Minka Aire Artemis Ceiling Fans

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Minka Aire Artemis ceiling fans have a unique design that sets them apart from other fans. The eye-catching design of this George Kovacs collection won a Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. Artemis fans feature sleek, one-of-a-kind blades that also make up the motor housing creating a streamlined design. With some ceiling fans you might have to lose a little in the performance and functionality department for a stylish design, but not in this case. Artemis ceiling fans will add a cooling breeze to any room with its powerful performance.

Interior designers often choose the Artemis ceiling fan because it adds to the room’s décor because of its unique design. The Artemis fan was featured in a blog post by Amy Azzarito on Design*Sponge about a New York country home that was designed by Nina Gotlieb. When designing this home, Nina wanted to create a relationship between the surrounding forest and the home by using simple and modern detailing. The Minka Aire F803-MP Artemis ceiling fan with a maple finish was featured in the two guest bedrooms along with the master bedroom. These rooms included a lot of maple wood details throughout the room, so the maple Artemis fan was a perfect fit for these rooms. The fan blended in with the room’s décor but still stood out due to its exceptional design.

My favorite Fanimation ceiling fan is the Palisade FP240AB fan. It has an antique brass finish with wide oval natural palm leaf blades. I probably wouldn’t get the cute parrot accessory for the palisade fan though. My dog and cats would go crazy thinking a bird is in the house. I would however add the filigree accessory to the fan like the picture below. I think it adds a classy touch to an already beautiful ceiling fan (plus a lot less commotion in a house with crazy animals).
