Tolix Chairs In All the Colors of the Rainbow

Tolix chairs are one of those rare designs that we never tire of seeing. That's partially because they are now available in so many different configurations that they adapt beautifully to each individual room.

The history of Tolix is long and interesting. In 1907 a Frenchman by the name of Xavier Pauchard discovered galvanization, which is the process of coating sheet metal in zinc to prevent rusting. He founded the Tolix company to make products using this method. His first chair looked remarkably similar to those still being produced today - and after decades of small tweaks, the famous Tolix chair was finalized in the 1950s to stack efficiently. In modern days, Tolix has been introduced in 22 colors and finishes, revitalizing the classic for a new generation.
