One thing is certain: This buyer shouldn’t have any trouble furnishing his condo at Eighty Seven Park.

Franco Bianchi, CEO of the Holland, Michigan-based furniture manufacturer Haworth, and his wife, Alessandra, purchased unit 504 at the condo tower in North Beach for $6.8 million, records show.

Haworth primarily focuses on commercial office interiors and has over $1.8 billion in global sales, according to its website.

Eighty Seven Park, a 66-unit, 18-story oceanfront tower at 8701 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, was completed in November. The luxury condo building was designed by architect Renzo Piano and developed by Terra, Bizzi & Partners, New Valley and Pacific Eagle.

Last week, Robin van Meeuwen, the CEO of Technological Innovations Group, a Belgian-based IT company, also bought a unit for $6.12 million.
