Eclectic, eccentric, excellent.. The Scene By far, the only store in Pittsburgh where one can buy a book on Star Wars' cooking recipes, a belt made from recycled tires and bottle caps and a sofa, loveseat and queen-sized bed all in one trip. If Weisshouse were a theatrical production, it would assuredly be off-Broadway. Way off Broadway. Weisshouse specializes in the unique, the unusual, and the most bizarre of high-class home furnishings. Weathered, antique cabinets sit next to plush designer chairs and finished coffee tables. Every piece of furniture is it's own intricate piece of art, each slightly different and remarkable.
The Attitude Weisshouse is sophisticated in a kitschy, colorful way. There's a playfulness and smart sense of humor to almost every item in the store, from the eggbeaters with plastic duck-shaped handles to the eyebrow-raising books on the shelf like "The Bad Girls' Guide to the Open Road" and "Drinking, Smoking and Screwing." All this clever haberdashery is juxtaposed next to designer Donna Karen candles and scented soaps, which is why Weisshouse is so darn out of the ordinary.
