We'd seen gyro fans like this at a cafe in SF and searched one out for our house in the mountains. Really nice look with the wood blades and satin nickel finish, it's not modern or rustic so fits into a lot of places. We have it mounted off the peak in a cedar-ceiling great room. It truly is the centerpiece of the room. Sure it costs more than the average fan but if you think of it as decorating the room too it's a not too expensive upgrade that makes a big difference. Oh and it works great as a fan, the remote is handy, and it's very quiet while moving a good amount of air. For parents: instant babysitter, babies especially are mesmerized!
