Furnishing Idea is the portal dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, designed to bring together different professionals such as architects, designers, carpenters, furniture makers and manufacturers active in the furniture market who represent the reference point in terms of innovation and quality of the product offered. On the other hand, the portal aims to provide a valid information service focused on products, projects, events and fairs and everything that revolves around the world of components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry.


The portal is divided into different sections where you can explore the different products according to different categories, get in touch with manufacturers, download catalogues to keep up with industry trends and watch videos of interviews with the best professionals and manufacturers.


In the articles section you can find all the information about the most innovative product technologies, such as furniture materials, furniture accessories and systems, furniture machinery, furniture hardware, manufactured by manufacturers with a solid experience in the field. In the companies section there is an overview of the manufacturers registered on our portal, divided by product category, where you can contact us for any request. Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.


In addition, to keep you constantly informed you can also consult our Journal section which contains all the Furnishing Idea magazines dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, such as the edition dedicated to Sicam or Interzum, two of the most important trade fairs in the sector.

Abet Laminati: the new collection of decors and finishes and a postformable laminate layered laminate

In a hyper-coloured stand created by Paola Navone, historical art director of the company, Abet Laminati presented at Sicam 2019 the new 2019>2021 Collection that offers unusual textures and innovative finishes. Through the setting up of small sets, Paola Navone imagined, with her usual creative refinement, a fantastic journey through decades and continents.


The new 2019/2021 Collection by Abet Laminati

New colours, new textures, new collaborations: these are the elements that characterize the 2019>2021 Collection that Abet Laminati proposes to architects and designers to simplify the reading of its wide range of products.
The collection presents three new lines that go alongside some already known and appreciated such as Colours, Legni and Rocks. Result of the continuous research on materials and surfaces that has always distinguished Abet Laminati, the new lines are Fabriek, the laminate inspired by the consistency of the fabrics, Metal Effect, the collection that proposes decorations with an iridescent and/or metallic effect and finally Febo, the first collection signed by Ugo Nespolo. This collection proposes 10 decors with bright colors and rich in irony that enhance the technology of digital printing.


SlidingCore, the postformable laminate laminate layer

Another important novelty presented by Abet Laminati in Pordenone is SlidingCore, a postformable layered laminate that is obtained thanks to a production technology able to combine pressing and heat. This technology allows the curvature of Abet Laminati's HPL layered panels.
SlidingCore was created to meet both aesthetic and functional requirements; it is a versatile, compact and durable product, a panel that makes it possible to create projects that also include curved elements.
It is suitable for the construction of bathroom tops, internal frames for French windows, benches and columns. Resistant to impact, wear and solvents, it guarantees sturdiness and hygiene.
SlidingCore is available both flat - in the standard version - and with L or S curvature, in two different sizes. SlidingCore can also be customized: the company can in fact create ad hoc moulds that expand its offer and application uses.
SlidingCore panels can be produced with a double decorative Soft Finish or Six (the historical Abet Laminate finish, matt and pleasant to the touch) and with the interior in Black (BK) or Brown (Standard). Most of the Abet Laminati decors and the entire Polaris collection can be produced with SlidingCore technology.
