WOODEN FILÉ CANOPY OR A PLUG?

Decide if you want to use the wooden Filé canopy and connect to your junction box or use a string light plug to plug into your wall outlet. Either way, the system can be used on ceilings, walls or both simultaneously, to put light wherever you want it.

WHAT’S YOUR CABLE COLOR?

Our Filè system is compatible with all of our string light cables. So you have plenty of color options when it comes to the cable. This is where you’re going to set the tone for your piece. Is it bold red, or more of a subdued jute choice? We’re sure you’ll find the perfect color cord though.

HOW MANY SOCKETS?

Choose how many wooden Filé light sockets you need. Filè light sockets don't need to be wired up: they are designed to “bite” the cable at the exact spot you need that light allowing you to light your room your way. This makes them SUPER EASY TO INSTALL. The wooden sockets are perfect with bare bulbs while the sockets with ferrules allow you to add a lampshade for a unique touch.

NEED A FAIRLEAD?

Add some extra stability to the Filè system by using fairleads. These aren’t required though since you can just use a Filé light socket instead of you wish. But installing these at curves and angles, between sockets, allows the cable to stretch and twist however you want it to.
