Even College is a School of Hard Knocks (but ULoft Furniture Can Help You Handle Them)

The term, “school of hard knocks,” is often used as a metaphor for the tough lessons (and eventual wisdom) that life has to offer. Saying you were educated in the venerable School of Hard Knocks might mean that you learned life lessons in the, ahem, “real world”. But as any university student will attest, college can be pretty rough, too. School of Hard KnocksFortunately, University Loft dorm room furniture can help make university living — and learning — easier, more comfortable and productive. You see, ULoft furniture is durable and built to take the hard-knock wear and tear that college students naturally dole out. What do I mean? Let’s take a closer look at some University Loft dorm room furnishings, piece by piece:

That dorm room desk is made from solid Environmentally Farmed Timber that is stronger than red oak. Seriously. The two-position desk chair? Again, solid wood and specially designed and formed to let you sit up or rock back without losing your balance or weakening the chair construction. Even the upholstery is designed to last for years.

What about that dorm room dresser? Again, solid wood, with drawers constructed using dovetail joints, corner support blocks and super strong drawer glide rails. And the bed? There’s that solid wood again, this time coupled with a 9-gauge metal spring unit with center support bar.

So remember, even in the collegiate School of Hard Knocks, strong and stylish University Loft furniture can help you withstand the tough times.
