What is a Stressless Recliner?

When you hear the word recliner, what do you imagine? Do you visualize an oversized chair, which looks like a certain tire manufacturer’s mascot? Or a chair that requires unnatural strength to open and close? If these are the thoughts forming, when you hear the word ‘recliner’, fortunately, you are not alone.

Thankfully, the fine people at Ekornes developed a product that surpasses all other competitors in the recliner industry. Ekornes is the company responsible for creating the world-renowned Stressless recliner. An Ekornes Stressless recliner is one of the greatest chairs ever made by mankind! You can find Stressless Recliners Toronto at our three locations in Burlington, Newmarket, and Toronto/Scarborough.

You may be wondering, what is so unique about this chair? It starts with the fundamental design of the chair.


1 – The perforated foam, moulded directly over the frame, gives you better seating comfort as the indentations let you sink deeper into the seat and back of the recliner. Comfort Zones™ (pat. pend.) provide you with a proper contour for your body; they give good ventilation and guarantee that the cushions will be long-lasting and forever comfortable.

2 – A soft polyurethane foam pad ensures optimum softness.

3 – The pad of soft polyurethane foam is covered by a layer of super-soft polyester fibre, for a real touch of luxury.

4 – Flexo springs on a steel frame ensure durable construction and strength.

5 – The Plus™ system automatically provides correct support for your head and lower back. The function is double-sided for maximum stability, functionality and lifetime use.

6 – Only genuine top-grain leather covers the front and back of Stressless chairs.

7 – The Stressless glide system automatically adjusts to your body weight, with no buttons or levers to pull.

8 – The two-stem base offers far smoother turning and stability than the one-stem swivels fitted on most recliners.

9 – The concealed swivel ring means that you can easily turn full circle. And the gracefully curved shape of the base is designed for great strength and durability.

Scan Decor offers Ekornes Stressless recliners in two or three sizes, providing a tailored fit.
