The current obsessions of Mjölk’s husband-and-wife team

The current obsessions of Mjölk’s husband-and-wife team

John Baker and Juli Daoust first opened their beloved homewares and furniture shop in the Junction a decade ago. Their mercantile philosophy is to only sell items they would happily bring into their own home. As a result, Mjölk stocks wildly contrasting pieces—from antique Korean moon jar vases to ultra-modern candy-coloured Swedish pendant lamps. The expertly curated mix makes stopping in feel as much like visiting an art gallery as a decor store, with the possibility of snagging something as cozy as it is beautiful.
