Legrand Introduces Graphite for the Adorne Collection

Global industry leader expands line of designer switches and outlets with new colorway

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and network infrastructure solutions, today announces the launch of graphite, a striking black finish for the switches, dimmers and outlets in the adorne Collection. Graphite will debut nationally at the Lightovation: Dallas International Lighting Show from June 19-22, 2019 at the Dallas Market Center in Dallas, TX.

As a global industry leader of designer switches and outlets, Legrand developed graphite to meet the growing demand for black appliances, fixtures, and hardware in the home. The new graphite color features a rich, dark finish with metallic fleck to create depth.

"Our design team developed the graphite finish to provide architects, designers, and homeowners with more customization options for projects and home upgrades," says Adam Hayes, Senior Product Manager, Legrand. "The stylish hue complements any design scheme, from traditional, modern, contemporary and even industrial. We're looking forward to seeing the innovative ways our customers style this new offering."

The adorne collection's design leads with a distinguished square switch and outlet that serves as a signature statement for the product line. The square devices are now available in three finishes -- white, magnesium and graphite -- and can be paired with wall plates that come in over 45 striking finishes, including cast metals, natural woods, leather, and an array of vibrant hues. All switches and outlets fit flush within the wall plates, eliminating the need for visible screws. The wall plates and devices fit into existing electrical boxes for fast and easy installation. Signature products include the Pop-Out Outlet, motion-activated Wave Switch, Dual-USB Outlet, sofTap Dimmer Switch, GFCI Outlet and more.
