Tolix chairs

Hus & Hem

Tolix chairs have been a favourite style of mine for ages. As you all know I am a huge lover of all things industrial, and this is the quintessential industrial chair. It was designed by Xavier Pauchard (1880-1948) who was a pioneer of galvanisation in France, and he registred the trademark TOLIX in 1927. His Marais A Chair became a standard of café seating in France. It is such a versatile chair - and such easy upkeep. And throw a faux sheepskin on it and WOWZERS! So here you are, a tribute to the Tolix chair. (P.S. I'm starting to think this would be a fabulous option for my dining room....)

Not a fan of the tolix chair or stool, find them very uncomfortable. But...I adore the paintings and the hanging light in the second picture.

Hi Kim,
I too LOVE Industrial and LOVE the look of the Tolix...so very sculptural! But, sadly, they are as uncomfortable as HELL. I haven't found a sheepskin or cushion that really did much to change that. Maybe, just a couple chairs as extra seating? How about hanging two on the wall Shaker style? Pull 'em down if you need to use 'em. I think that would look AWESOME! Stacked one above the other, if you've got the ceiling height...Oooh, I gave myself chills. HA!

you guys are depressing me :(
hanging on the wall is a cool idea. not sure I would have space though - still want to add one of my husband's vintage revamped floor standing radios, and a bar cart.....
