Choosing the right in-ground fitting for my umbrella


I’m currently remodeling my backyard and I would like an umbrella for the lounging area, but choosing the right base is more challenging than expected.

I hate movable bases, so I’d like to install an in-ground fitting. However, I’m not ready to settle for a specific umbrella make yet, and I’d like to make it as flexible as possible, in case I decide to change the umbrella in the future.

Is there a standard type of fitting, embedded in concrete, that I could attach any adapter plate to, and use any type of umbrella?

See image attached.

Thanks for any tips!
