Raoul Textiles to Open State Street Showroom

Lee & Associates Central Coast represents all parties in the lease

New leasing activity on lower State Street brings world-renowned company Raoul Textiles to the fingertips of Santa Barbara locals and tourists.

Stephen Leider and Jarod King of Lee & Associates Central Coast represented all parties in the lease of 3,800 square feet of retail space to the Santa Barbara-based company.

Soon to be located at 136 State St., Raoul Textiles will bring its signature style and quality fabrics to the new showroom for all to enjoy.

Sally McQuillan started the company in 1981 with her late husband, Tim McQuillan, and has gone on to receive several design awards and accolades for her “fiercely inventive” fabrics. Traditionally, only high-end designers have had access to her innovative designs through the Pacific Design Center showroom in Los Angeles, which is the company’s only other retail outlet. However, the new showroom aims to capture the retail market for their products, providing universal access to these hand-crafted textiles.

In addition to the owners’ excitement of having their space at 136 State St. rented, they are happy to have such a fabulous tenant. The deal signifies that the long-struggling beach end of State Street is showing signs of life. Even with the challenges of uncertainty created by the La Entrada property, as well as the economy, the company looks forward to its newest debut in such a landmark building, while equally bringing synergy to the area.

Lee & Associates Central Coast provides high-quality commercial real estate brokerage services, with offices in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
