Should we try to remove and reinstall or use wood putty to fill gaps/disguise seams if possible?…

I’m thinking this is the home of sonemoe hugely wealthy…Most Paris apparts are small to tiny. This is loft-like and not at all the usual going thing.The French do love ultra modern but usually warmed up with something else or at least essential Haussmann architectural details.
