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.

Primary Wood: Bog Oak

At the end of the last ice age, rising water levels caused huge oak forests throughout England, Ireland, and other parts of Europe to die standing and fall into the muck. For the last 3,000 - 5,000 years these trees have been preserved in anaerobic conditions underneath peat bogs. Their age has changed their color to a deep black with rich brown grain.

Inlay: Ancient Kauri

50,000 years ago in what is now Northern New Zealand, a major natural event felled huge forests of kauri trees that had been growing for some 2,000 years. This event also created bogs in the area, which protected these giants from the elements. Today these trees are typically found under farmland, where they are excavated carefully and the ground is returned to its previous contours.
