Yes it’s poring down today. So I chose the perfect object from my Pop Up store With much humour the umbrella stand is called Mary P! The designer Eva Schildt has created a very artful and a beautiful object as an umbrella stand. The idea with the sponge sucking up the water is just brilliant as suppose to the umbrella which is protecting us from the rain and getting it away from us! An interesting combination of 2 opposites.
