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.

Verinlegno paints with increasingly green formulations
Under the terms of the "Patent Cooperation Treaty", Verinlegno has patented the use of completely natural antioxidant additives in the formulation of coatings for frames.  The result of 3 years of research, the license was presented at the latest Sicam expo and is valid in Europe, including Italy, and in Canada.


Coatings with high protective standards

The Hydro Ecomat Larice and Hydro Ecomat Mogano top coats incorporate a UV filter based exclusively on plant extracts, with no recourse to synthetic molecules. These compounds maintain and enhance the highest protective standards of the coatings for frames and shutters on the market.

The frames deteriorate over time, manifesting a loss of gloss, yellowing or alteration of the color, chalking, and the appearance of fractures in the protective film, followed by damage to the wooden support. In order to slow down and avoid these alterations as much as possible, two types of antioxidant additives are used in the coatings: those that inhibit the formation of free radicals generated by UV rays and those that act instead by blocking the radicals already formed. The durability of the protective shield over time depends on the concentration of the antioxidants present in the coating.


Green formulations

The compounds created by the Verinlegno laboratory in collaboration with the CNR in Sassari and the super-vision of Professor Mauro Marchetti, thanks to their patented structure, guarantee greater durability and longer color persistence. Their ability to neutralize the visible effect of UV rays and capture free radicals can be up to five times higher than market standards. What's more, the new coating formulations are also sustainable because they replace synthetic additives with the aim of reducing or eliminating the use of hazardous substances.

The result achieved is the fruit of a synergy of intentions between the Tuscany Regional Authority, which partly funded the project, the CNR in Sassari, specifically the Institute of Chemistry of Organometallic Compounds and the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, and the Verinlegno laboratory.
