A pergola or arbor comes in many different styles and is most commonly found in outdoor settings or near permanent structures. This outdoor structure forms a shaded passageway or sitting area with vertical posts or pillars. These pillars support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice or decorative finishes. As a type of open toped gazebos, it may also be an extension of a building bound to the home, or serve as protection for an open terrace or a link between common living areas.
