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!


I generally find time to read two publications, Elle Decor and The Economist; I enjoy both for totally different reasons.  In the December 13th issue of The Economist  there is a special report on the luxury market....a topic that fascinates me.  The definition of luxury is completely subjective and personal.  Luxury purchases for some may be everyday items to others.  In the global luxury market two thirds of the spending goes for luxury cars and luxury personal goods, ie, fashion, perfume and jewelry.  Thank goodness furniture is part of the luxury market!  It seems luxury items can be completely superfluous and yet there are items that can make one's life feel a little richer.  Luxury items for me are items for my home; fashion, cars and travelling are not that important to me.  With that said I owned a 1947 Cadillac two-door fastback that was very luxurious and a joy to drive.  I have invested in nice furniture, original artwork and lighting that make coming home enjoyable.  I have always extolled buying the best of anything that you can afford.  I enjoy selling a better product;  I get just as much joy selling a luxurious 2000.00 sofa as much as a luxurious 5000.00 one.  Whatever your definition of luxury is here's hoping 2015 brings you lots of it!
