How to model a curving banquette with button recesses

Scott Bulmer
Greetings, I have to model the attached image and believe I can use the Mesh Tool to create the buttoned surface, then convert to a Morph, then rotate. I am uncertain how to take that surface now vertical and curve it 90 degrees. Thanks for any insights. Scott
AC25 v. 5005 w/ MEP, Cadimage, Twinmotion 2021 using AC from AC6.0, 2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5 (OS X 12.2.1 Monterey), AMD FirePro D700 6GB, SSD, Artlantis 2019, Adobe CC. Used AC on both platforms.

I think it would be easier to achieve this look, if you're rendering, using a normal map channel in your texture.

I do not think it is possible to model it as flat with a morph then curve it along the length of the chair... I would probably model it as it is in plan with a morph, then elevate the top of the backrest. The front edge would then be filleted to create the soft edge and a texture as mentioned above applied to that.
