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.

Salone del Mobile.Milano: ISO 20121 certification obtained for sustainable event management

Salone del Mobile.Milano obtains ISO 20121 certification for its sustainable event management system. The announcement of this important milestone comes at the same time as the participation in Sustainable Italy, a project promoted by the Consulate General of Italy in New York, in collaboration with ICE and under the coordination of the Embassy in Washington, within the Nest Climate Campus, partner of Climate Week NYC, the most important annual event on the subject of combating climate change and environmental sustainability.


Commitment to sustainable change

With the ISO 20121 certification for its event sustainability management system, Salone del Mobile.Milano reaffirms its commitment to sustainable change, guiding its business model along a path of responsible and inclusive development, which can be a reference and inspiration for the entire sector. The verification activity was carried out by the multinational certification body RINA. 

The certification recognises and rewards the Show's ethical and sustainable path and steers the event's management system towards continuous improvement. 

Maria Porro, President of Salone del Mobile.Milano commented: "I consider this certification as a new starting point: by continuing to question our own environmental impact and cultivating sustainable behaviour, also through the involvement and support of our stakeholders, we want to become a reference point and source of inspiration for the entire sector and pursue a business model that is as ethical as possible, capable of responding intelligently and consistently to the increasingly complex challenges that the future holds in store for us".


The Salone at Sustainable Italy

In order to reaffirm its commitment along a path of inclusive, responsible and sustainable development, the Salone del Mobile.Milano is among the protagonists of Sustainable Italy, a review of the best case histories of Italian companies committed to the path towards a real ecological and climate transition.

For the occasion, the Salone will illustrate "Design with Nature", the installation developed together with architect Mario Cucinella, as part of the 60th anniversary edition of the Show in 2022: the project reasoned on the themes of circular economy and reuse, starting from the idea that the city is the possible "reserve" of the future, where to find most of the raw materials useful for construction. The Salone intends to bring its reflections on ethics, circularity, domestic space, participatory architecture, urban regeneration, recycling and upcycling to the attention of an international parterre of protagonists of the cultural debate.
