Someone stole my invention!

By June 2, 201011 Comments

It’s a fan in a bathroom. With chandelier pieces hanging from it.

It was in a client’s house.

I’m so sad….. I wanted to invent this. It’s a chandelier and a fan…. so I was calling it a “Chanda-Fan”.

Catchy, don’t ya think????

Darn the luck.

    It always happens like that.

    OMG!! I have seriously been trying to figure out a chanda-fan for years! I think you’ll get farther than I have-and that one isn’t nearly as pretty as I’m sure you’ll whip up!

  • Cassie @ Primitive & Proper says:

    oh man! what a great idea it was, too. but i definitely would call it a fandelier. 🙂

    You are too fun.
    Thanks for your sweet comment today. Yes, I miss him everyday but i wouldn’t want him back to suffer one more hour. I still get misty looking at pictures of him but it gets easier.

    No I invented it 10 years ago and it’s called a Fandolier! ha ha

    really…I wanted to combine a ceiling fan with a chandolier. ANd now they have them….though none as over the top as I imagine.

  • Fauxology says:

    Love your idea! I bet your line will have super cool finishes… 🙂

  • Erin says:

    Funny…made me laugh. Love the name chanda-fan!

  • Melissa says:

    I know HER! But she spells her name Shanda Phan.

  • lol, the name you created is brilliant! I think you could still create your own version and it would rock better!

    “Fandoliers” started in the 1930s actually. There was the LeVelle Fan-Lite, which had blades that disappear when the fan is turned off (see Grand Duchess ceiling fan on YouTube), the Guthfan which used a turbine-like blade and had a unique airflow that left the hot air uncirculated, and the Safety Car Fandolier, which had a revolving air-distribution louver in the bottom. All of these came in many different chandelier designs, and they’re all rare today. That bathroom vent fan reminds me vaguely of a recessed Safety Car Fandolier.
