The Core Team
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.
When Frederique Georges, fondly known in both business and personal circles as Freddie, was a little girl, her parents would constantly return to a redecorated home. Not just once, not just twice, but time and time again. Freddie’s “home”-work was an ongoing occurrence her parents came to expect and eventually, to enjoy. Born of Armenian and French descent, immigrating to the US with family at the age of 10 and becoming a naturalized citizen at the age of 18, Freddie is very proud of her American citizenship and her family’s encouragement towards higher education.
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.

The Administrative Team
Driven by the desire to organize, manage and direct, Melanie Chomchavalit always knew she wanted to become a businesswoman. Armed with a BS in Business Administration from California State University, Long Beach, she landed her first professional role as Freddie’s sales assistant. Under her leadership, Melanie gained an extensive knowledge of the trade show industry.
In 2000, Melanie jumped at the opportunity to assist Freddie and Fritz with the launch of FormDecor, by serving as the accounting manager. Melanie thrived in this position, finding it rewarding to manage and oversee the financials.
