These chairs come in various colours, red, pink, light blue, purple and cream, all have metal legs. You can see from the picture above that the middle chair has thicker legs than the others, making this a later model.  The moulded plastic seat is meant to represent leather.  They came in various colours.

The Triang boxes are a very tight fit, so it is surprising that many survived at all.

This sideboard was a reflection of furniture of the period based on G Plan range.  The doors and drawers on the Sideboard open. This piece carried on into the Jenny’s range of furniture with the black frame-work changing from metal to plastic.

It is amazing that the dining room consists of just three pieces of furniture, although the chairs did come in lots of colours.

Jenny’s Home Sideboard, has  lost its G Plan style, and is now a more simpler, modern  piece of furniture.  As you can see from the picture above, there are now shelves in the left-hand cupboard. [Unfortunately my sideboard has lost its little legs.]
