The beautiful Stressless® showroom in Norway has been updated!

The process of planning a makeover for our expansive Norwegian showroom is always exciting. The showroom located in picturesque Alesund in Norway was opened in 2001 and is steeped in history. 


Located on the side of the fjord the Stressless ‘Bua’ derives its name from ‘Fiskebu’ and the fact that it was originally a warehouse for sorting the catch of the day bought in by local fishermen. We have kept the integrity of the building and guests enjoy the beautiful exposed brick and wooden beams that make a statement backdrop for the sleek look of
Stressless® furniture and experience the unique comfort for themselves.


The current exhibition includes Stressless® models from the new Lounge series alongside every chair, sofa and accessory model that we currently produce.


The extensive planning preparations to updated the showroom began in January. With assistance from our helpful Ekornes employees, the carpet and wall paint were replaced in March.


Pink, Grey and Yellow formed the colour palette on the first floor and to harmonize the furniture with the showroom space, the same colours were used on the walls. Gradients of grey, blue and hints of copper were arranged on the second floor.


We hope you enjoy the pictures and beautiful furniture!
