Rated 4 out of 5Â by BrianP Great fan, but the paint job is not the same as pictured here.
We purchased fan along with the "matching" 2-Light Walnut Semi-Flush Mount fixture (Store SKU # 831546). We really like the old distressed metal look of the Chateau Devill collection. Unfortunately the fan does not have this same old metal look as pictured here. Ours was a dark brown with gold painted ornamentation around the motor area (see attached photo). While it still looks nice, it does look a little "cheaper" than the other fixture. Also because of this, they do not match. The bad part is I didn't notice it until after I paid an electrician to install it. So we are stuck with what we have. The only other this is this fan only works with the remote as there are no chains to control it with.

I absolutely love the look of this fan. I purchased 2, one for my kitchen and one for my den. I also purchased the matching chandelier and 3 flush mounts. Both fans wobble a little and I hadn't taken the time to balance them. The wood was somewhat darker than the matching pieces. Love having remote controls for the fans, although we keep it mounted on the wall. One nice feature on the remote is, the light dims if you hold the light button down. The lighting is not bright, but a soft light, due to the amber globe. Max light is 60w. Overall the fan is a great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by rex07 Nice looking fan, a litle dark. Modified for lower ceiling.
I really like this fan. The bronze and gold accents really went well in the room and it was the most attractive fan I could find. I especially like the detailing above. One problem is it comes with a 12" downrod, which is really only suitable for rooms with 10 ft ceilings or more. I had a 9 ft ceiling so I decided to shorten it by cutting it with a hacksaw and then re-drilling the hole for the pin. (I think you can buy shorter downrods though it might not match in color). In the picture you can see how it looks, still plenty of room for the decorative pieces. I took about 4" off the downrod. For an 8 ft ceiling, you could remove more but then you'd have to live without the decorative pieces. The remote receiver on mine was bad, made a buzzing noise and wouldn't run the fan very fast. Called Hampton Bay and they sent a new one right out. As others have said, the glazing on the lamp enclosure makes the light somewhat dark. I may replace the three 40w bulbs with 40w halogens (60w equivalent light output).

I read the review that included photo...(thanks!) I was attracted to the fan because of the style depicted in Home Depots photo. The reviewer is correct. It is NOT what you receive!!! You get the fan shown in the reviewers photo.
I took a chance that it wouldn't be 'cheesy' as described because I loved the style so much.
I actually liked the photo or the Home Depot depiction. So I bought.
It arrived quickly and was in perfect condition. Installation went smoothly (because we hired it done) and it didn't need balancing at all.
I love the remote control use. Light dims, fan speed all through the remote.
What I don't like is that they didn't include the battery for the remote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You get 3 light bulbs and no stinkin battery!!!! So get your battery if you order this fan. It is a 12V little thing. Cost about $2
I love the look, quality of the entire embellishment of the paint techniques. It has a rusted look to it along with the gold accents. All very very well done. I noticed zero flaws.
I am not crazy in love with the blades though because of the descrepancy in the 'faux' walnut look. You can choose what side you prefer and I am satisfied with it. They look fine. We have 9ft ceilings and this fan is whisper quiet.
Overall I am very impressed with it and surprised as well. I didn't Hampton Bay has this quality.
We heat with wood and this fan helps disperse the heat and level out our entire homes heat 'feel'.
