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: the fair will be totally digital thanks to the interzum@home platform

The news was in the air and comes as no surprise: interzum 2021 will finally be a fully online trade fair.
After searching for a long time for the possibility of organising a hybrid event, Koelnmesse had to give up, deciding that interzum will take place from 4 to 7 May 2021 as a purely digital event due to the continuing health emergency.
“What our exhibitors need now is secure planning. That is why, in close cooperation with the industry, we decided to opt for a fully digital edition. We deliberately planned interzum in hybrid form precisely so that we could switch over to digital at any time,“ said Oliver Frese, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse, about this decision.


The interzum@home digital platform

The digital solution interzum@home offers suppliers from the furniture industry and interior design a very valuable platform for presenting all their innovations.
“In these difficult times, interzum@home provides us with an optimal way to bridge the gap to interzum 2023. This is very positive on the part of the industry. The digital platform allows us to present our products and innovations to a wide audience and thus reach a large number of people, although it certainly cannot replace a physical trade fair,“ emphasised Andreas Hettich, chairman of the interzum advisory board. With Hettich, Blum, Häfele and Vauth-Sagel, the first market leaders have already announced that they will present their innovations online at interzum@home.
“In future, digital reach will be considered a new and additional success criterion for all our trade fairs,“ said interzum director Maik Fischer. Indeed, interzum digital could prove to be an interesting test bench for trade fairs and our entire industry.


Information for digital participation

In the coming weeks the trade fair team will be conducting webinars with live demonstrations to present the functionality and possibilities provided by the digital platform. In addition, a lot of information on the different aspects of interzum@home is available on the interzum website. The interzum team is committed to providing the best possible support and assisting all companies attending interzum@home in implementing an optimal presentation.
