How would you describe your style?

"Focus SB offers one of the widest-ranging and highest quality finishes portfolios in the UK. Our finishes enhance superior products with trimless design featuring crisp edges and clean lines, offering more metal plate with less plastic trim. We offer electrophoretic lacquering of polished brass plates providing durability and a hard wearing finish, ensuring our products keep their appearance over time, and are one of the only UK manufacturers able to match rocker and toggle switches to plate finishes."
