Affinity Traditional College Chairs are classic Windsor-style chairs the most popular of which is the Captain’s Chair.   These are the most soundly constructed Traditional College Chairs on the market.



Solid seating, hand painting, American woods, and traditional North Carolina craftsmanship.  Unlike other traditional college chairs, these Affinity Traditional College Chairs are 100% American Made in North Carolina.  These are American chairs, made with the best materials, most careful construction, and finest finish.  Logos can be screen printed, engraving filled with bright colors, or medallions inserted according to your preference.

Because of the difference between our Traditional and Classic architectures, our Traditional logo techniques include methods (engraving and screen-printing) that are not available in our Classic College Chairs.  However, both our Traditional College Chairs and Classic College Chairs can be installed with bright, colorful logos via our proprietary TrueColor Logos process with true Pantone™ Colors with additional expense.

Our Traditional chairs are most often ordered in our elegant Black Lacquer finish, but they may be ordered entirely or in part in one of three stains – Cherry, Light Maple, and Walnut:Note: When customers choose Arms, Crown, or an entire chair in any of these stains, we must consider the chair to be a custom chair.  We ask customers be certain of their color choices.  Any changes to color after a chair has been completed is costly.  Although Affinity Classic can likely make those changes, requests to change colors after delivery can only be satisfied at the expense of the customer, including labor, materials, shipping, and any other appropriate expenses.  Therefore, we always encourage customers to be certain of their color choices before ordering and discuss colors with us before ordering stained chairs and chair parts.

Other companies offer chairs that are not built in America or, specifically, in the North Carolina tradition.   Because of the nature of Windsor-style chair joinery, we are very careful to use the very best techniques, materials, and glues to ensure that your Traditional College Chairs will ensure many years of use and will serve your family as heirlooms for generations.  These fine traditional collegiate chairs are hand built and hand painted, individually, with an exceptional level of detail.
