Custom Pool and pergola

Shade is one of the most important exterior design elements. Not only do they provide areas for sun protection, but they are also popular gathering spots on patios, decks or other outdoor areas. Shade areas can become used as architectural and sculptural design elements as well.
Considering shade options as we design expanded outdoor environments is an integral component, says Vern Chellberg, Principal at IVY STUDIO, a design and build consulting firm based in Massachusetts. It really should be part of the overall trend towards designing and building the entire outdoor environment. For some projects, the treatment takes the form of permanent structure, umbrellas or freestanding cabana, shade sails or retractable awnings.
With so many design options fueled by increasing market momentum, perhaps it is time to consider shade structures in the same favorable light as outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and fire pits.
