The forecast in New York calls for rain showers for most of this week, a sign Spring has finally arrived. So I thought this would be the perfect time to dedicate a post to my favorite umbrella stands. There's no need to have dripping and soggy parasols sitting by your entry door when you can find so many chic and fun stands out there. Besides adding character to your foyer, these containers will also help protect your beloved floors and keep them puddle-free. Any favorites?
