Stressless Consul Chair Large and Ottoman, Leather Upholstery
by Ekornes Stressless

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 Consul Small, Consul Medium, and Consul Large chairs are all part of the same style family, but in different sizes. The Consul Large chair is the large-sized chair of the bunch, and is perfectly suited to a comfortable domestic life.

Also available are the Consul Small and the Consul Medium.

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 Consul 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 Consul 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 Consul 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.

The Stressless Consul Chair Large was formerly known as the Ambassador Chair.

Features:

  • Chair dimensions: 39.25" h x 33.5" w x 30.25" d
  • Ottoman dimensions: 15" h x 21.25" w x 15.25" d
  • Seat height: 16.5" h
  • Stressless Glide System: allows you to adjust the glide setting so you can automatically shift to any seating position by simply using your body weight.
  • Plus System: automatically provides correct support for your head and lumbar area in all positions. The lower back support adjusts in parallel with the headrest, so you can enjoy perfect support, whether you are sitting in an upright or reclining position.
  • ErgoAdapt: seat tilts down automatically the moment you sit down, providing the most comfortable sitting angle. If you prefer to lie down, the seat elevates to the completely flat position.
  • Upholstered in your choice of leather or fabric
  • Cushioned with two layers of foam
  • Glide system within the chair is made of sturdy steel
  • Strong, high-quality bent plywood base swivels and provides excellent stability

Optional Swing Table

The Stressless Swing Table is a round side table that attaches to the side of most Stressless recliners.

Designed with convenience and comfort in mind, the Swing Table is roomy enough for a number of items you'd normally keep on your end table, such as drinks, books, or remote controls. There's no better way to keep these items within arm's reach while staying relaxed. The Swing Table is also a great way to save space, as it can eliminate the need for an end table next to your recliner.

Available in 7 wood finishes, the Swing Table is compatible with most Stressless recliners.

Comments about Ekornes Stressless Ambassador Chair and Ottoman:

My wife and I first bought two of these great Stressless chairs about 20 years ago and we both love them. I bought this chair to replace my old chair because the leather was showing wear (I wanted to replace it while I could still use the old one as a spare). Her chair is still in good shape. The color matches good, but the old ones are a lot shinier due to wear (the backs look really close). Smart Furniture was great, and communicated well during the whole special order process. They even assembled the chair before shipping it to me!

    Comments about Ekornes Stressless Ambassador Chair and Ottoman:

    I bought this chair because my back ached when I sat on our couch. So glad I did. My back feels so much better when I sit in this chair. I love it. So comfy! The only problem we had was slight. The screws on one of the arm rests had never been tightened. Being unusual screws, we had to go buy the right tool to tighten them.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Our chair arrived in perfect condition and within the estimated time frame. The delivery driver was very friendly and helped us to inspect the chair before he left.

        I'm retired army specops and my back has taken a beating along with every joint in my body. I have wasted money on several chairs trying to find a comfortable chair and I finally found one. The Ambassador Chair is the least expensive large chair, still very expensive, but I'm considering buying a chair the next level up. If you have back problems, I would recommend considering a stressless chair.

            This is the chair I've been waiting for all of my life! It's perfect for watching TV, reading, working on my computer, beading... It fits me perfectly and since I have had it, I have not had issue with my back or hip - which I have spent many, many hours in therapy for!

            Being so well built, I know that this chair will last for decades to come - and I couldn't be more pleased!

              Comments about Ekornes Stressless Ambassador Chair and Ottoman:

              I wanted a chair for lounging, listening to headphones, and reading. I am 6'5, so finding a chair that fits is sometimes difficult. Many chairs have a leg rest that pops out and my feet and calves usually hang off too much and I get uncomfortable.

              I decided to buy a chair with an ottoman, so I could place it where I wanted. After consulting with Natalie at Smart Furniture, I decided on the the Ambassador. The Ambassador's ottoman works for my purposes and it even has a lever that allows it to adjust with you, just like the chair!

              Personally, I like the more conservative styling of the Ambassador more than some of the more modern chairs that have a lot more loose material. The fact that it was less expensive was just icing on the cake!

              The chair has a couple of adjustments that help, too. You can adjust the tension of the lounge mechanism so that it is easier or harder to slide in lounge position. Also, the headrest naturally props your head up, so it is great for working on a laptop (especially with the personal table), but it can also be adjusted to lay completely back for when you just want to relax.

              Since I am tall, I also bought the risers for the chair and the ottoman. For someone my height, the ability to buy a large chair and even make it bigger is like a dream come true. If you haven't figured it out yet, I am very happy with the chair and Smart Furniture.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery worked without a hitch. The company called a couple of days ahead of time and they delivered it inside the window they gave me.

              The chair, risers, and personal table all arrived in good condition.

              I did use customer service at Smart Furniture and they helped me pick out a chair and place the order. They also professionally handled a last minute change to my order. Natalie was my main rep and she was very helpful from the start of my search and she went above and beyond to make me happy.

              Comments about Ekornes Stressless Ambassador Chair and Ottoman:

              First Impressions
              Another in a long line of Ekornes Stressless Chairs, the Ambassador Stressless Chair is a worthy entry in the canon. It's a more structured piece than the Vegas, eschewing some of the padding and "luxury look" many of the Stressless Chairs have. There are gaps in the chair under the arms and the wooden accents and recline mechanisms play a larger role in the look of the Ambassador; but that's all to the good.

              The Ambassador Stressless Chair is a handsome, if unassuming, recliner. Being able to see the processes behind it don't detract from it's simple attractiveness, and the restrained upholstery (available in a range of colors) keeps it tight and focused.

              In terms of comfort, the Ambassador really comes through. Without the somewhat slippery effect given by loose upholstery and padding, the chair is able to be more supportive and more responsive. It's also more accurate; the chair reads your body and reclines on command, and because in this chair you're more securely "held" by the materials, the reading is a lot more accurate, providing better comfort and responsiveness.

              Ekornes has produced a lot of Stressless models over the years, and the Ambassador is just one more of which they can be justly proud.

              Second Opinion
              I loved the Ambassador. While I don't necessarily agree that it's an improvement over the Vegas, I really have no complaints on it's individual merits.
