Kim Needs Our Input.... Help
How to make a cushion to allow for the open shutters?
We decided to make a center cushion and then 2 bolsters. The picture with the shutters open doesn't show clearly - but with them open, the bolsters either have to sit over the edge of the seat, or sit on either side of the center cushion.
It's an ok solution BUT the bolsters don't really go with the mid century modern style of the rest of the furniture (The Knoll sofa is slipcovered!)
Initially I made them with no buttons to create a geometric look, but she didn't like that...
I added the buttons and that was better, but really she just doesn't like bolsters.
Can anyone see a creative solution for 2 side cushions that can be placed in a presentable and functional manner with the shutters open?
The center cushion must be used - can't start over from scratch.
