Pergolas are structures composed of columns and exposed beams and supported by each other. Generally made of wood, the pergolas give extra charm to the external area of ​​the residences. They can be built in gardens, balconies, backyards, corridors, swimming pools, garages, and wherever else creativity allows.

The pergolas have a hollow ceiling, providing shade and ventilation in the right measure, ensuring tranquillity and comfort for a reading, a rest, or a chat between friends.

Of Italian origin, pergolas are used to support and cultivate grapevines. Over time, also incorporate it into the decoration of houses.

Under the shade of a pergola, it is possible to position chairs, armchairs, and sofas to bring even more coziness and style to your home.
