Inspired by the simplicity of eastern aesthetics, Linda Hamilton merges rich, natural materials into designs for the contemporary lifestyle. Frequent travel to foreign lands has her seeking designers for her thoughtfully curated line of global goods.
A four-year study of art, architecture, and interior architecture at the California College of the Arts, Linda Hamilton has embraced wearing every hat imaginable including traveler, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and designer of goods bearing the Nomad Chic label. This experiential design method which hails from her own nomadic lifestyle has been a constant thread throughout her endeavors to bring a fresh new world to our doorstep. Not just a gypsy. Her story started by creating stunning and stylized high profile commercial and residential interiors landing designs for Bali-based Budiasa inside leading design showrooms including De Sousa Hughes/San Francisco, Mirak/Los Angeles, and Thomas Job/Chicago. While blazing a trail through some of the hottest design publications on the market, a day in the life building the Nomad Chic brand runs the gamut from road- tripping in an iconic Airstream to the southern charms of Biloxi to the sacred temples of Bali. Linda has led a multi-faceted lifestyle which informs her eye for the unusual, an eclectic collage of the globally-minded modernist, simplicity steeped in tradition.
After putting down roots in Bali, she found herself amidst an expat exodus of the post 2002 bombing. The unsettled political culture and inevitable displacement led her to pick up the pieces of friends and family and move on, setting her sights on the creative enclave of Todos Santos, BCS, Mexico.
