Lara spent 15 years in the art and auction market in New York City with extensive financial and art advisory experience. Looking for a more creative outlet, and a way to expand upon her love of accessorizing and design, Lara went to work for a Contemporary Art dealer and then an interior decorator.
Lara opened STAGINGbyLARA in 2011, and has since influenced over 500 rooms for the better. She is a HSR Certified Professional Home Stager and Redesigner, and a proud member of the ASHSR (American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners).
When not on the job, Lara can be found at home with her husband, 3 kids and standard poodle Tess, resisting the urge to rearrange the living room.
