Q. I recently got my lola's two wooden armchairs, which are about 60 years old. Should I apply varnish to restore them? Or simply paint it? —Chelin Lea Fausto David, via Facebook
A. It is best to preserve the wooden finish of your furniture. Simply clean your chairs and apply varnish. You may match your chairs with a simple sofa with the same form as your chairs. As for your center and side tables, you may either have the traditional wooden tables or a sleek table with a glass top. —Pauline La’O, interior designer
