WHO: Rose Tarlow

As an internationally-renowned furniture and fabric artisan, interior designer, antiquarian and author, Rose Tarlow’s creations have influenced the design community for over thirty years.

Ms. Tarlow 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. Rose Tarlow Melrose House opened in 1979 and quickly became a preeminent producer of furniture and textiles.

Her book “The Private House” discusses and illustrates simple principles of creative design appropriate to any home. Always arrange your comfortable, upholstered furniture first, she writes; pay special attention to how light affects your spaces; and use carpets as background only, never as the focus of a room.
