Noted for her dramatic and edgy design aesthetic, enticing personality and a strong love affair for life, Janet Morais is the driving force behind the seductive brand KOKET Love Happens. Born in New York and raised between Europe and the US, Janet’s deep familiarity with the European culture and her multilingual command of four languages have uniquely positioned her at the center of the rapidly evolving international luxury brand market.
Janet’s love affair with Paris, design, and fashion led her to move to the captivating city of all things glamour. While living in Paris, she immersed herself into the refined Parisian world and developed a highly trained eye for haute taste and a dead-on instinct of trends-to-come and what people wanted.
The desire to create the brand KOKET stemmed from not only from Janet’s devotion to design, but also the constant challenge of finding décor pieces that truly spoke to her during her 10+ years in the interior design world as Founder/Design Principal of the interior design firm DeMorais & Associates. Through her design firm, Janet developed a loyal design 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. Since launching her own brand in 2010, Interior Designer Janet Morais has seduced the design industry with her sensuous designs.
