design on the edge @ Urbia Home

Tomorrow is a very exciting day for Design On The Edge! We will be taking on a new commercial design project @ Urbia Home. Located at 1811 Chestnut Street in center city Philadelphia, and we'll begin the process of completely re-designing and re-merchandising this fantastic location.

The plan is very make Urbia Home the coolest place to shop for the urban crib, and a top resource for affordable interior design in the city!

I hope you will stay tuned...much more to come!◦

Sparks are flying!

Hey peeps! In the past several weeks I haven't updated this blog very much. I've been working on two really fun and exciting projects. In the city of Philadelphia there are not so many really cool places to shop for the home. Well, that is about to change. Stay tuned, and I will have some really exciting news very soon!

Warmest wishes,

Robert Petril◦

original goodness...

As promised, my friend Gary took me to the original Jim's Steaks location in west philly. I was really looking forward to having lunch at such a nostaglic place. As we got out of the car, the trolly in the photo above was sitting there! I could not believe my eyes! Talk about nostaglia!!! I can remember riding on these same trollys with my grandmother in the late 1960's.

Lunch was so great! I just love these places. That old philly atmosphere. The attitude of the people working there. When I lived here I took all this for granted. But, being away for so long allows me to really appreciate them now.

Thanks to Gary for lunch. And thanks to Jim's for not changing a thing!

Can you taste it?◦
