Xavier Pauchard (1880-1948) pioneered  galvanizing in France based in Burgundy, at Autun.  In 1927 he registered the name Tolix when he converted to the production of chairs, stools and  metal furniture.   The most recognised off the Tolix design is possibly the galvanised Model A chair  - which had become an icon of modern design.  Nothing says French cafe more than the Model A chair !!

My ideal kitchen table would be loaded with the Model A chair (in RED) with a few H stools for extra seating!!
