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. The magazines can be consulted from the portal or easily downloadable in pdf format.


Thanks to the trust placed in us by many manufacturers, our portal is now recognized both nationally and internationally. In fact, there are already many internationally recognized and established companies in the sector, including the AIPEF group (Italian Flexible Expanded Polyurethanes Companies) which promotes scientific information on the use of flexible polyurethane foam in the sectors in which it is used.

Architect Giulio De Carli joins the Board of Directors of ICA Group

ICA Group, a company specializing in the production of innovative, eco-sustainable coatings for wood, announces that architect Giulio De Carli has joined the Board of Directors as an Independent Director.
De Carli, Managing Partner of the One Works architectural practice, one of the leading Italian architectural practices operating on an international level, was chosen by ICA Group primarily to boost its oversight of all the stages of its clients' projects, from concept design to executive planning, from product industrialization through to industrial production.
“In this important phase of growth, which has seen us conquer new international markets and reinforce our position in Italy as well, - comments Sandro Paniccia, CEO of ICA Group - we have identified in architect De Carli the skills required to accompany us in the execution of our strategy of strengthening dialogue with end clients, in order to express and bring the value of our product right from the design phase of the project, in the conviction that the culture and knowledge of innovation and technology that we are constantly investing in should be shared for the benefit of the entire system“.


Innovation and environmental sustainability are at the heart of the project

Innovation and environmental sustainability are the fundamental themes on which the vision of both ICA Group and architect De Carli is focused. Indeed, the Paniccia family-owned company has always developed high-quality formulations that are capable of responding to the need to protect the environment and people's health. For his part, Giulio De Carli, in over 30 years of experience, has developed a particular sensitivity and awareness of the added value that research and the excellence of detailed solutions bring to a project, offering opportunities for differentiation right from the conceptual phase. Proof of this is the design of One Works headquarters in Milan, conceived as a hub to give space for comparison and creative dialogue between clients, professionals and users.
In addition to Giulio De Carli joining ICA Group's Board of Directors, new directors were appointed: Andrea Paniccia, general manager, and Lorenzo Paniccia, R&D technical manager.
The enlargement of the Board of Directors is part of an overall project, which aims to build a governance of ICA Group that is effective in terms of future business opportunities, in an increasingly dynamic and articulated context.
