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.

Ostermann: Constant attention to customer needs

A unique service, geared to customer needs, a constantly growing product range and extreme speed of delivery: these are the main pillars of Ostermann's corporate philosophy. 

We put a few questions to Valentina Beccaro, Managing Director of Ostermann Italy, to find out about the company's new products and services. 


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? 

2023 was another very successful year for Ostermann. We launched several new products, such as edgings with customised decors, linoleum edgings and our new moss surface, and further expanded the range of our REDOCOL brand. We also successfully completed two important trade fairs, such as Interzum in Cologne and Sicam in Pordenone.

Linoleum edging in a wide range of colours 

For 2024, we naturally want to continue with what has been our hallmark for years, i.e. with many services, variety and speed. From January we will offer new furniture edgings in polypropylene (PP). In addition, this year we expect many new collections from panel manufacturers, for which we will naturally offer matching edgings. One example is the new Dekorativ 24 collection from Egger.

New from Ostermann: new furniture edgings made of polypropylene (PP) 


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

The topic of sustainability is certainly a complex issue that naturally also plays an important role for us: in our corporate culture, in the energy management of our buildings and, of course, in the planning of our product range. The high quality of our products helps to ensure that our customers can produce furniture that can be used by their end customers in the long term. In order to bring greener products onto the market, which are adapted to customer demands, we launched our 'REDOCOL greenline' brand.


What importance do you place on service for the satisfaction of your customers and how does it materialise? 

Service has always been one of the pillars of our company philosophy, along with the variety of our product range and speed of delivery. 'New needs - new solutions' is our motto: we listen, think together, look ahead and develop solutions adapted to our customers' requirements. Over the years, this has led us to develop many innovative services that have become market standards. From the supply of edgings starting from 1 metre or in any desired width up to 100 mm, to our numerous configurators, through which our customers can individually design furniture elements such as fronts or customised shutters.

A service offered by Ostermann: borders with customised decors 

We have also just introduced two new services. Ostermann now also supplies custom-made linear lighting elements. In addition, for those customers who do not know what elements they need for their projects, Ostermann offers a free lighting design service.
