Can I Replace Buttons on Plycraft Lounge Chair without Removing Cushion?

Good Questions

Q: I just bought a beautiful Plycraft Eames-style lounge chair that is in really good condition. The only problem is that it is missing four buttons (two on the chair seat and two on the ottoman). I'd like to replace the tufted buttons without removing the cushions from the plywood shell. Is there a way to thread them through the cushion? Or is there a special "self-tufting" button that I could pop in there?
