I recently bought a copper Hibiki cup rain gutter chain for my front porch and just love the way it all came together. A few weeks back I had some minor work done in my front yard, a small scale project to make it come alive, I had placed some stepping stones in an area that led to a corner full of plants and assorted flowers. I mostly had my landscaper plant some nice looking green exotic plants and to top it off he added rocks to give it a finishing touch. It hadn’t occurred to me how a rain chain would make it appear even more beautiful until I saw some on a website as I was doing some online shopping. I wasn’t sure how the installation process would work or if my gutters would accommodate a rain chain. After doing some research, I saw some rain chains I liked on a website. I called the folks at www. and spoke to a gentleman who answered questions I had. I wanted to make sure so it was important for me to talk to someone over the phone who actually deal with rain chains and who was in the business. I felt much more reassured after speaking to him and confidently placed my order over the phone. The man was patient and knew had a great deal of knowledge about the product and installation. That’s exactly what I needed. When my rain chain arrived I was really excited. It looks even more beautiful in person and is made of pure copper – not the plated variety some sites sell and it came with a gutter clip for installation and detailed instructions. I was impatient and couldn’t wait to get it installed. It’s been one week since it’s been up and can’t stop looking at it. I always look forward to pulling up my garage and getting a glance of it as I pull up. It brings a smile to my face. Thanks for a great product!

I just bought a few rain chains for my house as it is undergoing some construction especially the outdoor section of the home. I love to have friends and guests come over and having done this a long time, it was time to do some exterior work on the home. What started out as just a plan to fix faulty or worn out systems and appliances around the home slowly started progressing as a design concept. Since then, I’ve been looking for ideas to make the exterior look great and original. I have since added wood work as part of the outdoor entrance area. I got the idea of adding a rain chain when I saw a photo of one as I was browsing through a look book of outdoor design ideas. I love the contrast of the wood with the copper of the rain chain. I began looking through website excitedly for rain chains designs that I could add around the wooden deck area. I saw the traditional link rain chain and felt it was the perfect match for my outdoor deck area. It is a simple design but that’s exactly what I was looking for. I’m incorporating a lot of natural elements and design concepts that conform closely to nature with a contemporary feel. The traditional link is definitely the contemporary vibe I wanted to incorporate. An added bonus was adding lighting around the area where I have the rain chain so that even during the night hours, the rain chain can still be visibly seen, making it a focal point and therefore not lose its design appeal at dark. The rain chain hangs over an area I designated as being part of a rock bed with beautiful green yucca plants. The area looks awesome and can’t wait for my family and friends to see it at my next gathering. Charlene White Spokane, WA
