They are old volvo accessory covers for the 75-85 200's. They were once available at the dealer in a ton of different materials and colours to match all the interiors.
Your best bet for finding them now is finding a set at a swap meet, online classifieds, or getting very lucky in a junkyard. They do pop up on ebay sometimes. The blue velour type are fairly common, as are the black leather and vinyl ones. Some of the rarer interiors are really hard to find. I've been looking for a set of silver velour/black vinyl front headrest pads for the 81 GLT interior for seven years.

A good upholstery shop could easily make you a new pair, but matching the material can be very hit or miss. They are just seat fabric wrapped over a foam pad and plastic insert, not terribly complicated.

86+ 240's use the same pads as the 700/900's do (with the curved headrests), those are a bit more common than the early ones.
