Shopper’s Diary: G.A.D. in Gotland

November 15, 2010

Located in Visby, a medieval town on the Swedish island of Gotland, G.A.D. is a furniture company that makes clean-lined, modern pieces using "age-old joinery techniques and solid materials, which ensure that the design and the quality of our furniture will last for years." Scandinavian architects and designers such as Thomas Sandell (see the cabin interior in Architect Visit: Sandell Sandberg in Gotland and Architect Visit: Beach Cabins from Sommarnojen) favor their work for its craftsmanship, clean lines, and natural finishes (linseed-based oils, soap, or oil-based tempura paints). Selected products are available in the US through Great Nordic Design.
