The Parquet Portrait of Olympic medalist Bashir

Marathon champion Bashir Abdi is pure inspiration. His talent and perseverance take him to every corner of the world, but his heart is in Ghent. Here, surrounded by his family on the floor of his living room, Bashir can truly unwind.


At home with marathon champion Bashir the atmosphere is casual. The living space is light and open, with wide oak planks that direct your gaze to the garden. For Bashir, there’s no place like home. He doesn't need luxuries. Sitting here on the floor and watching his children play is all he could ever wish for.


Bashir enjoys the time he doesn't have to go on foreign internships. It's a busy life, with intensive training periods, foreign internships, competitions and compulsory rest. With a sharp focus on the essentials and on pushing boundaries. But also with time to have fun and enjoy his family. Because here in the midst of it all is his unshakable foundation: on this floor, with his daughter on his knee, he is completely at home.


The family chose for New York Pure Plus. With a knot here and there, this collection has slightly more colour and structure variations for a warm and soft effect. For the upper floor of their home, Bashir and his wife Nimo opted for Mantaro Inca from Parquetvinyl. Curious about more? Take a look inside here.
