Ron Rezek

Ron Rezek designed the world's first contemporary-styled ceiling fan, the Stratos, in 1986. But his list of accomplishments in the design world is long and varied, from lifeguard equipment to contemporary lighting. In 1997, Ron started The Modern Fan Co. in Ashland, Oregon, which produces and sells only contemporary ceiling fans.

His ceiling fans have been widely used in hotels, restaurants, retail and institutional applications, and all types of residential projects.

Ron Rezek's Philosophy:
"I don't think contemporary means a stark white room. I think it means a tasteful alignment of important elements. There are some designers who copy the Modernists who have come before. But I think 'contemporary' is the pursuit of the new." "People assume that all contemporary fixtures are more functional than traditional ones. That is because contemporary fixtures are easier to clean and they seem to be more utilitarian based on their appearance. And because of their simplicity and lack of ornamentation, they also have an alliance with the industrial look. But all of this doesn't necessarily translate into function. The Modern Fan Co.'s fans are designed to be functional and energy efficient. This is part of being contemporary and pushing the edge. Energy efficiency is the wave of the future."

Great ceiling fan at a good price

You can't go wrong with Modern Fan Co. A good selection of fans, good price. The 4-speed control switch has an inset toggle that's a bit on the ugly side. Otherwise. highly recommended.

Very disappointed

I am very disappointed with the Plum fan. It looked beautiful online. The blades are wood painted silver and the small size looks diminuitive in the room. I should of stuck with the classic Ball fan.

Slick and efficient

I called to place the order and got confirmation that the item was in stock. The ceiling fan is slick and discrete with the short arm (we have low ceilings). It moves the air very nicely with the 52 blades. The 75W halogen provides ambient light for a 14 X 15 bedroom but we'd need additional light to read in bed. Also it is very quiet.

It is attractive and functional

The speed setting is not good and both settings make the fan run fast. There is no slow setting

Great Prosuct -- Excellent Service!

We are just completing a total remodeling of our kitchen and found the perfect ceiling fan on the YLighting Web Site. The 42 inch Plum Fan is perfect for small kitchens. My contractor was particularly impressed by the precision parts that made it easy to assemble and install, and enable it to live up to its lifetime warranty. Best of all was the expeditious service of YLighting. The fan arrived in just three days; right on schedule for its installation. Frrom now on we'll check the YLighting site before going any farther on the Web for the broad range of products they offer.

Attractive, not showy, has style and performs well

Thank goodness there are some fans that are designed nicely and not imitations of the thirties.The Plum fan is sleek but not intrusive. I just don't understand how it got it's name. It's really a peach!

This fan looks so cool, and it really works well too!

We love the clean lines, the simple light fixture, the amount of air it moves. In short, we highly recommend this fan to everyone who loves modern design.

Form and Function

I took a chance and ordered 8 of these fans before there were very many reviews, 4 aluminum and 4 white. They have now been installed in my newly remodeled mid-century modern home and I love them. They look cool and they move air! The blades are not real aluminum, like some reviews have said they are a painted plywood type material, but they still look great and I am very happy with them.

Nice looking...seems small

The fan seems to work well and is very nice looking. Although I chose the larger size fan, it seems small in the space compared to the same size fan I had in that space before. It may be because it has 3 blades.

I find the light to be a little too bright, and will search to see if I can get a lower wattage halogen bulb.

Fabulous look at a Fair Price

Love the look of the fan, shipped right away and when the client found that we had to go to a remote control it wasn't a problem. We are awaiting the arrival of the remote and should arrive tomorrow.

We Love our Plum Ceiling Fan

We needed to replace a rather large ceiling fan with a light. After looking at a ton of different fan designs, some with lights and some without, we decided that the only way we could find a fan that was not intrusive, we would have to forgo a light.
Then we found the Plum Ceiling fan. It's sleek design meets all of our needs. It is absolutely silent, has a minimal footprint, even with 52 inch blades and a minimalist, yet powerful light that works on a dimmer.
Rarely have we been as satisfied with a purchase.

Clean, Simple, and Quiet what a fan should be.

Going with the 42" blade made all the difference in proportion and scale for the particular location in our new mudroom. Assembly / installation was very simple, and quick. And the operation is smooth and quite. Very surprised on how the well the smaller sized blades preform. Great product design all around.

Clean lines and a lamp that provides great light

The Plum looks good and gives the light that the room needs. The setup was straightforward and did not take very long. This fan with its light kit is attractive without calling too much attention to itself and quietly provides good air circulation. The switch mounted fan and light controls are good and easy to use.

This is a great-looking fan, but I have some reservations about its mechanics.

I have always admired the design of the Modern Fan Company fans. Most ceiling fans are so clunky, big, ill-proportioned, and just—usually—ugly. After many years of settling for cheaper, uglier ceiling fans, I bought the Plum by MFC. It is a beautiful fan. It looks great just silently sitting, not even in motion. Installation was simple and straight-forward, a standard installation. I am using the remote option since I live in a very old house with old, odd wiring. While I would like the blades to be a bit longer (I have the 52" version), the fan moves a decent amount of air. My one reservation about the fan is a disconcerting non-periodic clicking noise that developed on the higher speeds just a few days after installation (it has been working only about a week). I have emailed MFC and am hoping they have an easy explanation. It sounds like something is unbalanced, which I hope is not true for a new fan.

By:Eric Z. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)

The electrician told me that the fan was a great selection and the installation was easy. It looks great in my kitchen and gives me much better air circulation than my previous fan. Totally happy. When I update my other rooms, I would pick the plum ceiling fan both for performance and price. Thank you.,

Easy on the eyes

Modern and cool looking. Just large enough to accommodate a smallish room but quiet and breezy when sitting near it.

beautiful modern yet soft fan.

This is a beautiful fan that functions nicely. It is modern and simple, but the brushed chrome and curved edges make it soft while keeping it very simple and clean. I could see it looking good in a number of different types of decors. It is not absolutely silent, but it is relatively quiet. The electrician who installed it got his own wall unit for it as opposed to using the one that came with it.

Modern, Attractive, Functional

We bought these for our bedrooms, and are really happy with them. They are simple and modern, with clean lines. The blades may be plastic, but you would never know it by looking at them. The three speeds are distinct, and do the job. I would recommend this fan.

Perfect; modern, excellent air circulation; minimal foot print.

This is my third Modern Fan Company fan, and I love it. It really helps cool down my second floor bedroom with west facing exposure. My upstairs ceiling is only 8 feet high, so I needed a fan that would not overpower the room. It was easy to install. and Modern Fan representatives were helpful in my selecting this fan.

We liked this fan so much, we got a second one for another room. They're powerful, quiet, and they look fantastic. We get unsolicited compliments on them from guests all the time. Both the remote and the wall switch work great.

wonderful beautiful fan

We're doing a house with a light 1960s theme and this fan works wonderfully. Not to mention that it is an excellent fan as well. We couldn't be more pleased with it.

Perfect finishing touch

In the last stages of our 50's ranch house remodel, we needed a ceiling fan for our peaked roof living room. It's a small house, and we needed the perfect fit, with the perfect styling, and an affordable price. After junking the huge 80s fan that the previous owners had installed, we spent a week looking at every option. Y Lighting had the most comprehensive selection at the best prices. The Plum Ceiling Fan ended up being the PERFECT fan for this space. Modern but classic, is is a beautiful detail in our home.

Thank you!

The plum fan is simple, elegant and perfect for a contemporary home.

We love it! Considering how light weight it is and that it has only 3 blades, it really puts out a nice breeze. And no wobbling!

I love the clean contemporary design of the Plum Ceiling Fan.

I love the contemporary design of the Plum Ceiling fan. I purchased the white model, which displays nice and subtle in my living room. It is quiet, sleek, and slender, practically going unnoticeable (which is what I prefer). I am very satisfied with this purchase.

A beautiful and functional modern fan

I love this fan. Not only does it look cool, but it keeps my bedroom cool. I was worried that the attached light wouldn't be bright enough, but it provides so much light. I actually wish that the light could be used with a dimmer because sometimes it is too bright. Overall, a clean, simple modern fan.

I have two Modern ceiling fans ( one the Plum model ) in my house in Portland. I recently purchased a house in Asheville, NC and have started renovating. I have been so pleased with the fans in Portland that I ordered two ( Plum BA ) for the
Asheville house and plan to order an additional two in the next couple of weeks.

Great look in mid-century home

We had our electrician install our plum fan so can not comment on how easy it was but it sure looks great. Compared to our old fan, it has a sleek modern look that compliments the mid-century furnishings/architecture.

Great style, cool fan

I liked the shape of this fan. The finish looks great and with the additional remote it really works great. Only minus would be that even with a certified wall switch (not a Modern Company one) the fans hums a little. Once replaced with the brand remote the humming nearly disappear but I had more silent fans before.

Overall I am happy and recommend this product

Modern, beautiful and functional!

I bought this fan for my bedroom. I've had it for about two months and I love everything about it! I love the design and how quiet it runs. The remote and wall control work well and the light kit I purchased along with it gives off enough light. It has a blade reverse switch, which will come in handy during the winter months.

I love this fan

This Plum fan replaced an existing fan I had and I can't believe how much better this one is . It is quiet and yet gives u a lot of air flow. It's modern design is really nice too. I ordered the white and it is everything I thought it would look like. I want to order another in the silver metal for a different room.

Customer Questions:

Q: Is the remote wiring/receiver built into the fan, or does it require that a secondary unit be stuffed into the ceiling mount box?

A: The remote control receiver for Modern Fan Ceiling fans is placed in the ceiling support bracket of the fan, which is then covered by the canopy — it does not go in the actual junction box, so the receiver is below the ceiling.

Q: Can multiple fans be operated from one remote control?

A: For the Modern Fans- as long the fans are fan only and do not include light kits, multiple fans can be operated from one remote. Additional receivers will need to be ordered for each additional fan.
