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.

OMGE: new products and ambitious marketing goals for 2024

Commitment and perseverance to achieve the set goals: these are the values at the heart of the innovation process that Omge, a company specialising in the production of telescopic drawer slides, furniture sliding systems and furniture components, has been undertaking for some years now with the intention of broadening its commercial horizons. 

The knowledge and experience gained over many years of activity and collaboration with leading companies in the sector and its design capacity make it flexible and dynamic, ready to respond to the different market expectations, thus enabling product customisation

Precisely about product customisation, corporate sustainability and the strategies for 2024, we talk to Luca Eustacchioni, CEO of Omge.


Start of the year, time to take stock and strategise for the future. What goals do you set yourself to tackle the markets in 2024?

 The last few years, for reasons we all know by now, have led companies to change their business logic, forcing management to adopt and develop alternative strategies and procedures. 

To set as a goal a return to a pre-pandemic situation is in my opinion, despite the fact that little time has passed, a somewhat anachronistic goal because, as I repeat, the commercial logics, and consequently the strategies that a company must put in place, are no longer the same. 

The exit from the pandemic had created a certain enthusiasm in the markets which, in truth, during the past year for various reasons, not least the instability arising from geopolitical issues, has waned somewhat. 

The resulting climate of uncertainty did not, however, affect our strategies, which for 2024 represent the continuation of what we started last year with the development and presentation of new products.

Further increasing the use of B2B to retain existing customers and developing a marketing plan more oriented towards the digital world are the tools with which the company intends to improve the brand and seek new customers in 2024.


Sustainability is now considered a great opportunity for companies. How is this concern for the environment expressed in your company? 

I see that in recent times it is common practice to link the concept of sustainability to arguments that can only be attributed to environmental and social factors, forgetting what in my opinion is the most important factor for the sustainability of a company, namely the economic factor

The sustainable company must be able to guarantee economic remuneration to its workers, in compliance with the laws in force, and to do so in a socially healthy and positive environment, with particular attention to environmental impact. 

All this in the full conviction that sustainability is not a cost, but an investment with a clear return in terms of image and more. 

In this regard, I must say that our company was a bit of a pioneer, having equipped itself with an extensive photovoltaic system when sustainability was not yet a recurring concept in the thoughts of the industrial world. 

The code of ethics the company has adopted and the attention paid to suppliers' compliance with the rules help to define Omge SpA as a company that is particularly attentive to environmental issues.


Design and technological innovation were until now the winning elements for new products; to these is now added the customisation factor, which is also becoming increasingly important in the subcontracting sector for the furniture industry. How do you respond to this trend? 

By its very nature, Omge SpA is a company well aware of how customisation, and I would add product customisation, plays a well-defined role in various sectors, including that of subcontracting for the furniture industry.

Addressing different industries, we are well aware of the importance of being able to guarantee both aesthetic and technical multi-functionality, and therefore we are certainly not unprepared for this need. 

Today, the spasmodic quest to attract the customer's attention has extended the concept of customisation to the mass market as well. In fact, the old-fashioned mass market forces companies to submit to imposed rules that cannot always be accepted, so the possibility of being able to create and offer flexibility to customers is welcome. 

In our case, I would say that we are particularly inclined towards the true customisation of a product precisely because of our propensity to target the industrial world.
