The Haskins team is proud to have been the largest stockist of Stressless furniture in Somerset since the 1930s and we’re so excited to be joining in with the global celebrations of the brand’s 50th anniversary!

This milestone event marks five decades of innovation, craftsmanship and distinctive Norwegian design – a powerful combination that has made Stressless one of the most celebrated furniture companies in the world.

What makes Stressless furniture unique?

If you’ve ever owned a piece of Stressless furniture, you’ll have experienced first-hand the second-to-none comfort the brand is famous for.

In 1971, Stressless founder Jens E. Ekornes set out to produce the world’s most comfortable chairs, sofas and dining chairs. His philosophy was that daily relaxation is essential to human well-being, and this shaped his mission to harness the science of comfort and movement and bring complete relaxation into his customers’ lives.

And that’s exactly what the brand has been doing ever since.

50 years of Stressless innovation

Stressless was introduced to the world as the first recliner designed to meet the human body’s need for movement and support when seated. Over the years, the company has continued to combine the study of human anatomy with engineering expertise. The result is a range of patented technologies and innovative features that allow Stressless recliners, sofas and chairs to adjust with almost every movement of the body.

50 years of Stressless craftsmanship

There are two generations of expertise among Stressless employees, and this experience is poured into the manufacture of every single product. Specialists in woodworking, design, engineering and upholstery work in harmony with state-of-the-art technology to ensure every chair, sofa and dining chair meets the rigorous quality standards the company sets itself.

From the unique wood-processing technology that gives Stressless frames extra strength, to the meticulously selected leather that’s wear-tested 24,000 times, this is furniture that’s built to last a lifetime.

50 years of Norwegian design

Stressless design has always stayed true to the company’s Nordic roots, continuing the rich tradition of Norwegian design that’s internationally renowned as the perfect fusion of style, functionality and quality.

Inspiration for the clean, minimalist aesthetic of Stressless furniture comes from nature. In particular, from the magnificent fjord, breath-taking mountains and dramatic coastline that define the Sykkylven municipality in Norway: the home of Stressless for five decades.
