I like it but I would think it creates liability from the occurrence of trips and falls.

As suspected, it's merely a design element. Pretty cool, I thought.

It appears to be a Malm fireplace or some kind of copy (of which there were a few when Malm's Lancer fireplace was really popular). You can find them used on kijiji from time to time or buy a new one. http://www.malmfireplaces.com

Full photo - This is very similar to what we want to do. We would have the back of an interior fireplace jutting out on the left end (looking toward the house) we have a bedroom window. Door from house to patio is middle. We estimate full size of slam to 10x20.

Not sure where to get these exact ones...I'm just the photographer not the designer. However, I found one online that is pretty close in design: https://www.amazon.com/Dusq-Citronella-Caramel-Mosquito-Ambiance/dp/B0731P6DB1/ref=sr_1_98_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1531314175&sr=8-98-spons&keywords=outdoor+tiki+torch&psc=1

It appears to be approx. 10x12x8. Can't be certain because I'm not the designer (just the photographer). I am in the process of trying to connect with her, but as of yet have not been able to.

The torches burn kerosene (Tiki oil), or Citronella oil. You can get it at most any hardware or home improvement store.

Western Timber Frame
The technical term for this structure is actually a Pergola. Pavilions have covered roofs that are usually pitched, whereas Pergolas have rafters with shade planks on top. However, you'll often find hybrid pergolas that have roofs that can open seasonally (such as a louvered roof), or have cloth or drapes attached to them to provide further shade. The beam profile is not what I would term a Chinese, or Shanghai style. I'll attach a few images of what we call an Oriental style of pergola to this answer. The attached images show a pergola with a double roof system that is both aesthetically pleasing as well as provides functional shade for the outdoor living space.

Please note: this design is trademarked by Western Timber Frame and the construction method is currently patent pending.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mike Dietrich added this to Light Your Patio, Extend Your Evening
When you think of patio lighting, do your thoughts immediately turn to tiki torches? They’re definitely festive, but they just scratch the surface of the options available.
Jess McBride added this to Add Some Tiki Style to Your Summer
Tiki TorchesBamboo tiki torches may have originated in Polynesia, but, like most items we associate with tiki style, they’ve been appropriated and reinterpreted by Western consumers. Today you’ll find tiki torches, which have retained their cachet as a favorite lighting source for backyard barbecues, in the aisles of big-box home improvement stores.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Erin Olson added this to Outdoor/landscaping
Like the edges of the pergola beams
Joshua Willis added this to Joshua's ideas
I like pergolas but maybe a little more modern
