Spotlights have the power to strategically illuminate a room. Whether you opt for directional spotlights on tracks the recessed variety or lighting mounted directly to the ceiling many options await you.
The Carronade lamp was designed by Swedish designer Markus Johansson for Le Klint a prominent Danish lighting manufacturer. Carronade (meaning a short large-calibre cannon) is a playful light whose shape resembles a small cannon.
For a sleek approach consider recessed spotlights which appear as brilliant circles in the ceiling rather than protruding lights. They are effective illuminators with an understated modern look.

Consider other elevated spaces such as the tops of bookshelves. This way your ceiling is unobstructed and as a bonus you can easily shine the light on the books or objets d’art of your choice!
