TRIANG SPOT ON AND DOLLIES HOME LIVING ROOM 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 KITCHEN FURNITURE

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.

 

Triang Lounge

All Tri-ang Doll’s House Pieces are designed to go happily together.  The enterprising doll can buy the furniture shown in this enchanting living room piece and be quite confident of harmonious results.  For example, the sofa in the background may be obtained as these separate easy chairs, either toning or in contrasting colours.  The winged three-piece suite is more luxurious but well worth that little extra; and the adjustable bureau, the bookshelves, T.V. and Hi-Fi contribute to the atmosphere of culture and relaxation. [1961 Catalogue]

    This set is great. The ‘T.V’ chair brought back memories. No one would consider it adequate now in the days of recliner sofas with the arms big enough to rest a tea tray on!

      These were G Plan chairs from the 1950’s, I do remember a similar chair at home when I was young.
