Vastu again welcomes artist Brian Petro back to our walls March 25th through early June. From classic floral and sculptural imagery in his signature transfer style, to his fresh new chunky oil paint abstracts and scrawled quirky painted drawings, Brian elicits comfort, joy, and humor in this show.
His work represents his wandering and wondering mind. He credits his style to the dichotomy between his supportive, rural, central-Pennsylvanian upbringing and the brutal independence of urban life. Global travel and urban exploration fuel his search for images, ideas and processes.
Brian is presently represented by galleries in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Rehoboth Beach. His work is also on display in venues in Brazil, England, Italy and Hong Kong. Past commercial clients include Absolut Vodka (who commissioned Brian to design the Absolut Dupont Circle Ad), The Ritz Carlton Hotels, Saks Fifth Avenue, and The Library of Congress. Brian has been published in regional and national news magazines and newspapers, and he and his work have been featured on several television shows including HGTV’s Curb Appeal and Showhouse Showdown
To arrange a tour of Brian’s studio, located in the lower showroom here at Vastu, please contact him directly at (202) 270-7352 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

We’re quickly approaching Christmas and I understand that some gifts can get forgotten until the last minute. Trust me, last minute shopping is no fun.
But Vastu is here to help! If you’re finishing up your shopping in MidCity in the next couple of days then why not stop by and get some great gifts for the home?
And don’t forget to check out our 14th Street neighbors for more great gift ideas:
That’s basically the gist from a recent article from Urban Turf describing the more than several projects currently happening and planned for the 14th Street corridor.
And when I say several, it’s literal. From above Florida Avenue to south of Rhode Island Avenue (on 14th), there are a total of 10 residential projects that are in the final planning stages or are under construction. Read more

That’s right, this weekend was your last chance to buy great pieces of furniture from Knoll at a reduced price (until next year). We appreciate and thank everyone who came out this weekend supported a local business. It was great catching up with clients new and old and being able to offer such a great discount on the high-quality and equally beautiful Knoll furniture.
Something I noticed as people were placing their orders was that there seemed to be a “fan favorite” of sorts. The Eero Saarinen Womb Chair and Ottoman.
Available in both the original size and a medium version (which is 85% of the original’s size) the Womb chair is a fantastically comfortable and visually striking chair to own. The soft undulations of the chair’s surface hug your body and make it a joy to sit in. And with all of the fabric choices available, the Womb chair is pretty easy to use in a variety of spaces. Check out the images we found from Knoll below. Read more
