What Makes Ekornes Stressless Recliners Better Than Any Other?

That unmistakable Scandinavian style. Those surprisingly convenient features. The unmatched quality of construction. The unbelievable comfort that almost seems extravagant. What is it about Ekornes Stressless furniture that sets it above the rest?

Truth be told, it’s all of the above and more.

That’s the quick answer. But if you really want to dig deeper and find out why so many homeowners are in love with their Ekornes Stressless sofas and recliners, you’ll find the answer here…

1. Highly-Engineered Ergonomics

Engineers who design high-end furniture know they have tough standards they have to adhere to.

Like the elite engineers who are responsible for making famous German luxury cars the best in the world, Ekornes engineers have a similar role. If they don’t do their job right, nothing else matters. From the very beginnings of the company back in 1934, when German machines were imported to create the very first line of Ekornes furniture, the brand has always signified the ultimate in quality engineering.

But what does that mean for you? Cloud-like comfort like you’ve never experienced before in any chair or sofa. Combining the latest in ergonomics research with solid principles of anatomical design to accommodate the mechanics and scale of the human body at rest, the engineers who design the foundation and structure of Ekornes furniture set the highest standards for themselves. Only the best will do, and perfection is the goal.

2. Effortless Reclining System That Responds to Your Body

The craftsmen who engineer Ekornes furniture have done their job so well they’ve created recliner chairs that adjust automatically to your body weight. Imagine shifting positions and hardly moving a muscle. Your recliner responds to the movement of your body weight and automatically adjusts to the position you desire. No levers to pull. No buttons to push. It’s like having a recliner that reads your mind.

How does it work? Each Stressless recliner comes with Stressless Glide® wheels that can be adjusted to the setting you desire. Once you’ve chosen your setting, the recliner does the rest.

First, the ErgoAdapt™ system will automatically position the seating angle the instant you sit down.

Then, the Plus® System kicks in. This is what enables your Stressless recliner to automatically position the seat to support your head and neck. It also moves into the correct lumbar position so you feel almost as if you’re floating on water. It’s why this incredible line of sofas and chairs is called “Stressless”. Using the natural form and movement of your own body, the seating system responds to provide support and comfort on a whole new level.

3. Dreamlike Comfort

Once you’re settled in, you won’t believe how comfortable Stressless recliners really are. Part of the reason is the effortless reclining system but it’s also the construction of the furniture. The craftspeople who design and produce Stressless recliners are considered innovators of comfort. Form follows function, and the function of a recliner is to make you as comfortable as you’ve ever been.

It’s not just the ergonomics. It’s not just the effortless reclining action. It’s also the trademarked Comfort Zones™ in each piece made by Stressless. The seat features perforated, super-thick foam cushions that guide you to the most comfortable position for your body. The result: you sink into perfect comfort every time you sit in your Stressless recliner.

4. Unbeatable, Timeless Style

These premium luxury recliners aren’t just heavenly to sit in… they’re exceptionally beautiful as well. The refined design of an Ekornes Stressless piece hearkens back to the company’s Scandinavian roots, where simple lines and streamlined silhouettes set the tone. It’s a clean, modern look that fits into any decor, any home, and style and any taste.

5. Premium Materials

With all that goes into creating the most comfortable chair on earth, it would be an unfortunate oversight if Ekornes used anything but the absolute best in materials for their furniture.

That’s why you’ll find nothing but gold-standard components from top to bottom:

6. Long-Lasting Value

High-quality materials are great features to have in your furniture, but how does that translate to value for you? It’s simple, really: long-term value, the kind that creates legacy pieces for new generations.

That single steel rod in every Ekornes Stressless chair or sofa is part of why these pieces last so long. The result of those premium materials like beech, top-grain leather, and steel is furniture so strong and durable. you’ll be able to hand it down for many generations. No matter how much stress you put on the frame, it will hold up and continue to provide amazing comfort.

Top grain leather also adds to the long-term value of your Ekornes furniture. It’s incredibly durable, possesses amazing elasticity, and it’s more stain-resistant than other types of leather. You’ll be able to pass your piece down to subsequent generations and it will look practically like new.

And the solid beech frame? It’s typical of high-end furniture that’s built to last for generations. It’s part of the reason why you’ll see vintage Ekornes Stressless pieces for sale on eBay at prices well over a thousand dollars!
