With the launch of Palma, the first automatic garden umbrella, Royal Botania is set to revolutionize the way you provide shade on your patio or garden area.
All of the mechanical cleverness is hidden within. The base contains a quick-release mechanism and the aluminum shaft encloses a gas strut. Together they provide the most convenient operation possible. All you need to do is take hold of one of the arms and start to lift the umbrella. The mechanism does the rest, raising it to a fully open position. By pulling down on one of the arms, you can retract it in just the same way.
No longer do you need to get under the canopy and push the umbrella open or close it. You just stand back and let the patented mechanism do the rest.

Outdoor luxury says it all! Situated in Antwerp Belgium, Royal Botania manufactures outdoor furniture collections designed to be the absolute best. The name alludes to both the natural beauty of lush botanical gardens and the matching supreme “royal class” furniture they create. Initially the focus of Royal Botania was to fuse superb quality and refreshing designs made out of teak wood. Quickly the company became internationally synonymous for quality and design. The reputation and brand name gained worldwide recognition. They soon expanded and introduced lines made of new materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, and synthetic fibers. When it comes to the materials, only the very best is good enough. Royal Botania’s products are sold worldwide and must therefore be as resistant to the desert heat in Dubai as it is to the tough Canadian winters or the high UV-exposure under the Australian summer-sun.

Kris Van Puyvelde and Frank Boschman met for the first time in University, while studying to become engineers in Anverse, Belgium. Years later, in 1992, they met again, both with the desire to start their own business.
Together they wanted to start importing outdoor furniture in teak wood from Indonesia, but soon realized that the products were poor in quality and were manufactured only in colonial style.
They decided to create better designs and raise the quality of the furniture. Within days, the company was born and named Royal Botania, an allusion to both the natural beauty of lush botanical gardens and the supreme luxury furniture they were about to create.
Soon, the company has become internationally known and synonymous of quality and luxury design worldwide. This success has opened the way to new collections of furniture and outdoor lighting as well as bathroom furniture. In line with the growth of the team, new materials such as stainless steel, aluminum and synthetic fibers were introduced.
