No patio is complete without a ceiling fan to help “beat the heat” in warmer months. This outdoor ceiling fan is by Ellington and called “Tahiti”. Now the first thing that strikes me about this design is the fan blades. The fan blades are shaped like palm leaves giving it a cool island feel that is perfect for outdoor decorating. I also like the darker finish on the metal parts of the fan. Being outside is going to create more weather for any outdoor ceiling fan so for that reason, I like to stay away from brass or nickel finishes. Price: $207.
