Back to school in style
It seems like the school year just let out, but here we are already half way through the summer. That means that for most colleges and universities, back to school is just a little over a month away. Whether it’s freshman year or senior year, now’s a great time to start thinking about dorm room layout. Just like Jaxx products can turn a spare bedroom into a multipurpose room, so too can they fill multiple roles in a dorm room.
The furniture composition in an average dorm room consists of a bed, desk, office chair and a love seat, papasan or futon. This is pretty limiting, but most people think that’s the best they can do given the small space. The desk and bed are standard issue with the room, so let’s think about the seating. College is a time for fun and sometimes friends crash in other friend’s rooms after a late night of socializing or studying. Futons are extremely uncomfortable, papasans don’t allow you to lay flat and a love seat is too short for most people.
Instead of those three options, try a Jaxx Club Lounger or a Jaxx Grand Lounger instead. At six feet long, the Jaxx Club will fit into the same space as a love seat or futon. Because it’s not rigid, it can also squeezed into a smaller space. The same thing goes for the Grand Lounger – even though it’s 7.5 feet long, it can squeezed into a slightly smaller space as well. The Jaxx 6ft Sac may also work nicely.
The advantage of these products is that they are way more comfortable than the alternatives and more easily double as a guest bed. If you squeezed the product into a smaller space, just pull it out into the open and allow it to expand for a longer sleeping space. These two products also make for great, adjustable seating that will keep friends returning for the best seats on campus. And while you can’t pull your futon or loveseat around the room, Jaxx products are easily portable for seating wherever you may need it for a given occasion. Have a little extra space somewhere? Throw in a Jaxx Palermo for cool, comfy and portable seating.
Instead of a traditional desk chair, consider a Jaxx Solo. Filled with traditional polystyrene beads, it has a classic bean bag feel. More importantly, the beads allow you to mold the product into different shapes. Once you sit down, they collect into a dense, yet comfy mass that maintains it’s shape. This makes it ideal for sitting at chair height because you won’t sink into it. Its versatility also means you won’t be stuck using it only as a desk chair. Lay it flat for a place to read on the floor or turn it into comfy seating for visitors. It’s also very light, making it ideal for travel to other dorm rooms for your own special place to sit when visiting friends. All Jaxx products come in a variety of stylish colors so they are easy to match up to any style or decor – even in a dorm room. And don’t stop with these suggestions – the site is filled with possibilities!
