Legendary husband and wife design team Charles & Ray believed that functional modern design should be available to the masses. They also believed that their role as designers were that of grateful hosts catering to the needs of their guests. Having experimented with molded forms for years, Charles & Ray were keenly aware that the organic shapes achievable offered something new in the furniture industry. Not only could they be mass-produced, but the forms themselves offered something entirely new in design and function. Originally molded from fiberglass, and plastic later, Charles & Ray's Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Armchair (aka DAW and "shell chair") became a 20th century icon and has embedded itself into the design culture of the 21st century.

In 1934, Xavier Pauchard designed what would become the quintessential industrial cafe chair, the Marais A Chair (manufactured by Tolix), and what was originally introduced into Parisian cafes, restaurants and offices, over time became one of the most recognized icons in 20th century mainstream design worldwide. Xavier passed away in 1948, and his son Jean, following in his footsteps, designed the Marais A56 (named for the year he designed it). While his father brought galvanized steel furniture manufacturing to France decades before, through an intricate process comprised of 100 manual operations, Jean's creation was an armchair to compliment his father's. Over 80 years after the introduction of the Marais concept, both chairs have enjoyed worldwide recognition and a recent growth in popularity, thanks to a global revival of appreciation in industrial design & decor. If the times prove one thing, it's that the Marais Chairs are timeless.
Inmod adds vintage charm to a timeless classic. Inspired by the Marais A56 by Jean Pauchard, this accurately modeled replica is individually finished in an elegantly antiqued copper-like powder coat, giving each piece a rustic charm & character all its own, taking this iconic design to new heights of style.
Named for the year it was introduced, the Marais A56 was created in honor of his father's revolutionary contribution to industrial Parisian design, the Marais A Chair (by Tolix). Built on the same frame, Jean's design featured the addition of armrests, which filled a void and added functionality to an already hugely popular design. Whether the Pauchards knew it or not, the Marais family of seating would go on to become synonymous with industrial design and arguably become the most recognized of metal cafe chairs worldwide. The Bastille Cafe Stacking Armchair (Antique Copper) is an accurately produced replica that celebrates the original manufacturing techniques that Xavier Pauchard pioneered in 1934 (a production process that requires 100 manual operations). The Bastille's antiqued powder-coated finish adds a layer of vintage styling and outdoor suitability. It's heavy-duty construction & quality is authentic and caters to both residential & commercial environments and provides a truly unbeatable value.
