A pendant light, sometimes called a drop or suspender, is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling usually suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Pendant lights are often used in multiples, hung in a straight line over kitchen countertops and dinette sets or sometimes in bathrooms. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials from metal to glass or concrete and plastic. Since pendant lights are typically smaller and placed in sets, it is important to follow general lighting rules to avoid creating poor lighting. An odd number of lights is preferable to an even amount. They should be placed high enough to allow an unobstructed view while either sitting or standing. Pendants should be placed 28-38 inches above a countertop, or 72 inches above the floor.
