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@home: a digital platform to offer solutions in tune with current challenges

interzum 2021, the major trade fair for furniture components, supplies and semi-finished products, will take place from 4 to 7 May, but this year the event will be online only thanks to the digital platform interzum@home.
The leading platform for the furniture manufacturing and interior design industry will offer a completely new trade fair experience to exhibitors and visitors alike, while still providing them with all the benefits they expect from an event like interzum: opportunities to get in touch, to compare notes, to discover trends and products for designing furniture that responds to a society in constant and rapid change.


An effective and comprehensive digital platform

As a state-of-the-art digital platform, interzum@home is perfectly in tune with the times, offering creative solutions to current challenges. Companies such as Hettich, Häfele, Blum, Vauth-Sagel, Grass, Kesseböhmer, Schüco Alu Competence, Titus, Samet, Rehau, Sugatsune, Elektra, Schattdecor, Impress, Continental, Sonae Arauco, Unilin, Leggett & Platt and Fecken-Kirfel have already confirmed their participation in interzum@home.
At this particular time the industry needs a forum for a global exchange of ideas and inspiration, which the digital format of interzum will intelligently provide. The digital offering is not to be seen as a simple substitute for the in-person event, but can offer completely new perspectives. Those who wish to exchange views with industry experts or find inspiration from the trends set by exhibitors will be able to do so in a completely relaxed atmosphere and at a time that suits them best.


Numerous special events

There will also be numerous special events accompanying the online fair: conferences, seminars, virtual meetings with which to reach an international audience that has been far too long removed from the great world showcase.
The materials.cologne conference and the digital stages dedicated to trends, smart green materials and mattress recycling will address very interesting topics on a commercial level. The Product Stage as a showcase for exhibitors and the interzum awards will draw attention to new products and innovative solutions from exhibitors.


interzum award: intelligent material & design 2021

Participants at interzum@home 2021 can nominate their technological innovations, pioneering materials and product innovations for the interzum award: intelligent material & design 2021. The competition, organised for the eleventh time by Koelnmesse in cooperation with Red Dot, aims to recognise the design quality of the products and materials presented at interzum.
Entries, to be submitted by 12 April, will this year only be accepted in digital format, in the following categories: “Function & Components“, “Materials & Nature“ and “Textile & Machinery“.
A jury of six experts will assess all competition entries in terms of design quality, functionality and innovation potential in the three categories. The interzum awards ceremony will take place on 4 May 2021, also in digital format.
