Thanks, that is what I am going for, a more modern interior (thats what the wife wants) and still have some vintage cues, and nice rustic pieces. and things like the martini lamps, thats arent vintage, but almost could be.

Those look great. What thickness did you choose? I ran an upholstery business for years, and remaking trailer cushions is now more common than reupholstering sofas One hint for people who are upholstering their own cushions… We always cut the foam 1/2-3/4 of an inch bigger than the cushion, and then we wrap it in white, thick, batting. We use silicone spray to get them to slide into the cushion bags. Thats what gives the professional cushions their full look. If someone has already upholstered their cushions and they look too loose, they can add two layers of fibre, using spray glue lightly to attach them, this will fill them out properly.
Just about all my trailers have had the chevron white V on the back. So just out of curiosity, what did you pay for your upholstery work? I've paid as little as $300 for a pair just like yours and as much as $500... Was your price in there somewhere?
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can, The courage to strip the parts off the ones I can't, And the wisdom to know the difference...
