Hi Apartment Therapy — I would like to restore this wonderful Fred Lowen Chair to its former glory, and I'd like suggestions from Apartment Therapy readers. Should I paint it? Restore the wood base? What about fabric color? Thanks, Lea

Our gut instinct is to steer clear of painting it, but if it is damaged, paint could hide a lot of imperfections (and any wood filler needed to repair major damage). Maxwell posted about painting McCobb Chairs White yesterday.

Anyone else?
