Our Team

Every day at Merida you can see the transformative value of design at work, and what can happen when you honor the creative process and cultivate talent through daily practice.

That can-do spirit inspires everything we do — and you can feel the hand in everything we make.

From our craftspeople in Fall River to our design team; our inside sales and business development teams; our showroom partners; and our trusted partners at the source, our team brings deep expertise to help designers create one-of-a-kind experiences for their clients.
