Inspired by the popularized Marais seating designs introduced by Xavier Pauchard in the 1930's, the Bastille Counter Stool with Low Back celebrates everything that remains great today about these iconic designs. What originated in Parisian cafes and eating establishments over 80 years ago was so revolutionary for its time that Xavier's and his son Jean's designs eventually gained worldwide recognition and popularity growth through the 20th century. Today, they are more popular than ever due to their practicality and stylish diversity.
Staying true to the original Marais production techniques, the Bastille Counter Stool with Low Back is intricately constructed of galvanized steel, so it is extremely durable in heavy-use public spaces. It is available in an authentic gunmetal finish that features elegant surfacing details (uniquely applied to each piece) as well as a clean sleek white powder-coated finish (which makes it great for outdoor use). The Bastille offers your dining / counter space an unparalleled balance of quality, style and practicality.
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.
