If you think the chair in your living room is comfortable, you probably haven't tried one of the many Stressless recliner chairs by Ekornes Furniture. Ekornes, one of the leaders in furniture globally, has a line called Stressless that produces reclining chairs, sofas and home theater seating. While all of their products are considered top of the line, the Stressless chairs are their claim to fame and their top seller. They released their Stressless recliner chairs in 1971 and they have been considered some of the most comfortable and elegant reclining armchairs in the industry ever since.
Stressless recliner chairs have become famous because of their original, one of a kind design and classic appearance. The idea behind these chairs, and all Ekornes products for a matter of fact, is to create a relaxing experience that helps eliminate stress and foster feelings of peace. This is done through a combination of the original chair design and the fabrics used to make them. But Stressless recliner chairs go beyond just being comfortable, they are also built to be an elegant addition to any home.
The Stressless Recliner Chair Design
The Stressless recliner chair design is characterized by its zero gravity set-up. The chair is set up on a hinge to a horizontal bar. This is what creates the zero gravity feel that makes the reclining ability of the chair so different from other chairs. They swing in free gravity to wherever the person sitting in them wants. If the person wants to lie down, they simply push their weight backward and the chair will tilt that way smoothly and then hold them like a cloud as they sleep. When the person wakes up and leans forward to watch television or read a book, the chair will lean up and support them.
Add onto this already great design the fact that there is a friction control knob. This knob allows the zero gravity experience to be customizable. If you want the chair to be more supportive, adjust the knob. If you want the chair to be more sturdy, adjust the knob. The whole idea is that this chair becomes one with the person sitting in it, creating an optimal relaxation experience.
The Stressless Recliner Chair Look
These chairs don't just promote relaxation, they have a classic look that fits into any décor. They come in a number of different fabrics types and colors, so whether you want a chair to match the funky color scheme of your man-cave or the classy pastel arrangement of your upscale living room, there is a chair for you.
The chairs have a modern, sleek look that make it such a great option when it comes to choosing a recliner. It's a nice, large frame, balanced delicately on top of a round base. They come with a matching ottoman footrest to complete the package. These chairs really have a 21st century look that will spice up your living room, basement or any room that needs seating.
