You know that feeling of comfort you get when you’re ready to settle in for relaxation time? You’re ready to curl up in your own chair and truly feel relaxed.
Do you sometimes get uncomfortable after a while feeling the need to wiggle or get your back positioned just right? Maybe your furniture is old and its true comfort level has expired.
If it’s feeling worn out and bumpy, it’s probably lost the comfort it once offered. It might be the very reason you’re ready to consider a Stressless recliner.
You might also be ready to make the investment into a high-quality piece of furniture. If you’re ready to buy a Stressless recliner so you have the ultimate chair with comfort and quality, you’ve come to the right place.
Are you wondering how to choose a recliner that’s just right for you? Read our guide about Ekornes Stressless recliners and how to get the perfect chair for your home or office.
What Is a Stressless Recliner?
While a Stressless recliner sounds like a specific type of recliner built for comfort (and it is), it’s also actually a brand of recliners built by the Norwegian company Ekornes.
The Ekornes furniture brand has a long history of building furniture with both quality and comfort in mind. J.E. Ekornes Fjærfabrikk started furniture production back in 1934 and never looked back.
A Stressless recliner is built to support you and provide comfort in a number of ways. It allows you to move forward and backward in the seat while seated. The recliner also allows you to swivel while seating.
Most Stressless recliners come with a detached ottoman allowing you more leg flexibility and movement too.
What Makes Ekornes Stressless Furniture Special
The Ekornes brand was built with two goals. Build furniture that offers the highest levels of comfort and quality to those who invest in it.
Today Ekornes Stressless recliners continue the tradition of offering:
- The highest quality materials
- Built by highly skilled craftsman
- Feature contemporary and modern Scandinavian design
Ekornes’ goal of building the best furniture possible is achieved by using the best woods, leathers, textiles, and finishes in their furniture building process.

Choosing Your Ekornes Stressless Recliner
Because Stressless recliners come in many variations so you can be sure to get the best chair for you, you’ll have a series of decisions to make when you decide to bring a Stressless recliner into your home.
There are many types of Stressless recliners with options that allow you to get a custom chair that’s a just-right fit for your ultimate comfort.
Let’s take a closer look at the things you should consider when buying your Stressless recliner.
The Stressless recliners mostly come in three sizes, small, medium, and large. Many people assume that your height is the only factor to consider when choosing a size.
Actually, there are a number of other considerations beyond just how tall you are when selecting the Stressless recliner size. You also want to consider:
- Body type
- Length of your torso
- Personal preference for how the chair feels
Probably the biggest consideration you should remember is where the lumbar support lands on your body. Neck and head support are key factors when choosing a chair size.
The size of the chair will impact both the depth of the seat and the height of the back of the chair. This can impact where the lumbar support lands on your body. The width of the chair also changes by size, which can impact the fit too.
Each Stressless recliner chair style is going to not only look different, but it will also feel different too. The different styles of Stressless recliners use a unique mold. The mold for each chair is used to shape the foam of the different styles of chair.
This also means that each chair style has a different amount of foam padding. You want to try out a variety of chair styles to find the foam makeup that’s right for you. The amount of foam can change both the look and feel of the chair.
One style of some chairs has an adjustable headrest. This is a particularly nice feature if you have members of your family who are very tall.
When you’re considering style, be sure to sit in the chairs without a coat. Sit in them how you might at home so you get the real feel of the chair.
Many people will approach style just for the looks of the chair. The style of Stressless recliners has as much to do with how it feels as it does with how it looks.
One decision you’ll need to make for your Stressless recliner is what base you prefer. They generally come with three options: Classic, Signature, and LegComfort.
The classic base is the original version of the Stressless recliner and has been around the longest. It’s usually the least expensive option. The Classic base doesn’t rock but it does offer the option to swivel. The Classic base footrest also pivots to provide extra comfort.
The Signature base is a little more specialized and comes with polished aluminum parts that pair with whichever wood selection you choose. The Signature base has a mechanism on the chair that allows you to rock slightly as well as to swivel.
The Signature chair also gives you a little deeper recline. One thing some buyers notice in the Signature base is that both the arms and seat are slightly higher offering additional comfort and support.
One new option in the Stressless recliner is the LegComfort base. Many buyers appreciate the LegComfort base if they have more limited space and a separate footrest doesn’t work. The LegComfort base comes with the footrest integrated into the main chair and is operated by buttons discreetly placed on the side of the chair.
The footrest of this base is controlled by the buttons, but the backrest is still controlled by the bodyweight of the person in the chair. The LegComfort base is only available in the medium and large chair size.
There is also the Stressless Office base option which is a nice option to bring the Stressless recliner into the office. It comes with a 5-star base. It can also come with a lower back option for desk use in the office.
Stressless recliners are all about comfort. They’re built with comfort in mind using two different patented technologies. This technology provides touted continuous support for the lower back and head. It also adjusts the reclining angle based on how you shift your body.
The patented Plus system works in the chair to coordinate how the support for the lower back works in conjunction with the headrest. So, whether your chair is reclined or upright, you have full support in the legs, spine, and neck too.
If you select the Signature base, you can also get the additional feature of the patented BalanceApapt. This is the rocking motion that you get with this base.
The true beauty of the Stressless recliner is that no matter which version, size, style, and base, you’re getting:
- Proper skeletal and spinal alignment
- Equalization of bodyweight across pressure points
- Better circulation
- Healthy, supported relaxation
The key to these features comes from the patented comfort technology that is part of the Stressless recliner.
Chair Upholstery and Wood
Finally, you can really personalize your chair by selecting the wood grain and color, and leather used to create your completely custom Streamless recliner.
The Stressless line has five different leather lines including Pioneer, Paloma, Batick, Noblesse, and Cori. There are many colors in each of the lines for you to choose from.
The wood finish options include Black, Weng, Grey, Teak, Brown, Walnut, Oak, and Whitewash options.
