Love this design! The clean lines of the sauna structure and chair with the rugged stone. Stone looks like Realstone Charcoal Ledgestone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzzers Say: 16 Outdoor Must-Haves
A sauna. Not necessarily a strictly "outdoor" element, but I like to envision running through a snowy backyard to a sauna, as they do in Scandinavian countries.
Martine Resnick added this to 8 European-Style Patios That Invite and Charm
Modern Scandinavian chic. The Scandinavians are masters of clean and simple design. The look here has been achieved by layering varying soft shades of modern gray in different textures, such as bleached wood, simple stone and clean painted lines. The designer has also added some contrasting warmer wood tones for an unexpected twist. To achieve a modern Scandinavian look on your patio, go for uncluttered, simple furniture pieces with clean lines in black or gray wood. Choose a simple palette of one or two colors — grays or whites would work well. If this feels too sterile for you, try adding a little warm, colored wood (such as a reclining sun chair) or brightly colored (such as burnt orange or mustard yellow) seat cushions. For a touch of something natural, grow pots of simple green plants in black containers.
Lisa Frederick added this to 5 Hot Tips for Home Saunas
2. Determine if you want your sauna indoors or outdoors. Indoor saunas are more common, but external saunas are a good option if you don't have the room indoors or if you want your sauna near a pool or overlooking a view. The downside: Exposure to the elements means it may need extra insulation to stay hot.3. Know your options for materials. Cedar is the classic choice — it gives off a pleasant fragrance, resists rot, doesn't splinter easily and doesn't absorb excess heat (translation: You won't burn your bum sitting down). However, you can use other soft woods, such as hemlock and spruce. Many people choose concrete, tile or another durable substance for the sauna floor, because moisture tends to collect on a wooden floor and harbor bacteria growth.
