Stressless London High-Back Chair and Ottoman
London is a bustling city that's known for its high culture and fashion-forwardness. The London high back chair by Stressless is an extension of that haute couture that makes it one of the most travelled cities in the world. The retro tufts add depth and style while the generously proportioned headrest provides the ideal resting place for your head while you're contemplating life's most perplexing questions. What are the implications of the Platonic ideal on post-structuralist Foucaultian metaphysics? How is one to reconcile the ever widening gulf between rival political factions in a post-modern media landscape? What's Kanye West thinking?? These are just a few of the things you can comfortably contemplate while reclining in the London High-Back Chair by Stressless.
The Stressless London High-Back Chair is also available with a low-back.

Leather is a beautiful, vibrant and durable upholstery material. The play of color in the leather and the natural markings make each piece of furniture unique. Ekornes® buys upholstery leather from leading tanneries throughout the world. Our hide selection process, overseen by our own inspectors, utilizes the most stringent international quality control standards.
A corrected through-dyed, pigmented and grain embossed upholstery leather, which has had most of its natural marks removed. A protective layer of lacquer allows spills to be easily removed. Easy to clean and attractively priced, Batick is a popular choice for those who want a more resilient leather.
Cori is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather. Cori has a substantial body and a distinct pebbled grain. Most of its natural marks are removed. Cori has a tip-shine which adds depth and character to the surface. Some colours have two-tone/ tone on tone-effect. A protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Cori is a wise choice if you want leather with excellent utilisation properties, a robust structure and an exclusive look.
A through-dyed upholstery leather with a combination of dyes and pigments in the finish. Paloma has a natural grain pattern and visible natural marks. The light finish improves the leather’s physical properties and yields a more uniform color. With its rich, luxurious feel, Paloma is the preferred choice of those who want a soft, authentic look in a leather that breathes well.
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.
