Anyone else not a fan of the seat design?

You must be referencing Bayliners. You also must know the two best days of a boat owner.
It's better to have friends with boats! A good friend has a wakeboard boat that cost more than a Rivian & has cracks/splits after just a couple years...takes great care of it too.

I have had my Yamaha AR230 for 10 years and just got it reupholstered for the first time this spring. It had just started to split in a few places, many of the cushions were still fine, but in order to match everything, they all got redone.

Remains to be seen what the production seats will looks like but the following color combos is all that will be offered. I recently inquired about swapping the wood trim from the Lunar Rock interior into the Black Mountain interior in place of the darker wood and was told that would not be possible.

Sophia Park (CMF Designer) does some amazing work with the materials and color on the Rivian R1S interior and the R1T. I don't think they could have picked anyone better.

Every time I see videos and pictures those seats stand out more and more. I don’t like the loose ripple of the material. Looks poorly finished. Hope they go for a cleaner look and tighten up the seats.

for what its worth, I feel like Kia has some of the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in, especially in the last couple years. They don't LOOK that great, but they definitely feel great. My moms '18 Soul is just incredibly comfortable.
I'm not sure if they use the same supplier, this "hyundai transys company". But yea, its definitely one of the most important aspects of a vehicle, and a weird feeling or uncomfortable seat could totally ruin the launch of this vehicle. I think they are well aware of that and it sounds like they have someone on board who knows that as well...
Completely agree.

The Telluride took a heavy aesthetic cue from Rivian with their seats and it seems to be working for them. Same with the CT6 seat design.

I'm a big fan of them and as long as the have some adjustable thigh support settings. I'll be quite pleased I'm sure.

I don't care so much about the look, what they have works for me and I doubt I will be disappointed with the final product. What I desperately hope is that they sit as comfortably for 9-10 hrs as the seats in my Volvo.

I feel the interior choices are too dark. There's two dark to one light color combo, but even in the lunar rock choice, floor mats, headliner, pulls and accents are dark, even if the wood trim is light. Black Mountain and Forest Edge are predominately dark.

There are no browns, leather-like choices and I understand if Rivian wants to stay away from looking like leather, but tan and sand like colors are another palette alternative. In general, dark interiors make a vehicle look smaller and retain heat longer, and that's a concern in Florida, Texas, California and elsewhere.

Why not 4 palette choices: two dark and two light?
