Protection from the elements is a must-have for outdoor dining. You can create an all-weather space with a chic, motorised, retractable pergola awning (shown here). It’s a bit pricier than a market umbrella, but you’ll have shade or shelter at the press of a button. Or go for a Vergola roof system, with louvres that open on command and close as soon as they sense rain. For simple style, Luxaflex folding arm awnings are easily crank-operated or can be motorised.
