The Core Team
President / Owner
Hailing from the Midwest, Fritz’s talent for the visual aesthetic was nurtured from a young age when he excelled in the arts and crafts division of his local 4H, often bringing home artwork he had colored in with plaid patterns and vibrant prints! It’s only natural that Fritz found his way to Los Angeles after acquiring a solid background in furniture and interior design at Ball State University in Indiana.
Born and raised in the welcoming and beautiful southern state of Alabama, Sebastian has also called Sydney, Aspen, and San Diego home but if you ask him, he’s a Los Angeles native. His 15 year career as a professional ballet and jazz dancer allowed him to travel the world and once the dream fulfilled, he transitioned to a more cerebral career for another 21 years to a Santa Monica personal injury law firm.
Coming from a family with rich history in furniture and interior design in Italy, Rolando Ferilli received a graduate degree in Humanistic Science from the University “La Sapienza” in Rome and a masters degree in “Visual Interior Design” from the European Institute of Design. At the early age of 8 years old, he began following the family business, four upscale antique showrooms in southern Italy kept in the Ferilli family for over 55 years. His entire life Rolando has been surrounded by a mix of beautiful furniture and objet d’ art from the 17th century to contemporary modern.

A Southern California native, Lindsey Collins has called the event and furniture rental industry home for the past six years. Certified in Meeting and Event Planning and now a member of the FormDecor Furniture Rental Team, Lindsey is our newest Account Executive.

A native of Lynwood, California, Evelyn Rivas graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
Having grown up in a large family with a background in law enforcement, Evelyn intimately understands the need for teamwork in all aspects of life. This outlook means that whether she is playing soccer competitively, participating in extreme outdoor activities like sky diving or bungee jumping, or bringing her “A-Game” to the FormDecor offices, communication and teamwork are the cornerstones of her work ethic.
The Administrative Team
Coming from a family of 12, Maria learned all about accountability, integrity and hard work from an early age. An elder in her large clan, her natural gifts of calm patience and strong organizational skills carried over to her career path now as FormDecor’s Accounting & Office Manager. Her maxim “Put all of you into all you do, and you’ll always love what you’ve done” rings true in her personal and professional life. She loves volleyball, softball, bowling and volunteering at her church but her children are her greatest source of pride.
Gabrielle “Gaby” Villalba
Accounting & HR Associate
Gabrielle Villalba or “Gaby” as she likes to be called was born in Manhattan and raised in Miami Beach where she cultivated an appreciation for Art Deco design and architecture and fervent passion for mid-century furniture. Family is her love and joy and enjoys traveling when her busy schedule permits.
In 2003 she answered Southern California’s call when she received a job offer from FormDecor in our early stages and we now welcome her back with open arms where she can now apply her years of HR and accounting experience back where it all began. Being part of the FormDecor Team again is exciting and she missed the creative atmosphere. Her goals are simple, to facilitate a productive and successful work environment for everyone! Welcome aboard!
