The Metro Recliner with High back and high base made its debut in the Summer of 2014. It quickly soared to a place of popularity amongst the famed Ekornes Recliners. The "buttoning" on the Back and Seat Cushions of this model lend itself to a vintage style. However, these are much more than cosmetic. They provide small indentions that allow your back and body to sink into the cushion. This means that rather than sitting on top of the cushion, your body will unwind and relax into the foam padding. The adjusting neck support pillow allows you to further customize your cervical support. Too much padding and support? No problem. Simply slide this pillow insert out for a flatter headrest. Worried about design? Fear not. Ekornes has thought ahead for you. The brushed-steel base keeps this ultra-comfortable model on the contemporary side of design.

Metro Recliner with high Back- Petrol.Choose the new Cori Petrol for your upholstery. This color provides a unique "cooler" temperature with its subtle hints at ocean depths. It retains a contemporary and fresh feel with the Mediterranean hues. This amazing option proves beauty is more than skin deep. The Cori leather provides enhanced shine and a thickness that provides increased levels of durability. Learn more about Cori Leather.
It's a perfect time of year to purchase from the new, polished steel, Stressless Metro lineup! This newly introduced chair and ottoman series insures proper head, neck and back support and includes many comfort features that add to the appeal of the new retro-styling.

Stressless Metro High-Back Recliner with High Base and Ottoman.  

Stressless Metro Recliner with high back

Talk about stylish. The Stressless Metro looks as great as it feels. When you sit down, prop-up your feet and experience true Norwegian comfort, no other recliner will do. It's easily overlooked that the Ekornes Metro Recliner brings home the same back and neck-saving features that all Stressless Recliners and sofas are famous for throughout the world! We invite you to grab a book, kick-up your feet and sit in the Ekornes Stressless Metro for a few moments- You'll be glad you did- we guarantee it! 

There are two new features that Ekornes has added into the Stressless Metro to not only make it stand apart from the pack but to help make you more comfortable.

1. The "High Base" will be the standard stocked base. The High Base version of the Metro is like having a built-in elevator ring. It raises the overall height of the chair so it is supe easy on your knees to get in and out of the seat. This is great news for you, the user, because having a built-in elevator ring means you save money on a Stressless Recliner by getting an elevator ring at no additional cost.

2. The new Stressless Metro Recliner comes with a detachable "Comfort Pillow". This little insert fits nicely into the headrest of your chair. It is like an additional cervical support for you at no added cost. If you so desire, you can remove the pillow use it in your lap or anywhere you can dream up!

Check out our blog post about the big debut! There is more detailed information about the Metro and City Recliners from Ekornes. If you would like to simply learn more about Ekornes, click here: [Everything you ever wanted to know...About Ekornes]

The 3 main colors this High-Back, High-Base Metro will be stocked in are: Black, Chili Red, & Mocca Paloma leathers. The Paloma option is our most popular leather choice. Learn more about the different leather grades and options here: [Ekornes Leather Info at Unwind]. Leather is more common than fabric selections. However, Ekornes provides 6 different ridiculously comfortable fabrics with 60+ colors to choose from if leather doesn't suit your tastes.

Fabric Choices offer a variety of colors from Ekornes

There are 12 different fabrics offered and 10 of them are lower priced than the leather choices available. Stella, Ocean, Luna, Verona, & Siena Fabrics are all the lowest priced upholstery options for Stressless Recliners and Ekornes Furniture. The Dinamica Fabric is equal in price to the Batick Leather option. It also the most exclusive and plush fabric choice. Ekornes even puts out a specific Fabric Care Kit to ensure you have all the tools to care for and enjoy your stress free furniture for years to come! Most of the fabric options require a special order to Ekornes in Norway which averages about 90 days for delivery. We might also have some fabric options in stock in our Floor Model and Clearance Listings. Click here: [Clearance Priced Stressless Recliners]

If you are near one of our stores, we invite you to come on in and take these chairs for a test drive. The "Comfort Test" designed by Ekornes is a set of questions printed on a little card that will assist you in determing which recliner, size, model, and upholstery suits your needs the best. Read below:

Main logo for Comfort Test

  • Does your whole body feel supported by the chair? If the chair is too small for you, you will notice your shoulders may not be properly support by the back cushion. Another sign the chair is too small is how far your head is above the headrest. Too high, and there is not enough support which defeats the purpose of a "Stress-Free Chair". If the chair is too large, you may notice there is too much space between your legs and the armrests. Also, if your head feels "pushed forward" this may indicate that the chair is too large for you.
  • Check the ottoman's position relative to your legs. Maybe you need to move the ottoman closer to the chair or further away so that your legs feel "lighter" and there is no pressure on your knees. You want to avoid any sort of pressure on the legs and the artery inside. Proper blood flow is crucial to the highest levels of comfort brought to you in Stressless Furniture.
  • If the chair is too large it may be difficult to seamlessly recline. The perfectly sized chair should recline effortlessly. Almost as if the chair is moving only in response to your body's repositioning. If the chair is too small, it may feel as if it moves too freely. We always encourage you to tighten or loosen the glide wheels at this time. If the movement of the chair is still not exactly as you want, the size chair may not be correct for your body.
  • Lumbar support is one of the greatest features of Stressless furniture. The versatile and adaptive lumbar support mechanism is intrinsic to truly comfortable seating. Do you feel adequate lumbar support as you sit, recline and lay back in this chair? If you do, you might have the correct size. If your chair is too big, the lumber support can be too high to properly support and ease your back tension. If your chair is too small the lumbar support will be too low and will not be very noticeable.
  • Can you see directly in front of you? If the headrest is too large for you, you may feel as if your head is being pushed forward. If it is too small, you may notice there is not enough head support to see the tv in front of you with ease. Stressless technologies are designed to provide adequate support in specifc sizes so that your head and neck never have to strain or struggle.
  • Finally, feel the leather. How does the texture feel to you? The Batick leather is more textured than Paloma and has a thicker layer of protecting lacquer. We like to say each person prefers a specific leather. Also, your environment should be considered when selecting a leather. Pets, children, food, sunlight are all important factors to consider when selecting your premium leather for your Stressless Recliner. Learn more about the leather grades here on our website: [Ekornes Leather Information] or read descriptions of the luxurious fabrics offered: [Fabrics for Stressless Furniture].

The Ekornes Stressless Metro recliner offers great comfort and support- especially to those who are of average size and weight (warranty is valid for weights up to 350 pounds). The High Back allows users who are taller than average to still receive the renowned neck support.

Here are a few of the features that make Stressless Metro Recliners so supportive and comfortable without compromising on beauty and 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. Prefer more or less reclining tension? No problem, simply grab the glide wheel knobs and give them a twist. Typically once these are set, there is no need for further adjustment in the future unless someone else is sitting in the recliner with different comfort preferences. If this happens often, you might want to consider getting your spouse their own Stressless recliner. After all, a comfortable couple is a happy couple.
  • The easily-moved ottoman also features a built-in Tilt System that adjusts to your body movements for the ultimate in comfort. You can't help but notice the extra thick layer of cushioning on the Stressless Metro recliner ottoman. The ottoman also doubles as a soft, separate stool by flipping it upside down and locking the 4 plastic clips. With this much padding on the ottoman, it really does a great job as an independent stool. 
  • Stressless Recliners and Accessories are built to last for many, many years. The unique, steel base insures stability and is extremely durable. 
  • Stressless Recliners are always created for a custom fit- Many Stressless recliners come in three sizes (small, medium or large) and many sofas are available in two sizes (medium or large). The Metro Recliner (medium) is comparable to the medium versions of the other Stressless recliner lines (Ekornes Stressless Jazz Medium, Stressless Mayfair, Stressless Blues Medium etc). Both the Ekornes Metro and City Recliners (medium) share the same attributes. For best results, take a seat and let us help you determine which recliner will ultimately offer the most comfort and correct support for your individual body size and weight. We are also able to assist you over the phone if you're too far away to visit.
