It might be a late afternoon rain shower or searing mid-day sun. Whatever it is, covering the outdoor dining room is a way to make it into a space that can be used most of the year.
In this space, the drapery adds an extra layer of protection while softening the hard lines of the structure. The chandelier provides nice light for late evening parties.
