Large Staging Companies:
Large staging companies stage 50 or more houses at any time and over 200 houses a year. They are more expensive than medium or smaller staging companies because they have higher overhead, but offer a wider selection of furnishings, shorter wait times, and have more manpower. They do not do partial or owner-occupied stagings and tend to not be cost effective for properties with property values under $1M. One big advantage of large staging companies is their capacity- they can stage homes quickly- sometimes in just a few days, whereas smaller companies might need two weeks or more if they are busy or need to wait for a destaging to get some of their furniture back.
Meridith Baer is the Largest Staging Company in US. They have about 150 homes staged at any given time, and stage over 800 homes a year. In more recent years MB has expanded to other big city markets, like San Francisco and New York, among others. Meridith Baer has a huge 200,000 sqft warehouse in South Gate – 4100 Ardmore Ave, that houses all of their furniture. The minimum staging cost is $6,000, and it can go up to $30,000 – $50,000+ for large estates. MB stays up to date with the latest design trends. No other staging company has a larger collection of furniture. They can do any style.
Jeff Marshall stages 100 properties at any given time – and roughly 400 homes a year. Marshall Design Group is the second largest staging company in Los Angeles. They service all of Southern California. They are known for a transitional style that is an updated traditional with modern touches, that appeals to high-end buyers- a conservative look that is light and clean. “with staging your trying to appeal to the broadest audience, you don’t know who the buyer is going to be, and you don’t want to turn anybody off with a bold decision” – Jeff Marshall.

Modiano Design & Staging
Aggie Kiss is the owner of Modiano Design. Pricing starts at $4,000. Modiano travels anywhere in LA, they can go to Palm Springs and Orange County by special request. Aggie is known for color, but in the recent year, she has transitioned to a more neutral palette. Owner-occupied staging ok, although she needs $500 deposit. Stages about 6-10 homes a month.
Sarah Chavez and Marina Mizruh are interior designers. They also do some staging but it is not their main focus. Their staging is straight out of a magazine, and great for high end homes with a distinguished pedigree. Expect to pay for quality.
Michael McCraine has a quirky, creative style with pops of color. Definitely right at home with Markets like Venice and Silverlake. The might be a few $1,000 more expensive then other staging companies, but they have a lot of depth and are very handson. If you are looking for something a little different- fictional delivers.

Eastside Staging Companies:
The Eastside of Los Angeles has a very different vibe then other parts of LA. The buyers tend to be younger (30s-40s), first time home buyers that are attracted by affordable prices. Home Prices start at $600,000 and averaging around $900,000 on the Eastside, with the high end properties going for $1,500,000 to $2,000,000 (except for Pasadena). These younger buyers are more daring, so staging companies on the Eastside are pushing the envelope on design with colorful fabrics and objects and very busy patterns that sometimes clash, with a dash of vintage.
Kimberly Behling is the owner. Our warehouse is based in Glendale and we serve surrounding areas including Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, South Pasadena, Arcadia, Altadena, Glendale, La Crescenta, San Marino and the entire San Gabriel Valley region as well as Los Angeles and Beverly Hills.
