Comfortable kitchen chairs

This one should be incredibly easy but it isn't. All I want is a set of comfortable kitchen chairs. I bought a set back in the 1970s that were perfect. Each chair was a single surface from the seat up to a slightly reclining back, all thickly padded and covered with vinyl. Eventually the vinyl wore out, and I had them reupholstered. The reupholstering job wasn't as good as the original but it sufficed. I had them reupholstered again several years later but the job was botched. We still use them because we can't find anything else. Wherever we look, we just see hard wooden surfaces, or something whose design is dictated by style with no thought given to comfort. These might be good for a restaurant where you want customers to eat and leave so you can get the next customer in. But they are really torture to sit on for any length of time. Throwing a cushion on them doesn't help. Can anyone recommend anything? I'm beginning to think my only option is to have another try at reupholstering.

Parson chairs are one option.

I've ordered items for customers from Chromcraft before with good results. They have many choices of chair styles and upholstery fabrics.
