If you follow auto racing like I do, you’ve probably witnessed a few fantastic finishes. Some races end with two cars virtually tied, the winner just a nose ahead of the second place finisher. Sometimes the winner charges from the back of the pack to take the checkered flag ahead of the rest of the field, proving the adage: it’s not how you start that matters; it’s how you finish. At University Loft, we know that all the care and craftsmanship we build into our solid wood furniture for university housing — a great start, to be sure — wouldn’t matter as much if our student furniture didn’t look great and wear well.
Green flag start:
ULoft’s furniture for college residences begins with Environmentally Farmed Timber from Malaysia, a solid wood that is stronger than northern red oak, the gold standard for furniture strength and durability. We then add state-of-the-art construction features and techniques like corner blocks in our dorm room dressers and interlocking dovetail joints for superior strength. Building on this solid start, we head for the finish line with safe and stylish wood finishes and fabrics.
All University Loft furniture coatings are compliant with U.S. Federal Regulation 16CFR1303 for acceptable lead content suitable for exposure to children. ULoft’s foam filling and padding meets CAL TB117 standards to ensure that the fabric will not catch fire if exposed to smoldering cigarettes or a small open flame.
Looking good at the finish line:
Of course, what you’ll notice first when you lay eyes on University Loft college housing furniture are the attractive finishes and fabrics. Among our finishes for student dorm room furniture are Natural, Wild Cherry, Merlot, Kensington Maple, Cafelle, and Midnight Espresso. (Not all finishes may be available for all series, but whatever finish you choose will look great.)
Coupled with a great wood finish, a wide range of durable fabrics complete the look. We have dozens of fabric choices available for furniture used in student lounge and common areas; and many of these are also available for seating in individual student residence rooms.
Sure, University Loft builds environmentally friendly furniture that’s strong and built to withstand the student housing environment. But we also take pride in our fantastic finishes and stylish fabric. So take a good look at our, well, our good looking student furniture. Nothing but winners, don’t you agree?
