Taurus Chair and Ottoman, Leather by Ekornes Stressless
At A Glance: The look of the Taurus Stressless Chair is classic and futuristic at the same time. It recalls the grand upholstered chairs of some space operas, as well as the classic structure and simplicity of good American design. The Taurus is special among its fellow Stressless chairs in its wide-backed, smooth seat. It offers all the same ergonomic excellence, comfort and support, but does it in a more stylish, undeniably cool mode.
Like most Stressless chairs, the Taurus Chair is available in multiple sizes. The Orion Chair is the smaller version of the Taurus Chair, and together, the two recliners make up the Taurus Collection.
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 Taurus 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 straight-up luxurious. 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: The chair is beautifully made, and is perfect for someone with high-class taste living on a middle class budget. It's easy to picture yourself sinking into the Stressless Taurus Chair after a long day at the office - or in the morning with a cup of coffee and the news.

Stressless recliners and sofas have been synonymous with comfort since the company's inception in 1971. Known as the "Innovators of Comfort" - Stressless' designers and engineers have succeeded in creating a recline system that provides seamless support from your knees to your head regardless of how you're sitting. The Stressless glide system - a reclining mechanism hidden beneath the chair's plush, inviting exterior, permits freedom of movement without ever giving up lumbar, head and leg support. Combined with matching ottomans, and available in numerous sizes to accommodate, Ekornes Stressless chairs and sofas will be the most relaxing recliners you've ever experienced.

Paloma Leather: An aniline-dyed upholstery leather with a combination of dyes and pigments in the finish. Paloma has a natural grain pattern with visible natural marks.
