Not our readers---our fans! We really appreciate the breeze of our ceiling fans. The white one in the living room had never been my favorite. I get the idea that the builder was trying to have it blend into the white ceiling. But really? Can a fan blend into a ceiling? So when this one died, save the light, I spent many hours shopping for a replacement. We have a lot of oak in the room and I wanted a lighter wood blade than most have.
