10 Awesome Umbrellas
April 16, 2013
Rain rain, go away, come again another day! Usually those are my sentiments exactly. I’m a SoCal sunshine weather type of gal. Don’t rain on my parade! BUT, these interesting umbrellas I recently found on the web have me singing a different tune.
Here are 10 umbrella designs that changed my mind about rainy days:
- Black Umbrella w/ Color Changing Handle – Need I say more about this product? The handle lights up and changes colors, for crying out loud. Not only is that super flashy and fun, it’s also a safety bonus because of increased visibility to others, especially if you’re caught in the rain at nighttime. Conquer the storms and master the clouds young Jedi with this umbrella lightsaber.
- Samurai Sword Umbrella – Slung across your back, no other umbrella looks and feels as cool as this Samurai Sword Umbrella. Take on the rain any time and show those attacking water droplets who’s boss.
- F*** the Rain Umbrella – Feeling particularly edgy or angsty? If you hate the rain as much as I used to, this is as good a way as any to express your sentiments. Just be mindful of where you decide to flip this bird!
- Color Wheel Umbrella - Conversely, if you like to exude joy, do it with a color spectrum umbrella. It’s large enough to surround yourself and a loved one in just about all the shades of a rainbow. It also makes a great gift for your artist/painter friends!
- Sky Umbrella – Brighten up any dull day with this beautiful cheery umbrella from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Store. On the outside this looks like any old thing you could find wherever umbrellas are sold, but open it up to find a surprise inside.
- Goggles Umbrella – I can’t think of a more fun way to enjoy the rain than to see the world through these goggle umbrellas by Designboom. Let your imagination run wild as you go on an adventure as a scuba diver or spy.
- Rain Drops Color Changing Umbrella - When dry, this rainbow umbrella features a white raindrop pattern. After a little rain, a colorful rainbow in the raindrops appears overhead and protects you from from the elements. No need to wait for the rain to end to admire a rainbow!
- Mini Color Changing Umbrella – A delightful version of the color changing umbrella for children. See your kid’s face light up when you show them what this bright umbrella can do. In the rain, fun images and colors magically appear on the white clouds, which is sure to make your child’s umbrella the talk of the school yard.
- Leaf Umbrella – Take cover under a giant leaf! Channel your inner rainforest fairy, or…frog? Who knows, you might score a princely kiss under there!
- Polite Umbrella – Easily adjust this shrinkable umbrella by pulling a handle so that you can protect yourselves from harsh winds or bumping into others. So cool!
