Importer in Focus:The English Tapware Company

One of the hardest decisions we make here at KWD when designing our clients bathrooms or kitchens is what tapware to specify, and the extensive range of beautiful kitchen taps, bathroom taps, bathroomware and bathroom accessories at The English Tapware Company only make these decisions even more challenging.


Their collection encompasses the finest products by design and quality, a level at which is unsurpassed in the Australian market. Their exclusive products are imported from the finest designers and craftsmen in the industry, including the likes of Perrin & Rowe, Hawthorn Hill, Acquello, Victoria + Albert, Frank Allart, Armac Martin and David Moreland.


Furthermore, their new showroom in Armadale Melbourne is a must see. This new space is a testament to The English Tapware Company’s love for refinement and detailing in design. The new showroom is the result of a collaboration between Hecker Guthrie’s Hamish Guthrie and their own director Stephan Marshall.  Utilising some of KWD’s favoured hard finishes in the showroom, like European Oak Engineered flooring, and an abundance of Carrara Marble, we are right at home here.  The result is superb.



All in all, when it comes to the gruelling decision of what tapware to choose for your kitchen or bathroom, The English Tapware Company is always a KWD staple. Our current favourite is their nickel finish; it is fresh and current yet still true to classic design.

At KWD we look at a project holistically. The sum of all the parts make the whole story work, and it’s this unique approach that sets us apart. The KWD experience provides a streamlined process. We specify, source and supply all hard finishes as well as carpets, rugs, custom furniture and soft furnishings, and manage the procurement, warehousing, freight and quality so every project is worry free. We work closely with interior designers, architects, developers and home-owners, selecting the ideal flooring, designing the perfect joinery and choosing the right paint colours for a wide range of design aesthetics. From finding the perfect paving stones and pool tiles to offering landscaping advice, KWD manages the whole design process. One contact, one invoice and staged deliveries ensure peace of mind. KWD's extensive global network of manufacturers, importers, agents and local wholesalers ensures the selected products are always available. Key supply partners are chosen for their ability to fulfil each project requirement, while our contract negotiation skills will always provide the most outstanding pricing. We often engage architects, draftsmen, lighting designers and builders to complete the design process. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
