Furniture in Friendship

Select Local Merchants

Owned and operated by three generations of Staley family women, The Picket Fence has swathed women, children, and infants in designer apparel and accessories for the past 10 years. The shop’s selection of sweaters was named as one of the best in town by CBS Pittsburgh in an article that asserted that “this shop will become one of your favorite places to frequent when you are craving something new for your wardrobe.” The fashion-savvy Staley women select items from lines such as Orla Kiely, Lauren Moffatt, and Alexis Bittar. Children’s items run under labels including Oilily and Lilly Pulitzer. Thanks to a number of home accessories and gifts that enhance the shopping experience, an examiner.com columnist dubbed The Picket Fence as “the ultimate Shadyside fashion boutique.” Additionally, a variety of children’s toys offer whippersnappers respite from stressful make-believe games of applying for imaginary car loans.

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.
