Ceiling Fan - "Cirque" by Minka Air

Okay, we have to admit, we found another modern fan that works. We used this one, Cirque by Minka, for three children room's. The soft shapes reduced the children's aprehension against menacing rotary blades. The insets of the padels can be unsrewed. We are going to use this advantage to paint them several colors to match the rooms' decor. The fan comes with a fan control switch. The overall heihgt was surprisingly low and workes well with a 8' ceiling

"The cutting edge design of the MinkaAire Circue pushes boundaries, and rediscovers the artistic balance between art and function. The Cirque features six oval shaped blades, a simple round body, and a built-in halogen light fixture and comes with a full function wall mount remote control that replaces any normal light switch without the need for extra wiring.

Window - "Rhino Aluminum Windows" by Gerkin

This is our own hot trade secret; so don't tell. These windows by Gerkin are just DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. You can see in this image a fixed window (the big one) and a casement (on the left), and a hopper (on the right). These come with a thermal break in the frame, which makes them usable nationwide and give you a good insulation value. They are sleek and simple to install. Each one is custom made, but compare well in price with other brands. There relative thinness also allowes us to finish the opening out on the inside very minimally.

"Our primary focus has been to manufacture energy saving window and door products. Throughout our history we have established ourselves as an innovator in the design and manufacturing capability of insulated windows and doors. Stringent product testing and innovative design has allowed our products to evolve as market and consumer needs change. In the winter of 1989-90 we started to conceptualize and design our Rhino Commercial Aluminum window series. Today we have several commercial window styles in the Rhino line. This window series consists of a commercial horizontal slider, casement, hopper, awning, fixed and hung windows. Each Rhino window reflects the design and manufacturing expertise we’ve implemented over the years. We also publish our AAMA test results to back up our claims of product performance and quality."

Switches, Outlets - "Aspire" by Cooper Wiring Devices

We used this line in a modern house of ours and loved the finished look of it. The added benefit was, that not only was the electrical contractor familiar with using it, since they are very basic decor pieces, but we were also able to pick up extra pieces quickly at a near by Lowe's. Our fan distributor was able to easily add a fan control switch from the same line to our order as it became apparent that we needed it. Your local electrical contractor should be able to provide them for you.
