There’s something particularly captivating about soft indoor lighting during the fall and winter seasons. The stained glass design of the Astoria Grand Newells Blade Ceiling Fan offers just that.

The five wood grain-textured blades are black on one side and mahogany on the other, further enhancing its versatility. The fan has a span of 52 inches, reversible three-speed motor and pull-chain switch.
