You already know we’re ceiling fan’s biggest cheerleader for keeping air moving through a space (especially in summer months, if you’re having a week like we are here at Lumens HQ). But a ceiling fan might not always be a near-term possibility, depending on your home.

For this week’s Fan Facts, we have a few favorite table fans that merge modern style with perfectly portable functionality. Whether you need to cool down at your desk or bring a breeze to your living space, here are 5 of our top picks that are ready to go where you go:

Urbanjet Table Fan by Fanimation

Urbanjet Fan By Fanimation Fans
Shiny and speedy, just like the ’57 Chevy it was modeled after. Its vintage vibes come through in the glossy paint job, a chromed “grill” and a fin-shaped carrying handle. But it doesn’t skimp on function, fitted with an adjustable tilt and oscillation plus three speed settings.

Otto Fan By Carlo Borer for Stadler Form
Ideal for the modernist who didn’t think a fan could be handsome. This Swiss design pairs high-grade steel with African Saeple wood with a whisper-quiet operation and height-adjustable feet to control the angle of airflow.

Cinni Table Fan By Atlas Fan Company
Another throwback to retro design, the Cinni pays tribute to the industrial aesthetic found in the 1930s with its cage and blades, while the double curve of the arm gives it a contemporary edge. Three monochromatic finishes ensure that it fits into a variety of spaces and styles.

Fargo Fan By Fanimation Fans
This top rated (4.8 out of 5 from our customers!) love this fan for its unique air movement. The top and bottom of the fan’s globe-shaped cage pulls air in, then pushes it out laterally. The design makes it ideal for a desktop, where you can move air without creating a cyclone of papers off of your desktop.

Max Fan/Heater by Stadler Form
Max Fan/Heater By Matti Walker for Stadler Form
This fan is anything but a summer fling–it can move from keeping you cool in the warmer months right into being a handy heater in the cooler months. The cheerful, modern color palette also make it easy to incorporate the fun design into your decor.
