Hi Maisy, I'm sorry, this photo was from a book, Decorate by Holly Becker, so unfortunately, I don't have that information. I would suggest posting the photo to the Discussion Board and asking if anyone knows of where to find such a fence in the area you live:

You can just cut and paste the link to the picture with you question and fingers crossed, someone will be able to advise you.

Sorry I don't have more information for you.

. Asking for information regarding fabric of canopy in photo??? - Would love to know the fabric used for the canopy. It looks like it would make great sun porch curtains....light, airy, dry easily,and not likely to mildew.

I am very curious as to how this frame stays standing. I love the simplicity of it but it looks like it would come toppling down in a rainstorm!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Outdoor spaces take on a life of their own, whether the look of these rooms take you away to Morocco, The Greenbrier, Palm Springs or Key West. The authors recommend maximizing outdoor areas for use as outdoor rooms. Decorate Tip: Emulate this space, where "throw rugs layered on the concrete surface warm it up the area, making it an inviting extension of the apartment."
Amy Renea added this to Creating Nests: Cozy Outdoor Rooms
A dining nest doesn't have to be a grand affair. A simple table and chairs, a small draping of blue, and walls on two sides create a quiet, contemplative spot for morning coffee and afternoon tea.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey added this to Tented Ceilings Raise the Bar
A beautiful colored fabric in an outdoor room can make it feel worlds away from your own backyard. The right colors and textures can take your patio to Mexico or Morrocco in a flash. Plus, changing the fabric can create an entirely different look and feel.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Relationship Problems Solved by Design
Problem No. 1: Everything else takes priority over your relationship. Whether you've been married for 20 years or dating for six months, every relationship hits a patch where it gets neglected. Bills pile up, work turns stressful, kids gets sick — and romance gets pushed to the back burner. By setting up a special place in your home for you and your sweetie, you'll be encouraged to spend part of the day together — just the two of you. An outdoor setting like this provides instant romance. Plan a date at least once a week to enjoy your special spot with a bottle of wine or book of poetry, no cell phones allowed. If a cozy outdoor venue isn't in the cards, push a bench near a window with a pretty view and cover the seat with plush pillows and blankets. Anything soft will do.
Samantha Schoech added this to Rich Looks for Thrifty Outdoor Rooms
I just love this one. Layered rugs, a simple fabric canopy, and a collection of throw pillows create a cheerful, eclectic room. There is nothing here you couldn't get at a flea market or garage sale.
5. Craft your own canopy. Canopies add an exotic note to any outdoor space, and they're ideal for blocking unsavory views. Take a cue from this page in the book Decorate and make your own canopy from a length of pretty cloth and a few bamboo poles.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Ways to Design an Alluring Backyard
6. Luxe it up with layers. You may think this scene is the last one that I'd describe as luxe, but even though this outdoor dining space is modest and decorated with simple lengths of fabric, it has a true personality — creating a sense of place for those who come here. Why it works:• Draped canopy: Panels of fabric (possibly several repurposed drapes, shower curtains or sheets) were stitched together and suspended to create a casbah-like roof overhead.• Fanciful flooring: Outdoor area rugs soften the floor and add a jolt of color.• Table talk: The small café table is the center of attention here, its patterned cloth echoing the blues and reds used elsewhere.• Pillows, pillows, pillows: The ordinary bench became a chaise with some comfy cushions tossed on.
Add Textiles Time required: 30 minutes.Starting budget: Find colorful outdoor rugs (4 feet by 6 feet) at Home Infatuation for around $45. Throw pillows and outdoor rugs now come in fabrics that stand up to weather, so you can use print, color and pattern with these items as you would indoors.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Give Your Home That Lazy Summer Vibe
An outdoor pavilion is not in your cards? Create a makeshift lounge. Think of it as your summer living room. A few layered rugs, some floor pillows and a low table will do the trick.
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to Clash Course: Design Comes Outside to Play
Play with fabric: drape awnings; cover your table for special days; throw down a rug. All these elements automatically fight (in the best way) with our conventional understanding of the outdoors, and will ensure you are as comfortable outside as you are in.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Theme Gardens
Forget the lattice overhead and add exotic flair with softly draped panels that evoke the feeling of a luxurious tent. The rug underfoot adds to the ambience, as do the pillows. There's shade, but enough light filters through to keep the space from feeling too closed in and dark.Design tip: Recreating this look is fairly simple — you just need supports for the cloth and long sheets of fabric. However, be sure to attach the fabric firmly to the supports or it may blow away to land on other parts of your garden.
STEP 2: Decide on a themeYou might think that adding a theme to your preparations means adding another task to your list. In fact, it might actually make your job easier. Deciding on a theme will help you narrow down menu options, simplify the decorations and streamline the drinks list. Plus, it will pull the whole look together effortlessly and up the ante.Here are some themes to consider.Moroccan MadnessHawaiian LuauMexican FiestaBondi Beach BarbieCountry Fete‘50s DinerVintage SeasideFOR FUN: Check out more parties to throw each year
Top it off. To change the mood of your dining area, try changing the tablecloth. Why it works: This is so simple; anticipate spring with a bright tablecloth. For best effect, choose patterns in sunny yellow or bright green.
