Respace Design began with a leap of faith. Owner, Jonathan Sara, quit his job and began building and selling at a local market making custom furniture out of his garage. He began taking on jobs others turned down because of complexity which allowed him to overcome engineering blockages and create functional artistry in the process. Now based out of The Starline Factory in Harvard, IL, Johnathan creates a wide variety of custom furniture for clients in Madison, Rockford, Chicago's North Shore and anywhere in between. Many of the materials Johnathan uses are reclaimed and reused because he is proud to give something a second life when possible. When this isn't an option he tries his hardest to work with local vendors to help build relationships with other small businesses. Respace has now gone mobile! Johnathan converted a horse trailer into a mobile shop that supports nearly all of the work they do. This allows Johnathan to work on site at jobs and he hopes to use it in disaster relief efforts in the future.
