Any chance you have a photo to share of the canopy shades utilizing cables and hooks?

Pete at Apple Awnings does beautiful cable and fabric canopies. I highly recommend him as a source.

Metal frame - Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like a 4x4 square with radius edge. Thanks!

Incredible! Was the awning designed for the canopy or are they attached separately?

Where can I find more information on this kind of structure? - I am in Phoenix, Az and have never seen anything quite like this here. Where can I learn more? Thanks. (mpschalliol@

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Retractable options let you choose when you want shade or sun. When it’s the former, this playful design folds out strips of yellow fabric to protect you from the rays.
This simple yellow sunshade blends beautifully with the surounding foliage. Green and yellow-green sit next to yellow on the color wheel, which means foliage will tend to blend in with most yellows.
