Choose From 25 Models of Alumni Chairs

Before Alumni Chairs entered the college chairs market, only one style of wooden captain’s chair or alumni chair was available, regardless of the variety of styles of the homes and offices of our customers.  A single style of college  chair cannot possibly satisfy the needs and tastes of all alumni of hundreds of four-year colleges.  Therefore, we offer twenty-five models of handmade wood chairs – college chairs, benches, and stools and hundreds of variations.  By offering 25 chairs, we have something for everyone – great wooden college chairs for alumni as well as the best chairs for college students.

Alumni Chairs has always believed that Alumni and Friends of Colleges and Universities seek choices.  Our Classic College Chairs which are made by Amish Craftsmen are eventual heirlooms, because they are designed and constructed to last for generations. The joinery is engineered in order to ensure that the chairs will last and remain beautiful for many years.

Be aware that certain institutions may not offer all of our chair models of chairs.  Some institutions may offer one of our great captains chair wood, and others may wish to offer several styles of our college chairs to represent  their institution..
