The Tolix Chair

The Tolix Chair-Wedding Furniture’s perennially popular Bella Chair is inspired by a true furniture icon– The Tolix chair, which combines durable practicality with timeless French industrial metal style.

Who invented the Tolix chair?

The original Tolix chair was designed by Xavier Pauchard in 1934. Pauchard’s father and grandfather were zinc roofers. And it was through his metal-related expertise that in 1907 Pauchard discovered it was possible to protect sheet metal from rusting either by dipping it in molten zinc or galvanising it.

Ten years after making this discovery. Pauchard set up his own factory manufacturing steel household goods under the brand name Tolix. Which is still operational today. The 1934 Tolix chair, which was known as the Model A, was designed for indoor use as well as all-weather outdoor use, which is why it features holes in the seats for the rain to drain off. However, despite its instant appeal among café and bistro owners across France. They complained that the chairs were impractical as they wouldn’t stack properly. Taking this feedback on board, a slimmer-framed, stackable Tolix chair which could be stacked 25 chairs high to 2.3 metres, was launched in 1956. The chair’s popularity went from strength to strength, being used in factories, hospitals and offices as well as hospitality settings.

Since then, the Tolix chair has become a worldwide favourite in restaurants, bars and homes thanks to its hardwearing retro chic. Indeed, such is the iconic status of the design that examples are on display in New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Paris’s Pompidou Centre.

The Tolix legacy

Today, Tolix chairs, which are still manufactured from rugged steel, are available for around $250. While this is a great opportunity to own an original piece of design for those with money to burn or for collectors of fine furniture. But it is not a practical or affordable option for the hospitality industry. Luckily, there are plenty of Tolix-inspired options available, including our hugely popular Bella range.
