Today we’d like to introduce you to Maura Rossi.
Hi Maura, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am an interior designer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We use ceiling fans here all year round. Being a creator and solving design problems (which I love to do), I had an obstacle that presented itself on one of my residential projects. As I was reviewing a design for the master suite in my client’s home, I showed her a beautiful fixture befitting the amazing design that was planned for the room. She immediately said, “We need a ceiling fan.” I said, “Wahhh…they are ugly…even if they are a new pretty design…it will distract from this amazing room. “She insisted… I relented. I sat with her for a few minutes and told her, “OH. We will just buy a plain blade fan and a round globe. Don’t worry, I’m going to come up with something.” She smiled and said, “I know whatever you do, it will be great! That is when Fan-Tastic Shade Clips came to life.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Obstacle have been finding the right company to produce my product. It’s been over four years in the making. From trying to have it produced in the US to no avail. To finding a trusted company in China to getting the funding needed. And all this during COVID.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Our goal is to revolutionize ceiling fans! This new product will ultimately have an impact on our use of energy consumption. More fans will be used because now they will be beautiful! Fan blades never change so you can keep your old fans and completely change its look with a fan-shade. Shades can be metal, paper, fabric, beaded, glass; you name it. A shade 13 inches or wider can become a fan-shade over an ugly white globe fixture. A shade 15 inches or wider can cover the ugly 3 or 4 can light fixture or an ugly bottom bowl fixture. If you find a lampshade, you love you can pretty up your fan. Cut the spider and use your own shade with our Fan-tastic Shade Clips https://youtu.be/P1_J4YzXaxw
What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
