Are Ekornes chairs worth the price?

July 13, 2015


If you are searching for the best in furniture, there is no doubt you’ve heard of Ekornes—the famous Norwegian luxury furniture company founded in 1934. For over 80 years, their furniture has been considered among the world’s best—and their innovative and influential Stressless recliner released in 1971 cemented that position.

As with any investment, however, one must consider the cost versus the benefit.  Many people are hesitant to purchase Ekornes furniture because of the price tag they carry. Are they really worth it?

Here are 4 reasons why the answer is yes:

#4:           High quality=long life

Though the initial price tag may be relatively high, Ekornes is dedicated to constructing furniture built to last a lifetime. In the long run, buying Ekornes once will be cheaper than buying a new lower quality piece every few years.


#3:           Comfort and support

 Using specially patented technology such as the Plus™ Spring System and the unique Comfort-Zones™ foam, Ekornes creates comfortable, supportive, and healthy furniture unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.


#2             Environmentally and socially conscious

When you buy from Ekornes, you’re investing not only in your comfort, your home and your health; you’re also investing in a better world. Ekornes is dedicated to a green production process—recycling scraps, reducing emissions, and donating a portion of their profits to environmental charities. What’s more, Ekornes participates in the UN’s Global Compact initiative: a voluntary step towards protecting human rights everywhere.


  #1           Style and selection

 Put simply, Ekornes furniture just looks great. With a storied history of ascetic innovation and a design team influenced by sources as diverse as architecture, fashion, and furniture; it’s hard to deny that Ekornes is a step ahead of the rest. With dozens of designs to choose from, you’re sure to find the furniture that’s perfect for you.
