Toraé was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York where she developed her sense of design through her cultural experiences. Her passion has always been to create a “WOW” factor for people, homes, and events.
Starting out as an event planner, owning her own business, Toraé worked on several events including fashion shows, corporate events, birthday parties, baby showers and weddings. Although, she loved what she did, she soon realized that she was not passionate about the planning piece of the business and decided to close the business and go back to school.
She joined the corporate world after obtaining her BA from Rollins College, in Organizational Communication. It was then that she started her career as a Human Resources Manager and worked for a few industries before her last role at a major retailer. Here, surrounded by trending looks for homes, she had her “ahh haa” moment and realized that she was not walking in her given purpose. She believes that she was created to uplift people by helping their visions come to fruition through interior design. It was then that Toraé founded Modern Glam Designs Interior Firm in Kissimmee, Florida.
After running a successful business for over 8 years in Florida, Toraé relocated to Montclair, New Jersey where she now owns and serves as the Principle of Lenore King Luxury Interiors.
Toraé’s current portfolio includes, new builds, model apartments, apartment communities club houses, vacation homes and residential kitchen and bathroom renovations.
