Someone published this ceiling fan picture in a blog post some time ago, the post was called "things people do wrong" and the author shared a small list of fail pictures illustrating things that are wrong, or so he thinks they are, and one of these things was a ceiling fan, because some of them have 5 blades and 4 lights, and I have to agree with the guy on this because it just doesn't makes sense, the perfect ceiling fan would have the same number of blades as of lights.
I decided to do some research on this and I searched for ceiling fans and lights at Farreys.com, this is a website with thousands of lights, lamps, chandeliers and other similar lighting stuff for sale, and of course, also has ceiling fans.
The ceiling fans page alone seems to have hundreds of products for sale, I didn't browse through all of them, but the ones I did saw give you the impression that the ceiling fan manufacturers have realized that the "5 blades 4 lights" ceiling fan was not a good idea because all the ones I saw only have 1 light! The number of blades vary, there are fans with 3, 4, 5 blades, but they all had only 1 light! Interesting. Or maybe I checked the wrong pages…
Ok, that was my big research project for the day and now I'm going to look for some other funny fails and funny pictures online. While I'm gone, check out the other cool lighting stuff at the website, like the Fine Art lamps (traditional handcrafted lights with amazing design, check out the "Midsummer Nights Dream Collection"), the Sea Gull Lighting (some of the more beautiful home and indoor lighting products I've seen), and all the other lighting products for sale online from famous manufacturers like Fontana Arte, Hinkley Lighting, Kichler Lighting, Maxim Lighting, George Kovacs, Ambience, Fine Art Lamps, and more. Enjoy!
Update: Here is another good resource for those of you who are looking for a home lighting online shop.
