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.

interzum 2021: a hybrid fair with extremely flexible participation options 

Four months on, the organisers confirm that interzum 2021, the world trade fair for furniture components, will be held in Cologne from 4 to 7 May.  This is in response to the need to reconcile the great desire for trade fairs expressed by the sector of semi-finished products and supplies for the furniture industry with the global health emergency.


Interzum 2021: different options for participation

Koelnmesse is currently presenting the new proposal for interzum 2021 to exhibitors from all over the world: the “hybrid“ trade fair concept has been confirmed, with extremely flexible participation options to allow the choice between being physically present in Cologne or “digitally“ present. The project has been further perfected: in fact, in addition to being at the fair with your own stand and on the digital platform interzum@home, available free of charge for those who will be in Cologne, from today you can also choose to exhibit only “digitally“ for those who prefer not to be present at the exhibition centre with their own stand.
And that's not all: what's new these days is the third option that Koelnmesse has planned: exhibiting in Cologne in the new “interzum@home hall“, a pre-furnished area where it will be possible to present oneself in stands of different sizes, from 30 to 120 square metres. This means you can be at the trade fair and also have Koelnmesse's digital platform at your disposal, while keeping your investment costs down considerably.  This new project will make it easier for all companies to plan their participation in the exhibition in an “agile“ way and take advantage of the great opportunities that interzum has always offered.


A great effort for a safe, effective, new and innovative exhibition

“It is certainly not easy to face the challenge of organising a trade fair next May, despite the climate of uncertainty and concern,“ said Thomas Rosolia, Managing Director of Koelnmesse Italia, commenting on the new opportunities offered to exhibitors. “One thing is certain,“ he added: “The furniture world wants a moment of encounter that allows it to focus on what is new, what is functional, what is beautiful that will characterise the furnishings of the near future. We cannot read the crystal ball, we cannot be certain of what awaits us, but we can and must use our expertise and experience to try to design a show that is safe, effective, and above all new and innovative“.
