In the Hot Seat

The highly popular Tolix cafe chair can transform a room. Want to modernize, industrialize? Mix the Tolix with an antique farm table indoors or a rustic wood one outdoors.

It has been gracing gardens and French corner cafes for decades. Designed in 1934 by Xavier Pauchard, who revolutionized an industry with galvanized steel, it has entered into collections at the Pompidou Center and MOMA. Now considered a classic, the seating appears everywhere–open any style magazine… Here is where you can purchase the chair:

Truc (Tip): Despite its appearance on patios, do not expose to rain and snow–unless you don’t mind a little rust.
