Hardware for furniture, upholstery, kitchen, coatings and furnishing systems.

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.

"Cosentino We",  the new global community for professionals in the sector

The Cosentino Group, the Spanish multinational leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the world of architecture and design, launches the platform “Cosentino We“, a new global community for professionals in the field. This digital platform has been designed to bring together all those professionals who choose to use Dekton®, Silestone® and Sensa by Cosentino® surfaces for their work.
In response to the growing use of “digital transformation“ by architects and designers, Cosentino has developed a new digital ecosystem by modifying and updating traditional collaboration and communication tools.


Cosentino We: interesting opportunities for professionals in the sector


Cosentino We offers new and interesting opportunities to all professionals in the field: marble workers, furniture makers, architects and designers who want to grow their business. Thanks to the Cosentino We platform you can have better access to information, the possibility of experimenting with products thanks to new digital tools, a more transparent relationship with customers, better visibility for projects and the opportunity to establish a fruitful dialogue with professionals of different nationalities and languages. You can access exclusive services that will allow you to receive Cosentino materials for the exhibition and other effective services to show your products to your customers. Architects, designers, retailers and marble workers will also be able to take advantage of annual campaigns, incentive plans, promotions and exclusive offers.
There are four different levels of Cosentino We collaboration established on the basis of experience: “Pro“, “Elite“, “Premium“ and “Platinum“, each of which offers targeted tools for each professional segment, ensuring all the speed of digital. Pro is accessible to all professionals; to access the Elite level, simply collaborate with the Cosentino Group, participating in specific projects or guaranteeing the presence of the brand or a minimum purchase volume. The Premium level is aimed at shops and marble manufacturers who will give priority to the Cosentino brands for their projects and structures and finally the Platinum level, the highest, is reserved, for the moment, to marble manufacturers who will have the highest volume of purchases.
The result of two years of research, Cosentino We is part of the objectives of the Spanish company to guide the process of digitization of the sector and further retain customers and partners. Initially launched in Dubai, Brazil, Sweden and Singapore, in 2019 the digital platform will be implemented in 20 countries and then further extended to various markets in 2020.
