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: not just edges, but also a selected range of surfaces

Ostermann will present at the next Sicam not only edges, profiles, glues and detergents, but also, for the first time, a selected range of surfaces.

RollBeton, RollRost and Linoleum for Forbo furnishings: these are the three trendy surfaces that enrich the already vast range of products proposed by the company, offering customers a new inspiration for furnishings.


RollBeton and RollRost for an industrial look

Among the most current design trends there is the so-called “Industrial look“ that is inserted not only in the contract or in furniture for shops, but is increasingly used also for renovations and for the realization of private projects. The new RollBeton (Roll Cement) and RollRost (Roll Rust) surfaces, light and flexible, respond precisely to this need.

RollBeton gives the environment a modern appearance. The supply also includes a pack of putty to seal joints, edges and sides. The material is light, flexible and antistatic and, unlike concrete, it can be processed practically without creating dust.

As for RollRost, it is a surface with mineral fillet cross-linked with synthetic resin and oxidized iron filings; RollRost looks like real rusty iron at the look and feel. Unlike this however, it is a flexible and light material and can be easily worked.

The RollBeton and RollRost surfaces are packaged manually, so each piece is unique and can have slight variations in colour. For this reason the colour shades proposed are purely indicative, an exact match of the colours to the samples is impossible. These are CE certified products, made in Germany. Both surfaces have a thickness of 1-2,5 mm and are provided on the back of a glass fibre layer as a support. They are supplied in rolls in the dimensions of 3000 x 1000 mm and are available in 4 different decors.


Linoleum for Forbo furniture

Thanks to its unique appearance and tactile effect, Linoleum for furniture gives the horizontal and vertical surfaces a distinct naturalness. Ostermann Italia now has in its range the entire Linoleum for Forbo furnishings collection and delivers in very small quantities directly from its warehouse.
