Where can I get an attractive, caged, hugger mount ceiling fan? Thanks!

In my vacation rental, I've put bunk beds in one of the secondary bedrooms, however, now I'm afraid that the existing "normal" ceiling fan could be a safety hazard if a kid reached out....or even just jumped up from the ground with hands up.

The ceiling in this room is only the standard 8', so I need a hugger style, but also one where the blades are "caged"....yes, there is such an animal, but hard to find!

I want something attractive, not noisy, as this is for a bedroom. The existing one is white.

I know I could just replace with a light-only fixture, but I really want a ceiling fan in there. :/

If you can't picture what I mean, here's a pic of one that isn't right for this room (it hangs down), but you can get an idea of what I mean.....the blades are smaller, but since they're caged, they can be faster to move more air.
