Q: Nearly 35 years ago, my parents received this couch and loveseat as a wedding present from my grandfather, who owned a furniture store. They replaced the original cushions with these maybe… 15 years ago? They're the same shape and style as the originals, just new upholstery. It's time again to replace the cushions, and they have come to me for advice, as I am aesthetically opinionated. :)
The thing is... I grew up with this couch and lack objectivity! I think the frame is really lovely and am thinking a more streamlined, squared-off cushion could be an option. Maybe with top and bottom welts?
