The Old Havana Fan by Fanimation was the solution posed by the problem of the rafters in the Venice Eco Beach Cottages. Not only can they by mounted so that their blades will not connect with an existing element (like the rafters here) but their fan's head can be angled to take advantage of variations in the directions of natural breezes and window placement.
- The Artemis Ceiling Fan. This is a beautiful flat spinning option.
- Vent Bettina Fan. For a large room with two distinct areas that need cooling. Tender Greens, a restaurant in Culver City, uses a similar style on their outdoor patio.
- Roundup: Best Modern Electric Fans. If you can't mount a ceiling fan, if you don't subscribe to the "moves air up and down" ceiling fan theory, or you just want additional cooling, this is a roundup of some great table options.
