...but I live in Dallas where summer starts in April and lasts until November. So while I really don't care for these ceiling mounted monstrosities, I must have them to beat the 100 degree heat that is sure to come. I am now in the process of replacing the horribly outdated 1970's fan fixtures in my home. They're a little pricey, but I like the look of these retro style multi-directional numbers. They might even make having a ceiling fan kind of groovy. What do you think?
