It doesn't get more locally produced than this. Ardre percussion table is made in this version of Gotland core pine grown and sawn in Ardre parish, just twenty minutes from our joinery.
The core pine from Gotland is taken from the core of firs that have grown slowly in barren soil, which makes it particularly saturated in hartz and resin substances, and thus heavy. The grain of the wood gives a beautiful and lively material with a very "natural wood feel".
In the joinery, we carefully finish the silky smooth surfaces in several layers with intermediate sanding by hand. The surface treatment is done with white-pigmented soap, which gives a bright, durable and easy-care table top, which grays over time and acquires an almost antique patina.
Ardre impact table is practical because it can be adapted to both the room and the group with a simple hand. With both panels unfolded, eight chairs can be accommodated, and with the panels folded down, two chairs can stand facing each other at the relatively wide center section.
The base of the table can be painted in one of ourstandardcolors or any color of your choice (which you specify with a color code) for an additional charge. Regardless of standard color or optional color, state your choice in the comments field when placing your order.

The story of Ardre from Ardre
2022 will be 25 years since Kristian Eriksson founded GAD and designed classic Ardre percussion tables for his Gotlandsgård in Ardre parish. For a quarter of a century, we have done what we believe in: Real furniture in real materials, with all manufacturing in Sweden.
To celebrate this and raise our sustainability ambitions another step, we are relaunching Ardre percussion table in Gotland heartwood pine. Of course, we and others with us will build furniture from this fantastic material - and other Swedish wood. That demand is growing among you customers and us manufacturers is an important part, and that we have sawmills and timber players who actively contribute to making Swedish furniture wood available to another.
We personally have two heroes at Ardre to thank for this launch, Lasse Olsson and Ove Nilsson. Both families have been in Ardre and owned the forest and the saw for generations, and now they work for more people to choose Gotland core wood, and very concretely the trees that took root when their grandfathers' parents owned the forest and the saw, in the latter half of the 1800s the number.
In other words, choosing a Gotland core pine percussion table from Ardre is taking part in a heritage far older than GAD's 25 years. That thought makes us humble and proud.
