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.

STM a interzum: new pull-out tables and table sliding systems

Time to take stock of the exhibitors who took part in the last edition of interzum, including STM, a company that has participated in every edition of the event in Cologne since 1985.
Given the number of visitors from all over the world to the stand and the interest aroused by the new products presented, it can be said that the response was certainly more than positive, confirming the internationalisation that is one of the company's main objectives.
The reasons for the success achieved at the fair, both in terms of the number of visitors and the volume of contacts generated, are the result of a corporate strategy that favours innovation and the study of solutions that adapt or even anticipate the main global trends in the sector.  
The innovations presented are mainly related to the guides and sliding systems for tables.
The prototypes on display have aroused great interest for their technical and functional characteristics: thanks to the materials used, STM products can in fact be installed both in outdoor and indoor tables.


Extension of the range of extractable systems

The company has presented numerous new products that enrich the existing range of products, such as pull-out systems. These are two new models of pull-out table with legs: Family One and Family Duo. The first model has a single central telescopic leg that can be folded over the top to store the pull-out system inside the cabinet; in this case the company has adapted to this new model the already patented leg folding system, which had already met with considerable success.
The second model, Family Duo, has completely new features: the two legs supplied with this system are completely independent of each other and are extracted thanks to a release mechanism, developed by STM, which allows you to easily position and fold them once the table is placed back in its housing inside the cabinet.


Other innovations in sliding systems

No less important are the innovations presented in Cologne for the sliding systems sector: until now, these systems differed depending on whether the customer had to install them in a hollow floor or in solid wood. This is no longer necessary today, as STM has managed to standardise the offer and make it suitable for both situations.
