PRETTY NECES SARY
With homeowners becoming more in tune with design trends, even the appliances they buy have to be pretty. These include ceiling fans, which have a bad reputation for being an unsightly, albeit necessary, home appliance. The Intaglio DC-159 by Acorn Ceiling Fan, however, easily proves that that is a misconception. Measuring 130cm, the Intaglio sports subtle curves and is clad in a natural wood grain. You can opt for an LED light that’s available in three colour temperatures, too. Sleek and simple, this is one fan you’d want to show off!
Intaglio DC -159 is also available in Matte-Black and Matte-White, and is priced from $249. Find it at www.acornceilingfan.com or authorised Acorn retailers.
