MODEL: Stressless (Stressless was introduced in 1971, as the first recliner designed to meet your body’s need for movement and support when seated. 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. This characteristic TV-recliner was a revolution in comfort and functionality, and soon became an international success.)
