If you are shopping for a new car, do you still kick the tires? Even if putting toe to rubber doesn’t really tell you much about the overall quality of the vehicle, the phrase “kicking the tires” is more about personal testing to make sure it will hold up over time. When it comes to student dorm room and residence hall furniture, at University Loft Company, we invite you to kick away!
Actually, “Kicking the tires” isn’t as far afield from testing University Loft’s solid wood furniture for college as you might think. You see, our dorm room furniture is made from Hevea Brasiliensis, an environmentally-farmed timber that is a type of hardwood rubber tree! No, the wood itself isn’t rubbery, but the HB trees we farm and harvest in an environmentally responsible way do produce a type of sap used in the production of latex. But the best news about the HB wood used in University Loft student furniture is that it is actually stronger than the Northern Red Oak our competitors use!
With superior student furniture material and superior construction techniques like English dovetail joints in our desk and dresser drawers, and you can see why University Loft’s solid wood furniture for college students can take whatever strength and durability test you inflict upon it.
Now, ain’t that a kick?
