I think I really like the Kruz the best. We are getting laminate flooring 3 rooms in a couple of weeks so I think this might really be useful in helping keep them swept up. Hopefully, it would work really well on cat hair also because I have 2 cats that shed a lot!

Small appliances have come a long way. Dirt Devil's designer series, for example, features incredibly useful vacuum cleaners housed in haute couture plastic fashions by the ubiquitous designer Karim Rashid. (Is there anything this guy doesn't design?!) I never thought I would ever call a hand vac sexy, but you know, never say never…
The KURV, a rechargeable, cordless hand held vacuum cleaner that looks more like a genie's bottle than a functional appliance. It is, indeed, curvy as the name implies but it has a very narrow nozzle that is particularly useful for sucking up little things from nooks and crannies. KURV, like its conical cousin the KONE hand vacuum, is meant to be left out in plain view. They are funky objets d'art and ostensibly having them out makes you more likely to use them, which I found to be true.
Dirt Devil's designer recasting of stick vacuums is the KRUZ. It's a nifty, lightweight solution for homes with hard flooring. It sucks up dirt and the detritus of toddler mealtimes pretty handily from our tile floor with its 12 V motor. And it is awfully sexy for a vacuum cleaner! (Am I blushing?) I have the champagne color and it goes with everything… like Cheerios and cat kibble.
One model that I haven't tried is the brand new broom vac, with the slightly predictable moniker BRUM. It's a 9.6 Volt Rechargeable Broom vac that sucks and sweeps simultaneously. Genius! I am crushing on the Choco-Latte color, although it is available in the sublime champagne, as well. I think this would be especially great for hardwood and also for cat hair on low-pile carpets like our Flor rugs. The swirl motif on the broom head is actually the removable dust tray! Very cool.
