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 forum italy: the new trade fair for the subcontracting sector

interzum forum italy is the new exhibition event organised by Koelnmesse that will take place on 6 and 7 June 2024 at the Fair di Bergamo and will be held every two years. 

Bergamo has been chosen as the ideal location because of its central position with respect to the main furniture and design industry districts, easily reachable from all over Italy and abroad, thanks to a dense network of connections and in particular its proximity to Orio al Serio international airport. 

The idea of organising a new trade fair for the subcontracting sector came about following the participation of more than 290 Italian companies in the 2023 edition of interzum, a strong signal of the Italian market's interest in the Cologne event, which has always anticipated trends in the subcontracting and interior design sector.


An innovative exhibition format

An innovative exhibition format dedicated to the Italian and European market, interzum forum italy is a concentrated and effective two-day event designed to allow companies and visitors to benefit from a platform that combines updating opportunities and marketplace, with a minimum organisational and economic commitment for exhibitors. Thomas Rosolia, managing director of Koelnmesse Italia, says: "We are very positive, ever since the launch of interzum forum italy we have noticed the strong interest of companies in this new format; to date we expect to occupy both pavilions of the fair: a net area of 6000sqm with about 300 exhibitors and an attendance of 6,000 visitors from all over Europe".


An important educational and informative opportunity 

Another strong point of interzum forum italy will be the rich conference programme aimed at attracting operators in the furnishing and design sector, manufacturers of furnishing materials and technologies, general contractors, companies and design studios, planners and interior designers. 

In addition to the institutional talks, there will be a Trend Stage and a Product Stage, with short B2B meetings that will allow in-depth discussion of the topics of greatest interest and, for companies, presentation of new products. Trends, new technical and technological solutions, new materials, digitisation for production and services will characterise the exhibition spaces, which will also extend into further event areas. 

"We are working to offer industry professionals a high-level congress that can be an educational and informative opportunity. In this regard, we are pleased to announce the collaboration with a number of research and market research bodies, strategic consultancies and universities to support the scientific development of the event's contents," continues Thomas Rosolia. "Among the first confirmed: the CSIL Study Centre, the Digital Innovation Observatories of the School of Management of the Milan Polytechnic, the Department of Materials Science of the University of Milan-Bicocca, the consortium POLI.Design, ADI Industrial Design Association and the Italian-German Chamber of Commerce AHK Italien.
