Parallel Cord

Parallel Cord is a flat cord, consisting of cloth-covered SPT-1, also called zip-cord. (Even if it looks round in the photographs, it is NOT ROUND.)  It is suitable for table and floor lamps, but less pleasing on pendant or hanging lights due to the fact that it is flat. This wire is UL-listed.

Knob & Tube Wire and Supplies

Knob & tube wire is a reproduction of wire used for house wiring from the 1880s to the 1930s. The wire is called "knob and tube" because it was run through porcelain wire clamps, called knobs, to hold it to the wall and tubes to run it through beams.
