Ila armchair by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali

Dezeen Showroom: Italian furniture brand Pedrali has released a new version of its Ila armchair by French designer Patrick Jouin, adding the option of a four-leg base made of solid ash.

Pedrali introduced the Ila armchair last year as a comfortable and enveloping seat made of large volumes and flexible polyurethane that cocoons the sitter.

"The elegant, high-quality Ila armchair is a refined piece of furniture with a strong personality, expressing utmost comfort, softness and sensuality," said the brand.

Ila was initially made available with either a geometric swivel base and four-leg steel tube frame options. Pedrali has now added the option of a base made of solid ash.

There is also a version with a headrest that partially muffles sound

Ila comes in a range of colours and finishes, and for those who want an added sense of escape from the world, there is a version with a large headrest that creates a private niche and partly muffles sound.

The chair is designed to be disassembled, so it is possible to change the upholstery during its lifecycle.
