Southern Patio, Southern Butterfly was the brand of off-set or side pole umbrellas that turned the backyard & patio umbrella market on its head about 20 years ago!
Southern Patio was the first company to have a patented product that sturdy, good looking, and almost most importantly, priced right for the average homeowner. Southern Patio, Southern Butterfly had many styles and sold through a variety of brick and mortar as well as online establishments (such as Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, Lilian August, and many others) over the years. Southern Patio had well over 500 variations of the umbrellas over the years.
The sizes and shapes were: 7.5 ft Square single top, 8.5 ft Square Single and Double top, 9 ft Square Double top, 10 ft Square Double top, 10 ft Round Six rib, 10 ft Round Eight rib, 11 ft Round Single and Double top. Take a look at some of the pictures below.
Unfortunately, Southern Patio, Southern Butterfly closed there umbrella operations in 2012 as the owner of the (in his late 70's at the time) company retired. They continued to be able to supply us with replacement through 2016 and then in 2017, our company purchased the remaining inventory of canopies. At this time, we are completely sold out of 8.5 ft Square Double top replacement canopies, 9 ft Square Double top replacement canopies, 10 ft Square Double top replacement canopies, 10 ft Round Six rib (a very few left), and 11 ft Round Double top replacement canopies. Sorry, but we do not have any other parts for these umbrellas.
Today, PoolSpaGuru.com still sells replacement canopies for many of these umbrellas. To see if we might have a replacement canopy to fit your umbrella, please call or email us - 866.385.4930 or email@example.com .
When calling or emailing, please check your umbrella for the UMB number found on a small, oval brass plate on the main pole of the umbrella near the crank handle as shown in the picture to the right above. Even if the plate is difficult to read, please email or text a picture of the plate & we'll be able to figure it out.
