What's your take on industrial fans? Are you a fan? (Get it? Are you a fan?? Okay, maybe not.)
We're at the point where we need to choose one for our bedroom. Ceiling fans are often frowned upon in some interior design circles. And while I must admit some fans are pretty hideous, in our case, they're a must. They just make sense. They circulate the air--cool in summer and warm in winter and they're practical. But choosing the right one can be tricky. A few requirements for us are: one that doesn't have a light(s) in it, and preferably something more modern than '80s looking. i.e. we don't want something like this.
But rather like this.
This industrial fan is from Amazon and is only $63.12. Pretty good deal if ya ask me. But I just can't get the image of a rusted out metal fan with wobbly blades and a funky clanking sound hanging from one measly screw in some broke-down warehouse out of my head. I'm sure it doesn't do that, but that's what I think of when I see it. Saying that, I do like the look of it though: cool, sleek, and modern.
Or do we want something more warmish? (Just look at the fan--don't be partial because of the loving, smiley family time going on around.)
Part of me wants to take a shot with the industrial, but the other part is scared. Shoot, that's what design is all about, right? Taking chances. Whatcha think? Am I off my rocker if I want the modern one?
