Things have changed quite a bit since the days of the typical gazebo being a bland part of your outdoor furniture setup. These days’ designers are trying over-the-top styles and crazy additions. You may have heard about a few already but we are going to discuss a few of the more interesting ones. Some of them you may want to purchase but at any rate it should get you thinking outside of the normal mindset of the boring gazebo in plain colors and textures.
The old ways of thinking about a gazebo are mostly dead. Sure people still make them but they are no longer constrained to one style. The ones of today hang, swing, spin, sit and sear food with fire pits in the middle. Some of them double as offices if they are constructed in a tremendously sturdy manner. They can even have many of the modern conveniences that you would expect from an actual room. So we are going to explore how things have changed with these.
The ultra-modern gazebo is also a part of modern outdoor furniture as much as anything else. Pieces like these often have built-in lighting and heating elements. Some even have outdoor power adaptors so that you can take your office outside to enjoy some fun. Many of them also have very sturdy roofs with overhangs to keep things safe from the natural ravages of weather. One excellent example of this is the “Beehive” style that can fit 20 people in and can have a variety of plush additions. It is very popular at high-class restaurants.
Of course the interesting changes in the style do not stop with simple additions of style. There are also truly unusual ones such as “the Gazebo outdoor chairs”. These extremely strange and intricately crafted pieces of outdoor furniture look very strange and are popular in gardens. Why? Because they have two chairs built into a sweeping overhang that will guard guests from rain and sun. It creates an arch which looks like a tree has grown between two wood chairs.
What about the pieces that hand around outside? While there are many types one is called the “Nestrest” which is very popular in France. The gazebo itself hangs from a tree and provides an enclosed space that people can relax in away from all the various troubles and work that the world normally brings them. It gives you a feeling of being away even if you are in your own yard.
These are just a few of the new styles. Some are pretty much fully functional rooms with everything someone could want. Others are little more than a tent with some plush seating that helps people relax for a bit out of the elements. When planning your next project just be sure to keep in mind that you do not have to stay traditional with anything. Create your own special look with the materials you want. You may find that those around you appreciate it more than you thought.
