A Rustic Fan That Begs for a Chill Night In

As they say in the American South, summer can be “hot enough to make you tell the truth.” One truth that may be on your mind, if you’re lucky enough to have a cooling system of any sort, is that your fan is, in all likelihood, a serious eye-sore of industrial design meets economy plastic. For those looking to upgrade, Jasper Startup’s Wind S fan is a welcome choice, nesting a clean metal fan in a curved basket of handwoven dark pulut. Blending modern and organic styles, the Wind S by Italian furniture company Gervasoni 1882 is a versatile piece that can stand on a table or a floor. Wherever you place it, the fan will make your home that much cooler and maybe even inspire you to stay indoors, curled up with a chilled beer and your favorite collection of Southern lit.
