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.
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.

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.

Individual items and small room sets, now on blister pack cards and room sets in plastic covered square flat boxes.

JENNYS HOME SETEE J3020
The Jennys Home 3 piece suite, was no longer made of metal and plastic. It was made of flocked polystyrene. It is so light and fragile, I am surprised that any have survived. Any heavy handed child could have damaged these.
JENNYS HOME ARM CHAIR J2010
You can see from the chair little dents, and a little loss of flocking.
The underside of both the settee and the arm chair have a plastic base with little legs.
The early bookcase had a metal base with short legs, in the Jenny’s range it changed to plastic. The Bookcase contains various moulded plastic books.
The Jenny’s Home bookcase was the same style as the original Triang, the difference is the base. It is now moulded into the main part of the bookcase, instead of being metal.
