Since 1985 James’ appreciation of the elegant and functional has been evident in the beautiful furniture he has created, developing into a very successful launch of the first wood and canvas parasols , internationally unique at the time. Bespoke furnishings, designed and manufactured by his company, Town & Country Furniture, grace many a beautiful residence, hotel and boutique in South Africa.

Classic Parasols heritage is synonymous with quality and styling, extensive research and development. In addition to the traditional Saligna range, an exclusive selection of oak with brass fittings has been launched.


The Quality of Canvas we use is supplied and manufactured by Cedarbrook Fabrics, a market leader in fabric in Cape Town South Africa.

The Canvas is made from solution dyed polymers which are sourced in Europe, meaning the fabric has a much greater resistance to fading and hence the guarantee.

The fabric is made with more stretch in order for it to extend perfectly on the frame of our parasol.

The fabric is treated with a fluorocarbon, a oil and soil repellent finish, for quick drying and easy cleaning. The fabrics can be both washed and dry cleaned, followed by air drying, not tumble drying, and warm ironing. A biocide is also added during this application to help prevent mildew. These treatments are done with chemicals sourced from reputable companies, and are not in any way toxic. This Canvas compares to the best in the world hence our choice.
