They’re playful, fun and promise to spice up a lacklustre living space - this is why a wall fan is the decoration you didn’t know you needed.
The perfect way to weave texture into your living space, these are ornately folded and crafted fans, which take pride of place on your walls. Some are made from paper, and some from bamboo, and they generally have tassels in their middle which hang decoratively.
Not sure you can get on board with the trend? It might help to know that a slew of interior supremos have endorsed it, including self-confessed eclectic maximalist interior designer Beth Diana Smith and the equally brilliant Shavonda Gardner, whose palm-print fans are a focal point in her living room.
So, if you’re looking to spruce up a blank space in your home with a little burst of textured fun, look no further than a decorative wall fan; here are seven of our favourites.
