Milkcart creates handmade furniture influenced by mid century Danish style, and finished with a definite modern signature.
Designed and constructed by a team of two, each item is carefully drafted, handcrafted and finished in a Sydney workshop, with as little impact made to the environment as possible.
The Milkcart team prides itself on furniture which features clean lines highlighted by carefully chosen timbers and the simplicity of the beautiful, yet functional designs. The materials are hardwearing, yet gentle on the environment, and easy on the eye.
The practical nature of their form allows them to be used in any room of the house - sideboards can be used as toy chests, writing desks as hall stands, bedsides as occasional tables - this accompanied with the scope to customise an item to your specs, means that the options are endless.
There is a place in your home for one of them!

Where do you get your inspiration?
"We are inspired by the beauty and lines of Danish furniture, and the light filled interiors of Australian homes."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"Our favourite piece has been the Skinny Dolly hall stand. By creating the Skinny Dolly, we not only found the solution to our narrow hallway, we felt we created the perfect piece to build a collection around - and it continues to be one of our most popular items."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"We prefer to use sustainable and low impact materials in our furniture, choosing locally sourced timbers where possible, and finishing with environmentally friendly waxes and sealers."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"If we were looking to expand our product range, we would delve further into the home as we have an addiction to linens and ceramics."
Describe your products in three words...
"Handcrafted. Minimalist. Edgy."
