Where can I find the tufted high back cushion for the bench? - I had this idea but have never found a photo til now. Thank you!

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!

How is the bench made? And where can you get a long cushion for the seat?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Susan E. Brown Interior Design
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!
