I would doubt they had the current seats with the winged headrests. Great question!
They were before the latest seats with the winged headrest. The latest generation of seats was installed in 1997-2000 across the narrowbody fleet (except the 727s and 737s).
The A320s did not have the same old light brown/grey first class seats that were on the 757s and 737s. They had a darker grey seat. They were just a large leather recliner similar to what was on the 757 and 737, but not exactly the same in first class.
I never flew the A320 in the old configuration in economy, so I can't comment on them in back.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
