Meet the Tolix style metal chair, a replica of the classic 1934 design by Xavier Pauchard. Ours retains the practicality and comfort of the original, but we've made it in an up-to-date range of finishes for 21st Century interiors.
The designer of this classic bistro chair, Xavier Pauchard, started life as a zinc roofer. Through his work he found that he could protect metal household items from rusting by dipping them in the molten zinc he used to protect roofs, inaugurating one of the first methods of galvanization. He soon applied this to furniture, and over time, the Tolix chair was born.
Originally called the A chair, in 1956 he began selling it under the name Tolix to French cafes who were in need of a brand new, stylish, durable, and stackable chair. Since then it has become one of the most popular selling chairs of all time.
We think the Xavier Pauchard’s Tolix chair, with its matte or brightly coloured, glossy, powder-coated finish, is the perfect way to add energy and color to homes, restaurants or business premises.
Famous Designs is in no way affiliated with the company Tolix. Our furniture is inspired by the designs of Xavier Pauchard and not to be confused with those which are manufactured and sold by Tolix.
