About Mark Rose

Mark Rose began collecting art deco objects early from small-town Iowa flea markets and antique shops. He graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an emphasis in fashion design. There, he developed a deep interest in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a German-born American architect. He is known for his role in the development of modernism and the dictum “Less is more.” In 1947 the Bauhaus movement relocated to the U.S. and became known as the International Style.

In 1998 Mark first visited Palm Springs. Enchanted by the Nuetra house and the bounty of midcentury design homes, he purchased a classic Wexler home with a pool and diving board and never looked back.

Mark built his career in Los Angeles. There, he worked with high-end Italian furniture brands, including opening interior designer Giulio Capellini’s first LA showroom. Giulio is the founder and art director of the Italian furniture company Cappellini based in Milan.

He went on to work with Blackman Cruz, considered one of the best antique and modern furniture galleries in Los Angeles.  In 2005 he opened Rose, his first art and design boutique located on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Rose became noted for its eclectic curation and style with an A list celebrity clientele. In 2009 he began designing large scale commercial and residential interior projects for private clients.

Wolf is a culmination of Mark’s experience and interests in exceptional art and design. Palm Springs provides the perfect environment to engage with collectors worldwide.
