At A Glance:
As an international brand, Stressless has done a fitting thing in naming three of its chairs after international-relations public servants. The Diplomat, Ambassador, and Consul chairs are all part of the same style family, but in different sizes. The Diplomat chair is the small-sized chair of the bunch, and is perfectly suited to a comfortable domestic life.
At A Glance:
With a neatly tucked-in look and the undeniable appearance of comfort, you'd think the Voyager Chair would be supremely comfortable. And you'd be right. Not only is it one of the most comfortable recliners in the world, but it's also one of the most comfortable Stressless chairs - and that's quite a feat. Voyager has a tapering headrest, which slims down its overall profile and, as always, comes with an amply padded ottoman.
Like most Stressless chairs, the Voyager Chair is available in multiple sizes. The Voyager Medium Chair and Ottoman is the smaller version, and together, the two recliners make up the Voyager 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 Voyager 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 Voyager Chair after a long day at the office - or in the morning with a cup of coffee and the news.
