Can these ceiling lights be used in a low ceiling without a soffitt? - My living room ceiling is quite low which precludes installing encased downlights. What system is used here? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cate West Zahl added this to How to Layer Comfort Into Urban Spaces
This interior is basically mid-century modern, yet the striped upholstered chair, round mirror and traditional rug add more layers. The brass reading lamp and dark wood tables add an Americana feel to the otherwise Scandinavian digs.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Try Some Stripes on Your Chairs
The cozy chair in the corner is upholstered with a stripe fabric that runs vertically on the chair. The wider stripe pattern feels more modern on this chair.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Comfort and Elegance in Manhattan
Next to the kitchen, Mellett set up a casual family area with access to the exterior. Browns and grays were accented with purples and greens, all in tones that play off of the beautiful limestone floors. Rug: Nettle and wool area rug from OgeeSofa: Splayed leg custom sofa by Jarlath MellettCoffee table: AntiqueChair: KnollSide tables: vintage Nakashima nesting tablesCaptain's Mirror: BDDWLamp: Nessen Swing Arm Lamp from Assemblage
Shawn Gauthier added this to Show More Leg for an Airy Aesthetic
By some standards, this living room may be considered on the smaller side. However, that feeling is avoided entirely by contemporary furniture with exposed legs. Notice how the armchair’s design is reflective of a typical sturdy build, yet when juxtaposed with the thin legs of the tables and couch, it feels balanced instead of bulky.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 5 Comfy Decorating Styles That Say 'Welcome!'
Although this room is also spare and uncluttered, it conjures warmth because of the cottage-style striped fabric on the easy chair and the layered pillows and throw on the sofa. Notice the impact of that one brightly colored graphic pillow!
