This is what a traditional pergola looks like, an outdoor structure of exposed beams that you can leave as is or hang fabric and plants around for a different look.

I realize most of the modern outdoor furniture I like are really pergolas. Talk about one big piece of furniture. Absolutely no built-in so you can bring it along wherever you go.

What I really like are the agrarian pergolas that homestead farmers built around their garden and grow gourds on. Gourds because there are soo many different shapes and colours that look lovely just hanging down from the rafters. I love this guy's wrap-around pergola, you can setup a table in the centre and have tea while watching your garden grow.
