Nava & Jim Rozati
Jim's natural love for design originally set him on an engineering path. He earned an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from The University of Alabama - before entering the UA graduate school of Structural Engineering.
He moved to Decatur, GA in 1980 and worked at an engineering consulting firm, where he led diverse projects throughout the Metro-Atlanta area, including MARTA. Due to corporate down-sizing, he found himself at a career crossroad and recognized the opportunity to return to his roots: pursuit of his true passion and family's business: furniture, fabric, color and design.
He sought to fulfill a need in Atlanta for a full-service home design center and founded Home Fashion Center in 1990. The business continued to expand and now exists as Home Fashion Interiors.
Jim demonstrated his commitment to clients' needs by founding his signature Rozati Collection, exclusive to HFI. He continues to update HFI's stunning showroom, always following the latest and most practical trends in the home furnishing industry.
When he is not onsite at HFI, you might find him around Alpharetta - on the tennis court, supporting his daughter at King's Ridge Christian School, or cheering on his alma mater with a heart-felt "Roll Tide". His life-long quest for cutting edge design and creativity is nurtured by traveling worldwide with his family.
We all know that behind every good man is an exceptional woman. Nava shares Jim's passion for furniture, color and interior design. She works alongside Jim, participating in daily decision-making with a special focus on accounting and book keeping.
As a result of her background in the hospitality industry, her commitment to customer service is evident throughout the entire Home Fashion Interior experience.

Theresa grew in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky surrounded by nature and horses. Her philosophy on design is to bring as much of the textures and colors of the outdoors inside. Theresa has interior design in her blood. Her great-grandfather was owner of one of the first Interior Design firms in Louisville Kentucky in the early 1900's. She began her career in interior design in Chicago after graduating from design school there. She has lived in Kentucky, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, and now calls Georgia home. Theresa has designed rooms with views of Lake Michigan, the rolling hills of Kentucky, and the winter landscapes of Michigan. While living in Illinois, she had access to the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago, and the beautiful vistas of the lake shore. She has toured many furniture workrooms on the east coast and seen first hand how a quality piece is made. Her vast knowledge of furniture is very helpful for people wanting to have custom designed furniture. She loves to spend time with her husband and two sons, runs her HOA, and is beloved by all feral cats….within a 1 mile radius.

Native-Atlantan, Felipe, is HFI's delivery manager. A gentle giant, Felipe worked at Ferguson's before joining the HFI team.
His position is considered most important at HFI, because he represents the company in clients' homes – where he typically wears sock-feet and gloves when making deliveries.
When Felipe is not thrilling local homeowners with delivery of their new furnishings, he enjoys moonlighting as a DJ for parties, weddings and clubs.
