Ekornes has been the leader in fine Norwegian furniture for the past 70 years, specializing in the Stressless line of home theater seating and recliners since 1972. I have personally been an Ekornes Stressless owner for the past 15 years and can attest to the exceptional value and ergonomic features their furniture offers. Ekornes revealed their newest offering to the American market after a well received debut in Europe this past September at the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina. The “Jazz” series has a much more glamorous look than the other Stressless recliners with its modern lines and special features. Ekornes added an upholstered leather base on the recliner and ottoman and a height adjustable center post that connects to the bowed chromed supports. Jazz has all of their standard features like a tilt ottoman, sleep and plus mechanism headrest, height adjustable headrest, and self adjusting lower lumbar support. The Jazz comes in two sizes to fit any of its prospective owners, and I can say with all honesty it feels as good as it looks!! Due in stores early 2008 for an estimated $3500.
