Minimalism and paring down might be the mood of the moment, but designs by American label KOKET will make you rethink it all.
With a flair for the dramatic, and with statement-making pieces that command attention, KOKET stands out in the world of interior design. The brainchild of designer Janet Morais, KOKET‘s lavish presentations, risqué ad campaigns, and designs featuring exotic materials and impeccable craftsmanship has been a part of homes, films, top hotels across the world, and major international retail projects.
Just one look at KOKET’s designs and you’ll know why its repertoire is rife with such achievements. There is rich upholstery, exquisite lighting, and plush furniture featuring decadent furs, mineral medleys, luxe metallics, vibrant jewel tones, and exotic feathers. Choose from cabinets, dining tables, nightstands, chaises, day beds, chandeliers, floor lamps, and more. Their Divine Armoire is a stunning feathered piece, while the Camilia Cabinet flaunts a sideboard faced in mother-of-pearl with a hand-carved gold peacock flowing across it. The fact that master artisans and jewellers manufacture the pieces only add to their appeal.
“KOKET is for those who adore beauty, art, fashion, and craftsmanship. Those looking to make a statement in their homes,” says Morais. “With inspirations drawn from art deco, unique materials, and natural motifs, KOKET is often found in bold, refined, and modern spaces. In addition, while KOKET is for all genders, the brand is especially connected to women.”
The materials used are the highlight of the KOKET pieces. “Our most innovative is probably the natural feather wallpaper, available in a variety of patterns and tones,” says Morais. “In our designs, you will also find other materials, from agate stones and mother-of-pearl to metallic leaf finishes, coloured glass, antiqued mirror, marble and beyond.”
The new KK by Koket collection toes a similar line, which is part inspired by Morais’ fond memories of Portugal dos Pequenitos, a theme park in the Coimbra district of Portugal filled with diminutive versions of Portuguese houses and monuments. “Visiting this park as a child, walking its miniaturised streets, admiring the different architecture, I dreamt of one day having such a home,” says Morais. This aspirational feeling, coupled with Morais’ desire to share a fresh side of KOKET’s alluring style led to the creation of KK by KOKET.
