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.

Giardina Group is born

Giampiero Mauri, former owner of Mauri Macchine and Ventilazione Italiana, is the new owner of Giardina Finishing. The new organization Giardina Group also includes MM Store, the e-commerce portal recently launched for the online sale of spare parts and equipment for coating machines and lines. “It’s the end of a natural process: when I decided, as Mauri Macchine, to buy Officine Aeromeccaniche Giardina, a brand that was too important to be abandoned, in my mind I knew that one day we could establish a real group with a strong leadership. Today, what was just a dream a few months ago, has become a reality!”
The mission is clear: create a strong business on the Italian and international markets, with a business approach based on a governance with clear goals, “…with clear ideas and a well-defined project you can still do great things in a mature business like finishing and coating, creating an organization that reaffirms its determination to join the small community of world-class leaders, with a turnover that will exceed 16 million euro this year and the target of 20 million in 2018”, Mauri commented.
At Ligna, in Hannover from 22 to 26 May, (hall 16, both A12), the new group will be showing up in a 400-square-meter stand: new name, new shareholders, new logo to be progressively extended to the entire portfolio, new image clean, solid, simple and strong.
“Our equipment is built to last and to increase the value of the items it produces: this is our business. The selection of plain black-and-white colors with the additional stroke of the Italian flag colors represents our strength, the clarity of our goals, the solidity of our group in all areas: technology, design, manufacturing, finance, understanding and responding to the requirements of customers all over the world”, Mauri said, adding: “I am sure that our stand in Hannover will show the direction we are going to take…”.
By merging the three brands, Giardina Group can immediately tap into a huge customer base and offer a comprehensive catalog, probably the widest and most exhaustive range of finishing machines and plants available in the market: from “standard” stand alone machines to sophisticated flexible lines, from windows to furniture, from big plants to paint beams to special machines for 15-mm-thick and up to 3,250-mm-large crystal plates.
Wood and glass are the two core businesses the group has committed to. Besides the historical focus on wood, Giardina Group has developed specific expertise for glass, from cleaning to etching up to coating: all sorts of preliminary or finishing treatments for a catalog that has drawn the attention of a few global industry leaders.
There are many ambitious projects, first of all the unification of production into the Figino Serenza site, Giardina’s historical factory, while the Mauri Macchine premises in Cermenate will be dedicated to warehouses and logistics. By the end of the year, the new headquarters will be completely renovated to meet the needs of a modern company, including the reorganization of production areas and offices, the creation of a showroom/laboratory, training areas and a dedicated design and innovation department, as well as all the necessary spaces for a company that is determined to grow.
