Cabana: A staple of sandy beaches, sprawling poolside patios, and rooftop clubs, beach cabanas are spacious accommodations found in exclusive hospitality settings where vacationers travel in search of la dolce vita.
The larger relative of the rectangular patio umbrella, these dual (or multi) pole shade solutions provide shade for large groups of people dining and socializing at a park or relaxing at the beach. They can range from permanent to semi-permanent to portable.
Traditional outdoor cabanas drape weather resistant fabric over a sturdy aluminum frame with a fixed roof and adjustable curtains. More modern interpretations, such as the minimalist Woodline Sky, remove excess fabric in favor of a floating canopy that still provides shade for a large group.
