Clean Lines

Turn a simple light switch into an eye-catching work of mechanical art. Laser cut wood and intriguing gears blend classic Art Deco architecture with innovative steampunk design.

This fabulous contraption is the brainchild of Lance Nybye Jr.. He crafts the mechanisms from decorative plywood, often leaving the alternating colors of wood left exposed at the edges. The switch installs easily in your bedroom, hobby room or office—simply attach it over an existing, standard switch plate using the existing screws. Made in the USA.

Lance Nybye Jr.

While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, Lance Nybye Jr. and his father Lance Nybye Sr. had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser cut earrings. The product has come a long way from where it started and they are proud to offer not only earrings, but bracelets, pendants, switch plates, and clocks as well. collection

    Buying something special for my sweetheart is hard. Fortunately, the light switch hit the spot for he is such a bright spot in my day. I wasn't sure when I bought it, but it's quite unique and more the point, he loved it!

      Comments about ART DECO TOGGLE SWITCH:

      Rather than smoothly moving across the surface, the mechanism gets caught and does not function well as a light switch.

        It's too delicate for heavy use, but it's really neat. I already have the steampunk plate.

        Comments about ART DECO TOGGLE SWITCH:

        The product's main limitation might be that it only accommodates a single switch. Other than that, it looks great, has an eye-catching design and adds interest to the wall. It was easy to install over the existing wall plate even though previous customers mentioned having difficulty. It's necessary to measure the space above if pictures hang on the same wall. I wouldn't recommend this for a light switch that gets constant use...especially by children.

        Great Looking Switch!

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about ART DECO TOGGLE SWITCH:

        This is a great product (I bought all three) Sure beats the look of a plain white switch. But the original scres were just too short...longer ones were easy to find.

          This light switch plate is in my art deco bathroom. It looks fantastic and I get many positive comments on it. I find it to be ingeniously designed and functional; actually sturdy.

                        This is so cool as to be beyond superlatives! Bought it for a quest bedroom. Definitely am buying the steam punk version for my step son and his wife.
