Lonetree was born out of a desire to have the perfect space to inspire, create and bring people together. While finishing her Master’s thesis at The Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC, owner Michelle Beamer envisioned a type of store which displayed goods as a landscape of ever-changing curated vignettes. The intention of Lonetree is not to hew to a prescribed “look” but rather to encourage clients to tap into their own unique self-expression. Being at “Home” is about a place that feels, functions and looks great and tells a story.
While imagining this space for her thesis, she chose a historic warehouse building set in the Old Market district in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, where she is from. The market housed goods from furs to chewing gum to awaiting distribution across the country. She was inspired by a story she read during her research which told of traders traveling by boat along the Missouri river to bring their goods to market; the trader told that once he glimpsed the lone tree on the hill, he knew their arrival to market was imminent.
There is an excitement to finding new and vintage things, and a great joy in putting a variety of pieces together to create unique and beautiful spaces for home. We at Lonetree are thrilled to be able to showcase our approach to design and decoration and assist you in whatever capacity you need, whether it's helping you find the perfect rug or chair, or redesigning your entire home near or far.
