Alessi Handheld Vacuum

The Alessi Handheld Vacuum ($180) is a rechargeable vac that should be left out on display instead of hidden in the back of your utility closet. Design by Stefano Giovannoni, this stylish vacuum features a sleek stainless steel and thermoplastic resin exterior, and an included crevice tool for cleaning in tight places, a wet nozzle and a contoured charging station.
