Stressless Recliner chairs review

Jun 8th, 2011 10:48:05 pm - Subscribe

My husband and I have been lusting across the Ekornes brand of leather reclining chairs for many years. Since individual chairs cost in excess of $1000 each (and several are over $2500 each!), we have put off making that purchase. However, when our leather recliner and loveseat turned 10 years old, we made a decision it was time to bite the bullet when our native merchant of Ekornes products had a big sale.

Though our two chairs and ottomans were at the entry level of the quality level in the Ekernes line, we still paid $995 every chair. This stressless chair and ottoman are covered with a Batick leather, which is a leather with a shielding layer of lacquer added so that stains are much easier to deal with. It is much easier to clean, and less expensive in price, the leather is not as gentle and elastic as the high end Royalin line of leather.

The Stressless lines is manufactured in Norway, and is particularly Scandanavia's biggest furniture maker. Ekornes has distributed in excess of 5 million Stressless chairs since 1971. The company tag line is Stressless: The Innovators of Comfort. Unlike large reclining chairs made by some other manufacturers, the Ekornes chairs are small, yet furnish much more comfort and support. The Stressless Chairs have a stained teak base, along with the footrest also slides backwards and forwards along it's matching teak base. The chairs come with a round comfort table that can swivel to the side or it can be moved closer to you, it can be installed on either the right or left side of the chair, and might be removed if you do not like it. The chairs have two knobs on either side that allow you to tighten the tension so that the Stressless Chairs will recline easily or harder. It will lay back quite far or sit straight upright. The chairs also turning to a complete 360 degrees.
These Stressless recliner chairs are so cozy, I can't even commence to place it into words. You probably have to experience this luxury by yourself! The tubular frame these Stressless recliners give you absolute comfort. No matter what spot you have it in, the furniture automatically follows your movements and that means you do not have to maintain varying it's position for that ideal level of support and comfort.

The store had a model of the interior workings of a Ekornes cheap stressless chair, and that we noticed firsthand how as soon as the chair back comes to a vertical position, the bars in the lumbar area routinely protrude to give you that needed support in the small of the back. As the chair lying down, the lumbar area compressed out a lttle bit, so it's self adjusting.

Ekornes warranties their internal mechanisms for 10 years after purchase. The metal frame, metal springs, and gliding system are generally covered under the warranty. The Stressless chairs came with Leather Master Leather Protection Cream, which is a joy to use. It smells wonderful and the leather doesn't need to be buffed after cleaning it down.

We've got a mid-sized living room, however it contains some furniture pieces. Two standard sized recliners were out of the question for the space we had, and my husband and I really like our Ekornes cheap stressless chair. Read More Ekornes stressless chair review at our site

I purchased 2 Stressless chairs & ottomans & they are not comfortable for sitting more than 15 minutes. Would not recommend due to lack of comfort and appearance in room with standard size furniture because the stressless chairs appear very small.
