Chicago, prepare for some heat. After a stretch of cool, breezy summer days, we're finally going to be feeling a Midwestern July. Last year was the first time since living in Chicago (that's 8 years!) that we had an a/c unit, and while we rarely turn it on, we're sure happy to have the option.
So, fans: ceiling fans help, but sometimes you just want one you can sit in front of for hours. Box fans are pretty atrocious looking; standing floor fans bulky. We think table top fans for a small apartment have always been a stylish way to cool down.
AT reader Anna sent us this link for a fan from Lightology saying, "Only question: what color?" In brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze, it goes for a breezy $33.60.
Any other great fans out there we should know about?
