Romance as business: Pierre, a Parisian, met Charlotte, an Australian, in Tokyo when they were teenagers. After living in Paris (where he played in a rock band and she worked in film), they moved to Melbourne and started their bespoke furniture company. The couple's influences range from Japan to Scandinavia and France; to see the full line, go to Pierre + Charlotte , or if you're in Melbourne, visit their showroom at 15 Purcell Street. Above: The Pye Dining Table features an oval top fixed to a pedestal base. Price available on request. Above: The Kokeshi Sideboard is made of American oak. Above: The M15 Lounge Chair has a removable cotton cover that comes in 48 colors.  Above: The Pacman Table Light is AU $440. Above: A view of the shop with the rectangular Pierre + Charlotte Butler's Coffee Table  in the center. Available in a range of finishes, it's shown here in bleached and limed oak. Above: The Pacman Pendant Light is AU $440. Above: On a trip to Japan, the couple met a master dyer in Kyoto who uses a natural fermentation process to dye cotton with indigo. Their indigo wall sconce (shown above) makes use of his fabric wrapped on a steel frame (it's also available in white linen). Above: The wall-mounted indigo sconce is AU $330.
