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.

Flexible expanded polyurethanes Orsa foam: over 200 different types of products

Orsa foam is a leading company in the field of flexible polyurethane foam able to offer over 200 different types of products in lift, density, in block and roll configurations and in an infinite range of colours, which meet the most diverse applications and needs.


Technological Laboratory: fundamental fulcrum of Orsa foam

In the Technological Laboratory of Orsa foam we carry out research and experimentation in order to study products able to guarantee maximum safety, reliability and the highest quality level. New formulations are developed, the physical-mechanical characteristics and fire behaviour of all the materials produced are verified to meet the requirements of national and international standards and tests on materials are organised using methods agreed directly with customers.
It is precisely in the Technological Laboratory that all the important ideas for the entire application market of flexible expanded polyurethanes were born. This is the case of the Viscoelastici family, or of the I-Foam project, the “intelligent polyurethane“, or of Waterlily, Breeze and Gaia, types mainly addressed to the bedding and upholstery sector for sofas and furniture that perfectly meet the demands of comfort and well-being.


Some particularly performing typologies of Orsa foam

Let's see the main features of some of these types of flexible expanded polyurethanes proposed by Orsa foam that have already had excellent feedback from manufacturers in the upholstered and bedding sector.

i-fo@m®, the intelligent polyurethane

With i-fo@m®, polyurethane foam becomes intelligent; through microencapsulation particular substances or active ingredients can be introduced. The world of polyurethane can thus count on a new technology capable of offering the ideal comfort and protection in any situation of daily life, from moments of rest and relaxation to leisure time, from work to sport. Orsa foam offers two solutions: i-fo@m Thermo, polyurethane foam able to thermoregulate the areas in contact with the body creating an ideal microclimate, and i-fo@m Silver, a polyurethane foam that exploits the bactericidal action of silver.

Waterlily™ and Waterlily Viscoelastic™ high elasticity for comfortable padding.

Waterlily™, whose production and brand Orsa foam is the exclusive licensee for Italy, is a technologically advanced polyurethane, designed to offer the highest performance in the bedding and furniture sectors. Its high elasticity makes Waterlily an extremely comfortable padding material. Not only that, Waterlily represents the most advanced development in the field of environmental respect: it has been designed to be recycled both mechanically and chemically and, since it does not contain polluting substances, it is not harmful to the environment. In addition to Waterlily there is Waterlily viscoelastic™ which reduces pressure points to a minimum and distributes the weight of the body over the entire surface taking the shape of the person lying down.


Gaia®, nature and technology

Equally attentive to the environment is Gaia®, a sure point of reference in the mattress market. A name with ancient origins and illustrious paternity, the one that the English scholar James Lovelock chose towards the end of the '60s to define his interpretation of the Earth as a living, breathing and evolving system: Gaia, the goddess of the Earth in Greek mythology. Gaia® is a foam made with the use of water and raw materials derived from renewable sources. It is an innovative product, the only one that combines breathability, comfort, durability and elasticity with soy-based raw materials.

Breeze, exceptional breathability

Recognized and appreciated for its exceptional quality of breathability, Breeze polyurethane foam, thanks to its open cellular conformation, guarantees the free passage of air and the fast dispersion of moisture and heat giving the maximum feeling of well-being and the most complete rest.
The Research & Development Laboratory of Orsa foam has recently added to the Viscoelastic 40 and 50 kg/m³ and to the HR 32 and 50 kg/m³, already present in the Breeze family, three new hyper-soft products, hence their name HS or High Softness. Three new densities designed for the world of rest and relaxation.
