Our goal

Our pledge to the environment is through furniture that spans generations. When you purchase Stressless® furniture, you choose quality that will serve you through a lifetime. We continuously thrive to improve the efficiency – any measure that enhances quality and reduces energy, time and wastage, is a step closer to creating superior furniture that endures.

100% clean energy

We are from a beautiful place surrounded by majestic mountains, deep fjords and waterfalls all reminding us to protect this inspiring environment around us. 100% of the power supplied to our Stressless® factories in Norway come from hydropower; a renewable energy source generated by an endless water cycle. When you purchase Stressless® furniture, you are not only investing in your comfort but also making a sustainable and responsible choice.

Our production

Our wooden offcuts are regenerated into heating our factory and any surplus heat is used for district heating for homes and the local outdoor pool. Even our simple efforts such as using recycled materials for packaging and using leftover foam for armrests and footrests are all contributing to make a difference. Our more complicated closed loop system allows us to clean the steel without releasing toxins and our use of water-based paints and lacquers have the same benefit.

Environmental and social responsibilities
