TRIANG SPOT ON AND DOLLIES HOME KITCHEN FURNITURE

Triang Spot On furniture was produced in 1960.  The style of this furniture being the late 1950’s The furniture made from moulded plastic and metal.  It was sold in individual boxes, with the ‘Triang’ and ‘Spot On’ Logos, on a pink and cream box.  The Range also included ‘Dollies Home’ introduced in 1962, which consisted mainly of room sets.  The boxes they were sold in were printed to represent the room, kitchen, bedroom etc. The ‘Triang’, ‘Spot On’ and ‘Dollies Home’ range continued until 1964.

JENNY’S HOME

As fashion and style move on so did Triang and in 1964, they launched a new range of furniture in collaboration with ‘Homes and Gardens’ magazine.  This co-insided with the introduction of the ‘Jenny’s Home ‘ Room Boxes, many of them came ready furnished and could be joined together.  Much of the furniture of the ‘Triang’ ‘ Spot On Range’, either changed in style or bright modern colours.  Being made now completely of plastic, with the removal of the metal fittings.  The packaging also changed with a move away from pink to blue, yellow, red and orange. With a smart new logo in a red and pink heart, with Jenny’s Home in the middle, and the words ‘the home that g-r-o-w-s around it. Individual items and small room sets, now on  blister pack cards and room sets in plastic covered square flat boxes.

    Interesting to see the choice between metal and plastic.As a child I would have wanted the realism of metal, but now I rather like the way the plastic goes with the modern look of the ’60’s.
