HIGH POINT, N.C., Apr. 25, 2009 - Like a timeless blues sequence in a hit contemporary song, Ekornes Inc.'s new Stressless® Blues is at once iconic and original. In plush leather with a striking exposed stainless steel frame and base, the Stressless® Blues Chair and Ottoman enhance modern interiors with the company's trademark comfort.
"The new Blues Chair is the sister chair to our exceptionally popular Stressless Jazz," says Peter Bjerregaard, president of the American subsidiary of Ekornes Inc. "Like the Jazz, the Blues chair is musically inspired, with styling and silhouette meeting in perfect visual harmony."
Sensuous curves and sleek lines distinguish the Stressless® Blues, which comes in two sizes - medium and large - and is available in four grades of leather in 59 colors. The streamlined, gracefully curved channeled leather back is echoed in the channeled ottoman cushion. Contoured leather arms appear to float on the airy polished stainless steel frame. And, both the chair and ottoman boast round leather bases trimmed in polished stainless steel.
"The Stressless Blues is that perfect combination of beauty and comfort," Bjerregaard says. "Sculpture-like in its elegant, aesthetic simplicity, the Blues Chair also provides the unrivaled comfort for which Stressless seating is famous."
The Stressless® Blues features the patented PlusTM system, which provides continuous comfort by automatically adjusting the headrest and lumbar support as you recline. Both the recliner and freestanding ottoman can be adjusted to match height by adding or removing any of the three disks on the base ring. Like all Stressless® seating, the Stressless® Blues is endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) for proper head and lumbar support in all sitting and reclining positions.
