Hot Shopping: Nordic Combined

Scandinavian style has steadily been gaining influence over the Canadian aesthetic in everything from clothing to furniture. Fortunately, no one seems to be resisting. Junction-area boutique Mjölk appeals to this movement with goods from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, as well as a smattering of minimalist items from Japan. Shelve those thoughts of IKEA though—John Baker and Juli Daoust’s streamlined space offers anything but mass-produced wares assembled with a hex key. Housed in a Victorian-era building, their long, narrow space with a birch bark accent wall showcases ceramics, textiles, books, art, lamps and furniture that exude functional sophistication alongside uniquely quirky finds such as sheepskin-covered rocking sheep and wooden children’s toys.
