Stressless® Recliners by Ekornes may very well be the ultimate progression of the storied recliner chair.
While these leather chairs and ottomans are the ultimate in modern beauty, the luxurious Scandinavian chairs offer many hidden benefits that go well beyond the aesthetic. As an authorized Stressless® retailer, Baer’s Furniture can help outfit your home with the ergonomic perfection of these prized furniture pieces.
Ekornes Furniture — the company that makes Stressless® chairs, ottomans, and other ergonomic furniture — was founded by Jens E. Ekornes in Sykkylven, Norway in 1934.
Initially, Ekornes produced mattresses and box springs, but in 1971, the Scandinavian company secured a patent for what would eventually become known as the Stressless® Chair. After decades of selling millions of chairs to the world, in 1996, the Norwegian company began making their popular chairs available in two or three sizes, depending on the model, to accommodate varying body types. In 2003, the Stressless® Chair was endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association due to its advanced ergonomic benefits.
Today, select retailers, like Baer’s Furniture, are able to offer this back-saving technology, allowing their customers to purchase beautifully-designed furniture that also promotes lumbar health.
There’s a reason why the Stressless® brand has become synonymous with superior ergonomics. These are the features that you’ll find in their products.
The Plus™ System is a unique innovation that allows the head support to move when the chair reclines or inclines. With most seats, the headrest moves with the back. In Stressless® chairs, the headrest stays with the head, so when you move or adjust your body, your eyes stay focused on your television or reading materials, and your head remains supported.
Many chairs offer lumbar support, but few adjust automatically as the chair reclines. With Stressless® chairs, the chair smoothly responds when you lean back, but the lumbar support also moves to support your lower back continuously.
With the Glide System, each chair is equipped with dual tension knobs. Once you set these knobs, your chair is set for your body weight and desired tension. This allows you to recline in your seat with minimum effort and zero strain on the back. Stressless® ottomans also have the Glide System, and the resting surface of your ottoman will tilt with your legs to offer maximum support and comfort.
Stressless® chairs have a perforated foam core that’s contoured to a steel frame. This is covered with a polyurethane foam pad that allows you to sink deeply into the chair and for the seat and back to adjust to your body. A concealed swivel ring permits the chair to turn 360 degrees. The two-stem base provides additional stability.
Choose from four different types of leather upholsteries in a wide array of colors. All Stressless® chairs have soft leather upholstery that feels amazing against the skin. Additionally, the wooden bases for both the chairs and ottomans are available in different shades.
In order to maximize the benefits of owning a Stressless® chair, we recommend that you follow these steps. A Baer’s Furniture representative can help you with the various options.
