At University Loft Company, we’re pretty darn proud to say that our student dorm room furniture for college residence life is made in America. Some people say that this shouldn’t matter. We disagree. Here’s why:
American Ingenuity, the University Loft Way:
Ingenuity and innovation is what built University Loft. In fact, it was James Jannetides’s vision and execution in maximizing space in his Southern Illinois University dorm room that led to hundreds of thousands of students enjoying University Loft residence life furniture in their dorm rooms. Today, more than a quarter century later, University Loft continues to lead the way in product innovation and commitment to design excellence.
American Quality, the University Loft Way:
Speaking of excellence, we are sticklers for quality. That’s why we use super-strong solid hardwood that’s stronger than the Northern Red Oak that others hold up as the standard in furniture strength. We connect our solid wood pieces with state-of-the-art joining techniques: English dovetail and mortise-and-tenon joints. And at University Loft, we even add things like corner blocks in our dressers and desks for extra strength and stability. No more rickety furniture in the dorm room!
American Commitment to a Better World, the University Loft Way:
Finally, at University Loft, we’re proud that it’s an American trait to be concerned with the quality of life in the bigger world around us. That’s why we take environmental responsibility so seriously. And that’s why our charitable and philanthropic initiatives strike close to home and worlds away.
Ingenuity, quality and commitment: three American traits the innovators and craftspersons embody every day at University Loft Company. Want to see us in action? Visit our massive showroom and manufacturing facility in Greenfield, Indiana. Contact us today to arrange a visit.
