Meet Our Designers


   
MARY LAUER
In 1994, I opened my first retail store at the Mall of America, featuring handcrafted furniture and intricately hand-painted children’s clothing. The tiny shop rapidly and successfully evolved into both oh baby! and que será. I design oh baby!’s in-house line of children’s clothing, bed linens, and artwork, all of which is handcrafted in Minnesota and can now be found in stores worldwide. In addition to apparel and accessory design, I have a gift for listening and capturing my client’s aesthetic. I have designed retail boutiques, shop fixtures, and primary and vacation homes across the country. I’ve found joy in providing modern interior design inspiration and knowledge to our clients and customers, and I am proud of the design legacy my team has ushered in to Minnesota.
  
    
MICHELLE RABE
I began my venture as an interior designer at Seminole State College in Oviedo, FL. I’ve worked on many residential and commercial projects in Minnesota, and I’ve continued to grow as a designer in an ever-changing creative environment since joining the que será team in 2011. When working on a design project with a client, it starts with learning about who the family or individual is, and then translating that in order to achieve great design that is both functional and beautiful.
 

 DEANNA KALLIN
My love for design began at an early age, painting alongside my dad and learning how to create a home from mom. I still paint and also design a jewelry line that combines vintage and found components with contemporary design. Since earning my design degree from the University of Minnesota, I have worked independently and in studio settings. Your home tells your story; I love modern rooms with Grandma’s antique sideboard sitting under an abstract piece of art, or a traditional home that has softly worn or rustic pieces mixed in.
