Our good friends John and Juli Baker of Toronto based store Mjölk have just released their new web shop over the weekend. It’s been a place that I’ve checked on a weekly basis for a number of years but over the past few months there has been little to no movement from them online, this is partly because the’ve been renovating a house, I know this through their great personal blog Kitka, and also because of the new design of their online shop which I’m bringing to your attention today.
One thing that was slightly frustrating about the original website was the fact that they didn’t sell their beautiful selection of furniture that they hold in store. It’s one of those things where you know it exists in the physical store but we can’t see it showcased on their website, well now we can and it doesn’t disappoint!
I’m always fascinated by the little details and luckily Mjölk stocks some superb designers, highlights for me include Alvar Aalto (of course!), Jasper Morrison, Naoto Fukasawa and the legend that is Borge Mogensen. It’s pretty cool how they’re mixing up the photography as well, adding great little design led objects into the mix such as the ones seen below, the quirky wooden horse and candle stick holders are my favourite. I’m currently full of envy since spotting a Braun SK 4 record player by Dieter Rams in one of the photos, it’s great to see all these things that I admire in one place. I think our taste is very much alike in a lot of ways.
Overall this is a great place to shop if you’re looking for something unique and different, and now with the added gallery it makes for an exciting website to learn from and see develop. Above and below I’ve picked out some of my favourite furniture shots from their collection so if you’ve got a spare moment why not head that way and admire.
