The CFL light fixture was indeed bright enough to light up my whole living room. The light fixture was very elegant designed and fan was powerful. Wish the blades were made of light metal instead of wood.
Ylighting customer service was great

Well, it look great, fan works silently, and brightness is good enough for small room.
However there is major design flaw that you need to consider. The glass cover on bottom has to be installed at the very last step, even after you hang the fixture to the ceiling. It is extremely hard to put this cover to the main body, because just three short bolts are holding that up.
'Short' meaning really that it is too short to get all three balance.
I can't image how I am gonna replace the light bulbs in this.

We ordered this for a client who is happy with the product, and we as a company are happy with the ship, lead time, and the customer service! Thanks!

Beautiful fan. Very unique. My wife and I looked in all the local home improvement stores for a fan that fit our taste. We found this fan at a local lighting store which ... was twice the price we paid from ylighting.com. They delivered it very fast with no problems at all. The fan is very quiet, and looks great since the light fixture hides the motor. The only issue we had was the glass on the light fixture is very hard to attach. I would definitely recommend Modern Fan Company Fans and Ylighting.com.

I looked everywhere for the most simple, clean, four blade white fan possible and this is the closest I have come. (Why are thin straight blades so hard to find?) I would love it if there was a version without a light, but this globe light is relatively unobtrusive and produces a pleasant light. We put this fan in the playroom and since the blades are made from a relatively flexible material and seem to have a lot of give, I am less afraid of what might happen if a stray toy gets stuck up there, than I would be if the blades were solid wood. This is a benefit that I hadn't considered before purchasing, but am now grateful for.

The pictures make this fan look simple and elegant - but in actuality it looks kind of chintzy. The 42 in blades are in odd proportion to the globe and the sharp corners of the blades are too stiff in relation to the bulbous globe. The globe itself is fine when unlit - but when illuminated you can see blotchy grey toned markings and imperfections in the glass. Since I ordered it on line and had it installed it can't be returned. I feel really ripped off.

This is one stunning looking fan, however, it is large. The globe is much larger than expected.

If you need a light and fan, this is a good combination. I really like the shape of the glass. I've also used the Lapa, and if you don't need a light, I prefer it.

make a statement, is very quiet and beautiful

Dear YLighting - thank you once again for your kind and knowledgeable advice and assistance in choosing a ceiling fan/light combo appropriate to our needs. The Cloud Fan arrived a few weeks ago in perfect condition. Our electrician came by yesterday to help us install it. The fan looks beautiful and works amazingly well. It fits perfectly in our loft space and is extremely quiet - even on full speed. I was very impressed by the quality of the fan, the glass shade and the component parts - very nice stuff,
carefully packaged and clearly laid out. A 'breeze' to install and not a hint
of wobble! Thanks again, Christine

The fan is quiet, fast, and has a bright light! I love the remote option, no more pull cords for me. I like it so much I'm going to replace another fan in the living room.

We spent a long time looking for fans for our new-to-us, 100-year-old house. We like modern design, but wanted something that works with the older architecture - not an easy design achievement.
In addition to the great design, we like that the fan motor is quiet and there's no rattling due to the fan's motion. As a bonus, we're happy to purchase lighting designed by a small company in Oregon.
Overall, the form and function are so right, we bought another for another room!

After looking all over for a clean design that would work with 100-year-old architecture and a modern sensibility, we came to YLighting and the Modern Fan Co.
The design is simple and works well. The fan motor is quiet, and there's no rattling from the blade movement. Plus, the quick shipping from YDesign was fab.
Overall, we're so pleased with the fan that we just bought a second one!

I have always loved Modern Fans, but have avoided those models with lighting features until now. The Cloud is great looking and the light feature is attractive as well as functional. In white, it disappears against the ceiling.

I recently ordered and installed the Modern Fan Co. Cloud in a bedroom in our brownstone. Because it was a small room, I ordered the shorter blades and got the CFL lighting option. The fan is powerful and quiet. And the CFL light both lights up quickly enough and has a warm enough coloring to be nice for living areas. And the appearance is stylish. All in all, very happy.

I am a big fan of the Modern Fan Company products but I am exchanging this one for another one (TBD). The light fixture on this fan is HUMONGOUS. It would suit a VERY high ceiling in a large room, I suppose, but not for my master bedroom. Make sure you measure first.
By:J. H. , Homeowner (nyc)
The cloud fan is aptly named. It seems to float above the room, while the fan blades quietly operate over it. Aesthetically awesome!
We had a problem because we ordered & installed 2 fans & the receivers were interacting. A very knowledgeable Jessica promptly answered your customer service number & resolved our problem in minutes.
Since then, we have enjoyed the cloud fan during one of the hottest summers we have experienced. We have no air conditioning in our home other than the very cool cloud fan! Congratulations on an incredible product!

This is the best fan it is sleek and modern but warm. This fan is wobble free. the design is amazing. I have nothing bad to say about it. I bought 2 for the bedrooms and it looks great, got the shorter 42 inch blades at first I wasn't sure but the length is just right. Couldn't ask for a better fan.
By:City D. , Homeowner (Charlotte, NC USA)
I love my new fan it is so nice to look at and it is such a warm modern look. It was a really buy. I highly recommend this fan. the blades are squared off which makes it look so much better than most other fans and the larger cloud light kit makes it feel cozy.

The fan came in great condition and looks very modern and sleek

This is a perfect modern yet warm looking fan. Love the uniquely shaped amd sized "orb" light. Would recommend to anyone.
By:Sara , Homeowner (Brooklyn)
We are very pleased with the Cloud ceiling fan. It arrived promptly and was well packed. It is so much more graceful than most ceiling fans, whether traditional or contemporary. Had some issues with the remote control, and was referred to the Modern Fan Company, who were very responsive and helpful. Love it!
