Flush Mount French Cleat


Making an upholstered back cushion for a dining banquette. I think the cleat is the right way to hang, but want to eliminate the gap in the back.

Cushion will be foam over 1/4” plywood, and attaching 2”x2”s along perimeter edges for the depth. So would I recess the cleat on the cushion side, or attach directly to 2x2?
