You might be under the impression that Tolix stools or chairs are a little antiquated especially if you’re looking for cafe furniture that fits in with a modern, contemporary theme. You might even choose to ignore them completely in favour of something more cutting edge. However, despite the fact that Tolix bar stools and chairs have been around since the 1930’s, you may be surprised to learn that they’re still very much as popular today as they were when they were first brought to the market over 80 years ago. If you’re still not convinced, then here are 2 other reasons why you really shouldn’t discount Tolix furniture for your venue.
They’re built to last
Okay, okay, so you hear this phrase all the time but trust me – when it comes to commercial grade cafe furniture Tolix stools and chairs really do stand in a class of their own. Xavier Pauchard the designer of the original Tolix chair originally owned a galvanised metal factory and he started life manufacturing hard wearing steel products. In 1934 he turned his attention to furniture and in that same year the world’s first all-weather chair was born. To this day that very same chair is being made and still contains drain holes in the seat for the rain to escape from. Altogether the Tolix stool is made from galvanised, factory-welded steel and is completely weatherproof, scratch resistant and heat proof. They’re strong and sturdy and yes you’ve guessed it – built to last.
They’re fabulously versatile
You’ve only got to look at a Tolix bar stool or chair to know just how contemporary they still are. That whole industrialised stainless steel ethos fits right in with the same cutting edge theme seen in many bars and café’s around the world. Place a couple of galvanised steel Tolix chairs underneath a copper coloured table complete with surrounding exposed brickwork and pipes and you’ve instantly re-created the industrial look in a nutshell.
Okay, so industrial is good but what if you want to go modern-funky or even rustic? Why not try funking up a Tolix chair with some brightly coloured cushions, or purchasing a variety of them in varying shades of brightness (yes they come in a rainbow of differing colours). Then pair them up for a cacophony of brightness that would make even a Jackson Pollock painting seem dull by comparison.
Finally, if it’s rusticity you’re after then it doesn’t come more rustic than a copper coloured Tolix stool sat behind a dark wooden bar. Rustic, funky, or just plain raw-industrial, the Tolix chair is about as versatile as a piece of commercial furniture can be.
So there you have it. Now you know just how good the Tolix stool can be you’ll probably never look at one in the same way again.
