When you are ready to order chairs, there are two primary ways to do so.
(1) Purchase through this website using the Cart and the Checkout functions.
(a) This works for ordering chairs representing any of the colleges and universities specifically listed under the menu choices on page “INSTITUTIONS“. You may order directly from the page specializing in the school of your choice (Ohio State, Dartmouth, or another college). When you find your college and the chair of your interest, hover over the chair’s image and click on the red circle with the “+” sign. Then look down the page, read the description of the chair, and find the the drop-down menus (one, two, or three drop-down arrows, depending on the chair model). In the West Point AMRC example below, there are two choices: “Finish-Wood” and Upholstery”. Make your choices and see your price change below.
(b) This also works for ORDERING CHAIRS WITHOUT LOGOS…and we have many. If you want a chair with no logos (to be found on the “MOST INSTITUTIONS & PRICES” page), you may order directly from the page. When you scroll down the page and find your chair of interest, hover over the chair’s image and click on the red or blue circle with the “+” sign. Then, look down the page, read the description of the chair, and find the the drop-down menus (one, two, or three drop-down arrows, depending on the chair model). When you have made choices of options (features), you will see a price reflecting that chair with those options. For the Affinity Mission Rocking Chair, for example, there are two choices: “Finish-Wood” and “Upholstery”. Make your choices and see your price change below.
In both cases, to the right of the updated price (in red), appear two buttons: “ADD TO CART” and “INQUIRE”. Before you click on “ADD TO CART”, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have. The “INQUIRE” button will bring up a special form with which you can request information or ask us to contact you to discuss the details of your intended order.
There are many important features that we should discuss before you order a chair: wood, finish, logos, personalization, pricing, time frame, shipping, delivery, and other matters. So, please use the Inquire button.
(2) Let us help you make your order.
To order chairs that represent other schools, nonprofits, businesses, colleges, and universities…or chairs with no royalties…or chairs with no logos, it will be best to work with us, directly.
Also, Miniature Chairs also require some special attention. We will help you with that order process.
Before you call us, you can find the approximate price of your chairs, on your own. Just click on the top “Institutions” tab (on main menu) and, then, click “MOST INSTITUTIONS & PRICES” (lower right corner of the menu under “INSTITUTIONS”), one can find pricing for chairs that involve no royalty fees – as is the case of most nonprofit organizations, businesses, schools, and many colleges and universities. Be aware that, although you can obtain an approximate price, we may need to charge a royalty fee as required by certain colleges and universities.
If you do not want a logo on your chair, that approximate price will be fairly close to the final price, because there will be no royalty fees.
If you want a logo on your chair for a school that is not listed on our website, we will need to discuss the art with you, discuss permission from the institution, obtain the art, and inform you of any royalty fees that may apply.
Regardless, we will need to speak with you to make sure that you get exactly what you want and we work with the protected trademarks (logos) properly.
