Appeal Shading

An awning that reacts to the weather before you do seems more space-age than household reality, but Appeal Shading’s Haus Awning is smarter than the average sunshade. It has sensors that extend or retract the awning depending on what the weather is doing, and offers infrared heating and built-in, remote-control LED lighting as well, so you can dine out come rain or shine. From £3500.
