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.

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

‘G’ GARDEN SET
The box is a bit battered, and is becoming thin along the creases, but I suppose it comes to most of us with age.
The ‘G.’ Garden Set consists of a table and umbrellas , hammock seat , sun lounger , and 2 folding stools .
HAMMOCK SEAT 1027
The frame of the Hammock is metal, the seat and cover are made from moulded coloured plastic.
GARDEN TABLE 1028
As you can see the metal pole on this Garden Table is at a rather jaunty angle.
The table has a weight in the base to stop it from falling over.
FOLDING STOOLS 1030
The folding stools are tiny, it is a wonder they haven’t been lost.
GARDEN SHED SET P
This is a lovely Garden Shed Set, consisting of a Workbench with tools , garden tools , garden roller , lawn mower  and wheelbarrow .
The tools on the workbench and on the back still has its original sellotape.
CARPENTERS BENCH AND TOOLS 1049
The metal frame of the workbench is painted black, the working vice is also metal, but not painted. The workbench top is made from moulded brown plastic, another example of the workbench can be found below.
This is the underside of the workbench showing the vice.
This is another one of the few furniture items that are marked as being made by Tri-ang. This is on the little shelf on the workbench.
The workbench comes with a fretsaw, hacksaw, tenon saw, chisel and plane. They are made of dark brown plastic. They are so tiny it is a wonder they have not been lost over the years.
CARPENTERS BENCH AND TOOLS 1049
This is a lighter version of the workbench. Constructed the same as the one above, the only difference is the colour. The turquoise vice probably dates it nearer to the Jenny’s Home range of furniture.
The black part of the workbench is metal, the rest is made of plastic. There is a little shelf underneath which can be removed.
The workbench comes with a fretsaw, hacksaw, tenon saw, chisel and plane. They are made of plastic which has been painted silver to represent the metal on the tools. They are so tiny it is a wonder they have not been lost over the years.

A nice selection of garden tools consisting of a rake, hoe curved spade, fork and flat spade. They are all made of brown plastic to represent the handles with the tools painted silver to look like metal.

SUN LOUNGE 1118
These sun loungers came in various colours, red, blue, green, yellow, lilac, green and cream.
Quite a strange item this, but it comes in various colours, even more strange was that it came 6 in a box! Jenny must have a lot of friends.
The garden is not just for relaxing in, but also play. There are various garden toys, a slide, sea-saw and swing.
This rather flimsy looking sea-saw is quite sturdy. The base is blue painted metal, the sea-saw is red plastic, but is very well made.

The Marrow and Cauliflower also came in the Triang Spot-On No.1 Vegetable and Fruit Set.
