poolside without a care in the world, rest assured your umbrella isn’t going anywhere.
