Jewelry for your ceiling: Designing the Leoni

The Hunter Fan design team envisioned a homeowner with exquisite jewelry and stunning clothes in her wardrobe when creating the contemporary design of the Leoni.

Don’t think of the Leoni as a ceiling fan — think of it as jewelry for your ceiling.

It’s very easy for to think about jewelry, but when we think about accentuating our home and adding those little pieces that really make a home stunning and interesting to look at. It’s not always easy, but the Leoni chandelier inspired ceiling fan makes it easy.

The design team searched through a familiar jewelry box to find the inspiration for the Leoni: They designed the fan based off a previous international model they created.

In the International market, the design team focuses a lot on Central and South America – and especially Brazil. The designers noted that in the big Central and South American cities they never stopped doing mid-century modern design like in the United States.

A few tweaks by the design team, and the Leoni was born. They wanted this chandelier inspired ceiling fan to flow more with where U.S. home fashion trends were headed, which is why it comes with brass and brushed nickel metalwork finishes.

The brushed nickel version is for the homeowner who wants to match the hardware in his or her home: nickel faucets, nickel door knobs, nickel accents within their furniture, where it kind of ties all in together.

The bold brass finish, on the other hand, is perfect for the trend setting homeowner whose home is filled with modern decor and the latest in home fashion.

No matter which finish you chose, the Leoni is sure to add charm and appeal to any small or standard size room in your home. The Leoni is available to purchase now on Hunter’s website.
