The base plans are for the modern outdoor chair. My modifications were as follows: I made the front and back pieces 22 inches and the sides 24 inches for smaller cushions . I also cut two extra 2x6's, also 22 inches for the "modified back " center pieces and two 2x6's at roughly 16 inches for the sides of the "modified back" center piece. I cut those pieces at 105 degrees before attaching the center pieces. It's just like the sides but with a miter on the side pieces . I also attached them to the armrest from underneath with screws and glue before I attached the armrest to the chair vs. using pocket holes.
