PROJECT:Little Avenue Des Italians, Melbourne


World renowned for its hidden arcades and laneways, Melbourne’s CBD is now home to a small piece of Europe. Little Avenue Les Italians at 428 Lt Bourke Street is also one of KWD’s cosiest new commercial projects.



The ultimate in cafe chic, Les Italians is fitted out in Lamborghini yellow and funky monochromes. The expresso bar represents the epitome of stylish Italian design.




The classic black and white tiles specified, sourced and supplied by KWD are glazed Italian tiles. Low maintenance and easy to clean, these tiles are practical yet ultra sophisticated and provide the instant wow factor. Subway tiles adorn the walls in several areas of the premises. The cafe owners were delighted with the finished look.



As you enter through the front door, patrons are overwhelmed by a feeling of comfort and warmth. Staff are friendly and professional. And a little birdie tells us the coffee and cakes are sublime! From Italian donuts to French pastries, there’s enough to satisfy any sweet tooth.



Little Avenue Des Italians Espresso Bar can be found at 428 Lt Bourke Street in Melbourne. They can be reached on 0478 136 407. Their website is: Follow them on Insta: @littleavenuedesitalians

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
