Antique-Inspired Casablanca Ceiling Fans
Burton A. Burton established the Casablanca Fan Company in 1974 in Pomona, California, amidst an energy crisis and a highly competitive market. Burton had a vision to create something more than just a ventilation device. He patterned Casablanca ceiling fans after his love of antiques and each fan was plated with an antique brass finish. In addition, each fan was constructed to be lightweight, a considerable achievement at the time. Burton’s design legacy is still visible in the many of Casablanca's current collections. Burton’s unconventional vision and business approach propelled the company into overnight success. By 1975, the Casablanca Fan Company was selling approximately $1 million in fans.
