Why – oh WHY – would you spend time & money picking out the perfect sleek & modern furniture for your home and STILL have light switches that look like THIS??!
It’s a little like getting a slinky new dress and an up-to-date hair-do – then wearing those with your old sneakers. Not very sophisticated.
If you are going for simplicity of design in your furnishings, then carrying that theme through on everything else in your home will add to the harmonious feel. Details matter! When you are putting in your lighting – don’t forget the switches and dimmers. Light switches are something that you look at and touch every single day. Here are my very favorite contemporary and minimal light switches. They are made by Basalte and called Sentido. Left to right they are gray, brushed aluminum and bronze. Click on the gray one to see a short video of one of these being operated. Very slick!
In checking out their website I came across a great quote:
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci
It fits their product perfectly! They blend seamlessly with modern, minimal interiors. Just the way I like it!
