Industrial pendant lights got a modern makeover at the Las Vegas show courtesy of the Canadian design house Nuevo. Cast in acrylic, the firm’s clear fixtures had the luxe look of cut glass for the price of plastic. The lights run from $100 to $150 each, affordable enough for consumers to install multiples over a kitchen counter or cluster several at staggered heights to create a bolder statement. The shades also are available in glossy black and reflective chrome finishes. The lighting can be ordered through Blueprint, 8366 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 653-2439; www.blueprintfurniture.com.
