|The article I just found below appeared in the Independent. I googled Tolix and was surprised to find these chairs were actually made here in The Morvan. The name Pauchard of which it's designed by is everywhere here. I often see stools, tables or chairs in the small ads here in France, for substantial amounts of money. Typically 50 Euros for a pair of chairs. I spotted the one above in a local garage. Anyway we have ongoing car adventures. Today we lost a fan belt whilst trying to get to see a Salamandre stove. Luckily we hadn't yet left home and so were able to take another spare car. We have a few crap cars and a lovely van, that's still in the garage waiting for parts. The stove turned out to be badly broken. The back where the chimney flue fits to the collar was really badly smashed so with sadness I walked away. The man selling had forewarned me. He'd put an advert up and only when I rang to inquire he spotted the damage. It was so heavy otherwise I think I may have taken it and we may have used it for a garden feature. We hear more snow is coming so instead of the stove we went to the Cooperative for more sheep nuts. http://www.leboncoin.fr/bricolage/409449350.htm?ca=5_s |
Here is the link for the stove I nearly bought.
