Our Story

Meridith BaerMeridith Baer Home is the premier home staging company in the nation.

Celebrating 20 years making properties more beautiful and more marketable, we treat every space like a unique vignette, telling its story through alluring, artful design.

Our staged homes frequently sell faster and for higher prices than empty homes. We install over 140 properties per month and many of those sell in less than 30 days. In 2017 alone, we helped sell over $9 billion in real estate.

We also bring our elegant aesthetic to our interior design clients, furnishing not only their residences, but also commercial spaces and events.

Meridith Baer Home has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, Bravo, and The Discovery Channel. We’ve been written about in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Entrepreneur, Forbes, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

In 2013 HGTV premiered Staged To Perfection, a docuseries following Meridith and our team of designers staging multimillion-dollar homes, bringing the company to international attention.

Widely regarded as best in the industry, Houzz has named MBH Best of Design every year since 2014. We’ve also received their Customer Service, Houzz Recommended, and Influencer awards.

We maintain over 300,000 square feet of warehouse space in three states, housing our vast inventory of furniture, artwork, rugs, lighting, plants, and accessories. We also design and manufacture our own signature line.

With offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Hamptons, and Miami, we offer staging, interior design, and luxury furniture leasing nationwide.

Your space has a story. Meridith Baer Home brings that story to life.

ORIGINS

Meridith Baer Home (team)Meridith Baer Home started by accident!

In 1998, Meridith needed somewhere to store her furniture and 250 potted plants after the house she was renting in West Los Angeles was sold out from under her.

A friend’s home had been sitting on market over a year. Meridith convinced her it could finally sell if instead of sitting empty, Meridith “decorated” it with her things, showing buyers exactly how they might live in the space.

Her friend agreed, Meridith decorated, and the house sold just days later to a Hollywood studio executive for $500,000 over asking!

When word got out, other brokers began asking Meridith to stage their properties. Soon, she needed a van and crew to help her, then a team of assistant interior designers. She rented a small warehouse—the old Tootsie Roll factory in Culver City—for her growing inventory of furnishings. The sign on the door read Meridith Baer & Associates.

Before long, Meridith Baer & Associates owned a fleet of moving vans and was generating more than $1M per year in California. The next few years saw a push into luxury housing markets across the country: Connecticut, then New York, then coastal Florida. Initially shipping furniture back and forth, the company soon opened East Coast and Florida offices and warehouses.

MBH manufacturingMeanwhile, having outgrown its Culver City headquarters, MB&A moved to a larger space outside downtown Los Angeles. A fleet of newly purchased semi-trucks filled its loading dock as business continued to grow.

In 2012, the company was renamed Meridith Baer Home. A year later, HGTV premiered Staged to Perfection, a docuseries following Meridith and her designers as they staged luxury homes in Los Angeles. Expansion continued on the East Coast into the Hamptons, the West Coast into the San Francisco Bay Area, and internationally, with the company’s first job in Cabo San Lucas.

At present, Los Angeles Business Journal has named Meridith Baer Home one of their fastest growing private companies four years running. Growth has continued nationwide, from colonial estates in the Mid-Atlantic to showcase homes in Palm Springs to the company’s first Las Vegas highrise!

In addition to staging and designing homes, MBH has also begun furnishing hotels, conventions and other events, showrooms such as CES 2017, and film and advertising sets. The firm has developed a signature line of furniture—The Meridith Baer Home Collection—and the company keeps getting bigger each year!
