Mjolk through the eyes of Cereal

February 27th, 2014

We were  thrilled to find out Cereal was interested in profiling us in their features section on their website. Of course they are known for their beautiful publication, writing and romantic photography. We were really interesting to see our store through their lens.

Of course they did not disappoint. Photographer Titus Chan did a fantastic job capturing the mood of the store, and John Connell asked me some really thought provoking questions. I think our interview went well beyond what he needed to get.

Please read the article and see the photographs here

A little more living

February 24th, 2014

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Monday is our day off so today was pretty relaxed, with brunch at Luna, a visit with Sali Tabacchi, coffee at Full Stop and some grocery shopping. Since the dwell article a few things in our home have changed so we thought we would give you a little update.

The first little thing is our tiny little Peace Lily in an Arabia Finland planter, along with the Luca Nichetto Timeline bowl and copper Zoo table by Claesson Koivisto Rune. We also sell the TMM floor lamp by Spanish designer Miguel Mila, we always have his designs on display at Mjölk.

Available at Mjölk but not on the webstore yet: Luca Nichetto Timeline bowl and TMM floor lamp in white oak, beech, walnut or wenge. Please enquire here.

Underneath this little side table is our new (old) mid-century Swedish carpet by Judith Johansson. She is one of our favourite rug designers, you might recognize her work from the red and blue carpet we have at our cottage.

When we first moved in we didn’t have any rugs on the floor at all, and in the beginning it was really nice and minimalistic. However, as we grew into our home we starting craving the warmth you get from incorporating textiles. They are also so nice underfoot and remarkably cut down on sound.

The untreated vegetable tanned leather on our 2213 sofa is about 2 years old, and wearing beautifully. Eventually it will be a cognac brown.

You might be wondering where our old Berber rug moved to. We found a great place for it in our bay window underneath the Conoid bench. The two carpets play off each other really well. We’ve always loved textiles but incorporating different styles in the same room can be challenging. That’s why we really took our time waiting for the perfect rug to tie everything together.

All of the subdued fall colours are really nice. Funny enough, when we bought the rug via an online auction, the colours in the photograph were more blue, pink and orange, so we were really disappointed when this colourway showed up. Thankfully because of all the white oak and natural leather it works and it ended up being a win!

Sunday night we just got back from a really nice trip to Oslo and Stockholm, the main  excuse of the trip was Stockholm design week which we participated in by hosting a reception at Gaston Vinbar to debut Sucabaruca in Europe.

Gaston Vinbar is designed by famous Swedish designer Thomas Sandell, and features one of the best collections or wine in Sweden. It also has some incredible food on hand – we had the fish and chips and mac n’ cheese, both were fantastic.
