Canadiana: Mjolk

During the Thanksgiving weekend I had the chance to finally make my way to Mjolk, a gorgeous Scandinavian design store in Toronto. It was also a treat to meet John and Juli, the two fantastic folks behind Mjolk.

(I mentioned last week in my post on Harvesting Birch Bark that I was inspired by a birch bark installation at their store. It's in the front window on the wall above the couch, can you see it? Don't you love it?!)

John and Juli did an amazing job converting what was an architectural firm into a welcoming and warm space to display their wares. Besides a large selection of pieces from Scandinavia and Iceland, they also stock some lovely Japanese products. It's always been interesting to me how similar Japanese and Scandinavian style is, I mentioned it to John and he had some interesting things to say on the subject. You can tell just by being in the store that John and Juli really know what they are talking about. They have exceptional taste and a very discerning eye.

I highly recommend a visit if you're in the Toronto area, it's really not to be missed. For more photos you can check out my flickr page, there's even one of Juli with a mustache!!

Have a great Tuesday!
