Finding high-quality and unique home decor isn’t easy, so it’s nice when a company like EuroDeco — a Japan-based website that specialises in selling a wide variety of vintage magazine advertisements — arrives to make things simple.
All the ads sold on EuroDeco are original pages from magazines and not copies or replicas, which is really impressive. They are mostly from French magazines from the 1920s to the 1960s, and the site owner has them imported directly from different parts of France. The adverts are nicely organised into categories, from luxury fashion, perfume, furniture, lifestyle, and more. All the illustrations in these ads were hand-drawn, and buyers can find out which decade each ad was from the product description.
Naturally, it was the rich collection of vehicle ads that caught our eye. The collection is filled with work from French classic automakers that are defunct, such as Dalahaye and Mathis, and those that are still going strong, like Renault and Peugeot. A few automakers from other countries including Fiat and Ford have also made it onto the list. The watch section is equally attractive, filled with familiar pieces from Patek Philippe, Rolex, Omega, and IWC. There are also a few Leica camera adverts from the time it was trading as Leitz.
While the EuroDeco website is in Japanese, it’s not difficult to navigate and is well worth checking out.
