Feet first: slippers that double as art
Mjölk has been open only a few months, but the Scandinavian lifestyle shop is already on every Toronto design nerd’s list of favourite decor stores. For the uninitiated, here’s another reason to visit: ultra-comfy slippers from Sweden’s Pia Wallén, a brand-name designer and artist in her home country who works largely with felted wool. Available in several bright colours, the unisex slippers are inspired by winter boot liners and are one of Wallén’s best-known creations. They’re just the thing for keeping feet warm on polished concrete floors.
$75 at Mjölk, 2959 Dundas St. W., 416-551-9853, mjolk.ca.
