You’re probably familiar with Tolix chairs since they’re extremely popular in cafes, bars, and restaurants worldwide. Considering their history dates back to 1939 when they were first designed by Frenchman, Xavier Pauchard, it’s true to say that he hit on a real winner with the design and the material used for the chairs.
In fact Xavier Pauchard used galvanised steel in the production of these chairs for the simple fact that it didn’t rust. At first they were mostly used as utilitarian furniture and could be found in schools and hospitals, before being adopted by bistros and cafes. They were intended for outdoor use and had holes on the seats which were to allow the rainwater to drain quickly off them. Nowadays, however, they’re also a popular choice of indoor chair.
So why are Tolix chairs so popular? What are their benefits?
Strong and stackable
These quirky chairs are made from steel which is lightweight yet strong and allows you to move them around with ease whenever the needs of your business dicate. They’re also stackable which makes for convenient storage, especially if you want to use your floor space for other purposes.
Any thriving business requires chairs that can be maintained with very little effort and this is certainly true of Tolix chairs. It’s not often that you can say that a dent or scratch adds to the appearance of your furniture, but in the case of Tolix, it really does add character. Not only that, these chairs can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild cleansing agent to remove any spills ro food debris.
What we love most about these chairs is the range of colours available. With a rainbow of vibant colours including red, yellow, blue, and green and gorgeous metallic sheens, as well as black and white, it’s a doddle finding a colour to match your theme or décor.
Our replica Tolix chairs are also available with timber seats which makes it easier to team them with timber tables too. If you’re wanting bar stools to match, then you’ll also find that our Tolix stools come in three different heights and again, a wide variety of colours enabling you to mix and match to your heart’s content.
Finally Tolix chairs with their vibrant colours nake perfect accent pieces if you have a neutral palette. Just imagine bright red Tolix chairs sat around white tables for a real pop of colour? Or how about alternating colours sat around communal timber dining tables – beautiful!
