Many people know the story of how Stripe came to be, but few people know the history of the design services. Stripe Design Services was founded in 2005, after Suna Lock moved to Santa Cruz from the UK, and quickly established itself as a contender in the local commercial and residential design scene. The store opened in 2009, as a partnership between Suna and Dana Rader, and they have shared a space ever since. As the design service and the store have expanded and grown, our lovely office nestled above the retail operation has become a little too cozy.
We are excited to announce that we are moving to a new space this year. Don’t worry we aren’t straying too far from the stores, just around the block to 1205 Pacific Avenue. We can’t wait to show you the new space as it becomes complete, so follow along here on our blog, Pinterest, and Instagram to see our new studio. To all of our clients past, present, and future: thank you. We are grateful for the support of the local community and excited to continue working in our beautiful downtown.
