If you seek a stylish, college traditional desk chair, our Captains Swivel Chair may fill the bill.  Attention to detail like no other college desk chair!

The Affinity Traditional Captain’s Swivel Chair (ATSC) is the finest College Swivel Desk Chair on the market.  Many college and universities promote somewhat similar university desk chairs, primarily because, until Affinity began making its Classic College Chairs, the only college chairs on the market were the traditional Windsor-style and Hitchcock-style chairs.  There are several brands of wooden captains swivel chairs and student desk chairs on the market, the most popular of which are made overseas and are imported for assembly.  Our captain’s swivel chair is built and finished individually by our primary fininsher whereas captains chairs of other companies are assembled and finished in a production-line.  Our college desk chair s are made in Columbiana County, Ohio where there is a longstanding tradition of hand-made, high-quality alumni furniture.  All bright gold highlights (hand striping) are painted by hand and brush.

These traditional desk chairs are the highest quality ATSC Chairs available with an excellent, adjustable, modern swivel base and mechanism.  The base incorporates a five-star steel base with solid-maple feet that cover the steel base and perfectly match the finish of this college desk chair.  The bases of our captain’s swivel chairs are attached to a metal gas cylinder which is attached to the seat of the chair, enabling this college office chair to rock, recline, and swivel 360 degrees.

Our Traditional College Chairs are all made of solid maple and solid cherry.  Our  Affinity Traditional Captain’s Swivel Chairs are most often ordered in our elegant Black Lacquer finish, but they may be ordered in part or entirely in other popular, attractive finishes.
