Most people know that Ekornes is a Norwegian company. What you may not know, is Ekornes began in the mattress industry. The journey starts in 1934 with founder J.E. Ekornes. At that time, Ekornes was manufacturing springs for furniture companies in the area, and soon after, all throughout Norway. In 1947, Ekornes made a huge leap into the production of wooden furniture frames and parts for day beds and sofa beds. And soon after, they began production of their own mattresses. Their foamed plastics changed the mattress industry. By the time 1966 came around, Ekornes was releasing it’s newest and first collection of lounge furniture. This made Ekornes the first furniture manufacturer in Norway! Ekornes quickly became a household name in their country and in 1971 the Stressless Recliner was introduced. At the time, no one at Ekornes knew that the introduction of this early model Stressless chair would soon become the bulk of their business. Just 5 years after, The Stressless Brand alone hit the 100 million Norwegian Krone mark! In 1994, Ekornes celebrated it’s 60th anniversary and by 1996 the Stressless Chair had been on the market for 25 years. In March of 2001, Ekornes opened it’s famous showroom “Ekornes Bua” in Alesund, Norway and between 2002 and 2007, showrooms were opening up all over the world: Sao Paulo, Paris, Las Vegas, Berlin, and several more cities in Europe, Asia and The United States. They are still in production today.
