Nouhaus N-0003 Massage Chair Review [Updated 2020]

Nouhaus is a company that started as a romance. Leo and his wife Violette wanted to start a project that resonated with beauty and passion. They call themselves the “Architects of Meaningful Seating.” You have to admit, that is quite a romantic title.

If you thought that was dramatic, wait until you hear this: they’ve been featured on GQ and Forbes magazine!

For every product they create, they have a team that consists of a posturologist, engineer, creative designer, and an architect (sometimes more members but the very least these roles).

Focused on ergonomics and mid-century design, Nouhaus massage chair is extremely popular and their products are constantly running out of stock due to high demand. It’s great for those who prioritize the aesthetics and comfort over features and would rather buy a compact chair as opposed to the standard bulky space-ship-looking chairs!

Features and Benefits

The first impression I got from this chair is elegance.

Do you remember the last time you opened an Apple product? Well, it’s a similar experience. Very simple, minimalistic, but beautiful.

The design cater itself to limited functionality but its aesthetics and quality outweigh cheap features that are common among even the most experience massage chairs. It’s a pod-like shaped chair with no foot massager and no reclining capabilities. This is what I would picture what a one-man spacecraft would look like!

I also like the rose gold finish on some parts of the chair like the legs, speakings, and parts of the head pillow. It really makes those colors pop.

In terms of size, the width of the chair is less than 25 inches, so rest assured this will fit through any door. It’s very compact so many urban areas (shoutout to my fellow Chicagoans!) will find this convenient.

The rollers work off an L-track system, which means it will massage your body from shoulder to butt. The rollers move at a rate of 42 kneads / minute. It targets four parts of your body: head, back, waist, and thigh.

Because the chair is simplistic and compact in nature, the trade-off is that there aren’t many places to put air bags. There is a total of 4 (pair of double) air bags located in the hips and glutes. The air compression massage isn’t anything crazy but it does feel soothing and relaxing.

It’s also important to note that this chair does not recline much less have the zero gravity feature. Instead, it offers a 45 degree swivel feature. The swivel is smooth although having a 360 degree would be a lot better.

The two bluetooth speakers are conveniently located on the side of the head pillow. Many massage chair seem to skimp out on the quality of the speakers but these are high quality, where the sound comes out crisp.

The removable pillow is especially nice for those who want their head propped up and have the option of wanting a stronger massage. It’s pretty dense and resembles a small semi-circle bolster.

One thing I don’t like is how low it sits on the ground. If you’re a tall person, you might not like this design.

Conclusion

This massage chair is for those who want to complement their decor and want to have moderate massage features. A team of professional poured their hearts in building this chair so you know it’s not some cheap chair made purely for profits.

  1. Thank you for your review I just ordered the mustard yellow one the smaller cheaper version with the Ottoman. We are buying a new condo and this will look great I have had an Ijoy 100 massage chair for 15 years that I bought off the Brookstone floor for half price because they had been a demonstration model it is still a workhorse but the leather has all worn off and I have a blanket on top of it I can only imagine that this chair will be just as much of a workhorse. I’ve been reviewing massage chairs for several days now and decided on this one for its classic mid mod style to blend in with our antiques in our 1970s concrete and ibeam Fourth floor condo with a west facing lanai! I’ll send a pic once we are moved in.
