Trig Modern

Trig: adj. [British dialect] Smart and trim, as in lifestyle, neat. Stylishly fashionable, up-to-date, modish.

Today, people live with a mix of furnishings: Grandma’s antique dresser, a mid-century lamp found on eBay, a leather sofa you actually splurged on. It’s a metaphor of our lives -- an expression of personal style and experiences. 

Trig Modern’s showroom provides a portrait for sensible living -- an antidote to excess, formality and convention. Classic modern furniture rests comfortably beside new modern accessories and iconic items from the mid-20th century. A wide array of modern light fixtures and ceiling fans hang from the ceiling. A wall of colorful pillows, many designed by Trig’s owner, Bob Drake, gazes down upon modern area rugs on the floor.

Our Design Center serves up samples of Trig Modern’s delightfully modern wall coverings and upholstery choices, including a line specifically for apartment dwellers.

At Trig Modern, we believe in a thoughtful approach to modern interiors and furnishings that emphasizes the imagination and comfort of real people living real lives. Drop in sometime. We look forward to meeting you!


In 1994 we started designing and manufacturing hand-made wood-veneer lamps from a small studio in Valencia’s historic centre. Since that time we’ve grown to become one of the world’s most respected boutique lighting companies. 

Despite our growth, some things never change. We still call Valencia home (although we’ve moved out of our studio and into a charming old winery). We still make everything from hand. And we still believe nothing diffuses light as beautifully as natural timber-veneer. 

Our annual catalogue has become a must-have publication, brimming with inspirational, as well as aspirational, photography. The catalogue is a valuable resource for architects and designers looking to utilise our lamps.

We’re also proud of the advent of our new lifestyle magazine. Launched this year, the magazine captures the essence of LZF and the people who choose to live with our lamps.

For the past 20-years our team has enjoyed all the challenges, the ups and downs, the friendships forged, and the sheer act of creating beautiful light. We hope the next two decades are just as exciting.
