Shopper's Diary: Rose Tarlow Melrose House in LA

Issue 49 · Contemporary Elegance · December 7, 2009

Good news for admirers of Rose Tarlow's understated, Euro-influenced aesthetic (and readers of her near-iconic design book The Private House): the designer and antiquarian recently opened a new incarnation of Melrose House, her LA shop, in a 9,000-square-foot landmarked building in West Hollywood (former home of the Heritage Book Bindery). Designed in partnership with architect Marc Appleton, the lofty, open-layout showroom features abundant natural light and hand-finished, reclaimed oak floors. Tarlow's line of furniture (adaptations of antiques she's collected), textiles, lighting, and accessories are displayed in artfully arranged vignettes; also on view, Tarlow's first collection of linen rugs and her new modern furniture line. Go to Rose Tarlow for more information.
