Ekornes Factory NorwayUniquely comfortable seating, made in Norway. Most Stressless® recliners are made in the village of Sykkylven (pop. 7,000), where thier plant combines old world craftsmanship with advanced technology. Scandinavian furniture at its finest. Their skilled workforce performs tasks that require a keen eye and an innate sense of quality, including upholstering and quality control. Precision robots handle mechanical functions, including the repetitive action that produces the ultra-smooth wood finishes on every Stressless®.

Stressless® was created in 1971 with a patented mechanism that established a new standard of comfort. In 1991, they added the patented Plus TM system, which provides correct neck and lumbar support in all upright and reclining positions. Two years later we introduced the sensational Stressless® sofa, with individually reclining seats. Stressless recliners feature clean simple lines and a functional design. Quality Scandinavian built furniture.

Creating beautiful rooms is easy. Suit your space and your lifestyle with a variety of seating types and sizes - all in the same coordinated style. The Stressless® recliner features their patented Plus TM system, which provides optimum head and lumber support, whether you're upright or fully reclined. The unique, two-stem base adds strength and stability - and lets you swivel a full 360 degrees. Stressless® comes with its own movable ottoman, for lower leg support, regardless of your height. Stressless® loveseats and sofas have individually reclining seat, giving everyone a personal comfort zone. These pieces coordinate beautifully with Ekornes® stationary seating. Their double ottoman has plenty of legroom for two plus storage space for DVDs, tapes or other items.

ACA The American Chiropractic Association endorses Stressless® reclining chairs and sofas because they provide a superior level of support and comfort for the head and lower back. Just turn the Glide wheels to adjust Stressless® to your body weight. The patented Stressless® Plus TM System continuously adjusts the head and lumbar support, adapting to the changing contours of your back as you recline. Every Stressless® recliner is available in two or three sizes, for a custom fit.
"The average person spends a great deal of time sitting in chairs and sofas. Therefore is it very important to choose furnishings that are built using sound ergonomic principles. Ekornes® uses those very principles and that is why the ACA is proud to endorse Stressless® seating by Ekornes®." - Donald J. Krippendorf, D.C., President, American Chiropractic Association.
