Designer Xavier Pauchard (Burgandy 1880-1948)
Since its introduction in 1934, the Xavier Pauchard Tolix stool has been a design standard. Our Relax House replica, pictured here in natural, galvanized steel finish, is likewise a well loved piece among our customers and it is easy to see why. Xavier Pauchard created this recognizable metal furniture line, constructed from sheet metal, in 1934 for Tolix. While today Pauchard’s iconic chair and stool may conjure images of French farm houses and Parisian cafes, the Tolix was a staple piece for bars, bistros, schools and hospitals.
French brewers often supplied these stools to bars in the 1930s in exchange for selling their beer so these stools were so common a sight that they were almost like a uniform in the bars and brasseries around France. Imagine a night club in the 1930s: Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald down drink after drink while perched upon an Xavier Pauchard stool just like this one while Josephine Baker and Edith Piaf performed on stage.
