As of late, I have been loving the Chaise A chairs by Tolix. Originally produced in the 1930's in France for outdoor bistro seating, they now have become a mainstream design element that can be used in just about any setting. While they are decidedly French, they are not the slightest bit fussy. These chairs play nicely in most any setting: modern or traditional, casual or formal. Made from galvanized steel they can be withstand quite a beating which is great if you have a family or want to leave them outdoors. Personally, I think they are most perfect when placed around a more traditional kitchen or dining room table. Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue, elevated these chairs' status last year when it was revealed that the fashion queen rules her empire from a Tolix chair. You can purchase these chairs here, here and here.
