Below are our three top trending ceiling fan styles for this year and beyond:

Three Blades and Soft Curves

With three or four sweeping curved blades, these contemporary ceiling fans boast a sleek look that instantly improve the style of any modern living space. The big winners feature soft curved molded ABS or carved wood blades.

Industrial-Style Ceiling Fans with Vintage Bulbs

Industrial style is making its way into all types of lighting fixtures and home furnishings this year, and ceiling fans are no different. If you love this look, the must-have industrial-style ceiling fans include models with impressive caged light kits featuring vintage Edison bulbs.

Outdoor Ceiling Fans

Outdoor living is always in, but this year ceiling fans are showing up in patios, porches and sunrooms more than ever before. With all-weather blades, motors and finishes, outdoor ceiling fans are built to withstand the elements so you don't have to worry about rust or wear.

Lamps Plus Tip for Finding the Right Outdoor Fan

All outdoor spaces are not created equal. The number one tip to finding the right outdoor ceiling fan is knowing the difference between a damp-listed and a wet-listed ceiling fan.

In our ultimate guide on how to buy a ceiling fan – which divulges other helpful tips – we explain the difference between the two:

Damp listed ceiling fans are ideal for outdoor areas that are covered, but don't get directly exposed to rain or water. Go for a damp listed fan if you have a covered patio or porch. Wet- listed fans, on the other hand, can be installed in uncovered areas such as open-air patios and decks.
