Ekornes Stressless Governor Recliner (Senator Large) with Ottoman- 2016 Limited Edition.

This model is a large-sized seat and available in four different colors of Paloma leather. Ekornes decided back in 2008 that they would discontinue the Governor and Senator Recliners and eventually phase them out. In a surprising turn of events, these models gained fame and prestige, like never before. They became incredibly sought after and harder to find. Ekornes heard the cries of the people and brought back the Stressless Governor and its smaller sibling, The Senator, in "Limited Edition Status". This means select batches in 4 Paloma Leather Colors are available to you at clearance level prices. You instantly save a bundle off of regular retail pricing. We also encourage you to take advantage of our Fantastic, Fully-Assembled Inside Residential Delivery service and watch the savings begin to stack up quite nicely.Stressless- Legally the most comfort possible.

What makes this recliner so perfect? The short answer is everything.  No longer do the laws of gravity and aching backs have to legislate your day. As you first sit down, you will notice that the seat cushion is more padded than it appears. In fact, the very slight convex shaping of the seat lends to supporting your hips in a "Natural Position". The curvature of the edge of the seat cushion sits nicely behind your knees. Instantly you can feel the blood flow improve in your legs.

Begin to lean back and instantly your back will feel better. By better, we mean supported, reinforced and comfortable. The Governor Recliner is able to maintain a “firm approach” to supporting your body without sacrificing the “plushness” of its cushions. The semi-vertical arching seams are divisions in the Comfort Zones™. These allow your large back muscles to relax and let the chair support your body. You will feel the lumbar support adjusting and adapting to your movement as you push further back to recline and enjoy a place ruled by comfort. Once you reach the “fully reclined” position. You will notice you can still comfortably see the Television and guests in the room around you. No longer do you have to choose between ultimate comfort and your entertainment.

Ready for a nap yet? Reach back with both arms and grab onto the sides of the headrest. As you pull forwards, you will feel the headrest release and your seat will lean back even further. This is pretty much a “sure-bet” that you are heading to sleepy town. All recliners that have “Stressless” in the name have this wonderful ability.

Legislate a Healthy Back and Body with the Ekornes Stressless Governor Recliner- Available in only a few Paloma colors and with closeout pricing.

Like its smaller brother (the Stressless Senator Recliner- Medium) the Stressless Governor recliner- Large, was recently brought back by Ekornes and is being offered at pricing that just can't be beat. It's easy to see (and feel) that stature is more than a title once you sit down, kick-up your feet and feel what Norwegian comfort is really all about. The Stressless Governor Recliner has a certain "distinguished" look and feel that is sure to impress guests and daily-benefactors alike. It is often overlooked that the Ekornes Governor Recliner brings home the same back and neck-saving features that Ekornes Stressless Recliners and chairs are famous for throughout the world!

The Stressless Governor chair offers great comfort and support- especially to those who are about average in height and weight (warranty is valid for weights up to 350 pounds). Wondering whether you'd be best served in the Stressless Governor - Large or the Stressless Senator - Medium? Simply drop us a line (1-888-486-9463) or an email ( and we'll help you make the most comfortable selection for your exact size, weight and body type.

We invite you to sit down, kick-up your feet and cast your vote for the Stressless Governor recliner- You'll be glad that you did!

Here are a few of the features that make Stressless Recliners so supportive and comfortable without compromising style-

- Patented Plus System which provides continuous support for your head and lower back.
- Stressless recliners relax your entire body by providing perfect balance and optimum support.
- With the Stressless Glide System, you can automatically shift to any seating position by simply using your body weight.
- The lightweight, easily-moved ottoman also features the built-in Glide System that adjusts to your body movements for the ultimate in comfort.
- Stressless Recliners and Accessories are built to last for many, many years. A round base and support ensure stability.
-Stressless Recliners are created for a custom fit- Many of the other Stressless recliners come in three sizes (small, medium or large) and many sofas are available in two sizes (medium or large). The Governor Recliner (large) is comparable to the large versions of the other Stressless recliner lines (Stressless Vegas, Stressless Spirit etc). Both the Stressless Governor (current page) and Stressless Senator recliners share the same attributes (the Governor is a large and the Senator is a medium). For best results, take a seat and let us help you determine which size will ultimately offer the most comfort and the correct support for your individual body size and weight.

It's no wonder that Stressless Recliners are Exclusively Endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association.

    Very Comfortable Chair with fast friendly service.

    Published by James Sheridan on 19th Oct 2015

    Ordered chair on a Saturday and received it Wednesday afternoon. Chair made a noise first time I sat in it but only once. While I have only had the chair five days I find it very comfortable. Would have ordered a Senator at the same time as the Governor but they did not have my color selection in stock. Maybe another time. The sales person I spoke with on Saturday was very helpful and courteous. The gentlemen who called me on Monday to tell me my purchase was about to be shipped and I would receive an email from which I could track the shipment. I would be happy to use the Unwind company again. Very happy with their service.

    Governor is In!

    Published by George on 1st Oct 2015

    Being 5'11" I didn't have to order a special chair for my height. Comfort, better than the BIG Named brands. This line may have been discontinued, but it was a mistake. It is my perfect fit. Maybe they could reissue a limited production run every year so other big men like me might have another option.

    Very please with the chair!

    Published by Mary on 10th Sep 2015

    I was pleasantly surprised to find the Stressless Govenors chair at a much reduced price at Unwind than my local store. I was even more please that it arrived in less than a week ( 4-6 weeks from my store). The shipping was free ( $60 dollars from my store). It came in perfect condition and I loved the look of the chair with the the complimentary leather condition treatement. ( Not offered by my store and it looks amazing!) I wish I could have ordered the other chair that I bought from my local store from Unwind but they did not have the Senator style in stock. The people I spoke with at the Unwind Store to order were very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend Unwind for your furniture needs!

    Very pleased with the chair and the service

    Published by Steve on 9th Jun 2015

    I have had the chair 10 days now and like it better each day. Being disabled I spend most of the day in the chair and at the end of the day I feel much, much better than with my previous chair. I previously had a lower cost chair in a similar style that left me in alot of pain after several hours. The Governor is firm but very comfortable and of obvious high quality. The buying experience from Unwind could not have been better. Andrew in customer service was great, he answered all of my many questions and went out of his way to make sure the chair shipped quickly and I had it in only 3 days. This was a big expense for me for a chair, but the Governor is a great buy and worth every penny for the increased comfort I have gotten.

    Better than the Fjords chair I replaced

    Published by BTJ on 30th Aug 2014

    Had a fjords chair and was so-so happy with it until the seat mechanism broke. Ended up getting a Governor chair at a good price and sold my fjords in the classified ads. So far it seems that the quality of my Ekornes governor exceeds that of the fjords it replaced.

    Great chair at a super price

    Published by Josie Robertson on 13th Sep 2013

    Got a deal on this and we really love it. Apparently the manufacturer Ekornes still makes these models in limited supply just to offer them at a discount. I hope we can get 1 more before they are extinct forever!
