Why Choose Stressless® For Your Next Recliner Purchase

The Stressless® line of recliners by Ekornes of Norway has earned a lasting reputation for comfort and durability. This industry-leading furniture maker continues to innovate and constantly seeks out the best materials to work with, developing new features to improve comfort and quality. From incorporating cutting-edge power motion to engineering new mechanisms for their comfort technology, Stressless® is at the forefront of Scandinavian design. Even as Ekornes has grown and modernized within the furniture industry, the company has maintained its dedication to producing contemporary, functional designs with superb craftsmanship and materials.

“They take pride in their manufacturing practices in Norway and keep the authenticity of the product alive,” said Richard Cobourn, a sales associate with Copenhagen, which carries the Stressless® line.

Here are four reasons why, every year, thousands of furniture shoppers choose to go Stressless® for recliner purchases.

1. The only recliner your doctor will recommended

It’s hard to believe that a chair can be good for your health, but a Stressless® recliner actually is. Stressless® is the only recliner in the world that is fully endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). With its patented steel tubular structural framing and three distinctive layers of foam, Stressless models are designed to literally cradle the body and remove tension in the back, neck and legs that can be created by movement. This helps to stimulate blood flow and speed recovery from physical activity or injury. Owners often sit in the chairs for hours without even feeling the need to move. It’s not uncommon, Cobourn added, to actually get referrals from physicians recommending the recliners to patients. Whether sitting down to nap, read, or work, a Stressless® chair provides the lumbar and neck support where it’s needed most and has accessories – like a USB-charging adjustable table or laptop table – to make each of your daily activities more comfortable and stress-free.

2. Unmatched customization

With Stressless®, it’s easy to create a chair that’s just right for you. Stressless® recliners come in 13 models, from the softly cushioned Mayfair to the sleek, executive silhouette of the Wing. You can also pick from three base options, whether it’s the original Classic base or the more modern Cross or Signature bases. Four leather grades let you choose the best leather for your lifestyle — the most popular choice being the semi-aniline, easy-care Paloma leather. Stressless chairs come in three sizes that can accommodate nearly any body type, as well as dozens of color options.

3. Built for the long haul

Built with a patented steel tube design and the finest material around the globe, Stressless recliners are known for their durability. Backed by a 10-year warranty, it’s not uncommon for customers to own chairs for 15 to 20 years.

“With something that stands the test of time like this, you gain a reputation, and there’s definitely a lot of word of mouth and people passing them down in the family that brings people into our showroom,” Cobourn noted.

4. Sleek European design

With contemporary design embracing sleek, clean lines, the Stressless recliner is a perfect fit. Cobourn refers to Stressless as an “adaptable, modern design” that’s right at home in a variety of décor situations. Copenhagen’s consultants also survey and analyze the space where the chair will reside in your home to help you make decisions about the right colors. Stressless utilizes only the finest leathers from Italy or Brazil and there is a virtually endless selection of colors.

“These recliners are a perfect fit for people looking for something fun, with a contemporary look, yet completely authentic design; and the large range of colors really helps to adapt to any living situation,” Cobourn added.
