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!

Holiday Decorations

I have decided that i really like when people decorate their homes for the holidays.  I never used to; living by myself, I really could not be bothered.  I bought a 1960 split level from the original owners.  In cleaning out the workroom I found some homemade Halloween decorations the previous owner had made; he was an amateur wood worker.  They had three children, two boys and a girl.  He made two boy ghosts, one girl ghost and a black cat.  I love them!  The girl ghost is distinguished by long eyelashes and a red bow in her "hair"!  Somehow this changed my mind about decorating for the holidays.  These are out and the end of my driveway.  There seems to be a sense of community created with holiday decorations.  I also appreciate the amount of effort some homeowners exert in decorating.  Of course all decorations should be taken down after the holiday is over... although leaving Christmas decorations up all year is the epitome of efficiency!
