Can you let us know the maker of the canopy. I'd be interested in size potential and durability in Chicago winters.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bring it up a notch. Instead of the cheapy-cheapy foldy chairs most people schlepp out with tents, consider something a little more substantial, like a lightweight outdoor club chair.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
Investing in a sturdy canopy or outdoor tent could be worth your while if you live in a climate where you can entertain outside most of the year. This setup seems particularly good for transitioning from a warm day to a cooler night — just close a few flaps and stock the fire and you'll be toasty in no time.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Warm Up Your Patio
Add a rooftop. Whether you choose a permanent, year-round construction or a seasonal canopy, a roof over the patio will help to contain heat in the cooler months. If possible, wire it with lighting to prepare it for fall’s earlier setting sun.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Tented Ceilings Raise the Bar
A patio is wonderful, sure, but adding a cover creates an entirely new realm of décor options. While even outdoor fabrics and rugs don't hold up to rain, wind and sun over time, a tent adds protection and options. An outdoor space is also a great place to take chances with vibrant colors and furniture that you wouldn't necessarily want to commit to indoors.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Outdoor Rugs Have Style Covered
5. Add comfort by going big. If you have the space, consider using a large-scale rug to make your outdoor area feel more comfortable. This covered patio space feels more like an indoor living area due to the scale and warmth added by the rug.

Here is another more official tent that turns this patio into a beautiful mix of outdoors and in. Note how the curtains even release to enclose the room as desired. The rug below helps define the space's perimeters without limiting it.
