Maybe if you hung out a little longer, the matching footrest would have been tossed also.
Great story.You saved it from going to a secondhand store and sold for $20 probably. I am sure this happens all the time as folks pass away and the family does not want the furniture left behind and the home needs to clear out the furniture for the next guest..! When my dad passed away we told the home that they could keep what we had moved there from his house.
Post a picture or link to a picture and I can tell you the model and price. If there is a tag with a model number still on the bottom that would be better. Stressless has a min retail price no dealer is allowed to go below.
Look in the zippered part of the ottoman underneath for a manual and some leather treatment. The first owner may have removed it.
@notnow0329 Thanks for the offer to help, I have been able to determine that it is a Peace model with the signature base. I believe it is the Paloma blue leather. It took me like two hours on Google to find it because it’s not on the current stressless website. Found it on vitality web.com.
Do keep up with the cleaner and conditioner. Even their bottom grade leather is very good but all hide needs to be fed. Armrests and the front edge get the most abuse because human skin oils are very acidic.
I paid full price for mine and don;t regret a single day.
Sometimes things work out. Congrat's.
@tvrgeek I ordered some stuff from Amazon will definitely keep this up like I had a whole bunch of maids whose specific task is taking care of leather furniture. Ordered a product called hidebracer leather cleaner and conditioner, if anyone out there has another suggestion, I would gladly hear their thoughts on that. I would’ve happily paid full price for this chair! This is an amazing piece of engineering!
Well, I have a pair of Stressless recliners with footrests. Unfortunately, I got these only after my folks passed. My mother's is a bit smaller than my father's. I actually prefer it over the larger one, since the back doesn't rise over my ears...this is much better for listening.
Thanks for the reminder to properly care for the leather. It hadn't occurred to me.
Wow, I just spent $67 on this white elephant. Getting beeswax, Flitz metal polish, and Hidebracer leather conditioner. Plus a T-30 torx wrench to take apart for maintenance. Definitely going to upkeep it as this is a beautiful 🤩 thing. What got me onto the metal polish thing was there was a scratch on the bottom of the finger rest area, from the movers shoving it into the truck. Borrowed some Flitz from my neighbor and that worked so well that I realized I needed to do the whole chair 🪑. So later this week when Amazon shows up, baby’s going to have a spa party 🎊. Thanks for the kind words from all of you. I enjoy this space, one of my daily refuge.
