Why we love the Tolix barstool

This isn't just any typical barstool - but you might have already guessed that. We usually associate barstools with fancy cocktail bars, city apartment kitchens and casinos. Not warehouses! However, this Tolix design gives a whole new meaning to the traditional barstool. You may have heard of 'Tolix' before, especially if you're interested in interior design. Back in the 1930s, the original Tolix chair was born, designed by a French zinc roofer. It's quite a story but one that brings us to this beautiful barstool today. Here is what we love about it:

It's smaller than you'd expect

The Tolix barstool stands at 76cm high and as it's fixed height, it doesn't move up or down with an adjustable gas lift. It's also available in a low style which measures at just 65cm. So, you'll easily be able to slide it under your counter for a neat appearance. Not only that, but it's super handy to fit into smaller spaces if you want extra seating or somewhere to store it. Don't forget though, it's still a barstool so you'll be able to enjoy your morning coffee at the breakfast bar or an evening drink at your home bar!

It is hard-wearing and durable

You probably could have guessed this from just looking at it! However, we thought we'd tell you anyway. The Tolix barstool is super hard-wearing and durable - perfect for hectic households and those who just can't be doing with easily-damaged furniture. Inspired by the zinc roofing industry, the original designer Xavier Pauchard wanted to protect furniture with an additional coating. So, it's no surprise that, still to this day, you can count on Tolix furniture to be pretty damage-proof.

It comes in a range of colours

But forget practicality for a minute. You care about style too, right? Good news for those who like to get their interiors co-ordinated! The Tolix barstool comes in four different shades, so you can find your perfect fit. Firstly, we've got 'clear' which is a dark grey metallic shade. Secondly, we have 'caprum' which is a gun-metal finish with an almost golden hue to it. Thirdly, we have 'rust' which is a dark grey-brown rustic look. And lastly, we've got 'silver' which is simply a high-shine silvery shade! We think you'll find something to suit your kitchen here, easily.

It's really unique

Again, this probably goes without saying. We stock a huge range of barstools on our website but this one definitely stands out in the crowd. The industrial look is set to be massive next year and we can only see it getting more popular. You'll certainly turn heads with this style - it not only suits modern city apartments but rustic country cottages, too! It's unique and versatile. So, what are you waiting for?
