Our Story

In October of 1995, Demir Williford opened the doors of Nomadic Trading Company for the first time.


Starting out in a 600 square foot space, we have since expanded from our Carrboro location and now operate out of a 15k square foot warehouse in Durham packed with vintage rugs, furniture, and hidden antiques from around the globe.



Shelves brimming with one-of-a-kind objects of interest, explorers can find anything from 300 year old olive vases, to flooring made from reclaimed oak pulled from the Dead Sea, to high end designer furniture sourced from European contacts. Custom hand-woven kilim rugs and wooden furniture made in-house assures that no matter the scale of your project, we can find a way to make it work.
