Under "materials" only metal, glass and electrical parts are listed. The review I read commented that the blades were not wood but metal as the reviewer wanted. I received cheap painted wood blades. Described as having a "brushed nickel" finish these blades are simply painted silver. I am not impressed, this fan gets installed in the basement, I will continue to look for a fan with metal blades as this one intimated by listing metal, glass and electrical parts as the materials used. Very disappointed.
Aside from the sleek look, and the surprise value when demonstrating for friends, the unobtrusive design, and silent operation(!) make this a must have item. It looked difficult to install. Fortunately, there were professionals available to do so. My only issue is with the fluorescent whiteness of the light. I now have to figure out how to access the light to either add a gel or paint inside the glass to soften the color.
