These Swedish air purifiers are the most stylish ones we've found yet. They're also quiet, and they don't release harmful ozone emissions. These don't have a HEPA filter, so we don't recommend them for people with allergies, pets, or homes that need heavy air cleaning. They are efficient, however, and work well for people who want some light air cleaning but don't want a bulky, ugly contraption.
LightAir makes their air purifiers in three styles: a floor model, a tabletop version, and a ceiling hung style that looks like a pendant lamp. The filter works by using an IonFlow system, which "releases negative ions that attach to the positively charged pollution particles in the air, such as dust, pollen allergens, smoke, car fumes, pat dander, bacteria, mold, etc." You can read more about the process on their site. As the filter collects these particles all day long, it requires weekly cleaning.
LightAir has a US website, where they sell air purifiers directly to customers for $350 to $500. You can also purchase their products through Amazon and other online retailers.
