The IONIAN kitchen tap

Introducing the ‘IONIAN’ kitchen tap from Perrin & Rowe.

Designed by:

A bridge style kitchen tap


About me:

The ‘Ionian’ kitchen tap from Perrin & Rowe has become a design icon, reflecting the principles of classical style: order, symmetry and balance. 

This bridge style tap has been designed to a scale that gives it a delicacy and understated elegance – a perfect focal point for classical interior design – which is why it is also specified for bathrooms and laundries. 

At the same time it has a commanding presence which matches it to the strength of an industrial kitchen and a linear form to divide an island between ‘prep’ and ‘dine’.

The ‘Ionian’ can be bench or wall mounted.  The selection of lever or crosshead handles and the finish of the tap will ensure the Ionian is complementary to any interior design. 

A pewter ‘Ionian’ will match stainless steel, chrome will enhance glossy surfaces and a nickel tap will reflect the warmth of a country scheme.  English bronze suggests the Mediterranean, gold imparts opulence and bare brass is ideal for an outdoor kitchen.
