Editor Find: Lavish Body and Home

LAVISH Body and Home soap

Most people know Scranton, Pennsylvania, as the fictional setting of NBC’s “The Office.” Turns out the “Electric City” is also the real life-setting of one of the most charming little spas in the state: LAVISH Body and Home (600 Lindsen St.; 570/558-2273), founded by Matt Drace (a former Creative Director at Travel + Leisure) and Jon Chernes, one-time marketing guru for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Given their impressive design resumes, it’s no surprise that their home goods section is well edited, but the spa itself is a huge draw. Clients love the organic facials—each one is tailored to your specific skin type and uses everything from cucumber to rice bran to draw out impurities—but personally, I love the soaps, made in Northern California of locally sourced herbs (my favorite: orange cinnamon with olive, which smells a bit like Florida at the holidays).
