Take a Look at These Beautiful Ceiling FansFriday 8th August 2014 11:09am
Thinking this week about all the great products we have at Lighting Illusions, I realised it’s been a while since we last posted about ceiling fans. And yet, keeping our homes comfortably cool in summer is a big priority for most Australians; our ceiling fans are carefully chosen from the best brands in the world for their innovation, style and durability.
If you live in a traditional-style home, it’s sometimes tricky to find electronic devices that don’t look out of place, but ceiling fans have been in use for many decades, so it’s not difficult to find one that will fit in. Our range of traditional fans will make you want to install one in every room. For a sitting room, my first choice would be the Majestic Coolah; its Merchant Ivory looks are belied by the fact that it’s an Australian design, built to meet the needs of the Australian climate. For a stunning look in a dining room, the Hunter 1886 Series would look fantastic over a dark polished table, with voile curtains billowing gently in its breeze. With the flair of Art Nouveau, its hand-cast vintage style fan actually replicates the design of one of Hunter’s earliest ceiling fans.
Keeping it Current
In modern-style homes, you might want something a bit more streamlined to keep you cool, and you can find plenty to choose from in this range. If you like a touch of Mediterranean chic, you can’t go wrong with the Vento Sole Retractable Bladed Ceiling Fan with Light. Available in four different colours, including a vibrant yellow, its blades spin around a central lamp like rays of sunlight. This would look great in a modern kitchen/diner with sleek units and bright tableware. If you’re a fan of industrially influenced urban design, look no further than the Hunter Industrie II 3 Blade. Available in chalk white, brushed chrome and graphite, this fan is sleek and minimalist, with an impressive blade span to keep you cool in maximum style.
Shooting the Breeze
Many of my clients have a pergola or gazebo in their gardens for some welcome shade in the depths of summer. I always advise them to install one of our outdoor ceiling fans so that they can relax in comfort on hot, still nights. With its classic cabana style and wood-look blades, the Hunter Maribel Indoor-Outdoor Ceiling Fan can stand up to anything nature cares to fling its way. For coastal dwellers, my all-time favourite is the Martec Series 2 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Ceiling Fan with Light. Its powerful motor and marine grade materials make it perfect for the special conditions you’ll find when you live by the ocean. We have plenty of ceiling fans to choose from, and the models with integrated lights make great alternatives to single-purpose light fixtures.
