Parrot Uncle Chrome Indoor Ceiling Fan

Parrot Uncle Chrome Indoor Ceiling Fan

PARROT UNCLE CHROME CEILING FAN

It is a combination of a retractable ceiling fan and crystal chandelier. When switched off, the intrusive fan blades automatically retract and conceal, and visually the unit transforms into a slim, modern chandelier.

Maybe we’re too easily entertained, but watching this fan in action is something magical. When switched off, the fan blades automatically retract and it transforms into an inconspicuous looking chandelier. How cool is that?

The chandelier itself is inspired by the interior design styles of the early 20th century (think Great Gatsby and the roaring 20s) and would fit seamlessly into an art deco home.

Harbor Breeze Parklake Indoor Ceiling Fan

This Parklake fan has the same art deco-inspired elegance as the previous fan, just without the retractable blades and with a more antique aesthetic. We can imagine it in the foyer of a grand old New York hotel, or the entrance hall of a hipster’s (probably overpriced) apartment.
