Meridith Baer is a renowned home staging company based out of Los Angeles, California who shows her talents through house-staging, furnishings, interior design and event interiors on both the West and East coasts. Her design team has been staging ultra-luxurious homes since 1998 with a clientele that includes about 300 celebrities and billionaires. Baer is a former model, actress and Hollywood screenwriter who fashioned her ultimate plot twist at age 50 by reinventing herself as a niche entrepreneur. She has a talent for being a storyteller by entering a home and imagining who might live in it, telling their story with ease and elegance.
Baer’s team is known for its uncanny ability to hand-select furnishings and objects that are exactly what visitors would own if they lived in the home. The selections are made from the firm’s 135,000-square-foot warehouse and include furniture, art, books, silverware and everything needed to bring a lived in, cozy feeling to what are typically large spaces.
Baer’s staff of 70 includes decorators, movers, carpenters and upholsterers. The firm bills a design and installation fee of varying amounts, plus a monthly rental fee if the house sits on the market. Once the home sells, Baer’s items are removed to make way for whatever the new owner or his decorator chooses.
Baer’s design talents range from traditional, transitional, modern, European, coastal, estates, highrises, condos and lofts; which can be seen in this collection of inspiring interiors that are shown below.
