If that horrifically ugly modernist La-Z-Boy chair is still burned into your brain, have a look at the Stressless Sam and Scott chairs instead. Designed by Norwegian industrial design firm Permafrost, the Sam and Scott combines clean Scandinavian looks with motorized reclining, heating and massaging functions. Two different base styles, which both swivel, are offered.

There are actually two versions. The more refined Sam version has winged armrests and a tapered back…
…whereas the Scott has more of a bare bones look.
I couldn’t find any U.S. distributor for these nor list price, but comparable chairs in the Stressless line-up are in the $3,000 range.
