Original Collection

The collection that launched the Allegory brand features bold design, deep stories, and a wide variety of options for all tastes and budgets.

Prior to the onset and broad adoption of refrigeration technology, food preservation was a much more complex task. Pickling was a primary method of food preservation and a lifeline for many homes. Large amounts of lumber were required to construct pickling vats. Today these vats are no longer necessary in such quantity, and they provide an excellent source of reclaimed lumber. The pickling solution used in the process adds beautiful character to the wood.

They saw much of Biblical history unfold, and theystill stand today to bear witness to the trials faced by theregion. These trees are highly protected; those who maintain them gather branch trimmings and deadfall and make them available to tourists andwoodworkers.
