Our company was born in Hungary, in the heart of the European forest, in direct contact with the best raw material: Slavonian oak. We decided to get as close as possible to the origin of raw material, here wood is worked by those who know it and used it for centuries: our expert craftsmen transform logs into parquet and top-quality coverings. We are aware of the great resource we have which must be safeguarded in every way. In our 70,000 square meters of production units, we are everyday committed to offer a selection of surfaces from certified raw material, the result of a process that respects forests’ life.
From the log to the finished floor, in Mardegan Legno we follow every step of the process because we want to guarantee the highest quality of each floor.

Cutting the logs
In order to make the value chain increasingly functional, consuming less and using responsibly materials, energy and water is crucial. We use each log carefully, taking the greatest possible care over how and how much to cut to avoid wasting the result of centuries of growth in just a few moments. That is why our boards are available in a range of sizes, just as they were sawn
Selecting the slat and assembling the layers
The production process begins with removing the bark and cutting the log into slat of different sizes and thicknesses. These are dried in ovens fuelled by the cutting residues, then when ready, they receive the first surface treatment.
At the end of this phase, the slat are meticulously divided into three main types known as “selections”. The trained eye of our experts classifies the individual boards according to the design created by nature.
Each process is a combination of unique gestures, steeped in passion and experience. We employ the skills of craftsmen to bring out all the richness of the wood. Hand-planed, brushed, sandblasted, sawn, rounded or worn, Mardegan Legno floors are unique as they are the result of the natural qualities of the constituent material and the rediscovery of traditional hand working techniques.
Mardegan Legno floors stand out for the large number of colours available.
Even more exceptional is the fact that all the finishings are made by hand, so cannot be reproduced mechanically, the result of Giuseppe Mardegan’s research and passion for colour. Each shade is handmade by superimposing different nuances and may be created using the brush, spray or rag technique, depending on the version.
It is the hands of our master craftsmen that make each nuance unique.
All Mardegan Legno surface finishings are free from formaldehyde and toxic or harmful substances. We use UV dried water-based varnishes, or special oil based mixtures to ensure they retain their characteristics over time with just simple regular maintenance.
Creating each parquet floor by hand makes it exclusive and unrepeatable.
Each floor is unique, with its own characteristic patterns, finishings and colours.
We are so careful and so proud of the quality of our products that we sign each of them with our trademark, the dragonfly, symbol of delicacy and elegance, but also of our enthusiasm when we look at the result of our work.
The environmental responsibility of Mardegan Legno
Mardegan Legno chooses every day to implement a sustainable development model. This allows to keep under control the impact of its activity on the environment. With this Decalogue, based on Federlegno’s guidelines, Mardegan Legno answers the global challenges of sustainability, defining real and distinctive actions for the company.
There is something that will never be achieved by any machinery: it is the knowledge of the expert hands that work wood, bringing out all its value. A set of gestures and priceless skills that, merging, make each floor unique compared to all the others already produced.
Available 12 different finishings, the result of the rediscovery and combination of traditional craftsmanship techniques.
The floor’s finishing comes to life, table after table, assuming its own characteristics that change depending on the response of the wood to the tools used such as planer, saw or brushes; every single detail will be enhanced even more by painting.
Our work goes beyond than the simple realization of a surface, it becomes a mission oriented to the excellence of result, to the valorization of people, to the safeguard of nature.
Mardegan Legno’s floor: guarantee, safety and resistance
Safe and tested surfaces
Wood is an important, precious and refined material.
According to our principles and philosophy, we carried out a series of “resistance tests” at Catas (R&D centre and testing laboratories for wood and furniture, environment and food) to reassure you about your choice: your floor is safe and resistant. If it changes, it will only be because of the natural spontaneous evolution of the wood.
Respecting people and environment.
