Abstract

An armrest and a bolster for use in a vehicle is disclosed. The armrest/bolster includes a substrate (e.g., plastic) with an in-molded flexible material (e.g., fabric). The inmolded "hammock" armrest or bolster utilizes the insert molded fabric, which is at least partially unsupported and free to flex as a load is applied to it, to create a cushion and soft feel.
