  • Cool Off with a Desk Fan

    Fitzgerald Satin Nickel Desk Fan by Fanimation

    Despite the tip of the hat to a classic Deco-era author, this Fitzgerald desk fan looks like a prop from a futuristic movie set, just one of the reasons we're drawn to its ultra-cool looks. 

    The oscillating design comes from the Fanimation Fan Company and has a retro hip satin nickel finish.

  • Lighting for the Aging Eye

    Michael Berman, one of our manager/lighting experts, was interviewed by the St. Petersburg Times about lighting for elderly readers. In the article, Michael says that a good reading lamp should do three things:

    • Reduce peripheral shadow around the reading area to reduce eye fatigue.
    • Provide good illumination, but not too much.
    • Eliminate squinting.

    Michael always has great ideas on lighting and decor. You can read the full article here: St. Petersburg Times reading light article.
