On the surface, the Bastille Bar Stool is a sturdy and stylish bar stool with an industrial-chic sensibility. Below its rust-resistant galvanized steel surface, the Bastille is an accurately proportioned, premium quality reproduction of the Marais Bar Stool, designed in 1934 by Xavier Pauchard, as part of his iconic Marais seating collection. Mr. Pauchard is credited with having introduced galvanized steel furniture construction to France, and the Marais collection was considered revolutionary. The designs were extremely popular at the time and could be seen all over Paris in cafes, bistros and offices. They maintained relevancy throughout the remainder of the 20th century, and thanks to a revival of interest in industrial design, have even gained a new momentum of popularity in recent years.
The Bastille Bar Stool celebrates all of the unique qualities that made the original so great. Over 80 years after the debut of the Marais, the Bastille is constructed using the very same processes (which require 100 manual operations). Availability in a variety of metallic tones and on-trend pop colors broadens the Bastille's function within industrial-inspired and modern homes and public spaces alike. Its sturdy construction, wide variety of stocked options and value make the Bastille Bar Stool a perfect choice for bars, ice cream shops and restaurants.
The Bastille Bar Stool with Back adds sturdy support and functionality to our Bastille Bar Stool with the addition of its built-in backrest. The Bastille exudes confidence and character, and is an accurate reproduction of Xavier Pauchard's famed Marais Bar Stool, which debuted in France in the 1930s. While simple in design at a glance, the Marais was constructed through a process that required 100 manual operations, and the Bastille, 80 years later, is constructed in the same way. Revolutionary for its time, Pauchard is credited with having introduced galvanized steel manufacturing to the furniture industry. The result was one of the best-selling collections of cafe seating of both the 20th & 21st centuries, and this design can be seen virtually everywhere, from the cafe, bistro or restaurant on the corner, to offices, hospitals, hotels and large public spaces.
The Bastille Bar Stool with Back is available in an assortment of on-trend color options that are equally well-suited for industrial-inspired and modern dining spaces.
