I’m a sucker for the classics, not to mention a bargain, so when I found a Tetris® app for my Kindle Fire® on sale for ten cents, I downloaded it toot-sweet! It’s pretty darn addictive, of course, as millions of players can attest dating from the mid-1980s. In fact, it was around that same time when James Jannetides built his first loft-style furniture for his student residence at Southern Illinois University. Over the years, both Tetris and University Loft student furniture have proven to be classics and bargains. Here’s how University Loft – like Tetris – makes the pieces come together:
Like Tetris, students at colleges and universities with University Loft furniture in their on-campus residences can choose which pieces go where. With ULoft’s Tool-less System for custom configurations, each student, along with his or her roommate(s), can raise or lower the beds, place desks and dressers beneath loft beds or outside bunked arrangements, and on and on. The possibilities are virtually limitless, but the result is always the same: a college residence in perfect harmony with the students’ lifestyles.
Tetris has become a classic due to its simple, classic design and ease of use. Same for University Loft dorm room furniture. One difference stands out, however: while Tetris can be simple to play, it can be difficult or even impossible to truly master through all the levels. Not so with University Loft solid wood furniture for student housing. ULoft furniture is easy to assemble, configure, re-configure and enjoy as the perfect environment for student living. In other words, University Loft furniture is as easy to master as it is to enjoy.
Because University Loft student furniture uses dovetail drawer construction and mortise and tenon joints in its furniture fabrication, it’s built for superior strength and long-lasting enjoyment. Likewise, by using University Loft’s Tool-less System, the customizable furniture fits together perfectly time after time.
Yes, like Tetris, University Loft furniture for student residences has become a modern classic. I wonder how many students are playing Tetris right now in their University Loft-outfitted dorm room. (And I wonder if they realize how lucky they are?)
