This company is a bit...
This company is a bit high-end, but their products are amazing. I'm a big fan of their toggle switches, but the push rotary ones are very nicely made -- and the invisible backplates are a great idea. We used these recently in an apartment in New York, but the company is based in the U.K.

take what you need. I like the most of them! and I personally would prefer small family based companies instead of the wide spread ones !
