Very tastefully done. You put a lot of thought into your choices and took your time finding just the right material and it paid off.

the seat looked and felt like an old Sunday coat

My sister wore a coat every winter Sunday just like that in the 50s.

I'm sure you are glad that you didn't settle for something OK but held out for that perfect match. It makes the results sweeter.
