Modern Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are not exciting, let’s face it. When you need one, you look online, visit lighting shops, etc., all to have an ‘eh’ response to the semi-suitable ones. They aren’t something that makes your heart beat faster, so it’s more of a ‘which-one-will-blend-in’ decision and ‘which-one-is-within-our-budget’, of course. Being in the position of needing to replace two of our ceiling fans, I found myself asking those two questions this past weekend. Not surprisingly, my choices were whittled down to a few from the Modern Fan Company. The fans are simple enough with modern lines and prices are around the $300 to $400 mark (the previous ~$200 fans crapped out, so decision was made to spend a bit more). Just in case you find yourself in a similar situation, here’s a few that look decent:

Blow Ceiling Fan

If you’ve been shopping for ceiling fans, you’re accustomed to the selection at your local lighting and hardware stores. So, perhaps you too exclaimed that there are, in fact, truly modern fans available (stylized or not). This one is particularly interesting with the transparent blade option and with the light above, rather than below, the blades.

With summer fast approaching (or already here, depending where you are), this particular fan is a perfect home accessory that looks good and does the important job of keeping rooms cooler.

Each blade is individually balanced for perfect performance. The oscillation function can spread a fresh breeze through large spaces. 3 speeds cover the full spectrum from silent and gentle to a windy storm. Controlled from an aluminium remote control or through the rear cone of the motor.”
