The dream began in 1934 when Jens E. Ekornes returned home from a trip abroad with new methods and machinery for making mattress springs. Today, almost 75 years later, that tiny mattress company has grown to become the largest furniture manufacturer in Scandinavia. Known as the Innovators of Comfort™, the company’s Stressless® seating, which was first introduced in 1971 and now containing over 40 patents, is endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) for proper head and lumbar support. Its patented Stressless® Glide System automatically adjusts to body weight to determine the proper level of support, while its patented Plus™ System determines correct headrest position. Hailed for its amazing blend of comfort and function the Stressless® recliners are the most comfortable recliner you will ever own delivering exceptional support for years to come. The secret to the 10 year internal frame warranty lies within the details. From a double steel frame that follows the natural contours of your back, keeping your spine in proper alignment.
