Butler Woodcrafters® introduces new line of student residential furniture

Jr Loft Rm 1 Jr Loft Rm 2 Loft Rm 4 double bed

Our new Merit Collection™ is a fresh, innovative line of student bedroom furniture featuring the company’s new, proprietary upscale laminate construction in Natural Oak, Medium Cherry, and Walnut finishes and graphite accent tops. The addition of the Merit Collection strategically positions Butler Woodcrafters among the few contract furniture manufacturers that offer both wood and laminate case goods for student housing.

Merit Collection will offer a comprehensive selection of coordinating student desks, bureaus, wardrobes, beds, and chairs. By design, the new line features desks with pullout expanded work surface trays, multiple drawers-and-shelves configurations, 110v power options with USB connectivity, and lockable electronics storage. Additional product features and options will be available for customization.

"Parent and student expectations for student living have risen dramatically in recent years," explains Larry Giaimo, president of Butler Woodcrafters. "It’s about incorporating flexibility and options that maximize student comfort and productivity within student living spaces but without sacrificing quality and durability. That’s exactly our focus and commitment, and the Merit Collection will offer a better alternative for facilities managers."
