Good, Better, Best: Retro-Cool Table Fans

There's something so old-fashioned about cooling off with a portable fan, so why not get one with a cool retro look? With the heat wave that's now scorching several states — not to mention back-to-school shopping for dorm dwellers — I've rounded up three stylish vintage-looking fans for tight budgets and total splurges.

Good: I love the dark chrome finish on this Aloha Credenza Fan in Polished Nickel ($19.99), and you can't beat the price.

Two even better fans, so

Better: The old-school oscillating fan gets a chic coat of paint: the Vivre Selection Cool Breeze Fan ($75) comes in bright blue or funky orange.

Best: The one I'm really craving is the VornadoFan 60th Anniversary Special Edition Retro Table Fan ($99.99). It's display worthy looks and incredibly soft whir make it well worth the price.

I can't believe this post; I JUST purchased a retro fan for my desk at work. Bed, Bath, and Beyond sells a Hunter fan that is really attractive. It's chrome, almost silent and has garnered a ton of compliments since I brought it in last week. $60.

i have something like the "best" one - it was about 70$ and so worth it! it pushes much more air than the standard oscillating fan and is just so well made and sturdy! i bought a cheaper oscillating fan afterwards and it already broke

Don't buy that first fan by Aloha Breeze from Walmart. I did and it sounded like a lawn mover on the low setting and GOT WORSE as you went from med to high. It is pretty but a total waste of money!

Oooooooh Casa! I love you for this post. I have been looking for a retro-styled fan and haven't had any luck scoring vintage. How did you know? Big rock star points for you.

Wow! I remember growing up using a fan like these! It wasn't as retro as these are but still. And I still get a kick out of say 'Ahhhhhhhh' right in front of a retro fan and hear that cool sound it makes! LOL! Am I alone on this? hahaha...
