Table top fans


Fans may not seem like the kind of item that can be stylish and functional, but in this inspiration board we rounded up several table fans that blend unique design with breezy purpose.


This quirky guitar-shaped fan would make a perfect gift for a music-loving dad with a man cave. This 7 in.

Looking for a cute table fan to put in your child’s nursery to serve as a white noise machine? This elephant-shaped table top fan would fit right into an animal-themed room.


The Soleus Air 8in. Soft-Blade Table Fan is great if you need to place a table fan somewhere low, as little ones and pets won’t hurt themselves if they get too close. Its soft blades also make it super quiet! With its vintage vibe and nostalgic shape, this Deco Breeze 7  in. Woody Car fan would be perfect for an old lake house or a sunroom. If you’re looking for a fan that combines superior power without the noise, the Dyson Air Multiplier is a customer favorite. Because it has no blades, it is nearly silent, but it also isn’t dangerous for children and doesn’t require a weekly dusting!


With its hot pink color palette, the Vornado Flippi V6 personal fan would be the perfect option for sending off to camp with your kids! In fiery red, this Vornado Zippi 7in. Fan has soft nylon blades and two different air speeds! Looking for something that offers more than just a soft breeze?

Outdoor Lighting Ideas for Your Front Porch

Inspiration board of Outdoor Lighting Ideas


When it comes to curb appeal, outdoor lighting is a great way to give your home’s façade a face lift. We love the way a lantern in an unusual shape or color can set your home apart from every other home on the block. We rounded up a few of our favorites.

The Acclaim Lighting Dover Collection is tall at 16 inches, and while it looks quite classic, two of these lanterns on both sides of a front door would make a dramatic statement.

For a simple, understated option, the Hampton Bay Bronze Wall Lantern is a classic.
