Stressless Blues Chair and Ottoman, Medium, Leather Upholstery
by Ekornes Stressless
At A Glance:
Carrying the mantle as Ekornes' top-of-the-line recliner, the Stressless Blues Chair follows up where the previous year's award-winning Jazz Chair left off. Stylish, soft, and sophisticated, the Stressless Blues Chair is just as at home at a lounge or bar as it is in your own home. Shop an extensive collection of leather and fabric choices to easily find a style to suit your taste, decor and color scheme.
What's To Like:
The recline function (the Glide System) reacts to shifts in your body weight. This means you never have to hold tension in your body, like you would in many other recliners. Your head, neck, and shoulders are supported well by the Stressless Blues Chair's headrest. The headrest moves with the chair to keep your head supported in a reading position with your neck muscles relaxed. As an alternative, you can drop the headrest if you'd like to lie almost fully flat. The Plus system within the chair controls lumbar region support, so that whenever you need it, the chair moves to support your lower back. And all that's not even getting into the way the chair looks! It's refined-looking, like it belongs in the home of someone who appreciates the finer things - like you do.
What's Not to Like:
We're not going to be able to knock this recliner's comfort. It's simply comfortable. So it's all a matter of taste at this point. If you don't like its look, then that's what's not to like. We don't think that the price tag is an issue here because of the incredible value a Stressless recliner is in terms of comfort and durability.
The Bottom Line:
With a striking combination of comfort, function, and balanced good looks, the Stressless Blues Chair is the direct result of more than 35 years of refining what Ekornes has preached all along. Slightly contemporary in its overall design, the wood frame and plush upholstery are reminders of the Stressless Blues Chair's luxurious quality.
Ekornes introduced the Stressless chair in 1971, meticulously developing and designing the chair to provide your body with the ultimate in comfort and support while sitting upright or reclined. This revolutionary design has made Stressless the ultimate recliner for the past 35 years.

About The ManufacturerEkornes® Stressless®
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.
Ekornes is a Norwegian company, and they made their name and reputation on the Stressless line of home furnishings. While the Stressless Recliner is undoubtedly their most significant product in a historical sense, the Ekornes Stressless Sofa concedes no ground when it comes to the three most important aspects of home furnishing design; comfort, support, and style. In this sense the sofas are not redundant products, but serious and inspired variations and continuations on a theme; total comfort, total relaxation, total balance and fit. The principles of the Ekornes lines were laid out in detail with the first recliners, but only with the advent of the Ekornes Stressless Sofa has the fullness of their vision come into clear focus.
