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!

Artwork

I am a self confessed art nerd.  I mean...how many people do you know that scan the Sotheby's and Christie's web pages to see what's coming up for auctions and what has sold??  In my fantasy world I tell myself that I could have so afforded that Giacometti sculpture or that Paul Klee painting.  And why didn' that Leger sell; the estimate was only 500,000.00!  As with anything I think you should buy the best you can afford; that includes artwork.  Buying original artwork brings me joy.  If you establish a rapport with a gallery owner it is easier to purchase quality, original artwork that can be affordable.  Most will offer time to pay for it.  Artwork adds personality and individualism to a home.  All artwork does not have to be purchased from a gallery.  Some of my favorite pieces were purchased at flea markets or ebay. Should I have invested the money into an IRA instead of artwork....absolutely.  Would that be as fun...no.  I have made some good investments in my art purchases....an added bonus. I am aware that the appreciation of art is completely subjective...but it sure makes coming home from work a little more enjoyable.
