Armrest design

I am working on a design for an armrest for my SLK. The padding on the center console door is slightly back too far for my elbow while driving. I am working on an idea to add a padded section on the drivers side of the emergency brake console. It will be made of thin high density foam that I use in my office, covered with a piece of gloove leather. It will extend towards the rear, just short of the existing armrest on the center console.
Does anyone have any input or designs they may have used? THANKS...
