A white sofa is a timeless piece. “I find them to make the design very flexible, and you can change your style and colors as you feel like it,” says Baer.

Baer has a team of 250 employees — including 30 designers — and 20 moving trucks to create Meridith Baer Home, one of the nation’s premier home-staging companies, primping and prepping about 175 listings a month.
