'Which', 'whose' or something else?

Of course there isn't a word whichs (as far as I know), but I am talking about the possessive form of which.

Sometimes I use 'whose', but sometimes it just seems inappropriate and that 'who' seems a bit unnatural when being used for inanimate things.

Is it only me who thinks this?

Other times I use 'the X of which', but that can seem a bit convoluted sometimes.

Any other suggestions?
