The much sought-after Stressless recliners are now available with an innovative electric legrest adjustment.This is a treat for anyone who has enjoyed the brand since it launched in the 70s.
Stressless recliners have so far come with an optional footstool, however, with the new LegComfort adjustment there is no need to compromise between space saving and comfort.
The new LegComfort system allows the footrest to be neatly folded under the seat of the recliner when not in use. By then pressing a button on the side of the seat the legrest unfolds and extends up to the desired length.
The following video demonstrates the new technology:

Ekornes applied for a patent for Stressless in 1970 and the first chairs appeared on the Norwegian market a year later. The huge success of the Stressless chairs lead to a major expansion and the brand continued growing. In 1980, revenue for the collection exceeded NOK 100 million and in 2001 Stressless production exceeded levels of 1000 seating units per day. By 2011 Stressless had sold 6.5 million seating units and was a registred trademark in over 60 countries.
