The AD100

Rose Tarlow’s timeless style murmurs rather than shouts. The Los Angeles interior designer and antiquarian came to prominence in the 1980’s as a dealer, and her early appreciation for gently worn furniture and fabrics laid a foundation for the understated, clutter-free homes she has crafted for David Geffen, Barbara Walters, and others. In her strong but poetic spaces, lovingly burnished wood furnishings – whether Georgian, Louis XVI, Scandinavian modern, or heritage-inspired pieces from her acclaimed Melrose House collection – meet soft materials, such as leather, velvet, and brocade, that only look better the more wear and tear they receive. An essential tutorial on Tarlow’s rarefied and deeply influential look is her 2001 cult favorite book, The Private House (Penguin Random House).
