Our Story

Meridith BaerMERIDITH BAER HOME is the premiere home staging company in the nation.

Featuring beautiful materials, elegant furniture, and the keen eye of an expert designer, we create alluring spaces that make houses feel luxurious and desirable.

Our homes frequently sell faster and for higher prices than unstaged homes. We install over 140 properties per month and many of those sell in less than 30 days.

Meridith Baer Home has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, Bravo, CNBC, and The Discovery Channel. We’ve been written about in The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Forbes, Entrepreneur, 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 2014-2017. We’ve also received their Customer Service, Houzz Recommended, and Influencer awards.

We maintain over 300,000 square feet of warehouse space nationwide overflowing with furniture, artwork, rugs, lighting, plants, and accessories. We also design and manufacture our own signature line (please email shop@meridithbaer.com for more info).

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

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. She asked a friend who was selling her home to let her “decorate” the property with her things.

The house had been on market over a year. Meridith convinced her friend it would finally sell if instead of sitting empty, buyers could see 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 asked Meridith to stage their properties. Soon, she needed a van and crew to help, then other interior designers. She rented a small warehouse (the old Tootsie Roll factory in Culver City) for her ever-growing inventory of furnishings. The sign on the door read Meridith Baer & Associates.

Before long, Meridith Baer & Associates owned a growing fleet of moving vans and was generating more than $1M per year in California. The next few years saw a push into other luxury housing markets: Connecticut, then New York, then coastal Florida. The company opened an East Coast office and warehouse.

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 docu-series following Meridith and her designers as they staged luxury homes in Hollywood. Expansion into new areas continued—first in the Hamptons, then internationally in Cabo San Lucas, then throughout Northern California.

At present, Los Angeles Business Journal has named Meridith Baer Home one of their fastest growing private companies three years running. Our East Coast expansion has continued into New Jersey, Maryland, Washington DC, and Nantucket, and closer to home, we’ve also begun working in Las Vegas. We’ve developed a signature line of furniture—The Meridith Baer Home Collection—featured in all our staged homes, and the company keeps getting bigger each year!
