About Us

Established in 1987, Forbes & Lomax have always approached the electrical accessory market from an aesthetic point of view. The elegant glass, nickel and brass switches of the 1930s were no longer available and the modern equivalents were unsuitable for the prestigious projects that interior designers were working on at the time. It was with these problems 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 were able to combine an attractive design with all the advantages of modern technology. Over the years Forbes & Lomax have added to the range, producing high-quality switches, sockets and dimmers in a variety of finishes to suit the demands of both traditional and contemporary architects and interior designers.
