gazebo design type

I want to hire someone to build us a gazebo, and I was browsing google images until I found one I liked. Unfortunately, I didn't save the image and now it's been a month and I still can't find it.

It was a rather unique design, because the base was small, and the support posts (or beams, don't even know the term) were somehow tilted (2 or 3 combined in a crafty way) and made the roof bigger, hanging over a larger area, making a much larger shade than a regular one. Unfortunately I don't know the technical terms for this kind of design so that I can search the net, and I was wondering if any of you know what I mean and can help me with the keywords. I only managed to find something with non-straight pillars, not exactly what I wanted, but the idea is similar:

Frustum or inverted frustum?
