Staging by Lara is a full service home design company. Our goal is to provide thoughtful, deliberate and pretty design, whether we are staging for sale, or decorating for every day life.
Since our inception in 2011, we have helped bring over hundreds of homes to market. 97% of our homes have sold, many significantly over their asking price. We do both owner occupied and vacant stages, and our clients are a combination of homeowners, realtors, estate attorneys, and builders. While we definitely attract the luxury market, we have staged homes in every price point.
Our service area is based out of Short Hills, New Jersey. We stage properties in Millburn, West Orange, South Orange, Maplewood, Summit, Chatham, Westfield, Morristown, New York City and Montclair on a routine basis. And we have had projects as far away as Chicago, Miami and Israel!
To keep up with our clients’ demands, more than 50% of Staging by Lara is interior design work! We do one-hour accessorizing sessions and complete full room design. We work with spec builders and home owners on full house construction, bath and kitchen renovations and exteriors. We can select everything from paint colors and floor stains, plumbing and lighting fixtures, door hardware and accessories, sofas, window treatments, rugs… you name it. Returning to Lara’s roots, we are now back to art advising and collecting.
Lara believes that no project is too big or too small, and true beauty and functionality can be achieved in every price point. Designing rooms from a real-life “mom” perspective, Lara creates livable living rooms where no seat is off-limits.
Lara consults on an hourly basis for most projects, enabling people to access her expertise for as big or little a project as one needs. Full room designs have a project minimum, and to facilitate clients during COVID, we offer virtual consultations.
