Some of these are iron chairs with old textures, and you must have seen them in a coffee shop or restaurant.

These chairs were actually from its birth to now nearly a century!

The designer was Xavier Pouchard, a Frenchman born in 1880.

In France, Pouchard was the first to galvanize iron objects, and in 1927 he founded Tolix, a brand, to produce these galvanized iron objects.

These iron table chairs are still popular today.
