Forbes & Lomax - Designer Switches & Sockets since 1988
Forbes & Lomax have, from the start, been producing fashionable, aesthetically pleasing switches and sockets for over 25 years. In 1988 the elegant glass, nickel and brass switches were no longer available and the modern equivalents were ugly and unsuitable for projects that prestigious interior designers were working on at the time. It was with this problem in mind that Forbes & Lomax launched The Invisible Lightswitch – a simple, transparent acrylic plate allowing the wallpaper or paint to show through with a stylish metal toggle switch in the centre.
These switches and sockets were able to combine an attractive design with all the advantages of modern technology as well as safety features that are involved in the modern day switch or socket.
Over the years, Forbes & Lomax have added to the range producing a whole host of high quality switches, sockets and dimmers in a variety of different finishes (such as Antique Bronze, Brass, Silver Nickel, Stainless Steel, Invisible Lightswitch and Painted Socket) to suit the demands of both traditional and contemporary architects and interior designers as well as the electrical contractors that form the main backbone of their customer base.
Every range from Forbes & Lomax have a unique selling point, to allow you to find the perfect selection for your domestic or commercial property. Unlacquered Brass is designed to age over time (if left unpolished) which is perfect for period buildings which need that extra touch. The Stainless Steel finish appeal to the more modern home, at only 1.8mm thick they sit flush with the wall to suit any interior.
The Nickel Silver choice has a high polished nickel plate, creating a luxurious mirror finish, which is however much warmer and less clinical than chrome making it much more appealing for living areas. Lastly, the Antique Bronze finish provides a rich, warm hue making them attractive in both contemporary and traditional interiors – working particularly well on wood panelling and other unusual surroundings. It’s durable, and will stand the test of time.
