Electrical Hardware and Accessories
Meljac is a global leader in the market of luxury electrical hardware, with a catalog that includes various collections of lighting controls, outlet plates, lamps, and other bespoke creations. All Meljac products are designed, manufactured and hand-finished in France by a team of dedicated artisans across two factories in the Paris region.
In 1995 the idea started growing to invest in the niche market of luxury switches, where the offering is almost non existent. One year later the founder of Meljac, André Bousquet, created the first showroom in Paris. The first workshop followed in 1999 with a small team of interior designers and architects.
After a few years Meljac started to control all stages of the production and in 2010 André Bousquet built a factory to suit production requirements. Two years later the brass products became Origin France Guarantee certified.
2015, in recognition of their excellence in design and craftsmanship, and that all products are made in France , Meljac also received as first in its sector the “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant”, the mark of of French savoir-faire. They clearly deserve this with their particularly focus on the aesthetics of new models with varied and always refined styles that match all types of decoration perfectly. Meljac develops new products each year, working on materials, shapes, colors and aspects.
