As a designer, I am always searching for very unique products, made by talented designers and makers, to bring that special touch to my clients’ homes.
I recently came across a great source for amazing products including furniture, gadgets, accents, lighting and tableware called Milkster.
Milkster’s slogan is “We love Amazing Products” and if you browse their website, you’ll know they are not kidding.
Milkster provides a new way for amazing design to be discovered, purchased and distributed. Think of it as that magical place where you can find items of exceptionally well-crafted design created just for you by professional artisans. They hand-pick, review and highlight well-designed and frankly delightful furniture, and hardware from independent designers and makers, featuring a new selection every other day. When you choose a product on Milkster, your order is forwarded to the maker of that product who then manages its production in their workshop. By supporting such a maker, you will be involved from creation to delivery, and you’ll get a product with a story – a story that you’ll be a part of.
How cool is that? Having products in your home that are uniquely yours.
There is so much to discover and love, but I managed to pick out just a few of my favorite pieces.
Knotted Lamp Small by Studio Annebet Philips
This soft flexible lamp is made out of stuffed knitted fabric. It is possible to tie the lamp in various ways which allows the user to (re)shape the lamp as he or she likes. The lamp can be hung up or can lie down. The lamp uses LED light. LED light bulbs do not heat up like regular light bulbs do and therefore it is possible for the lamp to be made out of knitted fabric. The lamp can be hung up by using the little hook that is connected to the wire. It is also possible to connect the lamp to an electrical outlet in the ceiling.

The Knot Lamps come in two different designs of hand blown glass shade each supported by a monkey fist knot. The knots are tied from brightly coloured cable.

Grand Dining Table by Paul Kruger
The Grand Dining room table offers the most commanding statement of all their pieces. The concave base was designed to allow for extended leg room under the table while adding strong support. This piece features signature “concave dutchmen joints” all along the middle where a crack was in the wood. The joints stop the cracks from growing and offer an attractive alternative to the classic butterfly shape. Click here to learn about artisan and to purchase
