It Was a Stark and Dormy Night? The University Loft College Furniture Story is One of Style AND Substance.

Stark and Dormy Night? Not with University Loft College FurnitureStark and dormy? Yes, you read that right (even if it is oh-so-wrong). It’s a play on words, of course, inspired by the dubious classic line, “It was a dark and stormy night” that opens Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s 1830 novel, Paul Clifford. The often parodied line is the quintessential example of flowery language that’s heavy on presumed “style” with little substance to support it. Quite the opposite, if you ask me, from the story of University Loft’s furniture for college students. ULoft student furniture is a classic example of style AND substance:

When it comes to style, University Loft modular furniture for student residences is always contemporary – the kind of timeless design that makes a classic. The first thing to notice when “reading” University Loft dorm room furniture are the attractive finishes and fabrics, including the ever-popular Natural, along with Wild Cherry, Merlot, and others. (Not all finishes may be available for all furniture style series, of course). The next chapter in University Loft furniture style includes our fabric choices. While some student rooms might not use fabric on student seating, we have dozens of available fabrics for use on ULoft furniture for student lounge and common areas. We even offer replaceable fabrics with Velcro® attachments in many of our student lounge furniture pieces.

Beneath that clean, classic and contemporary style, of course, is the substance of University Loft student furniture: ultra-strong and environmentally-friendly solid wood joined with the industry’s best construction techniques, like English dovetail joints.

Speaking of English, wasn’t Edward Bulwer-Lytton a Baron in jolly olde…

But I digress.

The University Loft college furniture story has a very happy ending, of course, but only for those students whose colleges and universities choose University Loft dorm room and student housing furniture. Style. Substance. A very satisfying piece of work, indeed.
