Tuesday Tips

Nautical dining space and kitchen with hanging flags and marais chairsWe’ve all seen them, in fact, we’re certain a few of you even have these chairs in your home. Yes, we’re talking about the Marais A Chair or the Model A Chair or the Tolix Cafe Chair. This chair dates back to 1934 when metalworker Xavier Pauchard, the man responsible for bringing the process of steel galvanizing to France, created the first Model A Chair. Xavier originally created the chairs to be used in industrial settings such as factories or even on ships, but it was quickly adopted by French cafés. These chairs are made of metal and are known for their sturdy, reliable feel. This also allows them to hold up against the toughest outdoor weather or the wear and tear from constant indoor use. They’re perfect for a coastal home too! Match them with a rustic farm table or a sleek modern table and see how the Marais A Chair seamlessly blends with the decor. Get the perfect nautical feel by bringing these chairs into the dining space or take ’em to the backyard for long lasting seating space outside. Check out the pictures we’ve put in this post and see how designers have used them in each space. We’ve gathered a few different styles so you can get a feel for the chairs versatility.
