Our replica Tolix stool is inspired by the original stools created by Xavier Pauchard in the 1930s. Having had great success with chairs he then went on to design what has since become an iconic stool.
Rumour has it that a local firm in France commissioned Pauchard to design stools for their factory workers. To meet the needs of all employees, the stools came in a variety of heights.
Our replica Tolix stools are manufactured in the same way as the original using sheet metal. Light and easy to maintain, their versatility is the reason that so many cafes and bars use them today.
Our small stools can also be used as side tables. By placing a tray on top of the seat and standing them alongside a sofa or tub chair, for instance, they’re a handy and compact alternative to a coffee table.
Practicality and comfort
Despite having been designed more than 80 years ago, a Tolix stool combines practicality and comfort in what is a clean, modern design. Some people say that the X shaped crossbars beneath the seat stand for Xavier Pauchard’s first name initial but in reality, they are there to provide additional support and strength to the framework.
Being made from steel, Tolix stools are strong yet lightweight and easy to move around to meet customers’ needs. They are also robust and can withstand practically anything that is thrown at them. In our opinion, the odd dent or two just adds character to what is already a stool that is brimming with personality.
Plenty of options
Here at Café Solutions, our replica Tolix stools are available to purchase in 3 heights – 46 cm, 66 cm and 76 cm. The smallest stool is intended to be used with a standard height café table, the medium stool works beneath a bar counter, and the tallest of the three is suitable for use with a poseur or dry bar table.
Our Tolix stools come in a variety of designs and colours, which you can check out below.
