What do I need to know about buying tolix chair cushions online?
Before you purchase cushions for tolix-style metal chairs, be sure to measure your chair. Our tolix chair cushion (shown on this page) is sized specially to fit most table-height Tolix chairs, which are about 14" x 14" (smaller than most traditional dining chairs), although some brands make industrial chairs with larger seats. Whether the seat is wooden or metal won't make a difference. You can view our Size Guide if you need help learning where to measure.
Once you know what size you need, you should consider if the cushions will be used in the kitchen dining room or on the patio. If you're shopping for an outdoor dining table chair set, you'll need to invest in an outdoor cushion that is UV resistant and weather resistant. Our Rave tolix chair cushion is the only pattern that resists fading and is safe to leave outdoors.
We strongly recommend requesting fabric swatches before ordering home decor online. The way colors appear on your screen may differ than the way they appear in person, due to factors such as the angle at which you hold your screen, your display settings, and the brand or age of your device.
History of the Tolix Chair
You've seen them in cafes, outside bistros, and in stylish industrial decor homes from Brooklyn to San Francisco. Sometimes called metal farmhouse chairs, the splat back chairs with their iconic curved metal frame and industrial style legs are coming to be known as Tolix style chairs.
In 1934, French designer Xavier Pauchard introduced the "A Chair", which was produced in his workshop named The Tolix Company. An early adopter of the galvanization technique, Pachard's steel industrial chairs became ubiquitous in restaurants and eateries because they were affordable, durable, stackable, easy to clean, and suitable for indoor or outdoor dining al fresco. In recent years the chairs have made a comeback in modern homes.
