Not just for holding brollies, you can also use your new umbrella stand for holding Nan’s walking stick – or for storing an eyesore shoehorn out of sight. Choose a decorative metal umbrella holder to make a statement, or opt for a sleek black umbrella stand to fit with your modern interior. Umbrella baskets are also popular, especially in boho or Scandi-style homes. Pick one of these gorgeous designs to brighten up your space, but be warned: with such smart storage, you may need to invest in a few new umbrellas! Here are our top umbrella stand picks for hallways, from everywhere including Amazon, Argos Home, Oliver Bonas and more.
