It's a dreary, gray, rainy Monday here in New York. However, the rain did remind me of a post I've been meaning to do for awhile now. This past year, I came across a modern, clear glass umbrella holder. The funny thing is, I don't know where it was that I spotted this fun idea...(which is very unlike me). I knew for sure I wanted to add one to my own home. I like the idea of adding modern elements to my traditional center hall colonial. I also love searching for objects on the internet, that I have come across either in stores, magazines, blogs or friends' homes. I love the hunt! However, this time I was stumped. There was nothing. I googled my heart out, I inquired at local design stores, no one knew what I was talking about. Then, one day, a catalog came in the mail, and I spotted these!
Could these cylinder vases from Crate and Barrel be just what I was looking for? I quickly took out my measuring tape, and decided that the second tallest one might just do the trick!
And, here is the result! It's not the exact umbrella stand that I once spotted, but I love it just the same!
but, if anyone out there should know of a glass modern stand, ...please let me know!
