Tolix 1930s A Chair and A56 Chair by Xavier Pauchard

Tolix

Timeless classics that are good for both indoors and outdoors – the Tolix A Chair and A56 Chair by Xavier Pauchard.

Both were designed in 1934 by Pauchard, specifically to serve the huge number of French cafes, either as a high-back chair or something more like an armchair.

Both are constructed the same way, differing whether you want to use indoors or out. The indoors versions are made of raw steel with a matt or glossy painted finish, the outdoor seats with a galvanised matt or varnished finish. Lots of colours to choose from, with prices starting at £163.

Fairbridge Glasgow classic cafes calendar

Fairbridge cafe calendar

Walk down the high street in a British town and it's easy to get depressed about all the chain stores. Celebrate some unique eateries with this Glasgow classic cafes calendar. It contains lovely black and white photographs taken by young people working with the Fairbridge charity in the city. 

People who know Glasgow will be able to recognise many of the places such as Boni's cafeteria or Tomasso's but it's got enough Formica tables, classic condiments and great retro signs to satisfy any connoisseur of the humble caff. 

You can see more of the photographs they took for the project on flickr or get the calendar for £9.99
