Stressless E40

  • The ErgoAdapt™ system tilts the seat for the perfect sitting position
  • 10-year warranty on the internal mechanism
  • Designed and made in Norway
The Stressless E40 is the latest sofa from Stressless featuring the ErgoAdapt system.  Created by Stressless, ErgoAdapt allows the cushion of the sofa to tilt down automatically the moment you take a seat placing your body in the perfect sitting position.  The brilliance of ErgoAdapt is that if you prefer to lie down on your sofa, the cushion automatically elevates to a flat position, placing your body in the perfect lying position. The simple lines and classic proportions make the E40 the choice of those who want the very best of contemporary Scandinavian design made to last.

Stressless chairs are built to last, and that's why we guarantee the internal mechanism for 10 years. We cover our chairs with genuine top-grain leather or top-quality fabric for a luxurious look and feel.
