Making it Better.

Under the surface of supple leather and cozy fabric lies true engineering genius. From multifaceted sets of springs to foam that contours to your body, every aspect that goes into a piece of Stressless furniture is deliberately assembled to bring you an unparalleled seating experience. Understanding the science of comfort and movement fueled our innovative spirit and desire to design the most comfortable, unique furniture in the world.

Beginning with a core built with rigid European beech, wood workers create sturdy bases with elegant curves and our distinctive swivel ring. The wood is then stained to sheer perfection and inspected to eliminate flaws.

Wood workers create sturdy bases with elegant curves and our distinctive swivel ring Robots expertly construct specific parts of the furniture.

Atop this solid base is a complex system of springs, foam and one continuous steel rod to support the entire structure. The intricate arrangement of springs includes the ultimate flexible lumbar spring in the Plus™ System, which cradles the back, neck and head for the optimal support in any recline position. The single steel rod base is created with a unique cold bending process. The process is more difficult, but it makes the product more durable.

Next, we layer foam to create the softest, most conforming seat possible. Our Comfort-Zones™ foam is molded directly over the steel base with perforations that ensure identical air pockets. This consistency ensures the foam’s ventilation and a long lasting cushion. Two more layers of foam are fashioned above that to ensure the seat is protected and fully functional.

Top-grain leather is extensively tested for color consistency, durability and elasticity.  These hides, coming from the world’s finest tanneries, are then cut and stretched over the foam and sewn by our own seamstresses.

After robots expertly construct each part of the furniture, each section is assembled by hand, completing the process with extensive inspection to ensure the highest quality products – an added level of devotion required when creating the world’s smartest and most comfortable furniture.

From our factory to your home, these pieces were developed with inspired engineering to make sure that our newest chair becomes your favorite chair.
