Charles W. Allen was an american interior designer who worked for Regil de Yucatán, a furniture company active in the Yucatan Peninsula, Allen was known for its quality artisan furniture pieces produced in mahogany and cedar woods during the 1950’s. At that time, the company commissioned  Allen a “Contemporary Furniture Line”, targeted to satisfy the taste of the American market.


Allen´s contemporary line made its way to Chicago and New York, and to Mexico City through the DECOR,  S.A. showroom located on the elegant Reforma Avenue. Charles W. Allen, who was an “aficionado” of the native woods and natural finishes found in Yucatan, certainly achieved a smooth, sculptured effect with this sui generisfurniture line made in solid mahogany wood including hand-woven sisal and bright polished brass fittings.
