I had seen this fan hanging up in a friend's house and thought it was so different and attractive. The light is larger than I had thought, so it is not as sleek as I was hoping but it's still appealing. I have it in my living room and everyone remarks about it looking so nice. I like watching the blades going around in a swirling motion. As described, the air motion that comes from this fan is not directly underneath the fan and is not as powerful as some of the standard ceiling fans (even on high), but since I will have a coffee table underneath the fan, and because the air conditioner will be on on really hot days, this fan will be perfect. If you like different and modern, this is a great fan.
