Get swept off your feet.

For 60 years, Andrée Jardin has been making beautiful wood brushes in Brittany, France. Jardin’s husband, George-René Julio, was an apprentice to a brush-maker in Nantes and with his know-how, the pair opened up their factory in 1947. We love that they’ve maintained their traditional beauty while incorporating modern, whimsical design touches.

For spot cleans and little spills, a hand-held dustpan will do you just fine. But for sweeping up larger spaces? Get a standing dustpan set like this one and pat yourself on the back (a very grateful back). It's a slim and 35" tall tool that looks like it could’ve been nicked from a French New Wave film set (we won’t judge if you find yourself breaking into a song-and-dance number—brooms make excellent faux-microphones).
