Retro-inspired Fans

Retro-inspired Fans

As big proponents of the old fashioned (or modern) fan, and since we're not planning on turning on our gigantic (inherited) window a/c unit this summer unless absolutely necessary, we were happy to see the roundup of cool-looking and retro-inspired fans in the recent issue of Time Out. While we don't love our contacts drying out or shouting over the noise of a true oldie, we do love the looks of charming fans, the whirring lull at night, and no-chill overkill that we often associate with a/c. Details below:

1 Minka Aire from Lightology (in brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze); $42

2 Vornado Air Circulator; $130

3 Fanimation's Fargo Fan from Lumens (spins 360 degrees); $200

4 Deco Breeze Oscillating Fan from Target (available in a variety of colors); $50
