Recessed Pinlights

Pinlights are small light fixtures that are embedded into a void in the ceiling. Because they do not jut out, they are perfect for modern houses, such as this one designed by John Yuyucheng. They can brighten dark corners and even light up whole rooms—just make sure to space them out evenly.

Track Lights

Highlighting artwork is easier with track or directional lights. Each light can be repositioned to point wherever you desire, and they are perfect for hallways and walls filled with artwork or photographs. Ron Gonzalez focused track lights on this abstract in a hallway.
