The outrageously awesome Fanimation summer sale is continuing and my absolute favorite ceiling fan on the list is the Caruso. I’ve never seen anything like it! This fan will sing you to sleep each night with gentle, operatic breezes and keep the glistening moisture of the summer off your brow. This unique fan features adjustable motor heads to provide five angles of blade tilting design, from vertical to 60° in 15° increments. Brilliant!
While contemporary lighting has its perks, there’s something to be said for these incredibly festive and whimsical Caruso ceiling fans. The blades are available in either oar shaped bamboo blades, thin oval palm blades, or thin oval bamboo blades and create some stunning organic shapes as their gently turning shadows play on your walls and ceiling.
While the Caruso fan is hard to define, I would say it fits nicely in the tropical and rustic lighting categories. (Though it doesn’t feature a light, it certainly has a personality that shines.) The Caruso fan is also offered in many fixture and blade finish options, including Oil Rubbed Bronze, Antique Brass, and Pewter. The blades themselves come in a variety of shades from rich, dark brown tones of woven bamboo, to green palm leaves, a red wood finish, and even natural palm leaf finish. Any of these would look fabulous in homes with lots of wood furnishings and natural linen tones. (Wicker, bamboo, and Tiki lovers, I’m lookin’ at you!)
These Caruso discount ceiling fans will keep you looking your smoothest and will certainly keep the summer swelter at bay. The Caruso ceiling fan features an impressive 46″ blade sweep (approximately, based on the model) and is supplied with one 24″ downrod that is 1″ in diameter (though other diameter options are available). Fanimation also includes with your purchase of a Caruso fan a C3-CA wall control with two convenient fan speeds to make sure you and your home decor are as cool as a cucumber. And some of the Caruso models are even rated for damp locations, so you could even install this lovely ceiling fan in your sunroom or on your porch.
Consider purchasing some lush tropical pendant lighting to complement your Caruso ceiling fan–nothing gives your summer decor a little boost like tropical notes of light. These delightful ceiling fans will evoke memories of tiki parties and hula dances and glorious nights of summer fun celebrated in the light, soft breeze of tropical flowers.

Rustic lighting is all the rage when it comes to shabby chic home decor and Murray Feiss has their finger on the pulse of contemporary lighting whims. Flora, the newest light fixtures from this reputable company, demonstrate Feiss’ commitment to quality, creativity, and functionality. Featuring a playful, whimsical design and a chic Stardust finish, these modern candelabra fixtures will really take your breath away. Walking the line between tropical and rustic lighting, Flora is bright and elaborate and will certainly be the center of attention for guests.
The Flora family of lights includes a wall sconce that could easily double as invigorating bathroom lighting, a brilliant 3-light mini-chandelier fixture, and my favorite, the Flora 6-light chandelier. This beautiful rustic lighting fixture measures an impressive 25″ in diameter and 25″ high, so your living or dining room is sure to be washed in lovely brilliance if Flora is the centerpiece. The six candelabra bulbs have a definite traditional feel, but the golden ambiance created by Flora’s curling leaves and gentle curves is delightful, if a little difficult to define. Flora is an excellent design choice for modern homes longing for a little more playful, creative energy in their decor.

(Pardon the pun.)
ELK WOODLAND SUNRISE
by A.B. Williams
Silhouette designs are nothing new for lamp shades, but Elk Lighting seems to feature them more prominently in their Woodland Sunrise Collection as well as their Confetti and Skyline family of fixtures. The Woodland Sunrise lights are the quintessential rustic style collection, with an autumn wood cut drawing of a stark New England forest filling the entire canvas, or in this case, the shade. This collection features five fixtures including a pocket sconce, a table lamp, a large pendant and two smaller pendants. These are the sort of contemporary lighting fixtures that would be ideal for cabins, hunting lodges, Elk, Moose and Rotary clubs, and hotels in the Pacific Northwest.
The pocket sconce measures 11″wide x 8″ height x 5″extension and uses two 60 watt candelabra bulbs. The large Woodland Sunrise pendant light utilizes five 60 watt bulbs, and measures 24″ in diameter, 8″ in height and comes with 30″ of extension rods. Personally, I am not a fan of these types of fixtures, but I know that many of you out there are, so let’s hear it for diversity. And what do I know? I’m just a city slicker. If I lived out in the woods long enough, I might start to like these too.
