With its brushed-nickel chrome finish, the 42” Vintage Gyro from Minke Aire is perfect for a room that combines modernity with a throw-back flare. Its extremely unique design draws inspiration from 50s and 60s era table fans.

Progress Lighting designed this 24” fan for small spaces. It’s brushed-nickel finish screams DINER, but in a good way. (Points if you’ve ever seen Disney’s The Rocketeer.)

This 70” ceiling fan from Monte Carlo features blades with unique upward curves. It’s all about simplicity. The fan is a big deal, it knows it, and doesn’t need to waste time screaming at you about it.

The Tie Dye fan is from Minke Aire’s Tear collection. Because the market has been demanding a tie dye fan for years.

The windmill-inspired Prairie Grand ceiling fan from Monte Carlo has a large 72” diameter and features not 12 but 14 blades.™-iv-led-64-ceiling-fan/sku-V39-f903l-sbr-mbk

This creative fan is perfect for modern rooms with it’s 4-blade design featuring sharp curves on each blade. 4-blade fans are relatively uncommon, and this one provides an extra “twist.”

This graphite-steel finish from Minke Aire’s Dreamstar has mesmerizing dimples and curvature on the blades. The only problem is it needs to be run on low speed to notice!

If somebody from the 1950s was imagining what fans would like like in the future, this is what they’d imagine. The 36” size is perfect for a modestly sized room and would be a nice complement to your Warhol.

No legit modern fan collection is complete without a 2-blade design. The drop from the ceiling to the blades on this one from Progress Lighting gives it a bit of chrome-y flair.™-led-37-ceiling-fan/sku-V39-f304l-orb-mm

Any fan called Gage Free Gyro has to be good, and Minke Aire brought some originality to this one. This fan will work will perfectly in a rectangular, long room.

The Monte Carlo 54” Butterfly is inspired by the wings of a butterfly. This fan is damp-rated for indoor and outdoor use, so imagine this over your rose-party with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda on a hot summer eve.

Maxim hit this one out of the park. It’s more like modern art, with a fan blade tucked inside. This unit has a short downpost, so works great in a room with lower ceilings.

Inspired Gold by Access. The name says it all- this fan is inspiring. The wrap-around curved blade cage combined with the three stubby blades create a beautiful visual effect.

The 16” Gleam by Fanimation is perfect for small spaces. The circular 18 watt LED light with opal frosted glass frames the 4-blade fan perfectly.

Artcraft truly created art with this one. Inspired by candelabras with a contemporary flair, this eight light fandelier is easy on the eyes. Pair with Edison filament bulbs for maximum impact.

This is a brilliant reproduction of a classic belt-driven fan first introduced to the ceiling fan scene in the late 1800s. You can imagine this in an Old West tavern (which is fitting, as it’s called The Brewmaster).

Post-modern art that creates a cool breeze, the eye catching Torto from Fanimation is the perfect center piece for any contemporary room. The three wrap-around blades create a unique airflow, pushing at an angle instead of straight down like most traditional fans.

No matter how hard you try, you can’t ignore this fan. If you’re trying to create an ancient-Egypt inspired paradise, this is the one you want. You can configure the Palmetto from Fanimation to be as long as you’d like, up to 46 feet long. Yes, you read that right. 46 FEET.

This is a contemporary take on the late 1800s style belt-drive system. The blade units themselves can be placed in any configuration, making this a very dynamic piece. Surprise, surprise, it’s extremely affordable to, coming in at only $299.97, but on sale now for $199.98.

A fan with a single blade? Yep. The Enigma from Fanimation is a Hollywood icon, appearing as Will Smith’s co-star in the movie iRobot. There is no other fan like it in the world.

How do you describe this one? Its unique mounting design uses two separate posts attached to the outside end of the blades, rather than a hub in the middle. It’s highly decorative, and brings a whisper of air movement to rooms in a big way.

The Terna by Kichler is the perfect fan for modernists. Its compact stature makes it a good fit for small spaces, and it’s vertically-oriented blade design draws inspiration straight out of sci-fi novels.

Meyde Tiffany’s Tall Pines collection is vast, and incredible. Whether you’re designing the lodge at a multi-million dollar ski resort, or looking for something for your own humble hunting retreat, this are what you want to hang. The shade on this chandel-air features Ambra Siena Idalight, casting a beautiful, warm hue.

With two drop stages this 27 light chandel-air is a wrought iron masterpiece. The two mica diffusers illuminate behind handpainted green pine tree silhouettes wrapped in textured black. With an 80” drop this is created for very large spaces with very high ceilings. Of course, if you’re spending $14,000 on a fan, having a really big space to hang it probably isn’t an issue.

The Marquee Gural from Meyda Tiffany is the most expensive fan on our list, by a lot. Coming in at a whopping $30,240, this fan is only for those with discerning taste. This baby is all drama and sophistication. Clear glass with prismatic lines provide a dimensional illusion and textural look that’s not seen in any other piece on this list.

The Meyda Tiffany Lady Slipper collection is custom crafted in Yorkville, New York by artisans…wWhich accounts for the $5200 price tag. No two are identical, and the burnished brass tint with silver mica finish screams hand-made.

The above 30 fans just scratch the surface of the brave new world of ceiling fan design! Will one of these work for your space? Or perhaps you’d prefer something a little more… traditional.
