Many of our client’s wonder why all the excitement about a simple reclining chair.  If you haven’t tried one out yet we’ll sum it up in a few words.  Stressless recliners are simply the most comfortable seating arrangements of all time.  We agree that is a pretty strong claim to make, so we’re here to explain.


 Stressless recliners go far beyond any other recliner you’ve ever known in terms of comfort, style, and craftsmanship.  That’s why you’ll not find Stressless Chairs and Sofa’s at the big box stores that specialize in cheap, disposable furniture for the masses.   Stressless chairs are engineered with the finest precision to create the most comfortable seating on earth. Plus, superior craftsmanship and high-quality materials mean these chairs are built to last a lifetime and therefore carry a premium price.  Think of it as not so much as buying a chair, as investing in long-term comfort and durability.  With that said, Stressless isn’t for everyone. 

So what makes Stressless Recliners better than any other?  The quick answer is the unmistakable Scandinavian style, surprisingly convenient features, and the unmatched quality of construction.

 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, Stressless 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 Scandinavia to create the very first line of Stressless furniture, the brand has always signified the ultimate in quality engineering.



What that mean for you is 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 Stressless furniture set the highest standards for themselves. Only the best will do, and perfection is the goal. 

Effortless Reclining System that Responds to Your Body

The craftsmen who engineer Stressless furniture have done their job so well they’ve created a recliner that automatically adjust to your body weight, allowing you to shift positions with hardly moving a muscle.   The recliner responds to the movement of your body weight and automatically adjusts to the position you desire without any levers to pull or buttons to push.  It’s like having a recliner that reads your mind.


How it work is that 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.  Next, the ErgoAdapt™ system will automatically position the seating angle the instant you sit down.

 Then, the Plus® System kicks in that enables your Stressless recliner to automatically position the seat to support your head and neck.  It also adjusts to the perfect 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. 

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 or the effortless reclining action, it’s also the trademarked Comfort Zones™ that features perforated, super-thick foam cushions that guide you to the most comfortable position allowing your body to sink into perfect comfort every time. 

Modern Style

These premium luxury recliners aren’t just heavenly to sit in, they’re exceptionally beautiful to look at as well. The refined design of a 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.

Premium Materials

If you’re going to put all that into creating the most comfortable chair on earth, it would be foolish not to use the absolute best in materials available to ensure that it lasts.  That’s why they only use gold-standard components from top to bottom such as:

  • Only Top-grain supple leather is used so that has a uniform look which is so important in the design of Scandinavian furniture.
  • Solid beech plywood, which gives a strong, long-lasting wood frame.
  • A rock-solid interior support system made possible by a single steel rod frame. No welding and no screws are used on the frame, just one single steel rod that’s expertly formed to the perfect shape by a unique cold bending process.
  • Much like a premium quality mattress, Stressless is characterized by an internal system of individual springs. These springs are what make possible the superior lumbar support you’ll come to love.

Long-Lasting Value

High-quality materials are great create long-term value, the kind that creates legacy pieces for new generations.  For example, the single steel rod in every 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 creates furniture so strong and durable, you’ll be able to hand it down for many generations.

 Top grain leather also adds to the long-term value of Stressless furniture due to its incredible durability that possesses amazing elasticity.  It’s also more stain-resistant than other types of leather making it look new for many years to come.

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

 Customizable Options

 Not only can you find seemingly endless styles to match your home decor and your taste, you can also find design options to match your body’s needs.  Choose from 4 types of leathers, 10 styles of fabrics, and 7 colors and finishes. 

Customized Sizing 

Stressless knows that people come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why they produce their recliners in three sizes and adjustable two-way headrests that can be set to match the angle and the height of your body.
