I won the stressless lottery

My mom had gotten a settlement that allows her to spend her final days in a nice retirement community. I had gone up to go see her and do some chores for her as I was helping her in her car so that she could go do some labs at the doctors office An elderly lady pointed out to some workers that were emptying an apartment why was she getting rid of such a nice coffee table. It was then when I looked up into the truck, that I noticed what I assumed was a knock off. It looked in really good condition, jammed up against some other stuff. I asked the young gentleman if he wouldn’t mind if he would let me have it and he said sure why not. As he’s handing it to me, he asked, do you want the ottoman that apparently comes with it? I said sure why not try not to let people know my excitement of what I may have possibly had found. Still not sure as all the tags had been cut off someone was gonna go to jail over this lol. I finally get it loaded into the Ford and finally see the stressless mark on the tightn knob. Getting it home and setting it up I don’t believe it was used 10 times and getting a stressless was going to be an end game down the road acquisition. To this day, it completely blows me away at what I have been able to build and have this come my way. It’s just some serious nice icing on top of that beautiful cake. What blessings are out there. Thank you so much for listening to me brag. And yes, I’m here to tell you that leather sounds so much better and I’ll argue with all the deniers out there have a wonderful listening day everyone!


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.

I have one of the early models in chrome and black leather. I tried a lot of chairs and this was by far the most comfortable and also the best looking. Great score!

I was lucky to be able to buy a matching pair about 10 years ago. They are the only two seats in my HiFi room.  You reminded me how nice they are. I've been taking owning them for granted. 

Does it get any better than two fingers of The Macallan 25, a Fuente Eye Of The Shark, and a Stressless to enjoy them in.......?  Except maybe a pound of coke and a 500-pound Thai hooker?

I think not.
