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.

Xylexpo 2020 is renewed: four days of fair and new logo

The next edition of Xylexpo, the international biennial of woodworking technology and components for the furniture industry, will take place from Tuesday 26th to Friday 29th May 2020 at Fiera Milano-Rho. It will therefore last four days instead of five as it unanimously decided the board of directors of Cepra, Acimall's operating arm, owner of the review. The duration of four days now characterizes all the most important events in the world and looks carefully not only at the needs of exhibitors, but also of visitors who favor a smarter fair.
As stated by Luigi De Vito, vice president of Acimall and director of the SCM Division, this hypothesis had already been taken into consideration by Acimall for a long time, in the awareness that the trade fair world, especially the manufacturing industry and even more that of woodworking machinery, requires more time concentrated, optimized and in line with the real needs of their target audience. “By choosing the four-day formula - De Vito commented - for the entire global supply chain, Xylexpo becomes an increasingly concrete, current, modern and effective business opportunity.
The event continues on its path started in the last editions, aiming to be more and more a high technology fair where highly innovative solutions are presented with the aim of finding technologically advanced answers.
“Our interlocutors - explained Raphael Prati, Vice President of Acimall and Director of Corporate Marketing and Communication of Biesse Group - are both the top end of the demand for machines and the artisans and the small and medium enterprises, different but equally careful worlds to the enormous potential that today the technologies for wood and its derivatives can offer“.


A new logo for Xylexpo

Twenty years after the change of name from Interbimall to Xylexpo, here is the launch of the new logo which provides a graphic sign that brings to the fore the vocation of the event, or the tools to work wood and its derivatives, but which also shows a more modern, clear and linear style.
The event director Dario Corbetta explained how the decision to change the logo was determined by the desire to create an easy-to-read image that immediately identifies Xylexpo as the concrete and modern appointment for woodworking technologies.
