Library Ceiling Fan
+ Free Shipping100% Price Match
The beautiful windows designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his architectural projects during the Twenties and Thirties inspire the Library fan. Rather than the shockingly colorful glass used by the Victorian glass artists, Wright used subtle variations in translucency, generally in clear and white glass punctuated with highlights of color. The simple, square-glass pattern framed in a bronze fixture typifies the simplicity of design in this period, focusing the eye on the beauty of the glass.
The Library Fan is available in a Rubbed Bronze metal finish and utilizes four blades which are available in your choice of black, maple or mahogany and with a blade span of either 42" or 52". The integrated light kits is available with either incandescent or fluorescent lamps. Includes 3" and 9" downrods for 18" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods available for alternate heights. The fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately).

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."
Period Arts Fan Company
The Period Arts Fan Company was founded to develop authentic ceiling fans true to the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century architectural, interior and product design movements.
Arts & Crafts, Neoclassicism, Art Nouveau, the Wiener Werkstatte, Viennese Secessionism, the Bauhaus along with Futurism and French Art Deco are fertile sources for retrospective ceiling fan designs.
The first electric ceiling fans (c. 1890s), although well engineered and functional, were generally ornamented in what is now called the "Victorian" style. This style evolved from "naturalis", in which objects were adorned in plant and flower motifs and were highly patterned and stylized. Most of the ceiling fans on the market today are copies of, or inspired by this Victorian-era style.
Period Arts looks to the great American and European design movements of the past for inspiration in producing original interpretations of what could have been. These new alternatives possess the best of both worlds: period design and modern technology.
