Stressless Mayfair Chair Medium and Ottoman, Leather
by Ekornes Stressless

At A Glance:
The Mayfair Stressless Chair is named after a smaller part of London, right in the center. It's right down the middle in a lot of other ways as well - right down the middle when it comes to size, height, and width, and right down the middle when it comes to high end comfort. This is the one of the most popular medium sized chairs in the Stressless stable, as it provides all the comfort of the traditional Ekornes product in a package that works for a majority of buyers.

For most consumers, this will be the most comfortable chair in the Mayfair group, because of its slightly smaller size. Medium is another word for mathematical average, and that means more buyers fit perfectly in this chair than in the small or larger version.

The Mayfair Chair Medium is part of the Mayfair Chair Collection. Mayfair Medium is the medium sized member of the three recliners; also available are the Mayfair Small and the Mayfair Large.

If you're looking for the Mayfair Chair Medium with Signature base, you can find it HERE.

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 Mayfair 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:
With a striking combination of comfort, function, and balanced good looks, the Stressless Mayfair 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 Mayfair 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.


  • Chair dimensions: 40.5" h x 32" w x 28.75" d
  • Ottoman dimensions: 15" h x 21.75" w x 15.25" d
  • Seat height: 15.75" 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.

Poor Quality Control


from NJ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Ekornes Stressless Mayfair Chair and Ottoman:

This is my second Stressless chair. I find them to be some of the most comfortable chairs I've tried, and have therefore found they justify the cost...and wait?
The first time I bought one, it was in stock - immediate gratification! This time it was 'Special Order' so I was told 3 months.

3 months and a couple of thousand dollars later, the chair arrives, and the leather under one of the armrests is not properly attached...and it's Obvious. For less money, one usually gets a mass produced item, understanding there are often quality control 'issues.' But a Special Order? Making just one at a time, taking 3 months, and NO ONE at Stressless found this flaw?

Now I'm waiting 2 more months for a replacement arm, and I'm 'hopeful' the dye matches.
The word Unacceptable immediately comes to mind...Gets 2 stars because it is comfortable, but for this price and lead time, I'd shop other brands next time.

    My second Stressless Lounger. Still a great, comfortable product. Mid-century modern looks compatible with my tastes.

    Service and delivery comments:

    It takes a long time to have the product delivered if you do not purchase an in-stock item. My wait time was 3 months.

        Yes, both knobs on all Stressless chairs do the same thing. They are tension knobs that can turn slightly to make leaning back custom to your body weight or tighten down all the way to either lock the chair upright or leaned back.

    The internal mechanism of Stressless recliners is warranted for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase. The 10 year guarantee covers the Plus system and the internal metal frame, including the metal springs and gliding system. The warranty does not cover damage to leather, fabric or wood components.
