Boler cushions and covers

Can anyone help me find somewhere to get new covers made at a reasonable cost near Vancouver BC. Or a place that sells cushions that work for the boler. I went to the seamstress and she quoted me 400 for labour alone. There has to be a better solution
Thanks

You can order cushions and covers from the Scamp website for $525 and from what I've heard they will fit

Actually, it's a lot cheaper than that. $290 + S&H if all you want is the upholstery... no foam.

Just ordered the rear table/bed set of these and they fit perfectly!!!

I used foam from a queen sized bed and it worked out well!!!

it is cheaper if you get the covers only from scamp, however, getting foam made at the foam shop is expensive!!! i spent $300 from scamp for the covers and over $600 for the foam!
it looks very good though, and doesn't smell 36 years old!!

Boler cushion quick fix for non seamstress

Found the perfect solution for those of us who cannot sew but can use a jigsaw. After searching too many expensive solutions, I went and got1/4" pine plywood at home depot and had them cut the right width strips out of it. I took it home and put the cushions on the wood and traced out the outline making the wood bottom slightly smaller than the foam. Then I simply put the fabric on the foam and board and stapled it on the back (construction stapler). It looks awesome as it fits so snug. Got the fabric for 16$ at ikea yesterday and the wood cost me 22$. done!
Thanks

Very good idea. It allows real variety.

My daughter-in-law did a similar thing. Bought fabric than wrapped the cushion like a Christmas present and pinned it underneath.

I sewed mine other than the top bunk that needed to be stapled but I love the idea of the wood and stapling - way easier and probably less fabric!

We just had our cushions reupholstered by the wife's mother. She is an amazing seamstress (pics of finished product soon). She said that if the work was for anyone else, she wouldn't take less than $500!

Great Idea!

What a great idea! I did my dining room chairs the same way but never thought about it for the Trill. Unfortunately, the one place where I have found water is along the bench where my cushion will sit so can't do this until no wet Did you cover the wood with vinyl or something on the bottom so no rubbing or was the fabric wrapped around enough? Thanks again for the idea. Would love to see some pics.
