Milk Studios is a Swedish speciality products retailer. Their headquarters are in Älmhult, Sweden. Milk Studios has 12 locations in Sweden, two in Norway, and three in the United States.

Milk Studios was founded in 1987 by Alex Hammer, and originally carried a variety of specialty products made by various Swedish product designers at their Älmhult retail locations. In 1993, Milk Studios dropped that product line, and began to carry their own exclusive line of cards, paper, calendars, office supplies, books, drafting tools, and clothing designed by the company in Älmhult.

In 1998, Milk Studios began online sales and expanded their sales outlets to several American and European chain stores, including IKEA, Merona, Museum of Design-Stockholm, and others. In 2004 they acquired the Dairy Farm, a large, American specialty retailer and opened an office location in Tiburon, California.
