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.

Häfele: new major investment project for the Nagold headquarters
Häfele Germania is investing in the company's future. After the warehouse expansion at the Wolfsberg distribution center, which will be inaugurated this spring, the company has put a major investment project in the works for its headquarters in Nagold, in the heart of the Black Forest.

Häfele Dynamics Centre

It is a new complex of high-tech buildings that will reinterpret, in a contemporary and sustainable way, the style of the Black Forest, while creating new logistical and production possibilities for the group. The Häfele Dynamics Centre, the name of the new complex, will become not only a place of inspiration and exchange for customers and business partners, but also an example of innovation at the service of the community. In fact, the expansion project will help create new jobs and will also open the doors of its facilities to employees of neighboring companies.

"With this project we are investing in the future of our company and, in particular, in our location here in the Black Forest," says Sibylle Thierer, CEO of the group. "We have set the bar very high, we want to live up to our role as a pioneer in the industry, constantly refining our technology and logistical excellence to give new impetus to our industry."


A project with sustainability in mind

The entire project is based on sustainability. The recyclability of the materials used will play a decisive role right from the early planning stages: each resource will be assessed and selected on the basis of its recycling capacity. If, for technical reasons, it is necessary, for example, to design load-bearing structures made of reinforced concrete, Häfele will immediately identify all indirect measures to be taken to offset the carbon footprint thus generated.

A firewater cistern will be used as a regenerative source for heating and cooling. This cistern, located underneath the complex, will allow for the storage of energy that is not continuously available or required. Rainwater is therefore also an essential component in the strategy of offsetting the CO² footprint that will inevitably be determined by materials and construction methods.

The Häfele Dynamics Centre will also be designed to accommodate large green areas of selected plants above its roofs, which will further contribute to sustainable emissions offsetting. Construction of the new complex will begin in late 2022 and last five years.
