Modern spaces:

Modern houses focus on structural simplicity, order and functionality — monochromatic walls, basic materials and clean architectural lines are foundational.

In a modern house, lighting is a key structural element that accentuates planes and highlights focal points.

Lighting plays a vital role in modern interiors. Use recessed lighting to light a general area. Illuminate your special home objects, architectural detail, or food presentation areas with track or recessed lighting.
