From someone with retail furniture experience, retailers need to weed out inventory year round... Not just in July... Although the "new stuff" usually does hit stores in August and February...

my grandmother's were in pea soup green... i painted them black, as that was the color i wanted them (not worried about historical colors)...

good luck painting them with regular spray paint, if you experience is anything like mine, it might never dry. i ended up using specialty appliance epoxy spray made by rustoleum, it finally got them to dry.


Apartment Therapy San Francisco | SF Good Questions: Historical Colors of Bertoia Chairs?

personally i would do two non matching upholstered chairs... different styles and colors on both... maybe a complementary color (blue) and a harmonious color (something gold maybe, darker than the yellows in the room... be careful with this)... room needs to be broken up visually this would do that...

i also like the rug change idea... but that's probably for another time

a chair with 2 cracks? thankfully, i've got fill-sticks... i would imagine you could get $500 easily, if not up toward $800... of course, you have to find a buyer with the right attitude, as you can so plainly see here...
