Furniture World News on

Ekornes announced that retailer Mill River Furniture recently celebrated the grand opening of an 850-sq.-ft. Ekornes Stressless® Comfort Zone in its Vermont location here at 166 Railroad St. Held on April 23, 2008, the grand opening of the new Ekornes furniture gallery included a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Governor Douglas. Introduced by Ekornes Inc. in 1971, Stressless® was the first collection of recliners designed to meet the body’s need for movement and support when seated. Today, Stressless® offers a full line of recliners, sofas, loveseats and home theater seating endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) for proper head and lumbar support which can help reduce back and neck pain. The new Stressless® Comfort Zone at Mill River Furniture features a demo chair and C-80 technical module that explains the chair’s interior construction, an informational video, and a leather and wood sample module to show the full range of options available for Stressless® seating.
