I’m so excited to be introducing this new store! Not just because it’s a very cool store but also because John Baker and Juli Daoust get it.
They get how necessary it is to bring good design to this city and they have a direct line to the target audience that wants and understands it because they are their audience.
John and Juli’s passion for clean, simple, functional design grew out of their many visits to Scandinavia and Japan. Mjolk (pronounced mi-yelk) opened just 7 months ago, when they commissioned Studio Junction to design the retail space. Simply gorgeous! And although John and Juli feel they are still in the growing stages, I beg to differ. They carry a complete and full product mix ranging from tableware, kitchen accessories, furniture, carpets, lighting and even a great selection of children’s toys and accessories. See for yourself:
Stand Umbrella (very clever) – SIWA Tote and Brief Case
Crow Bottle Opener, Shoe Horn
Eden coat rack, magnet board and magazine rack
Combitoy: Theodore transforms into 4 toys.
What makes Mjolk truly unique is the fact that John and Juli have handpicked theses designers and brought them to our market. You will not find them anywhere else in Canada. And they want their customers to have the same unique connection. They are planning a series of Q & A seminars with the designers in the near future. So get on their mailing list!
Visit them in the Junction on Dundas St. just west of Keele St. at 2959 Dundas St. W. See the map here.
