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.

The General Assembly of Eumabois confirms in its entirety the Board of Directors

The General Assembly of Eumabois, the European federation of woodworking machinery manufacturers, has confirmed in its entirety the Board of Directors, which will then carry out a second mandate for the next three years.
The Board of Directors is composed as follows: Jürgen Köppelm, President (VDMA), Luigi De Vito, Vice-President (ACIMALL), Samuel Hänni - Director (Swiss Association, HBT), Wolfgang Rohner - Director (Austrian Association, FMMI), Mustafa Sabri Erol - Director (Turkish Association, AIMSAD) and Erich Zeller - Auditor (Swiss Association, HBT).
The President and CEO of Leitz GmbH & Co. KG, Jürgen Köppel, will continue to bring his long experience in the wood processing industry to help improve the business and growth of Eumabois. Luigi De Vito, Director Wood Division of SCM, will bring his extensive international experience to the board in the role of Vice President. President and Vice President will continue the development work of Eumabois with the aim of creating a positive environment for the European woodworking machinery industry.
The team will be completed by three re-elected board members, Mustafa Sabri Erol (Törk Makine A.S.), Samuel Hänni (Lamello AG) and Wolfgang Rohner (Ima-Schelling Anlagenbau GmbH), who will bring their experience in the sector and the strong support of their respective associations. Erich Zeller, confirmed as Auditor, has a long career at Lamello and Eumabois, and will also provide the board with his financial expertise.

Excellent results achieved in the last three years by the Board of Directors

The Council's proposal for confirmation was unanimously approved by the General Assembly, hosted by the Czech association SVDSZ last November in Brno, due to the excellent results achieved in the last three years, first of all the participation in projects that are very important for the future of the European woodworking industry. OPC UA (Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture), Marketing Intelligence Project and ETML (European Tool-Machine Language) are just a few examples of the initiatives that Eumabois will pursue in the coming years. An important topic that will be further developed by the re-elected Council is the increasing attention to machine safety regulations and the international trade fair context.
We would also like to point out another new appointment: Dr. Maddalena Goi will take charge of the numerous activities of the Eumabois Federation even though the secretariat will continue to be managed by Acimall, the Italian Association of woodworking machinery and accessories manufacturers.
Maddalena Goi, who boasts many experiences in foreign markets, in particular those of the Gulf countries, will be present at some of the exhibitions supported by Eumabois including Eurobois in Lyon (4-7 February), Holz-Handwerk in Nuremberg (18-21 March) and the Italian appointment of Xylexpo in Milan (26-29 May).
