I saw a very cool old-school fan when I stayed at the lovely Baur B&B in Piemonte.
I don’t know where they bought it, but I finally found something similar.
Restoration Hardware’s brushed nickel Allaire desk fan is gorgeous.
It’s functional, simple, and stylish. Plus, it would work with a variety of interiors, modern, rustic, contemporary, etc.
Speaking of fans, I’ve been running mine pretty much non-stop for the past week. I cannot wait until fall. Seriously.
