It takes the best of recliners, salons and home theater furniture to recruit the best personnel.
John Terje Drege, Sales Manager for Ekornes' Contract division, notes an increasing interest for comfortable furniture from shipping companies. -Old vessels are upgraded with more exclusive furniture, and inviting facilities for the ship's crew members are important for new projects. This is related to the lack of crew in the business, and high standard onboard the vessels is positive when it comes to attracting the best crew.
The latest delivery from Ekornes Contract went to the seismic ship "Ramform Sterling", built by STX Europe for PGS. The ship's crew can enjoy Stressless Arion home theater furniture in their own cinema audotorium and Stressless recliners and reclining sofas in the cabins.
Furniture from Ekornes were also chosen for the offshore vessel "Sarah", built by Ulstein Verft for Marine Subsea. The award-winning recliner Stressless Jazz
and the reclining sofa Stressless Wave
are some of the models found on this ship.
