The 12 new fans, available in a variety of sizes and exclusive finishes, consist of updated designs ranging from modern and traditional, to transitional and classic for residential and light commercial settings. “Clean, sleek designs with improved performance are the inspiration behind our new ceiling fans,” said John Moody, director of product management – ceiling fans, Kichler. “We strive to create top-tier options that exceed customer expectations.” “As functional, air moving products, ceiling fans are expected to create a cool effect resulting in a comfortable environment,” said Moody. “For this reason, we strived to produce exceptional airflow with our fans in this release. In addition, considerable amounts of the new models utilize LED lighting, which in turn saves on energy costs. Our goal is to continuously find ways to best serve the market, and we’re confident that we’ve accomplished that with this new introduction.” Heightened Designs and FinishesChic styles are the theme in the 2016 ceiling fan line, in addition to new finishes including a renewed Natural Brass, Matte White and impressive Sterling Gold™.
