Ekornes introduced the first Stressless recliner in 1971, as the first recliner designed to meet your body’s need for movement
and support when seated. The characteristic TV-recliner was a revolution in comfort and functionality, and soon became an
Offering patented features you won’t find on other recliners, from the glide system that follows your slightest movements, to the
Plus™ system for correct neck and lumbar support in every position, Stressless® is known as the ultimate recliner.
Inspired engineering, trend forecasting and industry experience are the secret to creating luxurious furniture people are proud
to own. As the “Innovators of Comfort,” Stressless are the masters of the comfort needs of the human body and continue to
develop the most intuitive and beautiful comfort technology.
Furniture should be many things: comfortable, beautiful, functional – and also intelligent. Creating furniture that understands
the human body’s unique needs became their mission. Through 80 years of experience and devotion, they became masters of
this science – constantly striving to create furniture that exceeds expectations of comfort and utility.
Nothing cultivates the optimal seating environment quite like reliable support. Their distinctive Plus™ system – a functional
skeleton of springs – interprets your body’s movements as you change positions to provide increased lumbar reinforcement. Lie
back into your recliner and feel as your spine slides down the chair and continues to be completely supported. You also sense
the unique headrest feature continue to lift your head to provide the most optimal body curvature for relaxation. A simple
adjustment releases the headrest to a comfortable, flat position ideal for napping. Now, you can maintain the optimal tilt of the
neck to make the most of reading, conversing or sleeping – naturally and effortlessly.
Unrestricted movement is the key to true comfort. The Stressless® Glide system reads your body’s weight and shape to adjust
making reclining natural and adaptive – not conforming to any preset recline positions like most recliners. It is equally as
important to be able to move in and out of your chair. With our unique swivel base, 360 degree rotation is possible, allowing for
a full range of movement. Experience how a simple push of you foot will send you back into your perfect recline position and
how turning in your chair happens effortlessly. We understand relaxation, so we made movement intuitive.
Your body’s interaction with a chair is vital to optimal seating experience. You should be able to sit deep into a chair, not on top
of it. The Comfort-Zones™ technology lets you do just that. This foam is molded directly over the steel frame with perforated air
pockets that allow you to sink entirely into the seat – creating a more soothing experience. A second layer of foam is fashioned
above that to form the most comfortable and ventilated seat possible. Together, these features make Stressless recliners
unmatched in comfort and adaptability.
Stressless recliners are certainly not the only pieces of this remarkable furniture that can read your body’s movements. For
example, Stressless sofas are equipped with the Ergo Adapt® feature, which allows the furniture to adapt to your seating
position. Lean back into the long seat or lie across the couch and feel how this system controls the tilt in the seat to conform to
your body’s most relaxed posture.
Sitting in a piece of Stressless furniture is such a soothing experience, it may be hard to pinpoint exactly which feature is
providing natural comfort. Be it the unique system of springs conforming to the curve of your back, the effortless movement you
are afforded in every direction or the inventive foam that cradles your body, it is clear that our complete comfort system was
designed with you in mind.
