University Chair


Prices of Affinity Classics’ College Chairs range from $199 to $1,999 (plus  shipping) and depend on style, woods, finishes, logos, and the institutions being represented.  Each academic institution establishes unique requirements in order to license its trademarked images.  Chairs bearing college logos are subject to multiple cost components including, royalties, administrative fees, revenue sharing, logo art, woods, fabrics, finishes, personalization, and shipping policies.

You may find university chairs at slightly lower prices on the Internet, but be aware that those chairs are very likely milled and/or assembled in Asia.   Our customers choose Affinity Classics’ chairs because our chairs are made exclusively in America − in Ohio − and our chairs are of a higher quality.

Our chairs come with numerous options. Each university chair includes one logo installation; multiple logos are optional.  Therefore, we ask you to speak with us on the telephone about your college and university chairs, institution that the chair represents, chair’s availability, personalization, and shipping options.
