We were recently asked to give a quick tour of the new Rose Tarlow Melrose House showroom that opened several weeks ago at the D&D Building here in New York . We've always been big fans of Rose and her timeless designs so of course we were excited about the opportunity.
RTMH actually opened as R. Tarlow Antiques in 1976 on the then secluded Melrose Place in Los Angeles. When she began designing her own furniture a few years later, she sought to create a collection where "every piece was that special piece." Today that collection includes not only furniture but lighting, accessories, textiles, leather and rugs, all of which exude Rose’s unique aesthetic of old-world sophistication but made relevant for today’s tastes and lifestyles.
We hope you enjoy the video which you can also view at Go Design Go, the trusted and very resourceful blog brought to you by the D&D building. And once you've finished the above tour be sure and check out more of Rose's work on her beautiful website which you can see here.

An architecture and design journalist, Kristal is a contributing editor of Dwell, a former editor of AIA/J, and has written for Metropolis, the New York Times, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and numerous other publications. Aside from being a prolific writer, he also happens to be a genuinely nice guy whose enthusiasm for what he covers is positively infectious. He was quite proud of his new publication and rightfully so – it's a really fantastic book. We're equally excited about our copy and have a feeling you will be as well. Available where fine books are sold, Re:Crafted is an excellent resource and certainly worth adding to your own design library. We highly recommend you check it out.
