Stacy Weiss: Shadyside, Pennsylvania

A doll from Weiss's childhood offers a playful disposition to the otherwise formal wingback chair. "Her name is Funny," Weiss says. She is an exact replica of a doll that Weiss carried as a young child. "I slept with the original into teens—until she disintegrated. My parents found this one at a flea market about 15 years ago," she explains. Although Funny came with a relatively high pricetag, Weiss's mother convinced her father to buy it anyway. Weiss laughs, "She twisted his arm- I think literally!"

In addition to giving the white chair a punch of color, Funny imbues the space with a personal connection that goes beyond careful selection. Reinforcing the sentimental connection is the crocheted throw, a prized possession knitted for Weiss by her daughter.
