Now available in the US and Canada: elegant lighting controls from Forbes & Lomax, established in London 20 years ago ("from the start, we've approached the lighting controls market from an aesthetic point of view," they say). Forbes & Lomas specializes in switches, sockets, and dimmers with a 1930s look but featuring modern technology. The company offers toggle switches, push buttons, rotary dimmers, and outlets; all are available in several sizes and in a selection of plate finishes (the signature Invisible Switch plates feature beveled transparent acrylic plates which are secured without the use of any fixing screws and are ideal for wallpapered surfaces). Go to Forbes & Lomax for more information; the products can also be viewed at Claremont Furnishing in New York and Los Angeles.
