Beautiful Classy Simple-Style LED Ceiling Fan with Carved Solid-Wood Blades

Irene-3 hugger in brushed brass with 52” walnut blades by Matthews Fan Company.

This is one of the few small DC low-energy fans with an integrated LED light kit that we sell.  The Irene Hugger has a modern urban Scandinavian style with smooth flowing blades and sharp looking square edged tips and a touch of Art-Deco about it.  It is a hugger style ceiling fan, i.e. it has no drop rod and so is suitable for lower ceilings where a drop rod would bring the fan too low. Its appearance is rustic, yet strikingly modern with three neatly joined, solid wood carved hand-balanced blades. Its minimal profile makes it an ideal addition for a retro or Art-Deco interior design, the Irene-3H is streamlined whilst still appearing warm and natural.  It is popular for bedrooms in hotels and also restaurants and lounges.

The high quality DC motor is one of the quietest on the market (made in Taiwan where the best ceiling fans are built) so is ideal for bedrooms where any noise even of the air moving could be disturbing in the quiet of night.  It can be run on low-speed to ensure a slow gentle laminar airflow with silent movement but turned up full in the daytime when more cooling is required and the slight wind noise not noticeable.  The DC motor is also very low-energy using just 18 watts at full power for the 42″ size.

Ever popular with the Hollywood stars and fashion designers the 5-bladed version of this model has been selected by the Italian architect for GEOX’s (the classy Italian shoe fashion brand) and rolled out for all it’s new designer stores across Europe’s capitals including London, Paris, Milan and Madrid.  The London store is in the heart of Covent Garden, just opposite the tube station on Long Acre.

The white finish is popular in period Victorian and Edwardian properties where it compliments the white ceiling, cornices and rose without taking over – see pic below of an Edwardian flat in Highgate, London.  For a more contrasting feature go for the textured bronze finish.

  1. Nice style and light – Michael Neubauer (verified owner)

    I already had the Irene 3 and so bought this one as I needed a fan with a light for the bedroom. I am very happy with it as it is totally silent and looks nice.

  2. A Great Decision – Alison Warburg (verified owner)

    I got 4 of these for our kitchen and dinning area and they look stunning up plus they do a great job of keeping the air fresh especially when we have a lot of people eating.

  3. Lovely Result – Godfrey Williams (verified owner)

    I am really happy with the result now this fan is up in our bedroom plus it works so well improving our sleep at night.
