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.

Sicam 2023: a format that is always a winner

The 14th edition of Sicam, which took place in Pordenone from 17 to 20 October, ended with a success that exceeded the best expectations: around 9,000 companies, for a total of well over 20,000 attendees over the four opening days, from 112 countries from all over the world came to the fair in Pordenone to meet their best suppliers. 

There were many novelties proposed by the exhibitors in the sector of components and accessories for the furniture industry: the presence of more than 650 exhibitors from Italy and 34 other foreign countries confirmed Sicam as an important event where choices are made and trends are outlined that will characterise the next furniture season all over the world. 

In terms of exhibition space, Sicam 2023 also saw a growth compared to previous editions: this year's fair extended over 18,420 square metres of net stand space, on a gross area of 40,000 square metres, in ten pavilions. For the first time, the new Hall 5 was used, adding a new space of 3,000 square metres. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)


A strongly loyal fair 

As always, business meetings and high-profile trade relations characterised the exhibition. "They were confirmed as the strong point of the Sicam format," emphasised Carlo Giobbi, who took the opportunity of this edition to announce the handover of Sicam management to Carolina and Michele Giobbi

The Pordenone event is a complex but well-tested machine that has by now achieved a very high level of loyalty: many exhibiting companies have in fact already confirmed their participation for the next edition. An important signal that underlines the effectiveness of Sicam for its format, but also for its timing and location in the heart of the North East. 


Enjoy Pordenone: the "Fuori Salone" of Sicam 

There was a great deal of interest and curiosity surrounding the debut of "Enjoy Pordenone with Sicam", the platform desired by the city authorities to celebrate a trade fair that attracts thousands of people who were able to take part in over 90 appointments, meetings, exhibitions and initiatives in the city. 

The appointment for Sicam 2024 is set in Pordenone from Tuesday 15 to Friday 18 October.
