The Decorative Arts and Design Council (DADC) of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will honor designer Rose Tarlow with its third annual Design Leadership Award next month.
The Design Leadership Award honors an individual or company whose outstanding achievements have set a high standard in the field of design. As a designer, educator and author, the Council recognized Rose Tarlow's extraordinary design contributions and the longevity of the furnishings company she founded, Rose Tarlow Melrose House, which will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2011.
“California more than at any other period in history is experiencing what it means to be at cross roads of the world. The world is watching us,” said Rose Tarlow. “What an exciting time for LACMA to have undergone such an amazing rebirth. The museum is today a major cultural institution that establishes Los Angeles as a highly respected contributor to the world of art. I am deeply honored to receive this prestigious award and truly appreciative to be continuously challenged working in a profession that I love.”
With funds raised from the Design Leadership Award Celebration, the Decorative Arts and Design Council—chaired by Los Angeles-based designer Oliver Furth—will acquire an Art Deco table by Jock Peters for the Bullock’s Wilshire department store. This table will be part of the Decorative Arts and Design Department’s forthcoming exhibition, California Design 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way, opening October 1, 2011.
“For 35 years, Rose Tarlow has created remarkable furnishings, assembled with a brilliant sensibility. Through her publications as well as her extraordinary body of work, she is a passionate, eloquent spokesperson for the power of design in all of our lives,” said Wendy Kaplan, Department Head and Curator, Decorative Arts and Design, LACMA.
Ms. Tarlow will design an original vignette centered around the table, to be displayed at Rose Tarlow Melrose House on December 9th during the cocktail reception and award presentation event. To commemorate the event, Rose Tarlow Melrose House created 350-limited edition ceramic ivory vases. A percentage of the proceeds of this vase will be donated to the Decorative Arts and Design Council to support future acquisitions.
