About Us

Marguerite Cronin and Bridget Russo bring years of experience and training in the art and design industry.

Since founding Manhattan Apartment Stagers, the team has completed hundreds of successful staging assignments for a wide range of properties for New York City’s top real estate brokers.

Bridget’s passion for interior design and real estate started long before she founded Manhattan Apartment Stagers. After moving to New York City and attending the Parsons School of Design, Bridget honed her knowledge of art and design while working for Kentshire Galleries, one of the foremost dealers of fine antique English Furniture. Bridget’s clients at Kentshire were some of the world’s leading interior designers. She integrates her understanding of architecture, design, and practicality into her staging work. Bridget resides on the Upper West Side with her husband, Chris and longhaired dachshund, Georgie.

Marguerite’s love of design began when she attended FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). After stumbling into textile design class, her joy of design was launched. Upon graduation from FIT, Marguerite began a career designing wallpaper and fabric for many prominent textile manufacturers in the home furnishings industry. Marguerite’s use of color and texture brings a uniquely curated vision to our staging work. Marguerite now resides on the Upper East Side with her husband.
