With not knowing much about Modern Fan Co -I was skeptical of the Stella fan at first. But i decided to order it an give it a try - to my surprise it was exceptionally nice. The build quality was top notch and the instructions actually made sense. It looks great and many have commented on how it is a unique fan. Needless to say i am happy with my purchase. The only negative thing is that the light is more for looks than actually lighting a room - but i don't mind because this was not intended to be my main light in the room...

The design of this fan is GREAT! It's streamlined, unique and incorporates a light with a fan in a way that avoids any 'strobe' effect. Our only issue was that the maple appears to have been coated with a finish that left it lifeless. We are going back to the Altus aluminum instead. Too bad.

Beautiful fan looks great in the main living room in our 40's bungalow with our mid century furniture. It is really a special fan. A bit pricey for a fan, but if you shop around, you won't find this one cheaper anywhere else. No shipping charge was nice too!

First of all, Ylighting is one of the best customer service I have ever experienced.
The fan is beautiful!!! I was worried first to buy a fan online but when it arrived it was just like the pictures.
I would buy other products from Ylighting again.

The Stella Ceiling fan is a bit more transitional than most of the products from this company. It was used in a contemporary setting where the introduction of wood tones was needed, but not in a traditional sense. This product fit the bill perfectly. It actually has the duel benefit of being an element to be highlighted as well as the functionality of a ceiling fan.

This fan is gorgeous -- the styling, the wood quality and color. It's such a cool look and a very nice quality. Definitely one of a kind!

Just installing this fan now, it looks great. I have two other Modern Fans from YLighting and they are great pieces. YLighting service is great too.

Design element and structural quality very big, i recommend it to anyone willing to spend for quality

We selected this fan as part of our extensive remodel and LOVE IT! While it may have a contemporary look, our home is strictly traditional and goes perfect with our entire decor. We selected the Mahogany finish and it is absolutely beautiful! It is REAL WOOD, not veneer! Fan blades are light weight and didn't need to be balanced. We added option#3, the handheld remote control. It is an RF remote system(NOT Infra-red, line-of-sight) so it works two rooms away. Remote is packaged with an RF sensor installs in the ceiling base. The light bulb is very small but very powerful!

I love this ceiling fan! the wood rings give it a retro look i love. It works more as an accent light rather than lighting up a whole room because the rings direct the light downward. It would be nice if it came with a dimmer option. The medium speed is quite fast; it really cools off the room.

Great design and well engineered fan. Everyone that sees it loves the warmth of the wood and the unique design. I have modern decor but the fan would also go with a traditional home. No wobble,completely quiet runs well at all speeds

This is a beautiful fan that functions very well. The "beehive" section is larger than it looks online, which makes it more of a statement piece rather than a fan that just blends in unnoticed. The light works nicely and is brighter than I thought it would be given other reviews. Very happy with it overall. Looks great with our simple room with lots of wood trim. Modern yet warm design.

We've been looking for a fan to make a statement and complement the floors in the living room and loft. The Stella maple fan is a perfect complement to the light oak floors and trim. It hangs down 3 feet from a sloped roof in the living room about 7 ft from the loft centered between 4 recessed lights. With three speeds and a light, the remote works perfectly to provide cooling and ambient light.

The Stella ceiling fan is an absolutely beautiful and functional ceiling fan. It melds well in a transitional environment. It is mounted on a cathedral ceiling abode a 9ft first floor and next to a loft. Withe the 36" extender and sloped adapter, installation was easy and it has become a conversation piece.

We bought a floor lamp and it looks excellent.

Researched the heck out of hundreds of fans and settled on this one. The maple finish softens a grey/steel bedroom perfectly. Everyone asks about it & man, does this thing move air, and quietly. No wobble, no noise, looks great. Trying to decide if I can get away with the same fan in 2 other rooms...

I paid an electrician to install it, but he did not complain about any difficulties. The light is bright, and the fan is beautiful. It is quiet and well-balanced. We chose the darker wood, which is not a deep ebony color, but is not a reddish cherry color either--it is in between a cherry color and a very dark ebony or mahogany color.

I'm thrilled with the "Stella" Fan Light. Most fans are of traditional design or too contemporary, this one sits towards the modern end but with a softer look. I ordered the mahogany and bronze and the light fixture within stands out just enough. For higher ceilings a extension bar is a must as it comes with just 12". I also ordered a dual light/fan remote. I will be ordering two more for two different areas in the house.

This fan looks like it was custom made for our house! I also purchased the Altus fan which is installed close to the Stella. They blend well, I needed two fans and didn't want the other (Altus) to take away from the Stella. I've purchased 3 fans from ylighting - very, very happy with all of them!
By:Sarah , Homeowner (Massachusetts)
Lovely fan--quiet and moves a lot of air! Was not difficult to install.
Arrived in good shape, with the exception of the (pricey) GU lightbulb, which was smashed to a million dangerous bits. Strange, because the lightbulb was nested in the glass light fixture, which was unharmed. Makes me think the bulb was already smashed when someone put it inside the glass fixture.

Well built smaller 42" & 52" blades available. The halogen bulb dims by holding your finger on the light button until the desired amount of light is achieved. The maple color is more golden oak to me.
By:Nathan B. , Homeowner (Illinois)
The fan is a piece of art. We bought the fan with the mahogany finish and halogen light. You need the halogen lighting for dimming. The fan was packaged securely. The assembly was fairly intuitive. I installed the fan myself with no difficulty. It has design flair at a price that approachable. If you are looking for a well designed, whisper quiet fan, this is the one. The Stella is crafted with attention to detail.YLighting is alway great to work with.

I love the Stella fan!! It was easy to install, looks great and is very quiet. The fan completely changed the look of the room, adds an interesting focal point without being overwhelming. I am so happy with my purchase.

Ordering / Shipping process went smoothly.
Fan looks and works great.
By:Doug H. , Homeowner (Chicago, IL )
We just moved into a new home and needed a little air movement in the bedroom in the summer months when the windows are closed. We wanted something warm and not too industrial but also modern. The stella fan was just the ticket. Easy to install and totally quiet while the fan is on, we are very happy. On another note, we ordered the smaller blades by accident. Since we had already opened and installed the unit we couldn't exchange the blades but Ylighting has been very helpful about identifying the part number so we can purchase the correct blades at an affordable price.

We are remodeling a mid-century modern home and I think this fan fits really nicely with the look we are going for. Love the design. We haven't yet installed, but I did look it over and it appears to be high quality. Can't wait to use it!
By:Kelley , Homeowner (Palm Desert, CA)
Great looking fan. Will be beautiful on our screened in porch.
By:Anonymous , Homeowner
First, the instructions are great! They are well written step-by-step with pictures. I installed this fan solo in a leisurely 45 minutes. It comes with a separate trouble shooting guide that has a toll-free number prominently featured in several places. I did have to call the number as I had a question about the controller, and got a real person!!!! pretty much right away. Not only that, but they knew exactly the answer to my question and walked me through it with no problem. wow.
The fan itself is nice looking, silent and stable. When the light is on high, it throws a good amount of light. The dimmer has several levels, and looks great at night on low. There are 3 speed settings (controller #4) for the fan blades. My only quibble is that I wish the lowest setting was a little slower.

This fan was certainly worth the wait !!!
I live in a dark sky community and wanted a fan with
light kit so that I could read in the dark of night, out on
I had my electrician hang it on 11 foot patio ceiling and
ordered 24 inch downrod and remote. Dark oiled bronze
to match patio furniture.... matches perfectly, the light is amazing in its brilliance, the fixture on the downrod due to it's design does not obscure my view from inside which was
a huge concern, and the remote allows me to turn it on
before I step out onto patio...as critters ie: snakes, bobcats
and coyotes could be lurking!!!
My electrician praised the quality of the fan and even noted
the thoughtful countersunk screw holes; and he has hung
hundreds if ceiling fans.
Am still deciding if it reminds me of a pinecone or a beehive....whatever.... it is more than "stellar" !!
I could not be more pleased.

It's a bit delicate and flimsy, you want to touch it as little as possible because you get the feeling something is going to break. Looks very much like the picture, so I'm happy.
