In this online article, MSN Money gives a brief profile of what it considers to be the “20 most innovative states in America”. Flipping through the slideshow state-after-state I kept hoping to see Indiana there. Alas, we didn’t make the cut. Why not? Clearly, the state of Indiana does not have enough companies like one company that was built on – and remains committed to – constant innovation: University Loft Company.
University Loft, headquartered in Greenfield, Indiana got its start in Illinois when our founder and CEO, James Jannetides, built his first loft bed at Southern Illinois University. That was back in the 1980s. From that single dorm room innovation a company dedicated to innovation was born. Today, University Loft college student furniture remains the choice of hundreds of colleges and universities in part because of the many design innovations we’ve pioneered.
For example, our Tool-less System makes it possible for University Loft student beds to transform from floor-level ho-hum sleeping platforms to loftable, bunkable, space-saving marvels. University Loft innovations go above and beyond this singular game-changer, of course. For example, our Wave Chair is an innovative wonder in ergonomic seating solutions that transforms from a desk chair to a gaming rocker to a laptop desk. And speaking of desks, Jannetides and University Loft have even created a swing-out mouse pad shelf.
Want another example of ULoft design innovation? Look no further than our RevLoc series of college lounge and library seating. The RevLoc series features replaceable Velcro® fabrics, slide-in tracks for the cushions AND locking cushion attachment cables (to keep the cushions from, um, wandering off).
Lots more innovations, lots of patents, lots of reasons to choose University Loft Company for your college student furniture solutions!
