SwatchPop employee, Ashley, loved the convenience of a ceiling fan in her bedroom but also wanted to add something with major style above her bed. She wasn’t sure if it was possible to incorporate both convenience and style but the Torsion ceiling fan did exactly that! She ended up with a sleek and modern ceiling fan that complemented her existing bedroom decor perfectly. To top off the project, we added these fabulous table lamps from Lumens.
