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 in digital format: a different and effective way to create business

Today sees the start of interzum @home, the first online edition of interzum, the major trade fair for furniture components, supplies and semi-finished products that this year will be held exclusively online, due to the continuing restrictions caused by the health emergency.
“It will be a strong experience, which I'm convinced will totally involve both exhibitors and visitors“, commented the CEO of Koelnmesse Italia, Thomas Rosolia. “A different way to meet, to show trends and products, an engaging demonstration of how much value digital can add to the traditional exhibition, which and how many possibilities can enrich the next editions of our fairs“. “Obviously, we would all have preferred to meet on the banks of the Rhine,“ continued Rosolia, “but we will surprise many with what we will be showing between now and 7 May, different but still effective ways of illustrating inspirations, trends, ideas, novelties and creating business!


Great expectations for the novelties presented online

There is great anticipation and curiosity on everyone's part to see what this completely new event will be like, starting with the Italian companies that have accepted to take part in this challenge, including 3B, Altaflex, Ambos, Aper, Arpa Industriale, Brighi Tecnologie Italia, Dolphinpack, Elletipi, Fratelli Rossetto, Lacon Fantoni Group, Fema Industry, Formenti & Giovenzana, G Technologies, Lemi, Servetto, Tabu and Topstar. Alongside them are many companies from other countries, such as Hettich, Häfele, Blum, Vauth-Sagel, Grass, Kesseböhmer, Schüco Alu Competence, Titus, Samet, Rehau, Hawa Sliding Solutions, Hailo, Agoform, Sugatsune, Mesan, Elektra, Halemeier, Schattdecor, Impress, Surteco, Continental, Unilin, Sonae Arauco, Senosan, Europlac, Leggett & Platt International Bedding, Global Systems Group, Spühl, Masias, Fecken-Kirfel, Vita Group or Boyteks...
For some exhibition segments such as “Function & Components“, hardware, or “Materials & Nature“, decors and surfaces, this digital experience is undoubtedly easier, but in general terms the organisers are satisfied with the number of registrations received, knowing that this is a gamble that not all interzum exhibitors are ready and prepared to take from the 2021 edition.


Numerous side initiatives

The digital format nevertheless retains a whole series of side initiatives that have always framed the important event in Cologne.
Katrin de Louw (Trendfilter) curates the “interzum Trend Stage“, the platform where all the trends that will characterise the near future are shown: the digital stage of interzum @home promotes materials, colours, surfaces. Innovative and ecological products are in the spotlight at the “Green Smart Materials“ event, while the theme of the circular economy is developed at the “Mattress Recycling“ stage.
There will also be many meetings, events and master classes dedicated to the theme of materials and sustainability at “materials-cologne“. In collaboration with interzum @home, the event's founder Martin Beeh organises specialist lectures by international experts on topics relating to materials and various master classes to reach an audience consisting mainly of designers, architects, interior designers and professionals from innovative companies.
Last but not least, the eleventh edition of the prestigious “Interzum award intelligent material & design 2021“, organised in collaboration with Red Dot, will award the best products in the “Function & Components“, “Materials & Nature“ and “Textile & Machinery“ categories today, 4 May. The interzum awards ceremony is also being held digitally.
