Light switches are pretty plane jane.  The are just plastic flip switches that pretty much every home has. Personally I like the thick flat toggles.  Those of you that just have to be different now have an option.  The look is like a steampunk, retro mechanical switch.  They come in a variety of different styles and colors and are available from a an online store called Buster and Punch.  They sell all kinds of weird fixtures and things.  Check out the video of their Hero light.  I think If I had that hanging in my house I would never get a date again.
