SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

You could travel to Europe to look at unique furniture for your home or simply walk into Onward,  a new Santa Barbara furnishings store.

The doors were recently opened by owner Mary Benenati, who has three decades of experience in interior furniture sales.

Some of the items on display come from France, England, Italy and Turkey.

There are also many samples of modern day wall coverings that have caught the eye of passersby at the store located at 1233 State St. near Victoria.

The store is expected to be a popular stop for shoppers during the First Thursday art walk parties.
