Forbes and Lomax nickel silver plate, flat plate switches, sockets, dimmers

Continuing the series of introducing the Forbes and Lomax range, today we will focus on the flat plate nickel silver finish: switches, sockets, and dimmers. The Forbes & Lomax Nickel Silver range has a highly polished nickel plated plate, creating a mirror finish. The Nickel Silver finish first became popular in the 19th century due to its similarity to Sterling Silver, and was commonly used for various decorative items around the home.

This finish has a luxurious appearance which is much warmer and less clinical than chrome, making it more appealing for living areas. The Nickel Silver range sits well in both traditional and contemporary interiors. Read more about the formats, the features and the models of the Forbes&Lomax Nickel Silver finish.
