The 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.

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 excavated carefully and the ground is returned to its previous contours.

Midnight Sinker Cypress

Before the industrial revolution loggers practiced log driving - where floating logs down-river to a temporary sawmill was the first step in the process of creating lumber. Occasionally logs would sink and become trapped in the silt at the bottom of the river. If enough silt was laid down before rot and erosion set in, the log would be preserved. Today these century-old remnants of pre-industrial America are recovered from the bottom of river beds.
