Early farmers used woods that were most locally available – Oak, Beech, Chestnut, Elm, Hickory, Maple and other trees; and this is what emerges from a barn dismantled generations later. We could separate the salvaged timber, but the woods together, as a kind of dressed up reflection of the original forest and barn composition, reflect the natural variety and harmony of its roots. The range of wood types find a natural and unlikely setting in the heart of the city.

Color and Surface
The light to darker brown hues fall within a similar color range. And while the figure and grain is equally varied, they are all hardwoods, and exhibit compatibility throughout their transformation. The Anthology is alternately sophisticated and playful, and has served a range of environments – from parlors looking for a less formal edge, to a chain of organic burger restaurants.
