LOVE IS A SUBJECT WITH ENDLESS ALLURE PRECISELY BECAUSE IT CANNOT BE DEFINED. ITS MYSTERY LIES IN ITS POWER TO SEDUCE, ENTICE AND CAPTIVATE.
Love Happened over a simple sketch of a chair in a New York City Lounge over cocktails. As the grace of the pen took to the paper the desire to possess and create other pieces with the same empowerment became euphoric. KOKET is devotion to the seduction of the exquisite and to the provocation of love. Highly influenced by the decorative arts, fashion, flora and fauna, forms and decorative techniques from the glamorous eras reappear in the most sophisticated versions of contemporary trends. Koket brings empowering style to a highly edited unique collection of furniture, passing on a sense of entitlement, exclusivity and prestige.
JANET MORAIS | CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Born in New York, raised between Europe and the US, Janet's deep familiarity with the European culture and her multilingual command of four languages have uniquely positioned at the center of the rapidly evolving international luxury brand market. Passion for the decorative arts, romance languages, and design led her to move to Paris to study literature and design, later completing her university studies in Madrid and the US.
Founded in 2010, Janet's desire to create the brand KOKET stemmed from not only her dedication to design, but also the constant challenge of finding décor pieces that truly spoke to her during her 10+ years in the design world as owner of the interior design firm DeMorais & Associates, and President of the product editing and international brand representation company, DeMorais International. Noted for her impeccable taste, enticing personality and a strong love affair for life Janet developed a strong following which gave her the confidence to create the ultimate expression of her character KOKET.
The name KOKET comes from Janet's nickname "Janette la coquette", a name given to her for her playful ways. The brand is truly a personal reflection of who she is, what she belives in, where she has been, and where she will be is closely tied to her personal growth. With her dramatic design aesthetic, perfectionism, dead on instinct of trends to come and what people want, Janet's mission at KOKET is to inspire her designers to pursue their creativity to its maximum and to create highly desirable and empowering statement pieces.
