Nomad is 8′ wide, 24′ long, 9’6″ tall, and fully complete upon delivery.  That means it arrives with windows, doors, insulation, no-VOC paints, plumbing, fixtures, and lights — all according to code.” – Jetson Green

Nomad – Simple, Modern, Mobile Furniture

Clever made in America modular furniture that’s easily transportable for the nomads among us. While built-ins seem more ideal for a tiny house on wheels, these seem great for those moving from space to space.

“Nomad is furniture designed with this “modern nomad” in mind.  furniture designed to be simple, minimal, easy to assemble, disassemble, and move. nomad is modular and uses a tool-less joint system, so you never have screws or tools to keep track of.  nomad is made in the USA from local eco-friendly materials.  we love what we do.  hope you enjoy it too!”

Just a side note…  I’d love to see some designs from these folks that allow the interchanging of parts to make all sorts of different units… like lego are to toys, nomad could be to furniture.
