Why We Love Raindrop Chandeliers
A symbol of modern elegance, raindrop chandeliers are the ideal fit for spaces you want to show off. They work well suspended over the kitchen island, in the grand entryway or in the living room, where they can be put on display. Chandeliers in this assortment also include crystals, giving them an exuberantly luxurious look and feel. And depending on the size or raindrop chandelier you need, you'll find large multi-tier options to more petite suspensions.
Where Raindrop Chandeliers Work Best
This style of modern chandelier is designed to be breathtaking, giving it reason to be installed in rooms where it can be put on display. Consider a large teardrop chandelier for the entryway or foyer. As soon as guests enter your home, they'll be met with the beauty one of these fixtures shows off. Kitchens also benefit from this type of lighting and you'll have no problem finding a home for a raindrop chandelier over the dining table - it can be the perfect conversation piece for family dinners, Thanksgiving and more. Smaller options, including single pendant chandeliers work well as a unique form of bedside lighting, or you may enjoy installing a few together over a bar or kitchen island.
Teardrop Chandelier Designs We Love
With so many designers of raindrop and teardrop shaped chandeliers, you have a lot of options to choose from. For the kitchen island, take a look at the Larmes collection from ET2 Lighting. These suspensions feature gigantic teardrops that will be sure to impress and they are available in a variety of sizes. For a simply stunning design you'll want for the grand entryway, look to the Lacrima Pendant Chandelier by Vistosi. Consider fixtures by Hubbardton Forge for designs that combine a rustic, wrought-iron frame with teardrop touches of light. Finally, if it's a single fixture you need for bedside lighting or just a small pop of design in a room, look to the wood veneer Raindrop LED Pendant by LZF.
How to Choose the Best Raindrop Chandelier
When choosing any type of chandelier, there are a few rules to abide by. First, you need to decide which room you will be hanging a new teardrop style chandelier. Knowing where you plan to install the fixture gives you an idea of the sizes you'll be selecting. Be mindful of common chandelier dimensions like height, width and hanging length, which is especially important for entryway lighting. Next, review the brightness output of the fixture to best understand just how much light it will provide. And look to the number of required bulbs to be best prepared when the fixture is installed.

Once you have decided on a raindrop chandelier, consider layering the light in any given room with a pair of table lamps, a floor lamp in the corner or a couple of sconces on the wall. These light fixtures will help you create a well-rounded amount of light and design. You'll also want to complement your lighting with equally stylish contemporary furniture.
