5 Blade 56" Ceiling Fan - Light, Wall Control and Blades Included
Just had this fan installed in our Great room (which has 18 foot ceilings). It is simply gorgeous. It doesn't wobble AT ALL. Very nice, very high quality. Love the wall remote. It was a nice surprise to see that the lights can be dimmed (I didn't realize that). It is also very easy to change the fax speed AND the fan direction. Love it.
By the way ... we added the ceiling medallion (see our uploaded photo). We think this really makes it look nice ...

The picture does not do it justice as you cannot see the details that make this fan so beautiful. I'm so glad we purchased it and it looks absolutely amazing in our family room. You will not find a fan like this in a typical lighting store.

This fan is gorgeous and is stunning in our office, which is done in a Venetian plaster. Beware when choosing matching ceiling medallion with this. The large medallion does not fit the 56 inch fan, even though the description states it is made for the Napoli fans. According to customer service at Minka, the small medallion has a larger center hole to fit the 56 inch fan. The omission of this information added about 3 days to our installation and my husband engineered a way to mount the fan and canopy into the larger medallion.

The most beautiful fan ever!!
I am not a lover of ceiling fans so it took me over two years to find a fan for my family room. I saw this fan on Houzz and fell in love. I then began to search online and was so happy when I found it. My husband just installed it and it is absolutely beautiful. I ordered the Tuscan Patina and worried that it might be too light, but with my dark leather sectional and dark entertainment unit the contrast is perfect. The fan has a lot of gold which worked. If you are looking for a fan that is above the ordinary, this is it. The fan arrived quickly and everything was in tact. Thanks LightingDirect!!

Very Good Purchase
This fan is beautiful and very quiet. It is a heavy fan so be sure that you have a sturdy and appropriate support structure. I had to make some alterations as our electrical box was large with no break-out tabs. In addition, we were mounting into a concrete ceiling.
I would also recommend at least using the 12" down rod. This was not possible for our bedroom installation as we have a rather large, ornate bed with tall posts and a metal canopy. We had to go with the 3" down rod. This made installation much more challenging as we had next to no room to do the necessary wiring with the fan canopy so close to the ceiling before securing it in place to the mounting bracket.
Because of the down rod challenge and the concrete ceiling, installation took several days as I had to decide and purchase some hardware for proper support and attachment. The wiring instructions were spot on and the light assembly was a snap. But even with the installation headaches, the smaller down rod, etc. we are very happy with this product. It matches our decor, operates smoothly and efficiently, and helps keep our 3rd flood bedroom cooler.

Got To Love That Minka Brand!
I found out about Minka brand products when I bought 3-of their beautiful bathroom lights fixtures. I next bought two Minka fans that were just beautiful, So far everything I had gotten w/ the Minka name had been perfect and held up to their name now it was time for my me to pick out 3-more fans and I know which ever Minka Fans I pick out will be perfect! So I just wanted to share that everything I have bought from Minka has been just perfect and I think their designs are just unique which is a must for me!

Made the right choice.
After going back and forth deciding what fan to purchase I finally purchased this one. The style of the fan fits perfectly in our room. The ceiling light and fan are very well made and it is the best fan we have ever purchased. We have had so many compliments on how beautiful the fan is.

Old time charm and quality
This is a great looking fan, one that looks great and makes a statement. This is my second MINKA fan and I would not buy any other. The in wall control is first class, the motor is quality quiet and they do as designed, move air.

Fan has silver accents - I was hoping for more gold. However, it is a very nice fan. We love the wall remote control.

This fan became the focal point of my cathedral ceiling room. It's a transitional room with contemporary flair and this worked really well. Very Happy with my purchase.
