Anyone have a recommendation for an effective oscillating space heater tower in a modern, attractive style?

I have one of these, and it's excellent:

It's not very tall, but it doesn't need to be.

They also make this size that may be closer to what you are wanting:

If you want lots of heat right now you can't beat the old Dearborn gas space heaters. They're only for those with sufficient sense not to gas themselves or blow the house up, though.

Your title asks for best space heater...
then you go about defining what you seem to think is best; a specific type.
So... How many "oscillating space heater tower" choices are there?

Don't be fooled by appearances. Space heaters are mostly the same regardless of physical size...

I didn't either... you seem to know about them so I wondered.

As for me... I'll stick with the $15 model (1500watt with fan) at Wally's.
One I used a LOT when I was between furnaces and found it great so I bought another.

The only difference in electric space heaters is how they deliver the heat.

Fan blown heat will heat a room up faster than radiated heat, but ti will also be draftier and have a longer recharge time. It can also irritate your sinuses if the fans is powerful.

If you need more heat than an electric heater can produce then the old Kerosun kerosene heaters works great and are safe and odorless if used properly. For big heat needs get a torpedo heater. Those need some way to discharge fumes however. They also have to be carefully adjusted to ensure they burn clean. Various propane and natural gas heaters can also put out more heat than electric, sometimes at a lower cost.

I have one of these in each of our bedrooms, it is fantastic for the price. Also the target website price is $10 less than the instore price so make sure you show them at checkout.
