From the website:

    Outdoor Half-Umbrella

    Our innovative Outdoor Half-Umbrella is the perfect shade over a door, on a balcony or along walls or windows.

    This patio umbrella is great for anywhere you want to add shade without taking up too much space.

    • Sturdy base keeps the half-canopy flush against any vertical surface — no attachment needed!

    • Champagne-toned, powder-coated aluminum frame, pole and base stand up to the elements with ease

    • Richly colored Outdura™ canopies resist fading in the hot sun

    • Easy-to-operate crank makes opening and closing a breeze



Neptune (Blue), Paprika (Red), Citron (Green), Ivory, Antique Beige, Kona (Brown).

Umbrella (9'H x 9.5'W x 4.5'D): $299.

Base (40 lbs.): $99.

Both here.
