The OTTO fan is a great addition to any room in the house. It tackles all of the things you'd like a fan to do—circulate air and keep quiet, namely—plus adds in a gorgeous mid-century aesthetic. Looks don't come cheap, y'all. OTTO will run you $200 from 2modern.com.
Not into the wood look? Then you'll think this Black + Blum Venti Fan is hot. Er—cool. Taking style cues from aviation, this $549 fan can be floor-standing or wall-mounted. Grab one here at MyPopcornMachine.com.
If you're just looking for something inexpensive to get you through until it's heater season? This plastic fan isn't sleek, but it does a great job at moving the cool fall air all around the room. At only $20.49 (from Amazon.com), it's a worthwhile purchase that you can hide away when company comes.
Want something you can leave out all the time? Something so beautiful that, once the weather cools off and it's no longer needed, it almost becomes an art piece? You need the Chromed Clay Furniture Floor Fan by Maarten Baas. Of course, it's priced "upon request." If you have to ask, you can't afford it. (Hint: It's $22,000)
