When Xavier Pauchard first created the Tolix range in 1934, he didn’t know he would be creating the most popular range of bar and cafe furniture the world over. A pioneer in Galvanised metal production in France, post WW1, Pauchard would have a vision for domestic items created under his Tolix trademark.
Stools, chairs and tables would soon be in high demand for public spaces much more so than for the home. The durability and hardiness of chairs made them the practical choice for business. The Tolix Chair even had holes for water drainage making them ideal for outdoors. The range would undergo further tweaks to stack better and the classic version we know today first appeared in 1956.
Today no matter what part of the world you’re in, the chances of you having never sat on a Tolix stool or chair are marginal. Originals still fly off the shelves and replicas sell in even greater numbers. Available today as ever from Tolix.
