Rose Tarlow Melrose House will open a dedicated showroom in New York next week, which will be the first since the original namesake showroom opened 30 years ago in Los Angeles. The new 3,000-square-foot showroom will be located in New York City's Design and Decoration (D&D) building and will showcase standard and custom pieces, furniture, textiles, lighting and accessories, and decorative objects sourced from Tarlow’s global travels.

“It is tremendously exciting for me personally that Rose Tarlow Melrose House will have its own shop in Manhattan,” said designer Rose Tarlow. “I have always taken in to consideration how people live and interact in this remarkable city. Having a shop here means I can offer New York designers an interesting collection of my favorite designs and fabrics, and of course, my new contemporary pieces and rugs.”

The new textile gallery will also be enhanced by gorgeous new glazed linens in Tarlow’s unusual color palette, as well as an exotic new collection of hand dyed, hand woven designs from Senegal, which combine the raw character of Africa with a contemporary sophistication.

“Setting up our own shop in the D&D Building was a natural step for us,” said Meg Touborg, Rose Tarlow Melrose House CEO. “Now, we can be an even stronger partner with new ideas and a broader and deeper range of our fine home furnishings. We just finished our new flagship in Los Angeles, just launched our web site and adding a meaningful presence in New York is really exciting addition to our company’s growth plans.”

Previously carried at the Holly Hunt showroom in the D&D building, the company’s decision to move to a dedicated space in New York City follows on the heels of the unveiling of its impressive flagship showroom on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles and the re-launch of its Web site last Fall. It is an exciting time for change at Rose Tarlow Melrose House and what better way to showcase change and innovation than a dynamic presence in New York City.

The company also distributes its products in its flagship showroom in Los Angeles and through 15 select multi-line showrooms in the U.S.
