Stressless Consul Chair Medium with LegComfort Base by Ekornes
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 Medium chair is the medium-sized chair of the bunch, and is perfectly suited to a comfortable domestic life.
Who thought that Stressless chairs could get any better? Now, they have. LegComfort™ has arrived, and boy it is something. When not in use, the leg rest is tucked under the chair, and quickly unfurls in 10 seconds after light pressure is applied to the elegantly integrated buttons on the side of the seat. The front of the footrest is designed for any body of any stature. Once inclined, the footrest can extend another 4.72” to accommodate long or short legs. The front of the foot rest is angled for maximum comfort, allowing the natural movement of ankles in all positions. The slim design of the footrest makes it easy to hop out of the chair at any time.
The LegComfort™ system is combined with the celebrated Stressless® Glide and Plus systems. This ensures that the lower back and neck are perfectly supported in every position, while the seat and back effortlessly follow your every movement.
LegComfort™ can be ordered with an electrical wall cord or with a battery. The battery will just need to be charged for a full 24 hours, and then once every 3-4 weeks. You can always buy the battery at a later time, it’s ordered like any other Stressless accessory! The motor and all electrical parts are warrantied for 5 years from purchase date. The LegComfort™ battery pack is warrantied 2 years from purchase date.

Cori has a tip-shine which adds depth and character to the surface. Some colors have two-tone/ tone-on-tone effect. A protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning.
Noblesse is the most exclusive leather quality offered by Ekornes. It is a full grain semi-aniline, which means that it is dyed all the way through and has only a thin protective topcoat. This allows the leather to keep the natural softness and lustre that characterises a first-class furniture leather. A natural material like Noblesse retains its original grain and structure. Minor color nuances and skin blemishes may also occur. Such individual details could lead to slight variations in different parts of the furniture cover. Although the topcoat provides a measure of protection, Noblesse is the most delicate of the leather qualities that Ekornes uses. It absorbs moisture easily, and is more vulnerable to wear and tear, heat, sunlight, spills and perspiration. Regular maintenance is important to keep its attractive appearance.
