About us

Find out who we are
You might be asking, why Tabula Rasa? The answer is simple: Who doesn't love a clean slate?

Tabula Rasa Furnishings and Décor is family owned and operated out of a small home workshop in Crosslake, MN. The business was started in July 2015 by builder extraordinaire – Colin Andrews, and is supported by his wife, Carissa Andrews. What started as a side adventure to supplement income and keep Colin’s creative builder satiated, eventually became his full-time passion. At many times of the day, you’ll find Colin either staining wood to the perfect color or in the workshop with the power tools on. Colin has been in all aspects of building and design from the large scale to the very small and everything in between. He’s worked for a number of construction companies, both in the UK and in the Brainerd Lakes Area, until settling on his own unique business. Carissa’s the voice (in-person and on the phone) of Tabula Rasa to Colin’s brain and brawn. If you email or call in, you’ll likely find her on the other end of the line. Regardless of your furnishing needs, we know you’ll find our spectacular craftsmanship to be just what you were searching for. Welcome to Tabula Rasa Furnishings & Décor. Are you ready to start your new beginning? Perhaps even with a British Twist?
