Gotta admit it: I’m a Seinfeld fanatic. So when I saw recently that a Seinfeld reunion was in the works (albeit as a long-form Super Bowl commercial), it got me to thinking about the core four of Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer. They were “besties” to the bitter end and always had a unique way of looking at – and taking on – the world. And because much of the activity on this classic sitcom took place in a single room (Jerry’s apartment), I started wondering how the four friends might have acted – and what they might have said – if they had come together at college and congregated with Jerry and the University Loft furniture in his dorm room…
For example, the college dorm room is more than just a place for studying and sleeping; it’s also a gathering place for you and your buds. Now, you might think that as tiny as most dorm rooms are (shrinkage, anyone?), that you’d all have to be “close talkers”. But with University Loft college furniture in the residence hall, you’ll have extra space thanks to our modular space-saving furniture. In other words, you can move your beds up or down to make space. So instead of being a “close talker”, you can also be a “low talker” or “high talker”.
And imagine what someone might say entering the dorm room for the first time. They might just take a look at the timelessly modern University Loft student furniture and say, in classic Seinfeld fashion, “You are SO good looking.”
Upon close examination of the material in ULoft college furniture, specifically our solid hardwood that is environmentally farmed and environmentally friendly, perhaps Jerry’s girlfriend du jour might even say, “It’s real, and it’s spectacular!” She’d be right, too, because our wood is stronger than Northern Red Oak and way more attractive than any obtrusive kitchen makeover in a certain New York apartment.
At the end of the day on campus, I can imagine Jerry lowering his head to his University Loft student bunk bed and – shortly after Mr. Marbles scurries past – saying, “Serenity Now.”
