Stacy Weiss: Shadyside, Pennsylvania

While a common challenge of loft living is in creating an inviting environment, Weiss met this obstacle head-on. "You really have to put lots of pieces in place so it doesn't seem cold," she states.

Rather than fulfilling a wish-list of items and furnishings, Weiss takes a more emotive approach to choosing what she brings home. By loving every piece that she buys and then finding a place for it, she has created a relaxed environment where just about everything has a story.

The leather chair and ottoman, for example, had belonged to Weiss's parents. They had bought it brand new back in the 70s. "I was young," Weiss explains, "and I thought it was so ugly- eventually I fell in love with it!" She inherited the set about ten years ago, and has never lost appreciation for it.

Hi there! The clear Lucite chair is by Ralph Lauren. The homeowner purchased it as a prototype, which unfortunately never went into production.

It is a vintage Italian chair. It has been in the family since the late 70's. it probably cost 4000 at the time but I think is worth much more now!

Vintage leather. Leather is a no-brainer. It's edgy and it always will be. Vintage leather is even more so. Take a look at eBay or your local antique store. If you find a vintage leather chair, ottoman or sofa that fits your space, just go for it. These pieces always look great and add an interesting texture to your furniture mix.

Collected and Colorful Gallery Style in PittsburghThe tall ceilings and whitewashed bricks in this Pittsburgh apartment seemed to beg for walls filled with art. Luckily, this homeowner could fulfill the need. With every wall covered in personal, found and antique art, the open space shines with personality, color and warmth. See more of this loft
