Ever hear the saying, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish”? On the one hand, it’s an inspirational message that encourages determination, learning from mistakes and perseverance. On the other hand, it implies that you can make up for a rocky start with a strong finish. At University Loft, we prefer to think that building the best quality college student furniture is a commitment that must be maintained throughout the student furniture crafting process.
For University Loft, building the best student residence life furniture starts with the materials we use. And our student furniture materials are simply the best: environmentally-farmed timber that’s been proven in independent testing to be strong than Northern Red Oak.
Once this hard wood is harvested and milled, University Loft furniture crafters right here in America work to the exacting manufacturing standards of The Toyota Way. This furniture manufacturing philosophy is all about quality first, along with efficiency.
The tools and techniques we use in building our student dorm room furniture is state-of-the-art, too. We use just the right combination of high-tech machinery, skilled human craftsmanship, and the best furniture construction techniques, like English dovetail and mortise-and-tenon joints.
Top it off with durable and appealing finishes and fabrics, and it’s a winning combination, indeed. After all, the way University Loft builds college furniture is all about quality. Start to finish.
