When the summer swelter moves in, we rely on ceiling fans as our first line of defense. (And they're on in winter too, to keep the warm air circulating.) Here's a roundup of our current favorites in steel, wood, and white acrylic, several with built-in lights.   Above: This Miami Beach bedroom designed by Magdalena Keck  has a Boffi Air Fan with natural wood blades (see the fan in black below).
