Fanimation Fargo


One of the best ways to achieve a nice breeze or some solid airflow within a small room or workspace (rooms that tend to hinder the ability to install any type of ceiling fan) is with the very classic selection of portable fans from Fanimation.

Fanimation Old Havana

The best part about Fanimation’s collection of portable fans is their unique and very timeless designs; some of their most popular portable fans are the Fargo and the Old Havana, which, according to fanimation.com, “were inspired by antique fans in Tom Frampton’s extensive collection. Although the fans have distinctly different looks and features, they share a common history.”

These fans were motivated by a fan Frampton saw in an antique shop, a more updated version of the Savory Aerator, and the result was the Fargo; according to Fanimation, “the Fargo showcases the same globe shaped cage as the original Aerator fan, however the base of the Fargo is more modernized and features classic accents.”

A wonderful part about these fans, especially the Fargo, is that they create a very effective breeze that won’t disturb an area of work (in your office or at home desk).

Some other models of Fanimation’s portable fans are the Old Havana, bringing home the tropics with its unique design; the Urbanjet, a more retro version of the portable fan; and the Arden, a wonderfully distinct design with wooden long legs to create an ample breeze within your space.

Holtkotter Bernie Turbo


Holtkotter is joining the elite manufacturers on the LED technology front with unique and innovative products offered in both LED and low-voltage application options.

The thing that sets Holtkotter apart from others is their excellence in light output as well as the array of superior dimmable options for their LED table lamps, torchiere’s and floor lamps; Holtkotter even develops and manufactures their own dimming systems, such as the Dimm-System P1.

Holtkotter 2625 LED


Holtkotter is ahead of the game because of the amount of light they can achieve with these energy-efficient products, it is often a hard feat to get a light output that is close to if not equivalent to that of a bulb with more power consumption or wattage.

Take Holtkotter’s sleek Bernie Turbo Series Energy-Saver floor lamp for example, as it gives a surprisingly optimal light output, equivelant to an 80W Halogen, while only consuming 12W of energy; and the Raumfluter 2625 LED torchiere is known as Holtkotter’s “Ultimate Lighting Machine” with a proprietary LED reflector and the Holtkotter Dimm-System P1. The 2565 LED has an amazing light output of 3360 Lumens, which is equivalent to a 240W Halogen, while only consuming 36W.

Holtkotter is now only moving forward with even more designs in LED lighting with higher optimal light output, hoping to achieve an equivalency of a 400W Halogen with less than 50W; in hopes of soon accomplishing this, Holtkotter is continuing to encourage education in LED technology and move ahead with its LED research.

Savoy House Windsor Chandelier


For the month of October, Savoy House Lighting is continuing their latest “Collection of the Month” campaign and is focusing on the sophisticated Windsor collection from Brian Thomas.

Savoy House Semi-Flush Mount

The Windsor collection features a line of fixtures with smooth cream fabric shades that are the perfect setting for the highlighted antique gold filigree insets, which harmonize beautifully with the plush Fiesta Bronze finish. Products from the Windsor collection add a regal and inviting presence to any space.

Savoy’s Windsor collection offers wall sconces, vanity lights, semi-flush mounts and chandeliers of varying silhouettes that complement their design aesthetic brilliantly. The bold, striking lines and overall attractive outlines of Windsor create a contemporary elegance that delights and engages with its quality craftsmanship and classic style.

An exciting bonus about Savoy’s “Collection of the Month” is that for the entire month of October, all products in the Windsor collection will be offered at 15 percent off the regular price.

The unique shades added to the design of this collection makes Windsor the stylish and pronounced collection it is; the timeless, very stately presence of the wall sconces and vanities will tie in beautifully with the drum shaded semi-flush mount or 5 light chandelier. The wonderful part about the chandeliers within Windsor is the distinctive difference in design between the 6 light and the 5 light chandeliers; Savoy House truly gives you a nice choice in design scheme with the Windsor collection.
