During the annual Architectural Digest Design Show and DIFFA’s Dining by Design fundraiser event which took place from March 21 to 24, 2019 New York City was alive with design lovers from across the city and around the globe. On Saturday night the place to be was Koktails with KOKET! A delicious signature pink KOKET Koktail, a spectacular setting filled with elegant florals at Covet House NYC, and a delightful group of guests made for a truly magical evening of glamour, laughs, and connections.
Located on the third floor of 172 Madison in the residential tower’s ‘Mansion’ apartment the stunning Covet House NYC showroom was a perfect venue for the first (of many!) Koktails with KOKET event. The 3-bedroom apartment boasts 18-foot ceilings. Nearly 3,000 SF inside and an additional 3,000 SF wrap around terrace featuring a one-of-a-kind outdoor pool. The apartment turned showroom includes a main living/dining room and office beautifully appointed with luxury furniture from numerous brands available exclusively in the USA through DeMorais International. And above all a stunning master suite filled with KOKET.
Event designer Chaya Bromberg of Creative Table Spaces partnered with KOKET filling Covet House NYC with enchanting décor for the occasion. White and green orchids dripped from a unique floral arch, gold candelabras and intriguing sculptural vases throughout the apartment. In addition to the beautiful adornment Creative Table Spaces also supplied a delicious array of hors d’oeuvres. In true KOKET style, lavish glamour was everywhere!
As guests arrived, they received a beautiful pink signature cocktail. A twist on the classic French 75, the KOKET Koktail, a Hibiscus Lime French 75, was designed especially for KOKET by the fabulous mixologist Ana Pinto. Firstly, dried hibiscus infused simple syrup adds a perfectly KOKET pinkish hue and floral notes to the classic French 75 which uses gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and champagne. Ana then suggested Dorothy Parker Gin from the Brooklyn-based New York Distilling Company, La Marca Prosecco, and lime juice instead of lemon for the perfect cocktail. In short, let’s just say it was a smashing HIT!
Throughout the event guests toured the magnificent apartment. And while of course everyone loved all the glamour Covet House NYC offers, KOKET’s master bedroom was a favorite! From the elegant appeal of the fully upholstered Plisse Bed and sensuous curves of the vintage-inspired Orchidea nightstands to the sparkling brilliance of the Eternity chandelier and matching sculptural sconces, this bedroom reigns haute style! In addition, at the foot of the bed lie two plush cream and gold Bolvardi benches beckoning you to sit. The endlessly chic room is completed with luxurious bedding by Cloud9 Design and a dazzling metallic wallpaper.
