The Collection

Leather and Wood

Your next Stressless chair or sofa comes in more than 100 vibrant colors! Stressless provide four leather qualities to suit all your comfort and decorating needs. The Stressless chairs with the characteristic hour glass base use European high-quality beech wood in a choice of wood finish.


Batick is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather, which has had most of its natural marks removed. Read More

Batick may have a two-tone colour effect to liven up the surface. Batick is resistant to fading, although changes in colour will occur over time due to use and exposure to light. A protective layer of lacquer simplifies cleaning. Simple cleaning, excellent utilisation properties and a favourable price make Batick a good choice.


Cori is a corrected, pigment improved and grain embossed upholstery leather. Cori has a substantial body and a distinct pebbled grain. Read More

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.


Paloma is a slightly corrected leather with a combination of dyes and pigments that smoothes down some of the structure (the grain pattern) of the leather. Read More

The grain structure in Paloma may however vary a little at some parts of the furniture and also minor colour nuances may appear in the leather. Natural marks, scars and insect bites are natural and will appear in Paloma. A thin coat of lacquer gives Paloma some protection and simplifies cleaning, but Paloma does not have the same heavy duty quality and protection as Batick and Classic. Due to its soft, natural and comfortable expression, Paloma is a very popular choice.


Noblesse is the most exclusive leather offered by Ekornes. It is a full grain semi-aniline, meaning it is dyed all the way through and has only a thin protective topcoat. Read More

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 colour 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.


The stressless base is made from laminated European beech, a light colored wood with an attractive grain, exceptionally suitable for staining in various colours. Also, the strength of the wood makes beech furniture extremely durable.


The story

Ekornes Stressless is a name that has become synonymous with precise style, comfort and functionality. We’ve worked with this prestigious company since the early Seventies when the Stressless range was first introduced, which has gone on to become one of the world’s most recognised brands.

Our staff are often invited to the Ekornes factories to learn about superb new developments in design and construction. The company’s focus on innovative comfort is uncompromising – and goes a long way to explaining why Stressless continues to be the world’s ultimate recliner.


Stressless was introduced in 1971, as the first recliner designed to meet your body’s need for movement and support when seated. The characteristic TV-recliner was a revolution in comfort and functionality, and soon became an international success.Offering patented features you won’t find on other recliners, from the glide system that follows your slightest movements, to the Plus™ system for correct neck and lumbar support in every position, Stressless® is still known as the ultimate recliner.

The first Stressless was launched in Norway and immediately became the first real TV chair. You could lean backwards and rest, watch TV in comfort or turn around to face the coffee table with one easy movement. The patented sliding system attracted a great deal of attention and is still unique.
