Levin Furniture has been passed down through generations of Levins since 1920, when Jessie Levin persuaded her husband to start a business to help their daughters' prospects. Since then, the business has grown, expanded, and gained a reputation for procuring and selling quality furniture. Levin Furniture's stock includes leather reclining sofas, beautifully carved dining tables, and sleigh beds from Daniel's Amish using hardwood materials from Ohio.

After more than 120 years of sprucing up homes with high-quality paints and home décor, Westmoreland Supply continues the tradition with a variety of PPG Pittsburgh Paints. Made from a 100% acrylic formula, Manor Hall interior paints ($48.18–$51.57) coat walls in several stain-resistant sheens, such as the soft, subtle Eggshell. Or, Manor Hall exterior paint with Manorshield ($53.49–$58.84) has an urethane-fortified mildew-resistant finish that prevents cracking and peeling in any weather condition, from heavy summer downpours to winter cold snaps to Halloween toilet-paper storms.
Museums typically showcase art in carefully curated rooms. At Mattress Factory, however, the room itself is the art. Since 1977, the museum's two buildings have housed a permanent collection of contemporary installation art—room-sized works that engulf the entire space. In Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Dots Mirrored Room, mirrored ceilings and walls infinitely reflect a trio of fluorescent dots painted on a white formica floor. In Greer Lankton's It's all about ME, Not You, astroturf lines a floor covered in artful arrangements of grotesque dolls that form shrines to artists such as Patti Smith and Candy Darling.
To further immerse guests, Mattress Factory's exhibitions are paired with educational programs that range from lectures to hands-on art projects. Along with stimulating the public, the museum stimulates the growth of artists through its residency program, which invites participants to create installations while living near the museum, a much more practical alternative to hiding a secret cot in the coatroom.
For 17 years, third-generation and FAA–certified sky engineer Addison M. Brown has hoisted panorama junkies into the sky by harnessing the power of hot, blustery air. Each morning, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., he and his team pile up to 8 to 14 passengers into the basket of their giant balloons. Then, firing off the burner, they slowly lift off as the sun begins its own ascent, typically reaching heights from 500 to 2,000 feet. Below them, the rays of the sunrise wash over vistas of downtown Asheville, a patchwork of multicolored crop fields, and the tree-covered backs of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maneuvering with the morning's mild wind currents, they ferry the group over hills and hollows for a 3- to 5-mile float. Upon a gentle landing, the crew celebrates with passengers by offering them a champagne toast and helping them dust the clouds out of their hair. Passengers are welcomed to bring their own cameras or video cameras to document the flight.
The Coury family has been adorning Pittsburgh's bedrooms since 1950, when the first Coury Furniture opened its doors. Since 1988, Mattress World has carried on the family tradition of quality with a selection of more than 20 mattress brands, including Simmons, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic, in more than 100 styles. Factory-trained sales associates escort guests to cushions that fulfill their needs in terms of firmness, durability, size, and ability to withstand being dropped off a 10-story building. In addition to traditional innerspring and memory-foam mattresses, customers choose from a selection of waterbeds, futons, and iron and brass frames. Accessories such as bedding-protection kits help shield mattresses from bed bugs, dust mites, and allergens while preventing already-counted sheep from nibbling the sheets.
