We first opened our doors in 1977. Back then, we were a small gift shop amongst many other stores on Eastern Sydney's leafy Anzac Parade. But as word spread, the store grew, and we moved across the road into our current home, formerly an old cinema.
Now, more than thirty years on, Peter's of Kensington has become a Sydney institution.
Peter's of Kensington remains what it always has been – a family owned and operated, Australian company. In an age of chain stores, there's still only one Peter's of Kensington. It's a fact that makes us proud.
For decades, Peter's of Kensington remained Sydney's best-kept secret. In the year 2000, all that changed, with the launch of our website.
These days, thousands of people all over Australia visit our famous big pink building in Kensington without even leaving their homes. What makes us different? We stock all the biggest brands in homewares, kitchenware, dinnerware and more. For the table, there’s Royal Doulton, Wedgwood, Villeroy & Boch, Royal Albert; for the kitchen, KitchenAid, Nespresso, Scanpan, Le Creuset; and for the home, Lalique, Lladro and Ralph Lauren. And that’s just to name a few! When you shop at Peter's of Kensington, you can expect to find the brands you love at prices that will surprise you – for all the right reasons.
It doesn't matter whether you shop online or in-store; as a Peter's of Kensington customer, you mean the world to us. We pride ourselves on our customer service and attention to detail.
Whether you live in Sydney and you're preparing to visit us for the very first time, or you're browsing our site in your pyjamas – welcome to Peter's of Kensington!
