Stressless Sunrise Chair Medium and Ottoman, Leather
by Ekornes Stressless
At A Glance:
Whether you like waking up early or not, the Sunrise Chair is worth getting up for (or, more appropriately, "sitting down for"). Sunrise or sunset, it's comfortable all day long. Featuring horizontal lines and an expansive appearance, Sunrise is an original in the Stressless line. The rich padding that combines with the leather to produce that unmistakable Stressless feeling is "stretched" across the back, rather than along the more up-and-down lines adopted by much of the rest of the series.
The Sunrise Chair is available in three different sizes to accommodate a wide range of users. Shown here is the Medium Sunrise Chair, but the Sunrise Small and Sunrise Large are also available.
If you're looking for the Sunrise Chair Small with Signature Base, you can find it HERE.
What's To Like:
The recline function (the Glide System) reacts to shifts in your body weight. This means you never have to hold tension in your body, like you would in many other recliners. Your head, neck, and shoulders are supported well by the Stressless Sunrise Chair's headrest. The headrest moves with the chair to keep your head supported in a reading position with your neck muscles relaxed. As an alternative, you can drop the headrest if you'd like to lie almost fully flat. The Plus system within the chair controls lumbar region support, so that whenever you need it, the chair moves to support your lower back. And all that's not even getting into the way the chair looks! It's refined-looking, like it belongs in the home of someone who appreciates the finer things - like you do.
What's Not to Like:
We're not going to be able to knock this recliner's comfort. It's straight-up luxurious. So it's all a matter of taste at this point. If you don't like its look, then that's what's not to like. We don't think that the price tag is an issue here because of the incredible value a Stressless recliner is in terms of comfort and durability.
The Bottom Line:
The chair is beautifully made, and is perfect for someone with high-class taste living on a middle class budget. It's easy to picture yourself sinking into the Stressless Sunrise Chair after a long day at the office - or in the morning with a cup of coffee and the news.
Ekornes introduced the Stressless chair in 1971, meticulously developing and designing the chair to provide your body with the ultimate in comfort and support while sitting upright or reclined. This revolutionary design has made Stressless the ultimate recliner for the past 35 years.

Optional Swing Table
The Stressless Swing Table is a round side table that attaches to the side of most Stressless recliners.
Designed with convenience and comfort in mind, the Swing Table is roomy enough for a number of items you'd normally keep on your end table, such as drinks, books, or remote controls. There's no better way to keep these items within arm's reach while staying relaxed. The Swing Table is also a great way to save space, as it can eliminate the need for an end table next to your recliner.
Available in 7 wood finishes, the Swing Table is compatible with most Stressless recliners.

A luxurious, full grain aniline leather, Pioneer retains the original grain of the leather, and is treated with oils, waxes, and transparent dyes. It is made to enhance the soft touch and natural appeal of the leather, offering vibrant colors and a beautiful luster. This leather will gain patina and become more beautiful with time. However, the delicate finish of Pioneer Leather offers just a slight protection. It can absorb moisture easily and is vulnerable to heat, sunlight, and spills.
Noblesse is the most exclusive leather quality offered by Ekornes. It is a full grain semi-aniline, which means that it is dyed all the way through and has only a thin protective topcoat. This allows the leather to keep the natural softness and lustre that characterises a first-class furniture leather. A natural material like Noblesse retains its original grain and structure. Minor color nuances and skin blemishes may also occur. Such individual details could lead to slight variations in different parts of the furniture cover. Although the topcoat provides a measure of protection, Noblesse is the most delicate of the leather qualities that Ekornes uses. It absorbs moisture easily, and is more vulnerable to wear and tear, heat, sunlight, spills and perspiration. Regular maintenance is important to keep its attractive appearance.
