I have the Stressless Magic recliner and wanted to share my thoughts.
This is subjective, but the moment I saw this in the Ekornes catalog, I knew I had to have it. Very contemporary and stylish IMO. Goes really well in my loft with concrete floors.
Comfort & Support:
They weren't kidding when Ekornes says this is the most comfortable Stressless recliner they've ever made. I have a couple of their other recliners already (Taurus and Spirit), but this one is hands down the most comfortable. This has way more padding than the Taurus line, and is more supportive than the Spirit line. The Spirit has extra padding as well, but the back pad on the Spirit is pretty flat. The Magic's back pad as you can see is split in half at an angle that makes your back just sink in while providing great support. Same thing with the bottom cushion. Compared to Spirit, I feel greater lower back and lumber support on the Magic in all positions. Compared to Taurus, it's actually kind of laughable.
Magic makes you feel like you're literally floating on the recliner, and I've fallen asleep on it many times without issues.
This is one overlooked factor when considering Stressless recliners, but one I feel is very important. These recliners aren't cheap, so you want these to last. The Magic has removable cushions on the headrest, backrest, bottom, and ottoman, attached via zipper and velcro. Not only does this make cleaning/conditioning the seating surfaces simpler, this is huge when you think about reupholstery down the road! (Hopefully that's not for many years)
The additional cushions on the Spirit are sewn into the base, so it will be much more expensive and labor intensive to reupholster.
The latest Voyager line also has removable cushions.
Not many recliners out there have optional accessories available for it. I have both the Personal PC Table and the Swing Table attached to the Magic and it's like I never want to stand up again. My home office with my nice 27" Apple display sits unused because I now use my computer in my living room on the Magic.
As for the other models I cross-shopped, I've also sat extensively in the Voyager, Blues and Jazz. Voyager and Blues don't have the adjustable headrest so they were nixed, and the Jazz is just an Orion/Taurus with a metal pipe frame and an oversized headrest. Having a Taurus already, I know it won't have enough padding to be comfortable to sit on long-term. Up until purchasing the Magic, the Spirit was my go-to chair due to comfort, but the Spirit line doesn't allow you to use the PC Table and Swing Table with it due to the armrest design.
If you're considering an Ekornes recliner, look no further...the Magic is a beast full of style, comfort, support, and thoughtful features.
