    This poster ad for Air France dates from 1950, in the early days of mass commercial aviation. Back then flying was fashionable. People would often dress up for the occasion, and whilst accessible to more ordinary people than ever before, aviation was still considered a luxury good. This ad speaks to a spirit of optimistic cosmopolitanism after the war years, showing a plane flying over a map in the process of unfurling itself to the excited eyes of a traveller.

    In this gorgeous stationary ad from 1951, a pen and a pencil viewed from above draw lines on a piece of paper. The jaunty angle makes them striking and penetrative, their geometric shapes rising like skyscrapers as if they are leaping from the page. This is a dazzling image, appropriately subdued by the simple use of black and white. This authentic, vintage poster will allow you to drift into a simpler and happier time, a post-war period of consumer affluence.

    This stationary ad from 1951 comes straight from the pages of a French magazine. The beautifully rendered pencil strikes a line under the words ’18 graduations’. Beneath it is a drawing of a candelabra. The early 1950s were a time of increasing consumer affluence for the French, and as luxury became accessible to wider and wider swathes of the population, stationary was no exception. This authentic poster will allow you to drift into the past- to a happier, simpler time.

A symbol of wealth and opulence as well as a characteristic Frenchness, this vintage ad will create an ambience of luxury and cosmopolitanism wherever it finds its home.

    This attractive ad from 1941 was created for the hat manufacturer Fléchet. The calligraphic text in the upper left translates as ‘ambassador of French quality’. The hat is seen floating against a blank flag which emerges from the sea, the implication being that Fléchet hats are cultural and economic ambassadors for the taste and quality of French design, perhaps dwindling beyond the horizon to take the French genius to other shores. Likewise, this ad is a testament to French taste and an ambassador for French style.

    This advertisement from 1946 was illustrated by René Letourneur for the clothing company Christian Serge. It is a dynamic and exciting image that reflects the increase in leisure time and tourism that accompanied the French post-war boom and the sense of optimism many felt. The image of the skier is rendered in block colours and bursts onto the page from the bottom right at speed. Snowy mountains, possibly the alps, reign vertiginously above her. This advertisement has a bon viveur spirit that will add colour and excitement to any interior.

    Commonly called cherubim, the infants which populate this image are actually called putto- the winged babies who entertain the denizens of heaven. In this cartoonish ad from 1952 a quartet of putti brandishing mandolin, pan pipe, harp and conductor’s wand serenade a sleeping woman, who dozes soundly. The slogan “portée par un nuage” means ‘carried by a cloud’, describing the extraordinary comfort of a Dunlopillo bed. This charming scene is perfect for spaces of relaxation, like a bathroom or bedroom.
