The Period Arts Fans Story
As a branch of the Modern Fan Company, Period Arts Fans started in 2007 when designer and owner Ron Rezek became interested in the rich history and character provided by period-styled fixtures. He soon discovered that this fan line was basically the polar opposite of Modern Fan, requiring its own separate catalog to best represent its unique personality.
Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Dirk Van Erp, and other early 20th century designers, the Period Arts Fan Company by Modern Fan Company invokes the designs of the past using present technology.
Why We Love Period Arts Fans
Inspired by movements like Arts & Crafts, Neoclassicism, Bauhaus, French Art Deco and Futurism, Period Arts Fans give spaces a solid sense of character and identity. And expert craftsmanship is instantly evident in each Period Arts Fan Co. design, from their Craftsman ceiling fans to Restoration fans. Each ceiling fan is true to the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century architectural, interior and product design movements, adapted for today's homes.
