Welcome to the KOKET Press Office

KOKET Unveils a Brand-New Exotic Pair of Feather Wallcoverings
KOKET is adding two seductive new patterns to its decadent collection of feathered wallcoverings. Tartan Faucon and Misty Guinea are the names chosen to the new designs incorporating the brand’s textiles collection. A new kind of exotic flair with gold undertones and brown accents is added to a collection that, now, includes a dozen of sensuous option to choose from. Composed of natural feathers combined in various mesmerizing patterns, KOKET’s feathers are available by the panel or as a finish to chair backs, armoires, tabletops and bar cabinets.
Once feathers get broken from wind or water, they can be repaired by being smoothed over. The individual threads work like zippers to piece together intricate patterns with a large range of hues.
The brands desire to work with feathers and unusual materials comes from the Founder and CEO’s, Janet Morais, admiration for fashion and the great masters of Haute-Couture. Drama-loaded plumage-trimmed skirts, degrade feather dresses and capes, seen at Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Paris Haute Couture, further inspired KOKET to expand its feather collection.
Mistic Guinea Feathers
Paying tribute to the recent blast of an amber palette in the world of interiors, KOKET’s showstopping feathers are a unique way to exotically include warm minimalism and chocolaty accents. Mistic Guinea naturally fuses brown and gold undertones and a gradient black and white spotted pattern. The distinctive feather markings make it an exceptional choice.
Tartan Faucon Feathers
Black horizontal stripes frame the gold hues in Tartan Faucon. Resembling the crisscrossed pattern, associated with the Scottish tradition, the visibly gold metallic shades and brown outlining contribute to a magnificent and gilded complexion.
Towering plumes have been in the brands radar since its first debut, twelve years ago. The Divine Armoire was the first ever furniture piece to be covered in delicate, individually placed natural feathers throughout. Customizable with any pattern from KOKET’s feather collection, it is an utterly desirable design.
Since then, KOKET has developed a full collection of furniture and mastered its use in various forms. Startling feathers are beautifully displayed under glass, supported by graceful arching lacquered legs, in the Merveille Dining Table. To complete the set, the Merveille Dining Chair’s back is coated in stunning feathers.
Enticing admirers of exotic feather patterns can also indulge in an opulent Temptation Bar Cabinet. Promising to steal cocktail hour, the chic black and gold interior is perfectly in sync with extravagant outer doors. Open or closed with its flirty tassel pulls exposed, this bar cabinet is ready for a party or a romantic night in.
KOKET: The Only Haute Couture Brand in The World of Interiors
KOKET has never hidden it’s love for fashion and haute couture. In fact, it is one of the brand’s biggest inspirations in the creative process for new furniture and interior design. So, it comes as no surprise that after Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Paris Haute Couture shows, the creative minds of KOKET began putting pencil to paper designing furniture pieces that bring the Haute Couture runway to the world of interiors. Sumptuous embellishments, embroidered intricacies, rich patterns, the iconic black & gold combination, feathers, florals and reptiles have all been pulled out of the brand archives and rethought for this season.
KOKET's Haute Craftmanship
Just as in fashion being able to call yourself Haute Couture is not something to be taken lightly, it consists of using highly skilled talent, endless hours of precise hand workmanship and the use of the finest materials the market has to offer. Pieces such as the Goddess Mirror and Forbidden Bed are true examples of endless hours to achieve the desired outcome.
Iconic Black & Gold
KOKET is known globally for its gout for high drama and the iconic black & gold combination. Upholstery is often shown in black for one simple reason: it is the “little black dress”. Designers adorn their dramatic black canvas with rich gold accents of metal, exquisite silk embroidery and exotic leathers.
Examples of the black canvas can be found in Elie Saab’s 2022 collection, where the gold accents are what give the piece structure, curve and strong presence. Just as in KOKET’s Chandra Chair, Ribbon Console, Tears Coffee Table and Euphoria Screen the gold accents tell the story behind the piece.
Intricate Feather Design
The usage of delicate feathers on furniture pieces was first seen on the brand’s launch collection back in 2010, when KOKET seduced Paris design week with the Devine Armoire. Janet Morais, the brand’s CEO and Founder, has been working with exquisite and delicate feathers since the brands inception. Magnificent plumes have been applied in chair backs, armoires, bar cabinets, wall panels and coverings. Once again, we see that KOKET is and has always been in line with the great masters of Haute Couture, who adored at Paris Haute Couture Week drama-loaded plumage-trimmed skirts, degrade feather dresses and capes, larger than life feather hats and soft sleave accents.
KOKET’s feather collection consists of peacock, pheasant and quail feathers sourced from the finest suppliers without endangering any species.
Gold gilded glamour is at KOKET’s core. In true Dolce & Gabana Alta Moda style, heavy gold accents have made the KOKET pieces true metal statement pieces, taking inspiration from nature and converting it into magnificent metal works of art. The Heive Cabinet draws inspiration form a bee Heive adorned by sunrays, the Revê Mirror was once a layered flower that was placed in front of a metal craftsman for him gracefully curve a sheet of metal into a dreamy mirror. The most recent metal ribbon like piece added to the collection was the Neurotic Sconce which resembles the Chloe Sconce in its graceful curves.
Seductive Figure of a Serpent
KOKET’s use of the snake symbol has dual expression of good and evil, love and hate, fear and fascination. Meticulously hand-carved sculptural snakes are in the Serpentine Collection, Mistress Confidante and in the rich embossed leathers in the textile collection.
Zuhair Murad didn’t shy away from the use of the snake’s shape to create sensual tribute to this mystical creature symbolizing health and vigor.
Bringing Nature Home
Fashion & KOKET have turned again to nature for inspiration. The Guilty Pleasure collection features a bouquet of beautifully shaped floral elements such as flowers, petals and leaves, either fashioned out of metal, wood or gold filagree. Schiaparelli’s surrealist nature inspirations and Gianbattista Valli fuel the minds of KOKET’s creative designers in ways that only nature can compete. This season KOKET has added natural stones to the already glorious Stella Mirror and Spellbound Cabinet.
