As ‘the world’s most comfortable chair’, Stressless® recliners are the only product endorsed by the Chiropractors Association of Australia. Stressless® was introduced in 1971, as the first recliner designed to meet your body’s need for movement and support when seated. The characteristic 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.
