Here in Indiana, we have lots of great attractions, including the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the world’s largest Children’s Museum, and the very real town of Santa Claus. We are also home to the world’s largest ball of paint in Alexandria, Indiana. Ball of paint? Yes, a ball…(wait for it)…of paint. As balls of paint go, this one is, of course, huge. World record huge, weighing in at over 3,500 pounds and more than 42 inches in diameter with, as of this writing, over 23,000 coats. Big as it is, the BOP can still be housed in a shed. Imagine, then, how many balls of paint could be displayed in University Loft Company’s massive furniture factory, warehouse and showroom in Greenfield, Indiana!
Located near I-70, not far from Indianapolis, the University Loft production facility and warehouse are where we assemble, stock and ship University Loft’s solid wood modular furniture for student housing and college dorm rooms. Our student furniture is environmentally friendly – call it green furniture (there’s probably a few coats of green on that paint ball, eh?) – and it’s strong enough to withstand the wear and tear of college life.
Perhaps more impressive, however, is the incredible furniture showroom attached to the production facility and warehouse. The University Loft showroom boasts more than 58,000 sq. ft. of showcase displays. Here, among furniture displays for residential and hospitality markets, you can see the latest and most popular furniture for student housing in dorm room mockups so you can truly get a sense of how comfortable, functional and stylish residence hall and on-campus living can be.
ULoft’s showroom is bold, it’s colorful and it’s BIG! And while the world’s largest ball of paint is mighty impressive, I think the University Loft showroom also deserves notice as a must-see Indiana attraction. So whaddaya say? Up for a road trip? To schedule a factory/showroom tour, call (800) 423-LOFT today.
Now where did I put that rubber band ball I started last week?
