It is a cold and rainy day when I make the trip to Brooklyn to visit Jessica Morelli, founder of Palermo Body. Wanting to witness her operation first-hand, and not wanting to interrupt her busy schedule, I made plans to meet her at her studio, a 230-square-foot space close to the Williamsburg Bridge that houses her entire operation. As soon as I enter the small, cozy space, the outside cold is swept away, replaced by bustling activity and the refreshing aroma of botanicals.
Amble far enough down fisher road in Worcester, PA and you’ll come upon a picturesque assemblage of rustic barns and wood sheds. The doors are all open, and a low hum emanates from within. As you peek through the entryway, you see the light catch swirling sawdust as Brad Smith and his associates sand, shape and slowly perfect solid wood seats, bed posts and more. Stools hang suspended from tapered ceilings and tools clutter crowded workstations bursting with personality and purpose.
