Stressless Wave Chair, Highback
by Ekornes

The Wave Stressless Chair is a slightly different breed than it's fellow Stressless Chairs. The difference is in the look and feel of the product. While the line is committed to leather upholstery and wooden accents, they are also typically committed to a bit of funkiness in the design. The chairs are classic and modern, but oftentimes they eschew the trappings of the traditional armchair (like a completely upholstered structure) for the breezy look and "floating" quality of a Stressless. This has been true ever since the 1971 debut of the chair, but it's not so for the Wave.

The Wave Stressless Chair is unique in the line, as it closely resembles and in many places improves upon the more traditional armchair, and not the traditional recliner. The sides and support for the chair are squared, go all the way to the floor, and create a boxed look that meshes perfectly with modern furniture design. The chair is richly and luxuriously appointed (not always a hallmark of modernity), however, and comes with all the internal features of a Stressless that people the world over have come to know and love. The Glide system and the Plus system inform the ergonomic engineering of the chair, and the soft leather upholstery is a signature as well. This is a Stressless Chair fit for a living room or a boardroom, styled to perfection but still as comfortable, reclinable, and supportive as it always was.

About The Manufacturer

Ekornes StresslessEkornes® 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.

Design Story

Every Wave Stressless Chair is committed to three things; comfort, support, and style. You can feel the Ekornes committment to comfort as soon as you touch the chair and feel the rich leather upholstery. You can feel it in the give of the seat and the back, as well as the effortless and personal recline function. Your head, neck and shoulders, the bearers of so much stress during the day, will be at full relaxation mode when they're lying in a Wave Stressless Chair. The recline function is unique because of the Glide system, which after a single, simple adjustment at the beginning of the chair's life will automatically read your body and recline appropriately at all times, based on your particular wants and needs.

The Plus system is involved mainly in proper support, especially back support. The Wave Stressless Chair is dedicated to keeping you in good health, and a good portion of the ergonomic effort expended on the chair has gone to ensuring back, shoulder, neck and head support. The Plus system moves automatically to fill or create space between your lumbar region and the backing of the chair. It also adjusts the headrest to create the optimum comfort and support dynamic for your head, neck and shoulders.

And as far as style, the Wave Stressless Chair is very hard to beat. The elegant, simple design composed of the softest, most luxurious leather is perfect for any home, any office, and any boardroom. Smart Furniture is proud to offer our customers the Wave Stressless Chair.
