You have created a haven...the Adirondack chairs are lovely. I, personally, love the gravel as it coordinates with the look that is trying to be created. Definitely a must try for next summer!

Plant material? - This setting took my breath away! It is so lush and the architecture is gorgeous! Can you specify the plant material on the trellis and the pergola? I think I see some wisteria there, but what else is growing here? Thank you!

Atlantic Patio Furniture
15 years in the weather - they must have been teak and that's what I call excellent value! We also have very similar chairs here: http://atlanticpatio.com/seating/adirondacks.html
Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Don't block off your entire view. Landscape architect Clodfelter is all about privacy, but he likes to open up small windows between his property and his neighbors' for the occasional "borrowed view." Here in his own garden, he used jasmine and ivy to create a partial partition but left the middle of the trellis wide open.
Imagine this sitting area in the middle of an open lawn. “Cozy” is not an adjective that comes to mind. But enclose it within a simple vine trellis and a rich bed of greenery, and it takes on an intimate personality conducive to hours of conversation and relaxation. Tip: If your goal is to create privacy for your dining patio or reading room — or any space where you’ll be seated — a 5-foot-tall hedge or wall is all it will take to make you disappear. Any taller and the space could feel claustrophobic. And keeping the top within easy reach makes trimming less of an ordeal.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to 10 Materials for an Elegant, Harmonious Landscape
All right, so gravel is really nice for a woodland walk, but you need a more stable material for a patio area, right? Well, if you're like me and basically have 10 kids to feed, you might not have a grand budget. Pea gravel, ⅜-inch angular gravel or decomposed granite can make a nice surface to walk on. What's really important is to site the paved space thoughtfully. This patio is elegantly situated in a garden where one can imagine cocktail parties with beautiful people. I'll bring the Barbancourt!5 great gravel and stone types for the landscape
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Extrovert
Create inviting smaller spaces for intimate conversation. The extrovert’s well-designed garden should incorporate smaller vignettes so partygoers can break off from the crowd for more intimate conversations. Narrower paths leading to small seating areas with cozy furniture provide a respite during larger gatherings. A surrounding hedge or wall will create a psychological sense of freedom and security for those who venture there and can optimize usable space in a smaller garden.
