Let’s face it, it’s smart and downright patriotic to buy products that are manufactured in the USA. Imagine my delight, then, when I saw the MSN Money Web article titled, “10 Cool ‘Made in USA’ Products”. The items featured were arranged alphabetically – page by page – beginning with Antho products for body and home; and I looked forward to nearing the final listed items. Surely I would find University Loft’s made-in-America student dorm room furniture there, right? Sadly, no. What an oversight!
Oh, sure, the MSN Money article featured some great products – everything from Badger sunscreens to Beardition grooming products for men to Loggerhead apparel to Tervis Tumblers’ insulated drinking glasses – but seriously, a list of “cool” made-in-the-USA products without University Loft? Unthinkable. Here’s why:
University Loft student dorm room furniture for college residence life is designed and constructed in the American heartland, at manufacturing facilities in Greenfield, Indiana and Morristown, Tennessee. And the best part of University Loft’s “Made in America” story is that we bring American ingenuity and superior quality construction to solid wood dorm room furniture. Using Environmentally Farmed Timber, the craftspersons in our American plants apply state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, like English dovetail joints and mortise and tenon construction.
And when it comes to cool… well, let’s just say that University Loft means it when we say that we are “makers of cool” student furniture. From our timeless modern residence life furniture designs to the myriad ways our modular student furniture can be arranged to maximize space in the dorm room, ULoft furniture is cool, indeed! So, what do you say, MSN Money? Time to amend your list? Obviously, at University Loft, we think so.
