Default Who builds the best bolsters?

Who builds/designs the best bolsters. I'm looking at redesigning the 20 year old seating in my Fountain. The design is the most important, not so much material.
I've heard Apache bolsters suck you in.
I've seen Cigarette's mid/late 90's version and like that too.

It's not that important, but my bolsters are side-by-side. I've considered doing what OT does with a filler cushion as well.

Pics would be very helpfull. Thanks

Bryan

Thanks rbr but I'm actually looking for a classic design. A little more square. I was also thinking about incorporating side bolsters to lock you in.

Jassman,

That's what I'm talking about. I should have been more clear. I'm redoing the existing bolsters. There is no way on God's green earth that I will spend 5k in front seats.
