Steampunk Style

These rack and pinion-inspired double switch plates transform an ordinary device into the perfect flourish for your secret library, steampunk chalet--or wherever your imagination lives! The fabulous contraptions are 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. They're finished with brass hardware and laser engraved decoration inspired by the swirling lines of Victorian ornamentation. The switch installs easily in your bedroom, workshop or office--simply attach it over an existing, standard switch plate using the existing screws. Made in San Diego, California.

Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of jewelry design after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback, but they found a creative way to reinvent themselves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser-cut earrings. In addition to winsome wood accessories, the duo also creates brilliantly designed light switch plates, clocks, and other earthy and artful accents for the home.

        My son was intrigued by this gift. He is very difficult to buy for, and I thought he might get a kick out of this.

            Since this is a gift for someone else, I cannot comment on anything other than its appearance, which I think is terrific.

            This will be the lightswitch for our powder room. I think guests will enjoy this fun lightswitch plate. It should prove to be a conversation piece. I am so glad I found it on uncommongoods website.

              We loved the design of this switch plate, and when it was on our wall people noticed it and asked about it. But it seems every time we switched the light on or off a piece would pop off. My husband is handy so he fixed it several times, but after a while it got old having pieces pop off so we removed it from our light switch.
