For Whom the Chair Tolls

I'm looking forward, as always, to the day when I have a big house with some outdoor space.  When I do, I am definitely buying some vintage Tolix chairs for around my table.  They were designed in 1934 by Xavier Pauchard who pioneered the process of galvanization in France.  The sturdy, stackable, and rustproof chair became popular in commercial offices as well as outdoor bistros and public parks.  As you can see from these images, they still work well in a multitude of spaces and are also available in colors and as stools.  As Martha might say, "they're a good thing."
