Rose Tarlow Melrose House
Born in Shanghai, China, and raised in New Jersey, designer Rose Tarlow's first foray into business was an antiques store, 'R. Tarlow Antiques', on Melrose Place in Los Angeles. Demand for her decorating services increased as a result of that enterprise, and the store would grow into a full-service interior design company, renamed 'Rose Tarlow Melrose House'. It now has 14 satellite locations across the globe. Tarlow was inducted into Interior Design Magazine’s Hall of Fame in 1995, a mere 19 years after she started her own firm. Other Hall of Fame inductees for that year included Gene Moore, Debra Lehman-Smith, Bunny Williams and Franklin D. Israel. A graduate of Emerson College in Boston, Parsons School of Design and The New York School of Interior Design, Tarlow has harnessed her knowledge and skill to create a collection of fabrics for Perennials, a home textiles firm, a line of furniture and soft furnishings for Thomas Lavin and Dering Hall, and wallpaper for Scalamandre. The creative entrepreneur's designs have been showcased multiple times in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Architectural Digest, ELLE DÉCOR, Town and Country, Veranda and House Beautiful. In 2018, Architectural Digest included Tarlow on the AD100 list, a prestigious list of top designers and architects. Tarlow has presented design masterclasses for UCLA. Her book, The Private House, has been continuously reprinted since it was first published in 2001 and is a standard curriculum text for design schools. In her teaching, writing and exquisite studio work, Tarlow is a true influencer for the next generation of artists and designers.
