- Our Story
Dear Friends, Customers and Visitors,
I started The Bunk & Loft Factory in 2002 after I found myself looking for a job but really wanting to build a business of my own. Being a father of three at the time I could easily see the lack of affordable, sturdy furniture for kids and the very limited offerings in our local stores. It was just about impossible to find a well-made bed you liked in a color you liked with coordinating dressers, desks and bookcases that fit your needs and your room.
So, I borrowed a little from family and from my retirement account and set up shop on the north side of Columbus. We got the word out about our solid wood, handcrafted, built-to-order furniture and found that a lot of other folks in the Columbus area had the same needs that my family did. We ended that first year with a full schedule and a staff of 7 in our little 5,000 square foot shop and showroom.
Today we have a crew of 17 people in a much larger 20,000 square foot shop and we ship our furniture nationally and even to other countries. We get a tremendous amount of business from customer referrals and repeat purchases which tells us we are doing some pretty good work, and we take great pride in offering not only high quality but a great value to our customers and their families.
And we do it all in the USA with lumber and finishes exclusively from the USA, which frankly makes me very happy.
I and everyone else at the Bunk & Loft Factory look forward to designing and building the perfect bedroom for your family, and we are grateful for all the trust and confidence our customers show when they order from us.
With Kindest Regards,
Chris Arens, Owner
