The tufted back was custom upholstered for this wall space. I'm sure a local upholsterer could easily measure and complete it for you. Good luck with your project!

Hi, I am not exactly sure on the bench as my client brought in a craftsman whom she was close to and wanted to use. The cushion is custom through my, and probably any, upholsterer so available in any size. Thanks!
