Look-alikes Come and Go, But There’s Only One University Loft

I recently ran across an article that told of the time when beloved entertainer Dolly Parton lost a Dolly Parton look-alike contest. Yes, she lost a contest because she somehow did not look enough like herself to the judges. It made me realize that there are often imposters and wanna-bes in all facets of life; and when it comes to college residence life furniture for student dorm rooms, there are many companies that – well, they wanna be like University Loft Company. Truth is, though, there’s just one University Loft. We’re an American original. Here’s why:

University Loft Company was founded in innovation. In fact the first University Loft student loft furniture system was born in a dorm room when James Jannetides got the inspiration while a student at Southern Illinois University. A short time later, University Loft Company was born; and now, for more than 25 years, we’ve been a leading global supplier of modular college furnishings.

Even today, University Loft is still in the American heartland. Most of our college furniture is made in the USA and shipped worldwide so students everywhere can benefit from ULoft furniture’s superior strength, quality and performance.
