I have been looking for a modern, low profile or flush mount ceiling fan as I have low (standard 8 foot) ceilings and all my current fans are flush mount. it's been impossible to find a flush mount ceiling fan under $300 that has clean, modern lines so I decided to give this a try since the downrod is only 6 inches.. I was a little nervous this might hang down to far, but it's perfect. I can touch the blades, but I have plenty of walking clearance under the fan. I bought two of these fans and liked them enough to buy two more so now all my ceiling fans match and I don't have any more of those dowdy 1980s style fans with the gold trim and ugly light sconces. The price is great and they look wonderful with all my dark wood and clean lined furniture. The remote control is a great bonus. It has an on/off switch for the light and low, med, high for the fan. The fan does not have a pull chain so you'll have to keep your remote handy (mine is attached to a light switch which will turn on the light for me). It puts out a nice amount of air in my medium sized bedroom. The light is on the soft side due to how opaque the glass shade is and because you can only use two 40 watt bulbs. But I don't want bright glaring light at night and prefer the softer light it casts so it works for me.

Liked the looks of this fan. It would be optimal for flush-mount application. Unfortunately, the rod was not a standard size and we wanted it for a cathedral ceiling.

The fan looks very nice and blows air and cools a good sized room. You'll need to buy a 9volt battery which I thought would have been included. The install went well, my installer does a lot of fans so maybe it was easier for him than most. I love the modern, rich look of the fan. I am very pleased!
I'm terrified of electricity but decided to tackle this anyway by myself. The instructions were very confusing to me since they also include instructions for other fan models. Just make sure you are looking at the right model number. The only thing that was really a pain is that they tell you to put the blades on after the fan is mounted and wired on the ceiling. You really need two people to do this because you have to remove a plate on the fan and spin the motor until the screwholes are visible. This requires holding a flashlight straight up to see inside and at the same time get the screw on the screwdriver and tighten it. I managed by holding the flashlight in my mouth and i'm sure I looked ridiculous. If I did it again, I would attach the blades before and deal with the awkwardness of mounting the fan with the blades sticking out.

The first thing that I would like to say is that this product looks great!! The only reason I am giving it 3 stars is because you really need to have someone who knows what they are doing put it together. It comes in atleast 15 peices. BUT if you have someone who can put it together, you will love this :) I surely do!
Moves a lot of air, looks really nice. The color is just like the picture.

The picture makes the blades look much longer/bigger, but overall, the fan is nice, and it looks great installed.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a nice fan.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I don't remember the description saying it had a remote, so that was a bonus.
This fan is very simple appearing, yet nice and elegant, bronze color goes very well with any wood floor, i have a dark brown wood in my floor so I used the darker wood side (its reversible) and it matches very well. The handle is fairly short so if you want lower fan you may want something else, lights are good with two sockets for cfl (not candelabra) bulbs, nice bright light for a medium size room. The best thing is the wind is quite good even at medium, at high you can use it in summer to save on AC bill. 3 wooden blades only so easy to clean and maintain. Noise is mild and very tolerable compared to other fans I've used in this price range. All in all, I recommend this fan if you are looking for something that's reasonably priced, and if you have wood floor to match. If you are looking for something modern or fancy appearing look at something else.
Our cookie cutter home had these awful ugly boring old-school ceiling fans with the dated bell shaped glass light shades. I LOVE the updated sleek design of this fan, especially for the price! I was changing out several other boring light fixtures throughout our home and this was merely an afterthought, might as well since an electrician was coming over anyway. I am so glad I bought this fan!!! It makes me smile everytime I look up!
Looks exactly as we saw it in the picture. Actually a very nice looking fan. Unfortunately, it arrived missing a piece that isn't essential but more cosmetic, so we installed it without. Now the piece is here and my husband doesn't want to take it apart. With that being said, it is very quiet and we have never used it above the 1st setting. The light is adequate if you have other lamps, which we do. One thing you have to adjust to, if the light has been turned off at the switch the remote doesn't work. I have the remote at my nightstand and sometimes want to turn it on in the middle of the night, so I need to make sure the switch is on and I've turned the light off with the remote. Then the remote will work for all
I was looking for a ceiling fan that was chic and simple to go with our mid-century modern home. Good luck with that at the "Big Box Stores"! Nothing came close, in either design or price," until I found this one on Overstock.com. My electrician installed it because it required replacing an ancient fixture that needed retiring, etc., but if you're just replacing one fan for another or don't have a tricky electrical situation, it would be a "breeze" to put up. It has replaced 2 box fans and one table fan we had going in our bedroom on the steamiest nights this summer. It comes with an easy-to-use remote, so you don't even have to get out of bed to adjust the speed, 3 different speeds, an unobtrusive light also operated by remote, and it is SO quiet that I'm "blown away" by its efficiency. It's "FAN-tactic"!
You will love this fan...once you have it installed. It's a bit complicated and you absolutely need someone who is good at home repair or construction or an electrician. The remote is fantastic, but again read the instructions carefully. And like other reviewers have said, it's a tight cramped space where you have to put all the wires and the remote box up, but once you get it all in there the lamp cover does cover it all. Then there's installing the blades. Use a magnetic screwdriver so you don't lose a screw in the fixture itself. This happened to us. But if you are patient, read the instructions and take a break every few minutes instead of throwing the fan against the wall...well you will have a lovely gorgeous fan installed.
This is exactly what I had wanted to replace the ugly old brass fan that came with the house. With 3 more in each bedroom I am thinking about exchanging them out over time. The fan is beautiful and matches all of our new fixtures and works even better than the old 5 blade fan.
We love this fan. It's sleek and stylish. Gets the job done and adds some flair to our son's room. One thing I noticed is there is a short delay before the light turns on after you've flipped the switch. But that could be because the switch is operating it instead of the remote.
My fan was delivered on time and in perfect condition; it was very well packaged. We opted to install this ourselves rather than hire someone to do the job. The instructions were fairly easy to follow and (aside from not having a 9 volt battery on hand in the new house) installation went relatively quickly. The remote control adds a lot more wiring to the installation and the dome cover that contains the wires barely fit over all of them. We installed this in a small sized bedroom that has good natural morning light; I would not suggest this for a large room due to the very soft lighting it provides. The fan function is incredible and the speeds have just enough variation between them; I prefer the 3 blade aesthetic and still feel that I get ample wind power. Would certainly recommend this style and remote control format to others!
