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.

Hettich Group: Positive results in 2020 with turnover of EUR 1.1 billion

The Hettich Group, one of the world's largest manufacturers of furniture fittings, successfully closed 2020, a difficult year marked by the pandemic and global economic uncertainties. It achieved a turnover of EUR 1.1 billion, which was close to the figure recorded for 2019, while its export share reached 70%. The figures were also influenced by the rapid recovery of the Chinese economy from the pandemic.
Sascha Groß, managing director of Hettich Holding, explained how, despite shortened working hours, lockdowns in many countries and delayed effects in supply chains, the company always guaranteed its customers the delivery service they were used to. “The enormous commitment of the Hettich team internationally,“ added Jana Schönfeld, member of the Executive Board of Hettich Holding, “has enabled us to successfully counteract the uncertain business climate, an achievement that makes us all proud and for which we can only be grateful.


The increasingly important role of the home and home office

The new trends that emerged especially in the second half of 2020, relating to stylish living, the focus on the home office, the rediscovery of the kitchen and the general mixing of home and work spaces, ensured that Hettich recovered strongly in the second half of the year. The changes brought about by the Covid emergency have accelerated the implementation of international megatrends: Urbanisation, with the need to organise confined spaces, Personalisation and the important “New Work“ theme of the home office. These trends, which are now part of today's living and working scenarios, are set to become ever more relevant, requiring the reinvention and complete redefinition of the function of interior spaces and furnishings. Hettich designs respond to these new requirements and also offer unconventional solutions.


Investments for the future

In 2020, the Hettich Group invested EUR 72 million globally in new products, capacity expansion and infrastructure enhancement. One example of this is the expansion of production areas in Germany, the Czech Republic and China.


Rewarding the commitment of the Hettich team

Today, more than 6,600 people work for Hettich worldwide, over 3,500 in Germany alone. At the end of 2020, every Hettich colleague received an award in appreciation and recognition of their enormous efforts during a difficult year.
All hygiene and spacing regulations were adhered to and office work was done as agile as possible, up to 40 per cent during the first lockdown and up to 60 per cent today. Contacts with customers have also been almost entirely digital.


Sustainable economy

Combining economic growth with ecological and social responsibility is the long-term goal of the Hettich family business' strategy. For the Hettich Group, sustainability not only means environmental management but also investing in safe, environmentally friendly and resource-saving technologies and processes in production, logistics and infrastructure. Designing sustainable product solutions with stringent requirements in terms of quality and safety, environmental compatibility and energy efficiency also contributes to environmental protection. These and other topics are being addressed at the HettichXperiencedays, Hettich's hybrid event, which was launched in March and will continue online and offline around the world for several weeks. To access the full range of HettichXperiencedays, you must register as a trade visitor on the web portal xdays.hettich.com.
