Taking centre stage
One of the main eye-catchers in Mark’s Tuscan home? That would have to be Quick-Step’s Variano hardwood flooring. The floors in this collection naturally blend in with the mansion’s contemporary interior design which combines a lot of glass with white surfaces. Moreover, the Variano floors — with their renovated, reclaimed look and subtle edges, cracks and colours — were the perfect match for Mark’s idiosyncratic taste.
Mark: “I looked through stacks of flooring samples. But then I was decided – I quickly fell in love with the Variano Painted White Oak Oiled! I love how it’s now a major part of the house, which had to be a place where I can enjoy family life and not have to be Cavendish — the cyclist — all the time.”
