LA based designer Rose Tarlow‘s aesthetic is synonymous with beauty, comfort, artisan quality craftsmanship and old-world sophistication.
Tarlow’s is one of the best and most influential interior designers working in America today. She opened R. Tarlow Antiques in Los Angeles in 1976, and was inspired shortly thereafter to design her own furniture, using local craftsmen with whom she still works daily to achieve the unique stylistic vision that has become synonymous with her name.
Rose Tarlow Melrose House opened in 1979 and quickly became a preeminent producer of furniture and textiles. Each piece in the Rose Tarlow collection bears her unique signature of design and materials, combined with impeccable quality.
Rose Tarlow knows that creating a truly beautiful room is as much an emotional matter as it is one of color, light, fabric, and furniture. As an internationally-renowned furniture and fabric artisan, interior designer, antiquarian and author, her creations have enchanted the design community for over thirty years.
According to New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger, she “balances emotion and intellect as well as any designer now living … her rooms [combine] sensual pleasures with geometric rigor, and every one of them is simultaneously a lesson in design and a lesson in living.”
