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.

The installation of Poliuretano-è at FuoriSalone Milano 2018

Also this year, Poliuretano-è took part in the Fuorisalone 2018, in Zona Tortona, with the Soft + Hard Foams installation, with the aim of deepening the characteristics of flexible polyurethane foams and their possibilities of use.
Flexible polyurethane foam has always been a soft material par excellence and is widely used in the world of design and furniture. It is an extremely versatile product that, thanks to the incredible variety of types, is able to meet all the needs of designers.
Soft + Hard Foams, through this new exhibition format proposed at the Salone del Mobile 2018, wanted to create opportunities for contact between operators in the various sectors, offering them the opportunity to “touch“ the polyurethanes characteristics and consequently better understand their possibility of use.
In fact there are many fields of application of polyurethane products starting from the world of home and furnishing, for the upholstery of sofas and armchairs, for the production of mattresses and pillows, rather than in the world of construction and industry for the insulation of domestic refrigerators and freezers or for the soundproofing of buildings.
Each polyurethane block has a different surface treatment and a different type of density and bearing capacity. Visitors could touch the polyurethane blocks and sit on a part of them to test the versatility of the material both for its softness and for the different shapes.
The quality, durability and specificity of a seat, for example, depend largely on the type of padding, and the polyurethane, with its different types of density and lift, is able to provide products with “tailor made“ features, specific for every need.
Poliuretano-è is a communication project supported by the leading companies in the polyurethane production and by the major international producers who produce additives and components necessary for the industrial development of the material. Poliuretano-è collaborates with major research centres in Italy such as Politecnico di Milano and Material Connexion.
