Fanimation is a company that was literally built from the ground up. It started twenty-seven years ago with a man, a garage, a concept and a dream. The man was Tom Frampton, his garage was in Pasadena, CA, his concept was to design unique and innovative ceiling fans and his dream was to channel his passion for creating high quality ceiling fans into a revenue producing enterprise. I am pretty certain that Tom Frampton has fulfilled his dreams.
Fanimation ceiling fans is now a thriving company and has had their Fanimation fans featured in Vanity Fair, Modernism and Phoenix Home and Garden. They have also made it to the big screen, being shown in the movie I, Robot and on HGTV in Extreme Makeover Home Addition. How cool is that!?
The Fanimation fans collection is made up of a variety of uniquely designed fans, capable of accenting and adding to any living space. These fans come in so many styles and finishes, it is impossible that you would not find one that is suitable for your taste and style.
The Fanimation Landon is a 6 speed Fanimation fan with Reversing and Up and Down Light Dimming. This fan makes saving energy look stylish as it is equipped with super-efficient, cool-to-the-touch, high quality LED bulbs housed inside a white frosted glass diffuser. Changing a light bulb is usually the last thing I think about. It is also one of the last items that I have randomly on hand. With this Fanimation ceiling fan you won’t have to worry about changing a bulb for years!
The Fanimation Windpointe is a 5-Blade Fan complete with three speeds. This fan greets you in any room with a cool design and captivating style. The Windpointe will definitely act as a focal point in any room that you put it in.
Why not make this next fan a part of your homes décor? The Fanimation Arden combines functionality with aesthetics. Recalling the clean and classic lines of an arthitects tripod, this Fanimation fan is a unique piece for your home. My favorite part about this fan is that it is a floor fan, but it doesn’t have that boring plastic feel to it. It can really act as a standalone piece, all the while serving a purpose in your space.
The Fanimation Multimax comes with a 3 speed touch screen remote with learn-mode, timer & 3-minute light delay on/off. This versatile Fanimation ceiling fan has six lighting and blade configurations. I love that it comes with a touch screen remote. I like to think of myself as a relatively technology savvy person, a touch screen remote allows me to have the best of all things.
Years ago, Tom Frampton, an avid antique fan collector, joined the Antique Fan Collectors Association (AFCA). The membership operated a museum since 1997 displaying fans on loan by the membership. The museum was once located in Vornado Fan Co. in Wichita Kansas. The need to move became apparent, so Fanimation offered to house it in its facility in Zionsville. The rest is history!
