American pride is important when choosing the furniture your college student will live with night and day on campus. Of course, choosing American made would be a mistake if the residence life furniture weren’t made from the best materials and using the best construction techniques. Lucky for you that University Loft Company, which manufactures college student furniture in Greenfield, Indiana, is not only home-grown; it’s also the strongest and most durable university furniture around!
We start with a nicely grained hardwood with a funny name: Hevea Brasiliensis. This “HB” wood is environmentally farmed timber. It’s super strong (way stronger than Northern Red Oak), but it also grows three times as fast. This means we can grow it, harvest it and replant it three times while a single oak tree matures. Because of this, we can use one-third the land for timber production that other furniture companies do. And even though this eco-responsible hardwood is grown in Brazil, we bring it to America to produce top-quality college dorm room furniture.
In our Greenfield college furniture factory, we use only the best construction techniques. Methods like mortise-and-tenon joints in our Two-Position Chairs, and English Dovetail Joints in our desks and dressers. Our dressers also use corner blocks for extra no-wobble stability. Even our dorm room loft beds are built to handle dorm room “destructos” with oversized 3-inch bed posts included in most of our college bunk beds.
And did I mention that University Loft college furniture is made from solid wood? Yep, our HB hardwood is solid, man, solid. It’s the American Way, right? Well, maybe not for some college furniture manufacturers, but it is for University Loft.
So we encourage you to look for and buy American-made dorm room furniture. If you do, we’re pretty darn confident you’ll like what you see with University Loft’s solid-wood-made-in-the-USA college furniture!
