Charlotte Coote – Founder of Coote&Co. & Head Designer

Charlotte Coote is an interior designer, and a designer of furniture and lighting. Growing up and living in Europe & Australia, Charlotte was inspired by the beautiful design, interiors and pieces of furniture she was surrounded by.  For the duration of her 20’s she managed Coote&Co. the furniture and accessories company that complimented her late father John Coote’s international interior design business.  She also assisted him on numerous large scale private residential projects across England, Ireland and America.  It was here that she developed her passion for classic and contemporary design. Charlotte moved back to Melbourne in 2007 where she launched Coote&Co, opening a showroom in Armadale as well as developing an extensive private residential interior design business.  Charlotte is constantly building on her knowledge and style as a new classicist, through her extensive travel, research and referencing her growing collection of interior design publications. Coote&Co. has recently moved to a Prahran based interior design office to focus on their private residential client work.
