Every few years there is another “reboot” of the venerable Superman franchise on film or TV. Recently, it was “Man of Steel” starring England’s Henry Cavill as the titular hero. And every time I hear of such super strength, I am reminded of the quality construction of University Loft Company’s furniture for college dorm rooms. You might call it “Furniture of Steel” (even though it’s made from super-strong solid wood).
About that wood: University Loft’s college residence life furniture is made from hardwood that’s not only stronger than Northern Red Oak (independent testing proved it!); it’s also environmentally friendly because it grows faster than oak and can be tapped for sap (used in latex production) while it grows. Better for the planet AND stronger for college furniture? That’s downright SUPER!
Of course, we don’t stop there. University Loft uses only the best furniture construction techniques so our dorm room and residence hall furniture stands up to the daily wear and tear of super-destructive college students. For example, our English dovetail construction – couples with corner drawer blocks – makes our desk and dresser drawers virtually indestructable. Our loft beds are available with 3-inch square bed posts, too, for steady and sturdy down time in the dorm room.
Yes, college dorm room bunk beds and residence life furniture from University Loft have a lot in common with the Man of Steel. Except, of course, that kryptonite has no effect on the strength of our solid wood student furniture.
