About Us

Artedomus is Australia’s leading supplier of unique, high quality stone, tiles, architectural surfaces, bathware and furniture for commercial and residential architectural projects.

Founded in 1985 as Domus Ceramics, the company was built to import exclusive Italian floor and wall finishes to Australia with a focus on sourcing unique products that have a simple and natural intrinsic beauty; shunning short-term fashions and trends. With this philosophy and resulting outstanding product offering, Domus soon became a source of reference and inspiration for leading architects and designers.

We have been searching for, and sourcing, unique stones, tiles, architectural surfaces and products from around the world and introducing them to Australia for close to 30 years. Some of the most beautiful and widely recognised marbles, limestones and sandstones in the design market today including Isernia, Bedonia and Elba have been favoured by leading architects and designers for their depth of colour, unique markings and distinctive natural qualities, all originally identified by Artedomus. With passion and expert understanding, we appreciate the power a unique natural product has to transform any design project into a singular work of art.

Now with showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, Artedomus continues to bring beautiful, unique interior and exterior finishes to the Australian market. We are also the exclusive supplier of the innovative INAX range of tiles and architectural ceramics from Japan, the iconic Agape Italy bathware range and more recently the Mangiarotti designed Agapecasa furniture range.

Our people are as important as our products, and just as unique. Our highly experienced team is here to make sure you find exactly what you’re looking for. They are passionate about design and love nothing more than finding the right solution for your project. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.

Phil Brenton MD white.jpg

Phil Brenton

Managing Director

Phil was born on a farm in Kansas, NZ, and grew up dreaming of being a fireman or a rodeo clown. As he developed into manhood he realised his physique was better suited to selling tiles and stone, so he set his dreams aside, hopped on his tractor and drove into Sydney to seek his fortune. Along the way he got a degree and met an ingenious, passionate Sicilian, who took advantage of his innocence and offered him a job in his stone & tile showroom, paying him only in tagliatelle and red wine. After years of wild success and mosaics, the Sicilian handed Phil the keys to the Artedomus family wagon, which he proceeded to drive down the road of time until we have got where we are today. Phil likes cheese, combat Frisbee and living under bridges.

Thomas is the creative. He oversees how Artedomus is seen. An international award winning designer of products and interiors, Thomas is a creative strategist, who works across every facet from our showroom designs and event curation to bespoke products. He likes working with Artedomus because, essentially, he says, we like the same things: namely beautiful bathroom furniture and stunning stone.

Sally Martin

Senior Sales Sydney

Sally loves to help find solutions to designers’ design dilemmas. It makes her happy. She came to Artedomus in 2007 with an impressive amount of industry experience under her stylish belt, intrigued by founder Angelo Schepis’s Italian passion for design, beautiful products and his completely unique way of doing things. She has been with Artedomus since (“Oh my God that’s a LONG time”) and continues to keep the Sydney showroom (and its clients) up to date with her discerning eye and excellent product knowledge.

Yas is our resident Persian – American – Canadian engineer. Born in Toronto and raised in Los Angeles she is the youngest of 6 children, so she knows how to make herself heard. Graduating from USC as a Civil Engineer with emphasis in Building Science (Architecture) means she loves solving problems and anything to do with architecture and design. Likes: espresso, Nutella, Game of Thrones and Hello Kitty. Dislikes blue cheese, rude people and Crocs.

At Artedomus, we all love stone but Matt LOVES stone. He likes to talk technical and can tell you anything you need to know about our incredible natural products. A Sydney boy through and through, Matt has been a part of the local industry for many years building up a wealth of experience and knowledge: working his way up to Artedomus state manager where he has developed an enviable reputation. It is also worth mentioning that he is possibly one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

William Pearse VIC white.jpg

William Pearse

Melbourne Sales Manager

William is our font of knowledge in regard to all things Agape and INAX Japan (where he is affectionately known as “Willie-San”). He’s an enigma with a wicked sense of humour and has a background in design (and banana picking – post uni). He’s extremely discerning, his design knowledge is deep and he is all about unique architectural products that stand the test of time. He also likes to look at instagram on his computer, not his mobile phone.
He often finds the complexity in simple things, but don’t let that put you off calling him. He is amazing at what he does.

William Stransky

Perth Sales Manager

William is a Perth native and Artedomus’ official Renaissance Man. After majoring in Japanese at UWA, he worked in a number of construction, education, service and marble factory roles before settling in Japan. Returning to Perth he came back to the natural stone industry and brings to his position at Artedomus a keen sense of design, balance and refinement fanned by his understanding of the Japanese artistic and cultural aesthetic. An experienced artist in his own right, his vast work experience, widespread socio-economic interaction and Italian heritage makes him passionate about his work, his art, your needs, your projects (and life, generally).

DUANE.jpg

Duane Canelas

SENIOR SALES SYDNEY

Duane (not Wayne), despite being born to Portuguese parents, is a true Aussie and has lived in Sydney all his life. He has been working at Artedomus for as long as Yoda has been part of the force. He has completed various roles; in the warehouse, project and manufacturing supervision, and sales. What Duane doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing! His knowledge, along with industry and company experience makes him a true asset to the business.
He is known for his witty sense of humour, which gives him the name of Artedomus’ Comedian.
Things you might not know about Duane; he has an identical twin brother, is a big foodie, avid golfer and met his wife at Artedomus.
