One home appliance that doesn't get a whole lot of press is the ceiling fan. Before finding Matthews Fan Company, I had never seen any I liked, so I wasn't exactly crying out for more information. But a day spent in the D&D building here in New York caused that all to change.
Near the elevator banks on a floor of the famous home to many designer showrooms, a series of double-headed shiny silver ceiling fans swirled above my head in the middle of winter. The setup was outrageous and completely unnecessary, but so stunning to look at that I forgave the eccentricity.
Now I'm not sure which brand of ceiling fan I came across that day, but I do know that it inspired me to look a little deeper into the market. The pieces by Matthews Fan Company bring back that feeling of elegant utility that I've come to admire in recent weeks. Check out the rest of their offerings here.
