Stressless

The Brand

Crafting furniture is wound deeply in our Nordic roots and tells the story of who we are. It is a craftsmanship perfected by our families over time. We cherish its impact on our heritage and lift it up with pride. Fine furniture is an art passed down from generation to generation with a rich history of trials and tribulations. After all, designing the most comfortable seating in the world did not just happen overnight.  Creating the ultimate comfort experience has taken decades to perfect. Born from necessity and opportunity, Sykkylven is the epicenter of Norway’s furniture manufacturing industry and home to Ekornes for more than 80 years. The town’s magnificent land with breathtaking views and serene natural beauty is where a revolution of Scandinavian design began.

 

The
Story

The Story

It’s time to take a break, it’s time for me, it’s time for Stressless!

The practice of building fine Norwegian furniture was the outcome of lineage rights in this small farming community. It all started with second sons. These were the sons who would not inherit the family farm and were left with no way to provide for families of their own. The second sons took their position in stride and learned to pave the way for themselves. They were nimble, innovative and extremely creative. These practical thinkers left the land in the hands of their older brothers. They took the resources they had and went inside to the barns where they started building furniture. They became designers and engineers, played with art and science and over time they mastered the clean, streamlined and functional designs iconic to Norwegian home décor.
