Did you know that there’s an actual term for the fear of long words? Ironically, it’s this: hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. Say that three times fast. Or not. There are lots of terms that denote one kind of fear or another. You probably recognize claustrophobia (fear of being closed in or confined in a tight space), acrophobia (fear of heights), arachnophobia (fear of spiders), and technophobia (fear of technology). But is there a term to describe your fear of making the wrong choice in student furniture for on-campus university housing? Actually there are several that might apply, compliments of the University Loft student furniture lexicon:
Sadplanetophobia: the fear of choosing student furniture that isn’t “green” or environmentally friendly. The cure: University Loft green student furniture. ULoft’s solid wood student furniture is made from Hevea Brasiliensis (HB), a type of Environmentally-Farmed Timber (EFT) that is fast-growing, easily replenished through reforestation and can be tapped for a rubber-type of sap used in latex production. Best of all, HB is as attractive as oak and even stronger!
Shakyloftophobia: the fear of choosing student furniture that’s not well-built. The cure: University Loft furniture for student housing. ULoft’s solid wood student furniture uses only the best construction techniques, like English dovetail joints in desk and dresser drawers, and mortise and tenon joints in our Two-Position Chair. And did you know that University Loft student beds have been tested and shown to withstand up to 4 tons of pressure? It’s true!
Stuckinplaceophobia: the fear of choosing student furniture that can’t be configured to meet your unique student residence space-planning needs. The cure: University Loft student furniture. ULoft’s solid wood university furniture is modular. It can easily be configured in dozens of arrangements to suit the space and lifestyle needs of dorm room roommates and on-campus students everywhere.
All of these fears can be summed up in one bigger phobia: shouldapickedULOFTophobia. The cure, of course, is to be bold and fearless and choose University Loft solid wood modular student furniture for university housing. You’ve got enough worries. Buying the wrong student furniture doesn’t have to be one of them. So relax, have no fear, and choose student furniture from University Loft!
