Hi - the sofa is super comfortable. Having the lower back usually doesn't effect us. I think because it is reasonably deep and the seat is cushy, the back sits just below your shoulders. Sometimes I will prop a pillow on top of the back when I want to lean back while watching a movie. I'm about 5'5" for reference. The best part is that it's also a queen sleeper!

Eek! Those are expensive! I added them for the look and the watercolor effect, so I think they could definitely be reproduced on your own. I do like @scarbowcow idea, and think it is very possible. Why not live a little and DIY - that's probably what I would do for these. . . . Wondering if one could buy fabric ink and try to paint it on with a dry brush?
