The pergola has seen a big surge in popularity over the past few years, as outdoor living continues to be a huge trend in home improvement. Of course, the pergola has been around for a long time (the origin probably dates back to ancient Egypt!), but it is also most often confused with other similar structures. People often confuse pergolas with gazebos, trellises and pavilions and are not always sure what a pergola is used for or what it looks like.
