here’s a blurb about them on their Mjölk site:
Mjölk (Milk) is pure, honest, and essential.
Mjölk is a lifestyle store; we look to our everyday life to find inspiration for the products we carry. Our smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired. In our eyes just the simple satisfaction of functionality and durability, is all you need for a successful product, but when you can derive beauty from the uttermost simplistic tools, then you have something special.
We specialize in Scandinavia because the north enthralls us. Soft, quiet snowy forests and streets in the winter. Glittery, blinding sunlight on colourful buildings during the summer. Fika (coffee break) at the Konditori, with a kaffe and Napoleon pastry in hand. Trolling the Helsinki open-air markets for treasures. Stalking Arne Jacobsen at the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel. Shopping at Illums Bolighus. S.O.S. (Smör Ost och Sill = butter, cheese and herring). Swedish style. Grass roofs. Hot dog streetside snacks. And of course, the Arctic. These are a few of our favourite things.
Mjölk is curated by owners john baker and juli daoust, who just got married this january (congratulations john and juli!). i dream of being surrounded with the beautiful pieces they’ve found! good design makes daily living simpler and enjoyable. i can’t wait to visit their shop the next time we’re in toronto!
