The outdoor setting was supplied by Nathan Burkett Landscape Architect but I think the chairs might be from Tait Outdoor furniture in Collingwood. Perhaps have a look on line at Tait and Nathan Burkett's website.

Its hard to tell from the photo but another paver option these days is 3/4" thick porcelain pavers which come in 24" x 24" size typically (e.g. http://www.handydeck.com/porcelain-slab-pavers.html)

8. Wooden slatsThis modern style of shade protection is right at home when integrated with a sleek contemporary property. For a structure like this, choose a durable wood to ensure many years of use. Make sure it is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to be sure of sustainable harvesting, and protection of wildlife and the people whose lives depends on the forest.

2. Look to the sideIf your site is wide enough, consider setting up your main outdoor space to the side of your house. Add in large expanses of glass, as the owners have done here, so that both your alfreso area and living spaces are bathed with light. This arrangement also allows light to flow through to all adjoining rooms.
