Tolix Chairs From Decoracion Facilisimo

Tolix chairs have been tremendously popular this last year, and in fact have been for the last several years.  The chair itself has never really gone out of style.  These chairs have been seen painted white, black, red, rusted out, and painted in bright vibrant paint colors.

The tolix chair was designed by a Frenchman in 1907, by the name of Xavier Pauchard.  His very first chair looked remarkably similar to those chairs we see all over the magazines today.  Pauchard used galvanization which is a process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron, in order to prevent rusting.  The most common method in current use is hot-dip galvanization, in which steel parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc.  Galvanizing is also favored as a means of protective coating because of its low cost, ease of application and comparatively long maintenance-free service life.

The tolix chairs are being re-produced by the top furniture companies and are being featured in almost every design magazine world wide.  They are being photographed both indoors and outdoors, and being used as a regular dining chair, and doubled as a patio chair.
