Celebrating 50 Years of Stressless

Across the North Sea, and on Norway’s west coast lies the small town of Sykkylven, the birthplace of an extremely comfortable swivel chair, Stressless®. In 1971 a new standard was set in comfort and functionality when a revolutionary recliner was designed. Stressless® was created to bring its user precious ‘me-time’ and enhance wellbeing in our non-stop, busy world. It was inspired in equal parts by the area’s skilled craftspeople and from the surrounding nature itself. 50 years later, Norway’s largest furniture exporter remains in the fjord and offers handcrafted, exclusive comfort. An important milestone in any business’ history and heritage, 50 years marks the commitment and dedication the company has put into each aspect of the furniture’s creation. Our exclusive collection of Stressless® chairs came about from a shared passion for style, comfort and quality craftsmanship. Like ourselves, they have a prestigious history of understanding the science of comfort and movement whilst seated. In celebration of 50 years of Stressless®, learn more about their heritage below, with a little snapshot of what our customers have said about them and the service they received:
