Stressless Chairs come with the flexibility of reclining seats for that world-renowned comfort Ekornes is known for, and feature the patented Glide System* that responds quickly and smoothly to the movements of your body for the most comfortable sitting experience possible. With both lowback and highback versions available, you can opt for additional headrest support and fully customize the sitting position that best fits your needs.
The Ekornes Stressless Sofa is the logical and necessary extension of the Stressless Recliner, and a beautiful compliment to it as well. In their mission to make your den or living room the most comfortable, supportive and attractive space in your home, Ekornes has taken all the features and design components that make the recliner great and put it into an adjustable, customizable, individual, superb sofa. Developed in 1993, the Ekornes Stressless Sofa has become an international design touchstone, an ingenious, winning combination of ergonomic technology, elegant adjustment, and simple handsome design, the sofa has been the most comfortable and supportive piece of group furniture for nearly two decades.
Comfort Comfort is the primary goal of the entire Stressless line. Since 1971, when they first introduced themselves to the world, Ekornes has been interested in bringing the world's most comfortable seating experience to a wider and wider audience.
That's why you won't find a more comfortable sofa anywhere in the world than the Ekornes Stressless Sofa. You won't find a chair anywhere in the world that was built so exactingly to fit that standard either; not one decision was made without comfort as the absolute top priority. The genius of the product is it's ability to keep every single aspect of comfort without sacrificing in any other areas, like support and style and fit. You'll find comfort in the easy leather of the upholstery, tailored and treated to be as luxurious as possible. You'll find it in the highly individualized areas of the chair. Each section of the Ekornes Stressless Sofa is itself essentially a Stressless Chair; they move independent of each other, recline easily and elegantly, and can be adjusted to your exact specifications. Because each section of the sofa is so adaptable, you can have three different people sitting on the same sofa, all in different positions, all as comfortable and relaxed as they can be. The Glide system in the sofa makes sure that leaning and reclining is intuitive; the chair moves with you, and you have merely to shift your weight to achieve a different position or angle of recline. There are no obtrusive knobs sticking out, nothing to mar the look of your sofa; merely a contained, smart, effective mechanism that makes sure you're perfectly balanced, seemingly floating on air.
Aside from physical comfort, these chairs also give you the mental comfort and personal satisfaction of customization. In truth, the sofas aren't finished products until you buy them, choose what you want, and make the necessary adjustment to get you as comfortable as possible. The Ekornes Stressless Sofa is perfect for you because Ekornes has made sure that you are one of the sofas primary designers; as the owner, you have a very large amount of control over every minute adjustment and detail in the product, so that you're assured of having the ultimate leisure experience in the world's ultimate sofa.
Support Of course, you can't have great comfort without great support. Ekornes is on the front line of ergonomic research, making sure that folks can sit not only comfortably, but healthfully. With the right focus and understanding when it comes to ergonomic templates, furniture makers could literally improve the health of users world wide; take pressure of of their backs and shoulders, ease the circulation-cutting pressure of hard edged seat pans and inappropriately shaped seats and back rests. Derived from the greek for "natural law," ergonomics has led the way in a series of furniture breakthroughs, of which the Ekornes Stressless Sofa is only one of the most recent and accomplished. The product of long hours of precision engineering, planning and design, the structure of the Ekornes Stressless Sofa is such that you can be sitting in nearly any position and still achieve total comfort and support, as well as elegant adjustment, recline, etc.
The Stressless Sofa is special in that it provides specifically for lumbar support, an often overlooked but absolutely essential area of your back that has to have constant and effective support. The Ekornes Stressless Sofa is one of the only sofas anywhere that takes care of your lumbar region so effectively and specifically. How does it do it? With the Plus system. Two of the more important aspects of this system are the automatic headrest and the automatic lumbar support. Whenever you recline in the Ekornes Stressless Sofa, your headrest will automatically come forward. This keeps your vision intact, so you can comfortably read or watch television. It also keeps your lumbar in good shape. Whenever you lean forward or backward in the chair, the Plus system either "fills" the small of your back by making the chair rise to meet it, or bends to so that your lumbar region has no undue stress or pressure.
The style begins with the materials. The fine leather and wood accents the sofas are dressed with not only contributes to the comfort and engineering in the chair, they look great. At Smart Furniture, you can even customize these materials so that they look the way you want them to, express what you want to express in your home, and can match with your other pieces. Of course, there isn't just one type of sofa either; the Ekornes Stressless Sofa comes in many shapes and sizes and individual styles for your individual taste. Do you need a loveseat? A large couch? A blue couch? A red? Whatever it is you want, and whatever style it is you want it in, our Ekornes Stressless Sofa collection has it. At Smart Furniture we believe in making the customer one of the designers; in giving them a large say in the way a product will eventually turn out and live on in their home. If you're going to own it, you should also own a part of it's look, it's style and design.
