I bought 3 of these fans for my brand new home after installing one in my parents home 2-3 years back and experiencing its quality. This fan is one of the few reasonable priced fans that you can buy for your home. It gives the home a warm, rich feeling for cheap lol. Im an electrician, in my experience of buying beautiful fans i've came to realize that they're there just for the look, because they don't give much breeze, but not this fan, it gives a great deal of breeze over a great margin of area. I have this fan installed in my kitchen, master bedroom and my living room. Another great thing about this fan is it has an entire lighting family collection, makes it easy to find a light fixture to match with the fan. Only problem with this fan is the lighting is terrible, so you may want to install another source of light in the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Nice looking fan at good price with a couple of issues
Attractive ornamental design.
No fan wobble at all on low & medium...slight wobble as expected on high setting.
Convenience of remote control.
The finish on the product was not fully "cured/dried", a common problem with goods manufactured in China. While assembling it a thumb print size section of the downrod finish rubbed off on my hand so had to find something to touch it up with. No pen or paint touchup is included with this fan.
I knew the glass shade was bit a dark before purchasing it and like a few other reviewers I also found the included 40 watt incandescent bulbs inadequate. I replaced those bulbs with dimmable "60 watt equivalent" LED candelabra based flame tip bulbs. Light output seems about twice as bright as the 40w incandescent, plus reduced current draw and heat.
Light turns on by itself intermittently. Now it may not be any defect in the receiver and just a stray RF signal from somewhere. I bit of a hassle though to get back up there and try changing the DIP switch settings to a different frequency. I wired it through a wall switch so for now I just flip that off when not using it.
If I had one criticism of the design I don't think the blades are up to the same level of quality & appearance of the fixture. Blades have a decent veneer applied but they are thin and completely flat with no character in my opinion. I wound up replacing them with a 60" set designed for an Emerson fan.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 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).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aprilsunshine A true FAN!
The Chateau Deville ceiling fan is beautiful! Although the blades could be a little bigger, it is still a very nice fan. I purchased a 48 inch pole and had a time installing due to my very high ceilings but the results are amazing. I just love the remote control feature. I hung this next to my light switch for easy access. Such a pleasure to use. On top of everything, a few days after receiving my fan, I noticed the price had changed to 30 percent off. I called Home Depot and without hesitation, they refunded me the difference. I am truely a FAN of my new FAN!

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'.
