MinkaAire Gauguin Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply beautiful... This fan looks beautiful on the roof of my outdoor deck. I love the ease of the controls and how the light is bright but yet small and built in, not bulky. Would recommend this fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MinkaAire Guaguin ceiling fan We love these ceiling fans. At first, we only ordered two, for indoor use, living room and kitchen. They go so well with our Florida decor! So happy with them, that we ordered three more! Using them on our lanai, and eventually in our bedrooms.....we will have to order 2 more to complete the bedrooms. They are super quiet, contemporary, really adding beauty to our once very ugly style ceiling fans....which we will sell at a garage sale. The 5 we have ordered were the rubbed oil bronze. I'm going to use the white ones in the remaining 2 bedrooms, they are so classy and unique!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ceiling fan Hmmm. It is gorgeous. But that is where it ends. It is loud and the light doesn't work. To be honest I wanted the light as much, if not more than the fan. It is all the more frustrating, because this was our big splurge and we completely wasted the money. We were renovating and our electrician hung it, so we can't really return it because the box, etc. were trashed. If we could, we would. It hangs and looks pretty, but that's it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fan This is our 3rd fan of this model; a little bit more expensive than I have ever paid for a fan, but worth every penny. We now have 2 of these in our FL room and 1 in our living room. I love the look and truly love how quiet it is. We have ceiling fans in both bedrooms that make a slight noise even on the lowest speed. When I can afford it, I will be replacing them as well. We had an electrician install all three so I can't say anything about installation or assembly. I originally ordered 2 and then cancelled 1 shortly after order was placed. Customer service was very accommodating and friendly; cancelled my mistake with no issues. Received from CA in about 4 days..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Fabulous Fan This fan is beautiful and so quiet. It makes our outdoor living room so much more enjoyable in the Keys' hot summer and it looks elegant. Even the switch is beautifully designed. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fan This fan looks great on my back patio and it can really move some air. I like the blades because my backyard has a tropical theme and the fan fits right in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, Quiet Fan This fan is great. Tropical look, but sleek and modern at the same time. It is quiet and moves a lot of air. We live on the beach and that climate requires that we buy something suited to outdoors, so this meets that specification. We actually love everything about this fan except that the price is more than we really wanted to pay. We would like to buy another one for our bedroom, but at over $400, we are still thinking about it. Anyway, the fan is really nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very powerful fan, only thing is, The cap that's suppose to butte up to the ceiling is too small with the remote system, so I have a half inch gap on one side.
